How Much Will Americans Pay For Impotence Drugs For Seniors?

In just one more sign of a conventional health care system gone mad in this country, a Congressional estimate determined Medicare -- meaning most all Americans -- will pay $2 billion alone for impotence drugs for the disabled patients and seniors over the next 10 years.

Of course, that's a pittance in comparison to the $724 billion price tag the Bush administration has projected for covering the prescription drug benefit, also a far cry from recent estimates pegging the final total at twice that amount.

In response to that interesting estimate of impotence drug costs, U.S. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) has written legislation that would ban such coverage, although Medicare is required by law to pay for medically necessary drugs prescribed by a doctor.

Besides, why would anyone want to take a blue pill like Viagra to "treat" impotence that could cause you to temporarily lose your ability to see colors, make you infertile or, for that matter, take away your sight forever?
