It’s ridiculous for them to be covered under Medicare. But I also think Cialis, Viagra, etc shouldn’t be covered either. How can they say this should be covered and expensive life saving drugs shouldn’t?

There is something seriously wrong when Medicare covers Penis Pumps –BUT NOT – Hearing Aids or Dental for seniors. I guess an erection is more important!?! Upsetting that tax $$ goes for some guys erection. I get it, your sex life is important = but the government shouldn’t have to pay for it!

$172 million in five years to treat ED, which I’m sure is a troubling condition no matter what your age. This seems to outrage people. Yet we ship off 1.5 BILLION dollars as foreign aid to Egypt and nobody bats an eye. The US budget for family planning education and assistance IN OTHER NATIONS is over $500 million. Save your outrage for the more egregious wastes of our tax dollars.
