Want a Tax Break for Owning a Pet?

U.S. Rep. Thaddeus McCotter of Michigan has introduced a bill that will allow a tax deduction up to $3,500 for qualified pet care expenses. It’s called the Humanity and Pets Partnered Through the Years (HAPPY) Act

“Considering that most responsible pet owners stand to spend about $1,700 on each pet per year, such a proposal would help each individual or family support a couple of pets a year in the manner to which they’ve become accustomed.”

Do you support this bill?  Why or why not?
