The Virtual Counter-Protest: Clicking for Obamacare

without comments

Recognizing that proponents of the Democratic plan to overhaul American healthcare have not been assembling spontaneously in any numbers at town hall events to counter the protesters, the White House has defaulted to the “Forward” button on supporters’ email. (Virtual counter-protests are so much easier!)

I guess Axelrod is sensible enough to know that, among proponents of their healthcare plan, there is a deficit in the ardor that compels Americans to actually go to these events, stand out in the heat, and passionately and vocally make their beliefs known.

  Dear Friend,This is probably one of the longest emails I’ve ever sent, but it could be the most important.Across the country we are seeing vigorous debate about health insurance reform. Unfortunately, some of the old tactics we know so well are back — even the viral emails that fly unchecked and under the radar, spreading all sorts of lies and distortions.As President Obama said at the town hall in New Hampshire, “where we do disagree, let’s disagree over things that are real, not these wild misrepresentations that bear no resemblance to anything that’s actually been proposed.”So let’s start a chain email of our own. At the end of my email, you’ll find a lot of information about health insurance reform, distilled into 8 ways reform provides security and stability to those with or without coverage, 8 common myths about reform and 8 reasons we need health insurance reform now.Right now, someone you know probably has a question about reform that could be answered by what’s below. So what are you waiting for? Forward this email.

Thanks,
David

David Axelrod
Senior Adviser to the President

P.S. We launched www.WhiteHouse.gov/realitycheck this week to knock down the rumors and lies that are floating around the internet. You can find the information below, and much more, there. For example, we’ve just added a video of Nancy-Ann DeParle from our Health Reform Office tackling a viral email head on. Check it out:
