I've decided the President should not have a pet. No, I did not convert my heathen ways to become a PETA member. I just cannot bring myself to justify how this dog will most likely get health care, because it would take a real dick not to take care of it. Yes, our tax money cannot be spent on the 8.1 million uninsured children in our country, but the dog, yeah the fucking dog gets it.
Quick fact: Consumer spending on pets has more than doubled from $17 billion in 1994 to an estimated $38.4 billion in 2006, according to the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association (APPMA). It is also estimated that that universal health care would cost some where between 34 to 70 billion. Give up the pets and we've got a down payment!
