Viagra and other similar drugs are not widely covered by health insurance plans. That’s why the companies that make them air a billion ads a day to sell them, embarrassing everyone in the room when those ads show up while you’re trying to watch sports or River Monsters.

But that fact didn’t stop Barbara Boxer aka “Senator Ma’am” from going on MSNBC last week and accusing Hobby Lobby of having a double standard because its owners refuse to cover three out of about 16 contraceptive methods. Those specific methods end a life. Viagra — which most insurance policies don’t even cover — doesn’t end a life. That difference is so obvious that even MSNBC pointed it out to Boxer.

The Daily Surge sent its 60-year-old intern, Robb, into the halls of power to ask Senator Ma’am about all this. Apparently Boxer has been training for an Olympic sprinting berth. She’s got some wheels.

Exit question: When Boxer compared Viagra to abortifacient drugs, was she being ignorant, dishonest, or both?

Just to watch Leftys' heads explode, most prescription plans cover estrogen for Hormone Replacement Therapy for menopausal women as a health issue. Men's naturally declining testosterone count has health effects that go far beyond the libido; wasting muscle mass, cardiac problems, other hormonal problems, increased incidence of cancer. Yet, prescription plans don't cover testosterone replacement therapy, because yucky men parts. Ask her if testosterone replacement therapy should be covered, and see if she breaks the land speed record.

Actually, Sen Boxer was running away because she didn't want to disclose her own usage of Viagra. And no, you really don't want to know.
