Hawaii to Drop Universal Child Health Care

Hawaii is dropping the only state universal child health care program in the United States just seven months after it launched.

Gov. Linda Lingle's administration cited budget shortfalls and other available health care options for eliminating funding for the program. 

A state official said families were dropping private coverage so their children would be eligible for the subsidized plan.

"People who were already able to afford health care began to stop paying for it so they could get it for free," said Dr. Kenny Fink, the administrator for Med-QUEST at the Department of Human Services.  "I don't believe that was the intent of the program."

So then ... you're saying that people would opt for a FREE program vs. one they had to PAY for???


.... uhm .... DUH!

If Obama's plan goes through, expect to see this...minus the ending of the program.
