Well, that's certainly not true for Baxter Smith of Fort Collins, Colorado.
"Who's Baxter Smith," you ask?
No, really, go ahead and ask.
Well, now, since you asked, I'll tell you. He's a dog.
KDVR Fox 31 in Denver reports that Shane Smith tried to sign up, but they covered his dog Baxter instead.
“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.”I had heard that getting covered is a real son of a bitch. And, since Baxter is a male dog, he is exactly that: a son of a bitch.
Smith had called Connect for Health Colorado to sign himself up for insurance because his old plan was cancelled due to Obamacare.
That's good news for a lot of people. Including me, to hear an ex- talk.
