Don't take my Viagra or Cialis !

Take Me To Post Comment Form



The fact of the matter is that health insurance covers all manner of “things in the sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be,” when it comes to men, and no one has any real complaints about insurance coverage that allows men to continue having sex for non-procreative reasons and despite medical conditions that would otherwise prevent it. Most of them are actually far more expensive than hormonal birth control or intrauterine devices, the two methods of contraception that House and Senate Republicans now want all employers to be able to prevent their insurance companies from covering in employee health insurance packages. Five things that health insurers — including, in some cases, the federal government — currently cover for men’s reproductive tracts.

The government spends $819 million annually on Viagra’

The government spends $782 million annually on Cialis’.

The government spent $172 million in the last five years on penis pumps.

Vasectomies-a $500-$1,000 vasectomy is usually covered by their insurance. (Notably, most insurance plans do not cover a $6,000-$15,000 vasectomy reversal.)

Circumcision-Though circumcision is the subject of much debate in the United States, it is not considered a medically necessary procedure in most cases. Nonetheless, most private insurers cover circumcisions for newborns (which can cost about $100 out-of-pocket) and a few companies cover adult circumcision, which is significantly more expensive.


So why wouldn’t these officials be talking about these subjects if they actually, ACTUALLY cared about spending, and not obsessing over women’s* choices. The answer is obvious, because, it’s not about spending, it’s about scare tactics, control tactics, and the sexism rampant within the GOP.

I didn't want to post information that could be deemed offensive or not lady like so the link is posted for more information about the tools men use that the government shouldn't pay for.

January 26, 2015
