HHS Touts PCIP Success

Kaiser Health News reports that 20,000 have enrolled in the government PCIP (Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plan) for high risk individuals.

PCIP has been around almost a year.

HHS estimated 4,000,000 were eligible for PCIP and 200,000 would enroll.

In 10 months they "sold" 20,000 policies to 4,000,000 needy individuals.

Back in 2009 the government sold 700,000 cars in 6 weeks to needy individuals as part of Cash for Clunkers.

Why don't they get out of the health insurance business and in to the car business?
