Medicaid providing free Viagra to NY state perverts

When you think your tax dollars are finally being spent on good things, a story comes along that shatters all logical rationale.

A new government report, quoted in this morning's New York Post, says that nearly 200 of New York state's worst sexual predators are receiving free viagra thanks to tax dollars.

"The whole purpose of Viagra is to increase sexual performance, is to increase libido, is to increase blood flow, to increase the capacity of the user of the medication to perform sexually," said state Comptroller Alan Hevesi, whose office released the study.

"Some of them, as a condition of their parole, are required to take medication to do the opposite, and this contradicts it. The bottom line is that this is a category of patients that should not be receiving these drugs."

Those receiving the drug have been convicted of everything from first-degree rape to sexual touching, and are Level 3 offenders — who, under state criminal guidelines, are those deemed most likely to commit crimes again.

Some of the predators include a man who sexually assaulted a 2 year-old, and another man who attacked a 90 year-old woman.

Viagra costs ten dollars a pill, and the average monthly dosage is around six pills.

Your tax dollars at work.

They didn't give me a free gun and a kilo of weed when I got out of prison on gang-related mess. So why hook up these ex-cons and/or current criminals with Viagra? Makes the conspiracy blood get to going in me. :-)
