So let me get this straight. The US government gives billions to banks and investment firms to recover the economy. They find out the companies are not putting the money back into the economy and using it for themselves with little to no effect on the economy so far. Then they come up with a plan that is a great success to stimulate sales with the great idea of a program (cash for clunkers) that could have a great impact on the economy and they totally blunder the program so far.
Now they want to run the health care system... priceless.
