US Rep Thaddeus McCotter (R - Livonia MI) has introduced the HAPPY Act, to give a $3500 tax refund to pet owners to reimburse expenses. Now, Dr.Desert Flower and I have 2 felines who we serve, and I know many readers of this blog have dogs, cats, ferrets, birds, amphibians, reptiles, fish, and other pets as well... but $3.5K from the already nearly bankrupt US Treasury?
I am torn on this one. The selfish part of me, and the animal lover in me both like this concept very much, but the pragmatist in me, thinks it is ludicrous.
