The Truth:  
According to a White House Blog entry by
communications director for the White House’s Health Reform Office Linda Douglass, the White House is monitoring the Internet and said, “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.”  Click for White House Blog.

The blog includes a video of Douglass singling out and discussing a video sample of President Obama discussing Health Reform that was posted on the Drudge Report on Monday August 3, 2009.

In her White House blog, Linda Douglass said, “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.”

They’re not know to suffer fools gladly.  They offend anyone but stick to those stubborn facts.
