Introducing: BoCare©

About two years ago, Bob (presciently) posted about a New Jersey initiative to push pet insurance. Seems like little Fido's owners weren't being made aware of various insurance alternatives available to them (and hence, money available to Fido's vet).

And I bet you thought that ObamaCrap was just for us silly humans.

Well, guess again. Behold, H R 525:

"To amend the Public Health Service Act to enhance and increase the number of veterinarians trained in veterinary public health."

Briefly, the bill's purpose is to extend federal funding for vet's (as in veterinarians) in order to spend even more money (that we don't have) so that Fido can enjoy the same kind of health care that we enjoy.

Oh, wait:

Did I say "Fido can enjoy?"

I meant: "So that you and I can dig deeper in our pocket to subsidize another sub-group of professionals."

And what, you may ask, does this have to do with ObamaCare©?

Glad you asked.

It seems that, when they were "passing the bill so that they (and we) could see what's in it," they inadvertently forgot to include funding to increase the "Public Health Workforce Loan Repayment Program" (aka Title V of Section 5204) of ObamaCare©.

Do we all get a treat now?
