The White House is asking for people to turn in their neighbors:
“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 email@example.com.”
I wonder if White House director of new media Macon Phillips could have chosen a better e-mail prefix than "flag."
Sen. Cornyn covers the obvious with Obama:
“I can only imagine the level of justifiable outrage had your predecessor asked Americans to forward emails critical of his policies to the White House. I suspect that you would have been leading the charge in condemning such a program -- and I would have been at your side denouncing such heavy-handed government action.”
Now that would have been a big story; an outrage, really.
UPDATE: Iowahawk has more from the White House:
...beware: though small in number the state health reform enemy is clever, and well trained in subterfuge and disguise by his monopolist paymasters.
