The hubris of the government planners varies between scary and laughable. Social engineers are whining in the press that thousands of â€œeligibleâ€ children are not enrolled in the government health â€œinsuranceâ€ plan. Their solution, of course, is to spend a lot of your money to â€œeducateâ€ wayward parents into placing kids in the care of government bureaucracy. It never occurs to these folks that maybe moms and dads arenâ€™t excited about letting whining bureaucrats take care of junior.
Their solution, of course, is found in multi-million-dollar advertising campaigns that â€œreach outâ€ to parents and encourage them to get the kids hooked on the government teat.
“Texas is a very large state, and it’s very difficult to get that information out,” said the CHIP/Children’s Medicaid outreach campaign manager Geoff Wool, according to the Austin American Statesman.
