I personally wanted to unleash one heck of a rant on this one but being a female and old school, I could not bring myself to discuss the apparatus referred to in this post.
Thus, you can (or maybe not) imagine my relief when patriot Moos, “in keeping with existing MoosRoom standards,” took on the matter of government spending “$175 million” for “vacuum erection systems” as referenced in the following article.
The Freebeacon.com‘s, January 13, 2014 Headline reads:
…From the article referenced above: Taxpayers paid nearly $175 million for vacuum erection systems (VES), commonly known as “penis pumps,” from 2006 to 2011, according to an inspector general report released on Monday.
. .The federal government paid more than double the retail price for VES, the Department of Health and Human Services IG found. Medicare prices for the systems, the report said, “remain grossly excessive compared with the amounts that non-Medicare payers pay.”
[Translation: If you purchased your own ‘Winky Pump’ it would have cost you approximately HALF of what Medicaid paid for it on your behalf. Keep reading, it’s coming… .
.“The fact that taxpayers have spent more than a quarter of a billion dollars over the past decade on penis pumps via Medicare is obscene and insulting…
Does it pump it up with air??? Or does it suck the blood to the end? Could it be made bigger so it will fit over our Presidents head to get more oxgen infused blood flowing there?
