Running at high speed

Every blogger and other political commentators looking for something fun to write latched on to this one. 

Last month the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued a report finding that Medicare payments for male vacuum erection systems were more than twice as much as the amounts paid for the same or similar devices by non-Medicare payers.

This report concluded if Medicare reduced payments to the level of non-Medicare payers, the federal government could save about $18 million with Medicare beneficiaries saving about $4.5 million each year.

Apparently, this overcharging is nothing new because a similar finding was reported in August 1999.

Investigative reporters from Pierini Fitness have uncovered two other findings not included in this recent government report.

The first finding is that 100 percent of the male vacuum erection systems retailers laugh all the way to their banks.

The second finding is even though older men Medicare beneficiaries paid more for their male vacuum erection systems than other older men, they were not the least bit upset with their being overcharged. 

In fact, they reported being just as happy as others, who paid less, when using their vacuums running at high speed.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
