I got a letter today from the WhiteHouse:
The White House, Washington
Anyone that’s watched the news in the past few days knows that health insurance reform is a hot topic — and that rumors and scare tactics have only increased as more people engage with the issue. Given a lot of the outrageous claims floating around, it’s time to make sure everyone knows the facts about the security and stability you get with health insurance reform.
That’s why we’ve launched a new online resource — WhiteHouse.gov/RealityCheck — to help you separate fact from fiction and share the truth about health insurance reform. Here’s a few of the reality check videos you can find on the site:
* CEA Chair Christina Romer details how health insurance reform will impact small businesses.
* Domestic Policy Council Director Melody Barnes tackles a nasty rumor about euthanasia and clearly describes how reform helps families.
* Matt Flavin, the White House’s Director of Veterans and Wounded Warrior Policy, clears the air about Veteran’s benefits.
* Kavita Patel, M.D., a doctor serving in the White House’s Office of Public Engagement, explains that health care rationing is happening right now and how reform gives control back to patients and doctors.
* Bob Kocher, M.D., a doctor serving on the National Economic Council, debunks the myth that health insurance reform will be financed by cutting Medicare benefits.
There’s more information and a number of online tools you can use to spread the truth among your family, friends and other social networks. Take a look:
We knew going into this effort that accomplishing comprehensive health insurance reform wasn’t going to be easy. Achieving real change never is. The entrenched interests that benefit from the status quo always use their influence in Washington to try and keep things just as they are.
But don’t be misled. We know the status quo is unsustainable. If we do nothing, millions more Americans will be denied insurance because of pre-existing conditions, or see their coverage suddenly dropped if they become seriously ill. Out-of-pocket expenses will continue to soar, and more and more families and businesses will be forced to deal with health insurance costs they can’t afford.
That’s the reality.
Americans deserve better. You deserve a health care system that works as well for you as it does for the status quo; one you can depend on — that won’t deny you coverage when you need it most or charge you crippling out-of-pocket co-pays. Health insurance reform means guaranteeing the health care security and stability you deserve.
President Barack Obama promised he’d bring change to Washington and fix our broken, unsustainable health insurance system. You can help deliver that change. Visit WhiteHouse.gov/RealityCheck, get the facts and spread the truth. The stakes are just too high to do nothing.

So I replied with this:
Reality Check re: Health Care/Insurance Reform,
You cannot expect me to trust this administration to care about people and their health care needs, when the first act in the first week of presidential duties was to issue Statement of President Barack Obama on Rescinding the Mexico City Policy, effectively funding abortions around the world. If our economy was truly as bad as it appeared to be; before your spending and printing of bogus money that ensure a collapse of the dollar and with it any economy it supports, How could you justify adding the expense and the bad will of murdering unborn children to our credit? You are not following the Constitution in the destruction of America as we have known it. You expect me to trust you and this poor excuse of appointed czars and rule-makers to have me and my parents and grand children’s needs as a concern? I do not trust you and you will have to repent of your evil ways to gain any trust from most God fearing men and women.
I will not hold my breath but will go to a town hall meeting for Jeff Flake today and recommend he vote to slow down your train-wreck of destruction to America or he can expect me to campaign against him next election. I voted for Ron Paul this election so don’t lump me with Democrat or Republican. I believe America should be a Constitutional Republic as stated originally. We do not need an Oligarchy of rich thugs as you are moving fast, following the trends of progressive democrat and republican.
