I should have corrected this earlier and apologize for not doing so but I am prodded to do so by a commenter.
I was perusing the news on the web last night and found a story regarding the suspension of the cash for clunker program. The source I used suggested that the suspension was the result of a bureaucratic snafu and I decided to run with that and hammer the health care proposal with the as evidence of government incompetence.
Subsequent news stories reveal that the program is suspended because they have exhausted or will very shortly exhaust the $ 1billion designated for this program.
So it was not government incompetence but an enthusiastic public grabbing for the dollars.
I should have waited for a better source and i should not have been as quick to make my ideological point.
