The allegedly proto-libertarian Rep. Thaddeus McCotter is sponsoring legislation to give up to a 3.5 kilobuck annual tax break for owning pets. That’s as much as a child is worth! Nice subtle way to equate critters and humans there. One could justify the child credit on the grounds that the state needs future cannon fodder and taxpayers. Does the state need more pet owners? Especially ones that don’t eat their pets?
