    White House Launches Web Site to Battle Health Care 'Rumors'

    The Obama administration has launched a new Web site to battle what it calls "wild rumors" about the health care reform plans being pushed through Congress -- including an invitation for the public to tattle on any other "myths" they come across.

    It comes a week after the White House asked the public to send in "fishy" information about health care reform.

    The Web site, activated Monday, uses the same set-up as the "Fight the Smears" page the Obama campaign maintained last year to battle rumors seen as potentially damaging to his candidacy.
    And oh, yeah, snitch on your fellow man section is included.

    But the new site continues the effort to solicit information, featuring a "We Want to Hear From You" section which encourages readers to submit their "myths" for the White House team to address.

    Two things I want an answer for:

    1. If this plan is so gloriously great, why haven't...
    2. The Dem House and Senate Majorities been able to make it happen?


    We all know the answer, but are the Dem's honest enough to answer it?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Considering at least some republicans have made it clear they are opposing it to play politics with President Obama("Obama's Waterloo"), that would explain at least part of it. The other part is that congress is doing the right thing and taking it's time with a very complicated piece of legislation.

    You make it sound like this period of "deliberation" was intended.

    It was not intended by Obama, but too bad for him.

    Why does the "Obama's waterloo" mean that they're doing it specifically to play politics with Preisdent Obama and not that they oppose the bill in principle and think that many people do and thus it will be damaging to Obama, thus his "waterloo"?

    You should really try to come up with your own talking points. And not keep following the Obama line by Aping what he comes out with.

    The opposition to the "Obama's I Don't Care About Your Health Care Kill Granny Plan" is now coming from both Republicans and Democrats all of whom have managed to read enough of this Socialist grabage to see that hey have been lied to by the Liberals in control of the house and Obama.
    New polls say 32% Favor Single-Payer Health Care, 57% Oppose
    54% Favor Middle Class Tax Cuts Over New Health Care
    71% Say Obama’s Policies Have Driven Up Deficit
    54% Oppose More Money for ‘Cash for Clunkers’ Program

    This tells us Obama's lies are begining to fall on deaf ears.
    Couple those numbers with the attacks carried out By DNC hired Union thugs and Obama's attempt to frighten people into silence by his turn in your friends ans neighbor policy and the wicked witch of the west calling honest citizens un-American and the desperation sort of leaps out you.
    The white isn't out to battle lies or they'd shut the hell up. Their out to battle the truth with more lies like those they've been caught it that are causing them to to panic, with more National Socialist programs that were defeated in the past.

    If they opposed the bill in principle they would not need to make up lies about it, the truth would be sufficient to scare people off.

    Which is probably why you call any criticism of it at all a "lie."

    Right. The Messiah and his cronies in the House wanted this bill crammed through before summer recess. Now his mindless flunkies out here in the sticks are pretending the delay is intentional. Too funny.

    No, I call THESE lies, all addressed by the White House site and all promoted by the people you so vigorously defend.

    reform will mean a "government takeover" of health care or lead to "rationing."

    reform would encourage or even require euthanasia for seniors

    reform will affect veterans' access to the care they get now

    health insurance reform will hurt small businesses.

    Health Insurance Reform would be financed by cutting Medicare benefits.

    reform will force you out of your current insurance plan or force you to change doctors


    If you object to health care reform on "principle", why do you spread lies like these?
