Subj: No wonder the Obango Admin Hates Fox News ....."PENIS PUMPS FOR ILLEGALS?"
Now that's what I call "Stimulus Spending"......!!!     R/   T. 
by Todd Starnes A Minnesota town is outraged over reports that an illegal immigrant was implanted with a penis pump – paid for by taxpayers.
Shakopee Police Chief Jeff Tate said the expense to taxpayers was more than $50,000.
“It’s shocking,” he told FOX News Radio. “It’s certainly disturbing as well. You know it’s not going to set well with the public at large.”
Scott County Attorney Pat Ciliberto wants to know how an illegal immigrant was able to obtain tens of thousands of dollars in medical assistance.
“There’s no logical argument for why that should have been approved,” Ciliberto told the Shakopee News. “I don’t know how many illegal aliens are getting emergency medical assistance for such a procedure.”
Ciliberto told county commissioners the cost of taking care of illegal immigrants in their community is skyrocketing.
“It should be obvious when Scott County goes from seven bookings in 2006 to 90 bookings in 2009 – that Arizona’s problem is Minnesota’s problem, too,” he told the newspaper.
According to published numbers, the county spent more than $800,000 housing inmates with immigration holds – and that doesn’t include medical coverage.
“We have no control over the southern border,” he said. “We don’t know who is coming in and what country they’re coming from.”
Regardless, local officials said they are required by federal and state laws to provide welfare to illegals – from court costs to health care – including a penis pump.
At least one local said they sympathize with the plight of Arizonans.
“My hats off to Arizona, to people who’ve said, ‘We’ve had enough,’” Commissioner Barbara Marschall told the newspaper. “We’re thousands (of) miles away from the southern border. It’s here and it’s going to get worse.”

Gosh, why would anyone approve something like that for an illegal immigrant?

Oh, right, identity theft.

Clearly the penis pump is at fault here.

This appears to be the full article. Unlike Fox's headlines, it's mainly focused on the cost of imprisoning illegal immigrants and allegations from county commissioners that they see lots of cases of illegals abusing welfare and the legal system.

But the strangest quote is the last paragraph: "And what happened to the convicted felon who got a penis pump at taxpayer expense? After serving 98 days for a felony in the Scott County Jail – at a $12,000 cost to local taxpayers – the man was supposed to be held for deportation. Instead, he was released with only a deportation court date because ICE didn’t want to be responsible for medical costs he might incur while in federal custody."

$122 a day to hold someone in prison? That's... surprising.

Shouldn't be. One of the biggest growth industries over the last 30 years has been the prison industry. Its now a huge, for profit machine. They have been the biggest beneficiaries (and some would argue the biggest causes of) the "War on Drugs", which has resulted in an explosion in the prison population. There are many towns in this nation whose only economic stimulus is building or being located near a prison.

Costs have been skyrocketing for decades, with the rise of things like the Supermax prison, where every inmate is placed in isolation 23 hours a day. Prison guards also cost money, as its a dangerous job requiring advanced training and benefits. Many companies exists solely on being vendors to the prison systems, and they lobby hard for states to build more prisons and lengthen criminal sentences in order to boost their own business.

Heh - prison guards unions are some of the biggest contributers to Republican campaigns. Repubs loves 'em some punishment of the poor and minorities, but as we see here, find it "surprising" to learn how much it costs.

CA Repubs were very keen & eager to pass 3 Strikes criminal sentencing laws some years ago, which basically ended up being an unfunded mandated to dramatically increase prison populations. Repubs seldom "get" how expensive it is to incarcerate prisoners (and how incredibly expensive it is to have the death penalty, but that's another story).

So: surprise, surprise, Repubs! It costs a LOT of $$$$ to keep the duskies ones in jail. Your choice, though: spend your hard earned bucks on that, rather than, oh I dunno, education, libraries, infrastructure improvements, etc. BC that's what happens: the prisons tend to take priority over everything else. Way to go.

I'm guessing the guy used medicare or medicaid to obtain his fraudulent penis pump. Interesting that something like that would be a covered healthcare expense, while a woman on medicaid can't get an IUD.
