Now that Americans have a new health care law in place, details are emerging that will require more fixes.
According to the non-partisan Congressional Research Service (CRS) provisions in California Senator Barbara Boxer’s (D-CA) unpopular health care reform bill will provide rapists and sex offenders with taxpayer-funded erectile dysfunction drugs.
“The Congressional Research Service confirmed in a memo that rapists and sex offenders may get federally subsidized Viagra and other sexual-performance enhancing drugs under the recently passed health care reform law — information that Republicans charge will haunt Democrats in upcoming elections… According to the CRS, under existing rules there are no prohibitions against providing erectile dysfunction drugs to rapists, pedophiles or other types of sex offenders,” as reported by John Stanton of Roll Call.
The National Republican Committee exposed Boxer’s vote to provide convicted sex offenders with taxpayer-funded erectile dysfunction drugs, calling her vote “disgusting, disturbing and revolting.”
“Barbara Boxer had every chance to stop this disgusting and disturbing provision, but she opted instead to make Californians foot the bill for this repulsive part of the Democrats’ far-left agenda,” said NRSC spokeswoman Amber Marchand.
“During a time when unemployment in California is at 12.5 percent, there’s no doubt that Senator Boxer will be forced to explain why she voted to provide convicted child molesters and rapists with taxpayer-subsidized sex drugs,” she said.
Apparently, Senator Boxer decided not to convey this part of the health care bill when she appeared on CNN’s Larry King show with Chelsea King’s parents promising to enact tougher sexual predator laws.
Chelsea King was abducted, raped and murdered by a 30-year old repeat sexual predator in San Diego. Once the truth was uncovered Chelsea’s parents discovered there were several missed opportunities to put the rapist/murderer who allegedly killed their daughter back in prison.
Senator Boxer’s office failed to return phone calls regarding this important public safety matter.
