9,200,000 Peso Viagra Handout… In Chile!

Here’s something that would give any red blooded republican a heart attack.  According to the BBC:

Mayor Gonzalo Navarette Munoz says he wants to improve their quality of life by giving them free access to Viagra.

He will give men aged 60 or over in the working-class suburb of Lo Prado the chance to get their potency pills courtesy of the taxpayer.

He says he was inspired by complaints from older patients about their poor sex lives while working as a doctor.

Politics at its finest, and most primitive level.  Give people what they want, and they will vote for you.

How much will this cost? Well, 9,200,000 Chilean Pesos of course!  Can they afford to do this?  Meh, probably not.  If the tax base can give them that much money I’m guessing they could afford their own viagra.

But the best part of the article?

Critics have suggested this is just a ploy to get the local politician re-elected.

But Mayor Navarette insists he is performing a valuable social service which, if successful, could be rolled out across Chile. 

Please, Viagra is the Chilean Soma.

    THAT’S RIGHT! We rule! 😛 We don’t have enough with teen sex… we want MORE! (j/p)
    Two things to complain!

    1.) 9,200,000 Chilean Pesos is actually not a lot of money. I’d say nearly 5,000 U.S. Dollars. And obviously by this you can see that our government uses our money on corruption and other needless shit.

    2.) If you want to get re-elected, the young crowd is the key. Old people are a small minority, in fact if you seperate adults, young-adults and seniors, young adults out number both of the other two, so I doubt it’s actually a political ploy. But it if is, it just goes to show you how sucky our politicians are.

    As for my actual comment: Old people are people too, they have needs. It’s a great that it could be done, even if it doesn’t give you an appealing image :P.

    I doubt they’re balancing their budget by spending 9,200,000 of it on viagra. Take a look at their priorities!
