Limp Oklahomans

Umm..this wasn't what I was looking for.. but it looks interesting.

Democratic senators are questioning why insurance companies can cover the treatment of erectile dysfunction and not autism.
"We have been told by Republicans that it is not fair for those who do not have autism to have to pay for coverage for those who do," said Sen. Tom Adelson, D-Tulsa.
"Why is it fair for those who do not suffer from erectile dysfunction to pay for those who do in the form of higher premiums? I would think most Oklahomans would rather have their premiums cover children with autism, rather than people with erectile dysfunction."

Oh... here's what I was lookin for.. the Votes on HB1312.
10 Nay votes on HOUSE BILL1312 Nick's Law; requiring insurance coverage for autism DO PASS - FAILED
9 Yea votes on HOUSE BILL1312 Nick's Law; requiring insurance coverage for autism
DO NOT PASS - PASSED

Umm..You would think "most Oklahomans" would rather have their premiums cover children with autism, rather than people with erectile dysfunction. But I bet it all depends on how many Oklahomans have children with autism and how many Oklahomans have erectile dysfunction.

Maybe someone should ask "most Oklahomans"..Do you have a kid with autism?..

My mind goes limp sometimes. Does insurance cover that? Surely the House passed that bill.

You took the words right out of my mouth. This whole thing makes me mad and then it makes cry. I just can't believe they don't care about these precious children.

How many of them have kids with autism and how many have limp dicks? It's obvious who has which and who cares about which more.

I would gladly pay a bit higher premium if it means kids are getting the care they need.

Paying to fix some guys limp pecker so we can have MORE uninsured kids, well that's just stupid and our lawmakers are the kings and queens of stupid.

OMG that's one of those spit your coffee all over the keyboard post. It's sad our house cares more about limp dicks than our kids. But it's damn funny when you read it like that "Do oyu have a kid with autism" Nays 10" or do you have a limp dick?" Yeas 9.

And what happen with Key on that vote? He voted Yea on Not passing the bill. Did he just not vote at all on passing not to pass it?

there is no way insurance companies, congress or even aladdin and his magic lamp would cover e.d. for women.

Amazing, isn't it?
Sad thing is that there are so many kids not getting the help they need and we'll all be paying for it in a big way.
It's just too irritating.

I love the perspective you offer. :)
