Tax dollars and Viagra

In a vote to “reduce the cost of providing federally funded prescription drugs by eliminating fraudulent payments and prohibiting coverage of Viagra for child molesters and rapists and for drugs intended to induce abortion,” 42 senators said no.  There were, though, 73 who support such an amendment to the healthcare legislation.  This amendment currently has been tabled.

I don’t understand anything less than 100 percent support for such limitations, but if this is the level of morality in the halls of the US Capitol, I am at a total loss for words.  Except for maybe to ask this one question: Do you think a victim of rape, committed by a user of taxpayer-provided Viagra, will have the right to sue those members of Congress who chose to table this motion rather than allow the 73 yea votes to rule?

Don’t be silly.
