White House Blog Asks Supporters To Turn In The Opposition

A White House blog post is asking supporters to forward along any emails or something they “see” on the web that is viewed as “disinformation” on health care reform.  The blog doesn’t say what they plan to do with the information.  I’ll take a stab.  Does the name Joe The Plumber ring a bell?

There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care.  These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation.  Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

Ironically, the title of the post is “Facts Are Stubborn Things” in which Linda Douglass, the communications director for the White House’s Health Reform Office repeats the meme that you can keep your insurance plan and doctor if you like them.  She fails to mention this is only true so long as your employer doesn’t dump private coverage and opt for the cheaper government plan.  Facts are stubborn things, Miz. Douglass.
