Sick Puppies

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) applauds the U.S. House of Representatives for passing the Veterinary Public Health Amendments Act (H.R. 525) on March 8.

H.R. 525 will help expand the veterinary public health workforce by offering veterinary school loan repayment for veterinarians who commit to serve in a federal, state, local, or tribal public health agency or who engage in a related training fellowship. The legislation also makes veterinary public health eligible for workforce grants. These grants are awarded to help increase the number of individuals in the public health workforce, to enhance the quality of such workforce and to enhance the ability of the workforce to meet national, state, and local health care needs.

This amendment was part of the original obamacare in 2009 that did not make it into the bill the House sent to the Senate. 279 votes were needed for passage, and there were 280 who voted Aye. The 280 who voted Aye include 95 Republicans. 32 of these 95 are House freshmen. There were no Democrats who voted Nay. Only 138 voted Nay, and this vote had 53 freshman. vote details

Now I realize that the very first bill that passed in the 111th House had to do with repealing obamacare. This vote that took place on March 8th makes me think a lot of people in the US House are not really serious about obamacare gettimg repealed. I have read a report that most Americans don’t have a clue and Congress needs to help Americans understand how big the problem is that faces us. This elitist attitude angers me. I am frustrated that of 87 new Republicans elected to the US House 32 have already adopted the elitist attitude of DC insiders. Now I also realize that veterinarians are good people who take care of sick puppies. There simply is no money available to offer veterinary school loan repayment. The sickest puppy of them all is the out of control spending by the US Congress. Below I have named names. They are the 32 who voted Aye. If you live in their state and you are a PC you just might want to discuss with like-minded PCs on your displeasure with this vote.

  1. Crap. That’s disappointing. I gave money to Vicky Hartzler in MO-04.

    I know it sounds nice to forgive people’s education debts when they go into a field that is popular and involves healing puppies. But I’m so sick and tired of these people spending my money on stuff that ‘sounds nice’ I’m ready to scream.

    I’ll be contacting Hartzler.

    • With tea partier Freshman converting to the establishment at the rate of over 35%, there are no number of election cycles within which we can ever achieve sufficient majorities to save America from ObamaCare, Medicare or any other care.

  2. This important post by pilgrim defines why I don’t think America can saved from a crisis of major proportions. Too many in our nation are too addicted to government, slouched towards Gomorrah too far.
