Glenn Beck claims health care bill includes insurance for dogs
“Do you know in the health care bill, we’re now offering insurance for dogs,” Beck said. “Do I need to say any more? If you are somebody who is like, ‘Well, I just, I’m struggling and we’re barely making ends meet,’ I’m not paying for your dog cardiologist!” Beck said. “Not gonna do it. I’m sorry, the dog goes nighty night.”
Included in the House bill is the creation of a Public Health Workforce Corps to address shortages in the public health workforce. The program would provide scholarships and education loan repayment assistance for public health professionals serving in areas of need. Veterinarians are included among those public health professionals.
“The rationale is that with mad cow disease, swine flu and other animal-borne diseases and issues, there is logic in helping to create more and better trained individuals to treat animal health,” said Vincent Morris, spokesman for the House Rules Committee
I guess Glenn Beck likes swine flu, mad cow, Avian Flu etc.
The thing is, while it is a masterful spin for such a slow adult, does it work? People love their dogs, sometimes more then their family members. Vet bills aren’t exactly cheap either. I asked my dog, Foxy, if she felt she deserved this “socialized medicine.” She simply stated “Single Payer or Bust!” and took a little poop on my nicest rug. She really hates Glenn Beck.
