Reporting Myself

The Obama Administration is asking people to report on “fishy” conversations about health care they encounter:

Opponents of health insurance reform may find the truth a little inconvenient, but as our second president famously said, “facts are stubborn things.”

Scary chain emails and videos are starting to percolate on the internet, breathlessly claiming, for example, to “uncover” the truth about the President’s health insurance reform positions.

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.

I’m a patriotic American, so I decided to report myself this morning. Here’s what I sent, inspired by what some other OActivists did:

Dear Minister of Propaganda,

I’d like to report myself. I think that the Obama administration is attempting a government takeover of health care. Mandates are bad enough in themselves, and they’re just one step on the road to total government control of medicine. That’s appalling. I support individual rights and free markets in health care — not more government welfare and controls.

I’ve told that to tons of people. Please tell me when and where I should report to my re-education camp.

Please do send a protest e-mail to flag@whitehouse.gov. I’d love to see them flooded with useless-to-them e-mails.
