A Chicken In Every Pot...

...and health insurance for your dog, too!

A Fort Collins, Colo. man signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act and learned that his dog got covered instead.

Baxter received a letter from the Colorado insurance exchange informing him he was covered. Baxter is a dog owned by Shane Smith, according to Fox 31 Denver.

“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.”

When Obamacare rolled out, Smith’s individual health insurance policy was cancelled, so he had to sign up for a new plan under the exchange.

He said the foul-up probably occurred when the representative asked him a series of security questions

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

Be nice, people. Baxter could totally be a human name. That said, we can't wait to add "Oops! Must have put it in the wrong slot or something" to our ObamaCare phrasebook.

"Oops! Must have put it in the wrong slot or something"

RACIST!!!

I am SO tired of you tired old bigots - you only oppose Bill Clinton because you can't stand the fact that a WHITE man is finally occupying the WHITE House! It's all about skin color with your people, isn't it?

"You people" would never be dissin' a WHITE President that wa...

Bill Clinton back in the Whitehouse with lots of free time on his hands. Now that would make for one heck of a Reality TV show.

He could have Chris Dodd as his sidekick. "Bill and Chris' most Excellent Adventures."

Stop touching me! :)

Good grief, I just realized that straightening the kids' nonsense out was easier then understanding politicians these days.
