Well anyways to be serious--being a man I was actually surprised to realize erectile dysfunction drugs are covered in the way they are. That being said, the difference between birth control and Viagra is birth control can solve many problems a woman has or help them, heavy bleeding, PCOS, ovarian cyst, serious hormone imbalances, etc. To my knowledge and I could be understanding this wrong, all these things are are boner pills. So, I don't think it should be a government requirement they be covered like birth control, but I would bet money with or without government intervention most insurers still cover stiffy supplements.
"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
Newsflash...where oral contraceptives are required for medical concerns they ARE covered by insurance companies...even the now famous 'Georgetown' insurance program...and always were. Watch the actual testimony and you will see her state as much.
HAHA! Fair is Fair! How does it feel men to have something like this on the table? I hope it makes some men change their minds in reguards to what has been happening as of late

I thought you were just considering the cost of having it run through the process in their legislature.
If one is consistent, you should vote for both or neither. This is obvious, right?
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
You are equating contraceptives used to NOT get pregnant and slaughtering an unborn child with a medical condition that causes some individuals to not be able to achieve an erection. Should your vagina ever give out and be nothing more than a 'hole' there might be a medical need to fix that and then you would have a valid comparison between THAT procedure and ED meds.
Me...I'm fine with them requiring a doctors prescription for such things...just as Im fine with ensuring insurance pays for required medical needs oral contraceptives for women where indicated (and in case you missed Flukes actually testimony she stated very clearly that Georgetowns insurance DOES cover medical needs oral contraceptives already and always did).
And they are used predominantly by the older men responsible for the latest rounds of anti abortion nonsense, so its kind of appropriate.
BOTH sides are playing games. BOTH sides think they are justified in doing so. ONE side started this nonsense.
