“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.” (http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/Facts-Are-Stubborn-Things/)
This is a threat to our freedom of speech! Texas Senator John Cornyn said:
“No one expects that when they exercise their First Amendment rights to ask questions or complain about a proposed government program that they’re going to be listed on a database in the White House. You don’t have to be a conspiracy theorist to see the potential for serious abuse.”
Some of you may see this as a small infraction of our rights and not be worried, but small infractions lead to even bigger ones. We need to fight for our rights, we need to complain to our own senators and thank John Cornyn for standing up for us. I am proud to say that John Cornyn is my senator. I am glad that at least someone has enough guts to stand against Obama. Thank You John Cornyn!
