A man who wishes to make his penis firmer can do so and have it covered by Medicare or his insurance plan. Hmmm…what are the health benefits? A firmer penis! That’s not a “health” benefit. This procedure is performed so that a man can enjoy sex. It’s all about sex. Recreational sex. Not procreation.
Meanwhile, women’s rights are under attack. The GOP is frothing at the mouth while they think up new ways to destroy the quality of women’s lives in America. They want to take away the availability of birth control. They want to make it impossible to sue an employer if a woman finds out a male counterpart makes more money for doing the same job. They want to eradicate abortions. They want to legislate women’s reproductive rights and de-fund Planned Parenthood, but men over 65 are allowed to enjoy medically enhanced sexual pleasure funded by John and Jane Q. Taxpayer. They want to strip women of their rights and dignity and they have succeeded in convincing the majority of women in their own party to believe this War On Women is nothing more than a liberal distraction.
Unlike penile implants, birth control does, in fact have health benefits. It can reduce severe menstrual cramps, help with endometriosis, be used to fight against ovarian cysts and MOST IMPORTANTLY, IT REDUCES ABORTIONS!
If a man feels the need to firm up his penis with rods and cylinders so that he can enjoy sex, that’s his choice. It IS covered by insurance. Insurance coverage does not use tax dollars to fund procedures. You must ask yourself why the GOP cares so much about contraception when they don’t have to pay for it? The individual pays into to their own benefits but somehow the GOP has convinced its own that by having birth control covered, taxpayers are footing the bill. “I just don’t want to have to pay for YOUR choice,” is their repeated lament. Over and over to the point where it’s obvious that once again a lie that is repeated enough is perceived as truth. On the other hand, Medicare is funded by you, the taxpayer. You are funding these procedures so that elderly men who are getting implants can enjoy intercourse! Where’s the outrage? Why aren’t women demanding that if a man on Medicare wants a penile implant, he should have to pay for it himself? Why aren’t women demanding that Medicare cover breast implants? You know why? Because women aren’t waging a War On Men. We just want access to affordable healthcare and in this severely strained economy where many can’t afford insurance, we need clinics like Planned Parenthood so we can get mammograms and gynecological check-ups. And, yes, birth control.
IMAGINE how men would react if liberals decided to take away penile implants and Viagra?
The Koch Brothers, along with Karl Rove and others are spending a billion dollars to get Mitt Romney elected—you know, that guy who wants to overturn Roe v. Wade. Fun Fact: He also impersonated a police officer more than once and that is a felony. He just wasn’t caught.
Consider all of this when you vote. And DON’T FORGET TO VOTE!
