So the White House wants to know if any of your friends or neighbors are resisting the party line on Obama Care:
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 canâ€™t keep track of all of them here at the White House, weâ€™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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jon Henke follows up with the logical question: “What, exactly, does the White House plan to do with this information?” An excellent question that hopefully gets answered by supposedly the most transparent presidential administration ever.
A variety of other takes and responses are posted at Michelle Malkin, Right Wing News, Ace of Spades, Blue Collar Muse, Net Right Nation, Q and O, Publius Forum, Granite Grok, Stix Blog, Thurber’s Thoughts, and Living the Grand Life.
Personally, I like the idea one Next Right commenter had … fight silliness with silliness. So I just dashed off a similar email of my own to the address above:
FYI — The other day I was surfing around the Internet doing research on health care reform. When I clicked on one site and began reading, the room suddenly began to reek of dead sardines. I could barely stand it. I decided to persevere, but finally was overcome by the nauseating stench. The moment I left the site it was as if someone had released a healthy dose of air freshener into the room, and my olfactory cells could breathe clearly and pleasantly again. Since you’re looking for anything “out there…on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy,” I thought you’d like to know.
Oh, yeah. The website was http://whitehouse.gov …
If you have a brief moment to spare, might I humbly suggest you also take a moment to share your informed thoughts with the White House?
Then again, maybe you fear having something to lose. With recent posts like this one exposing the Obama Care agenda, I can only hope I’ve already made the “fishy” list.
