Obama: Turn in Anyone who Opposes Me

From the White House Blog:

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 e-mails 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 e-mail or see something on the Web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

Mr. Obama, you talk of “disinformation.”  Can you show us a single example of a country with socialized medicine, other than Malta, that actually *works*?

Can you tell us how we are supposed to make free medical choices when the government is in charge?

Can you guarantee us that your plan is not going to fund contraception or abortion?

Can you guarantee us that there will not be “rationining,” euthanasia or sterilization, even though your closest advisors tell us this is the case?

Can you guarantee that you are not taking away our right to purchase private insurance, taxing us for having it, or otherwise penalizing private insurance versus your government plan?

Oh, and how are you going to pay for this?
