  • Today's apparently NOT satire




    FORT COLLINS, Colo. — The Colorado healthcare exchange has processed applications for thousands of people … and one dog.

    Shane Smith, of Fort Collins, says his dog Baxter received a letter informing him that a health insurance account had been opened in his name through Connect for Health Colorado.

    “I thought, ‘Wow, this is so awesome,’” Smith said with a laugh. “They have gone out of their way to insure my 14-year-old Yorkie.”

    Smith had called Connect for Health Colorado to sign himself up for insurance because his old plan was cancelled due to Obamacare.

    He’s not sure exactly how the confirmation letter went to his dog, but he says he thinks it’s because of a series of security questions a representative asked him over the phone.

    “There was some kind of code or something, so I gave them my dog’s name,” Smith said. “They must have just put it in the wrong slot or something.”

    After hearing about all the headaches with Obamacare nationally, Shane says this mistake doesn’t seem so bad.

    “It was pretty funny. Typical Obamacare, that they would insure your dog by mistake,” Smith said.

    don't let carrot top know that she can sign up her pets in Colorado
    Robert Francis O'Rourke, Democrat, White guy, spent ~78 million to defeat, Ted Cruz, Republican immigrant Dark guy …
    and lost …
    But the Republicans are racist.

      Doc is hot for this but Scout and Daisy think it's a scam. The Border Collie who does our taxes has tried to explain that that Doc already has a fully funded Cadillac health insurance plan but you know how Collies are - always early adopters. This is why we took his investment account away.

      Actually, we've been laughing over this story for a couple of days now. I wonder if the IRS knows just how little income dogs declare. Mine work under the table all the time!

        I hear that phrase a lot. Is that the plan you get when you declare bankruptcy. Rather, should declare.
        Science that cannot be questioned is propaganda.

        Cameras in classrooms now.

          No, it's the one where somebody else totally pays for a full-ride, regardless of cost: you pay nothing, you contribute nothing to your own health care expenses, there's no deductible, no copay, and no prescription cost to you.

          The difference with Doc is that at any point in time I can boot him off the plan by giving him the needle.

          Of course, Doc isn't Union.

            May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
            Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
            And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
            may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.
