First Confederate History Month, now Viagra?
Gov. Bob McDonnell has pulled erectile dyfunction drug funding for state employees from the state budget.
In fairness to McDonnell, The Washington Examiner reports:
"Former Gov. Tim Kaine proposed in December to remove coverage for all erectile dysfunction medication. The General Assembly, as it retooled Kaine's budget, quietly reinstated the drugs with no explanation. The state expects to save $7 million a year by cutting out coverage for erectile dysfunction drugs and nonsedating antihistamines, as well as creating a new 90-day maintenance drug network. The legislature will reconvene for a single-day session on Wednesday to consider McDonnell's proposed amendments and give final approval to the budget plan, which covers state spending for the coming two fiscal years."
