OK I know what I am going to say isn't going to go over well and that I will probably be flamed by people but.. I just have to ask..Who is going to pay for this? Mid level and rich people can without an issue but what about the poor? The elderly who barely can afford food or medication but not both. Will we fine them for wanting a pet to love...and don't say they could get one from a shelter already fixed. There is a cost there as well as you know. No what this bill will do is force people who already suffering from financial stress to choose between survival and giving up a beloved pet. People say that there will be low cost clinic and in some areas, maybe but for the most part our culture doesn't want to help the poor and elderly. We BLAME them for being poor and enjoy penalizing them for it. People will happily tell you that they don't want 'their' tax money being spent on 'those lazy lowlifes who should get off their butts'. . No, there wont be any money to help the lower incomes (who far out number the others) there will only be penalties and punishment and more animals going to shelters just because their family cant afford any more financial burden. I'm tired of bills being put forward or ideas being foisted on the poor, by wealthy people who don't even consider if others can afford it.OK, I have my asbestos suit on, flame on.
