Obamacare: If Govt. Can’t Administer “Cash for Clunkers,” How Can It Manage Health Care?

The “cash for clunkers” program, which paid $4500 to consumers who traded in their old gas guzzlers for more fuel efficient vehicles, has crashed and burned in less than a week.  From the story:

Less than four days after launching a popular cash-for-clunkers program, the Obama administration warned Congress the plan already had burned through its $950-million budget, setting off a rush for more money while leaving thousands of dealers and consumers in the lurch.

Question: If the Congress and the Obama Administration can’t properly plan and execute a relatively small plan like cash for clunkers, why should we think the government can manage and properly budget for 1/6th of the entire economy?
