    Sex offenders getting taxpayer funded Viagra

    ALBANY, N.Y. May 23, 2005 — The Bush administration is scrambling to find a way to close a loophole that allows convicted rapists and other high-risk sex offenders to receive Viagra at taxpayer expense.

    The state comptroller's office called attention to the situation on Sunday, saying audits from 2000 through March found that 198 sex offenders in New York received Medicaid-reimbursed Viagra after their convictions. Their crimes included offenses against children as young as 2, Comptroller Alan Hevesi said.

    The auditors did not review the situation in other states, but Hevesi spokesman David Neustadt said Medicaid policies on Viagra are the same across the country....

    I heard that on the news this evening while coming home from work. Giving a sex offender Viagra is like giving a convicted murderer a weapon. Maybe they will use it on themselves....

    Perhaps we're not being creative enough to 'work' the system. We're thinking like honest men. We keep fooling ourselves that if we want something, we should just work for a living, save up and then buy it after other more important bills and responsibilities are secured. Man, did they see us coming!

    Now, I make no secret that I am bi-polar and under the care of qualified medical professionals who have diagnosed my disability. Some antidepressants have 'sexual side effects,' and Viagra tablets can cost about 5 to 10 dollars a piece.

    Well, since I'm bi-polar, a condition covered by The Americans with Disabilities Act, I see no reason why the government shouldn't build a handicapped ramp up to my front door to deliver Viagra by the wheelbarrow.

    After all, this is just creative thinking and using the system. I should have a case worker check into this.

    If a case worker is assigned, could you have her stop at 'Taco Bell' when she's on her way over to my place?

    I propose we take care of the problem of erectile dysfunction once and for all.....total penectomies for all sex offenders save consensual stat. rape offenders within 2-3 years of the victims age for NON child sex predators and life in prison.

    Death for child sex predators.

    Castration and other physical and/or chemical alteration of sexual predators does not remove the mentally hard wired "need" to abuse the innocent. The only sure cure is high speed leadectomy. I know this because I work on a sex offender yard...and yes, there IS a differance between a sex offender, and a sexual predator.
    If total government control equals safety, why are prisons so dangerous?
