Governments tend not to solve problems, only to rearrange them…Ronald REAGAN

One of the yet to be answered questions is just how an administration that is lead by a president who never ran a business, much less a candy store, can run USA’s Health Care. Our nations health care industry comprises 16% of the USA total economy, and involves thousands of hospitals, hundreds of thousands of doctors and nurses and many billions of contacts with the system by patients.

If the Cash for Clunkers is an example that the government can run a large program well. It is proving to be a disaster and an example of exacerbation of a problem that plagues providers of health care services today. Late payment for services rendered!

I know as I was a provider or over thirty years, and many of those involved payments for my services by medicaid, medicare and private insurance. All were guilty of delayed payment, but medicaid was the worst!

Now we have learned that many car dealers are refusing to participate in the CFC program because the government has not paid the $4500 dollars it promised for clunkers, and the customer has his new car in his garage!

Despite this display of federal government inept administration of a plan that involves just 3 billion dollars, Obama wants to get the lawful authority to control 1/6th of our GDP! He even has the perverse guts to quote the Jewish prayer to show he is in unison with religious beliefs in his quest for socialised medicine. This despite the fact that he has consistentantly violated the Fifth Commandment of Gods Ten Commandments by being a vocal advocate of taking the innocent life of the unborn, abortion and partial birth abortion!

He said this after meeting with a group of Liberal Church leaders on Thursday.
“We are God’s partners in matters of life and death,” Obama said, quoting from the Rosh Hashanah prayer that says that in the holiday period, it is GOD who decides “who shall live and who shall die.”

The president ended the call by wishing the rabbis “shanah tovah,” or happy new year — in reference to the High Holidays a month from now. This from a man who has not chosen a church to attend on Sundays as yet! That is chutzpah!

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Some New Mexico auto dealers have backed out of the cash-for-clunkers program and more may do so as the federal government takes its time providing cash reimbursements.

Dealers across the state are owed more than $3.6 million, according to a dealers’ group which says that so far Uncle Sam has only written three checks totaling about $14,000.

Cash for clunkers–officially its the Car Allowance Rebate System–allows consumers to trade their gas guzzlers for a more fuel-efficient rides while earning up to $4,500 toward the purchase price.

Dealerships put up the cash for the rebates after being told by the Obama administration they would be paid back within 10 days of the sale.

With that much cash in limbo they’ve called in reinforcements.

“You simply can’t ask businesses to front $200,000, $300,000 for any period of time,” Rep. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., told KRQE News 13. “These applications are simply not being processed fast enough”.

I can only imagine how long it will take to distribute payments for services rendered under a government option plan! And do not delude yourself. As I have said before, if we get a government option it will eventually price out of existence the private health insurance industry. They have to make a profit, but the government has the tax payer well to return to time and time again if they run low on money. Or they can just print it as they are doing now, and run the national debt up even further!
