sticker shock

For reasons unknown, this video has become an internet sensation; a squirrel, dubbed “Tippy” because of his tendency to repeatedly tip over and faint.

Everyone is chiming in with possible diagnoses for Tippy’s condition, ranging from “Brain… this is your brain on Liberalism” to “intoxication from fermented acorns.”

Well, I am not a veterinarian (although I did stay at a Holiday Inn once) but here is my diagnosis: Tippy is suffering from Obamacare Sticker Shock.

Tippy has just learned that his new Obamacare insurance policy has a $13,000 deductible.

He faints, gets up, remembers the $13K deductible, and faints again.

No one is safe from this disaster.

Not even poor Tippy.

    Looks a little like something called cerebellar hypoplasia. Under ocare that would be “2 aspirin, next”

    Jason V. Squirrel (V. for Vorhees) Is it really coincidence that next Friday is Friday the 13th ?

    I believe that Democrats thought that ObamaCare would be Jason. Surprise! It’s we who are Jason. Yes Democrats, you can’t kill us with ObamaCare. Regardless of sticker shock, we’re going to keep getting up and going after it. And you.
