The effects of the poor economy doesn’t really hit home until it affects someone we know and that may just as well be a porn star in need. The New York Times reported last week of the government reductions in drug spending including medications for H.I.V. patients and one such patient is muscle daddy porn star Tim Kelly, a regular at Hot Older Male.
Under its massive cost-cutting mode in the face of huge deficits, Florida has placed 49 year old Tim Kelly (real name Tim Sweeney) on it’s waitlist for H.I.V. medications because he was four days late in filing out his re-enrollment papers. It continues “Mr. Sweeney, who has AIDS, takes six H.I.V. pills twice a day, as well as three other medications. Their total retail cost: $4,500 a month.” Tim Kelly is getting by with the help of social agencies where he frequents weekly for medication and awaiting responses from pharmaceutical companies.
Read New York Times – Economy Hurts Government Aid for H.I.V. Drugs for the story about Tim Sweeney’s plight. I wish him luck and hope that he gets the resources he needs for his situation.
