Flagging the Fish
Apparently, the White House has set up an email account to gather inconvenient rhetoric about healthcare reform:
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 agree with Tevi Troy that the “flag” idea is inspired and have forwarded Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse’s recent op-ed to the email address. I just know that he hasn’t read the bill with sufficient attention to justify his professed “confidence” about its effects and his entire op-ed is consequently “fishy.”
