Affordable Care Act? Affordable for Whom?
WOW, are the dog days ever upon us. It's hot, I'm furry, and I don't feel like doing any physical activity. So I've been spending the past couple of days inside, researching the human president's Affordable Care Act. It's long, no doubt (you can read the whole thing here:
Obama's Affordable Care Act) . . . and by all accounts contained far too much for all those congresspeople and senators to read before passing it. So it was with great anticipation that I sat down to read about all the benefits that will now accrue to the canine community.
So after reading the whole thing, I've transcribed here the passages that pertain to us dogs:

That's right, nothing, not a single word!
Mr. President, you'r a dog owner and by some accounts some of the members of you family even love Bo. But what if Bo becomes sick and needs vet care? Do you realize how much the vets charge? I know you're a successful, well-paid politician and can afford it, come what may. But what about the rest of us dogs out here, the 99% dogs? What's to become of us?
