Considering everything else going on in the world, whether the government should or shouldn't pay for these drugs is not a top priority for me. On the other hand, the idea of federal programs paying for these prescriptions doesn't bother me, especially when I think about all the ridiculous things that we taxpayers pay for. Billions of dollars are spent on wasteful "pork" projects every year. Some examples over the recent past include authorizing $102 million to study screwworms and a mere $50 million for an indoor rainforest in Iowa. NASCAR gets $92 million in federal economic incentives, while poor Tiger Woods only gets $100,000 in federal grant money for his foundation. In this context, paying for these drugs doesn't seem all that frivolous to me.
