Which bill is that from? There are 10 floating around now.
There, was that fishy enough? No?
How can Obama tell us exactly what this reform will do if he doesn't have a clue which bill makes it through? In reality, since the Senate wrote their own version(s), the answer is none of the above. So, for Obama to say exactly what this reform will do is completely dishonest. As an experienced lawmaker, he knows that too. How can we know what to protest or not if no one knows exactly what is going to be in this thing? And, the tradeoff of course is that since there is no consensus reform at this time, how can anyone protest it and not be spreading disinformation. Bottom line, anyone who discusses what this bill will or will not do is fishy and should be reported to The White House immediately.
Is that fishy enough?

Remember that. It's your new ministry of truth.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
So, is this the precedent for the ministry of truth? What do you all think?

With all the special interests fighting healthcare reform, reporting on clearly false information is important. Some of the rumors are pretty outlandish like how healthcare reform is a conspiracy to kill old people. People actually believe some of that crazy stuff, healthcare reform is already tough enough to get through without people being tricked to be against reform.
