the Pet Care Perk

Ruh-Roh
 Wait until Democrats from Manhattan to Marin hear about this "fairness" issue.

 I was looking for the recent post where I, not so tongue in cheek, suggested that we'll soon be getting free gummint pet care.  That camel's nose is sniffing under the tent.

Employers offer pet health care as perk

Even as the human health care debate rages in Congress, businesses are showing support for the animal kingdom by providing heath insurance for their employees' four-legged friends.

Hundreds of companies including Google Inc. and Blockbuster Inc. offer pet health insurance as a supplementary benefit to attract and retain employees, said David Lummis, a senior pet market analyst for Packaged Facts, a market research firm.


If memory serves, it was during a Dick Nixon anti-inflation wage freeze that employers began offering, on a wide scale, comprehensive medical insurance as a way around it.   I'm sure they never imagined that Democrats would turn that gambit into a mandated responsibility.   By the by, I never did find that quote, but I did find this, and it made me laugh.
