The White House...we are looking for a few good snitches.

This is a quote from our President speaking on those who attempt to expose the realities of the healthcare plan.
“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 email@example.com.”
What exactly is the White House going to do with the information they gather on these e-mailers and website creators? This is not about clarification of the facts, this is about building a database of dissenters. This should put to rest all the talk about former presidential abuses of power. This president has overreached his authority more in 6 months, than any other president in history. Mr. President, members of both houses, please stop the rhetoric and give the American people the transparency promised during the campaign.
