We live in an age where pet insurance is a big busi­ness. Then there’s this Oba­macare vi­gnette from one Shane Smith of Fort Collins, Colo., who at­tempted to sign up for re­place­ment insurance af­ter his own pol­icy was can­celed in the wake of the new health care law. Mr. Smith du­ti­fully called Con­nect for Health Colorado to ap­ply, and in the course of the con­ver­sa­tion, the nav­i­ga­tor asked him a per­sonal se­cu­rity ques­tion to pro­tect the ap­pli­ca­tion. Mr. Smith vol­un­teered “Bax­ter,” the name of his ven­er­a­ble old York­shire ter­rier, as a code an­swer. Then, voila. It was the magic of Oba­macare. “Wow. This is so awe­some, I thought. They went out of their way to in­sure my 14-year-old Yorkie,” Mr. Smith told KDVR-TV, a Fox News af­fil­i­ate in Den­ver.
