The White House played dumb when asked how unsolicitated emails about healthcare reform ended up in the boxes of taxpayers across this country. Robert Gibbs tried to claim that the White House does not collect email addresses and that somehow they must have gotten the address through a third party. Freedom Works, which is one of the groups sponsoring the Sept. 12th March On Washington, said that they might have inadvertantly been responsible since they direct people to sign petitions and email the White House’s website. Now the truth comes out that the job of spamming taxpayers about ObamaCare was farmed (pharmed – lol) out to a company named Govdelivery.
Govdelivery is one of the world’s leading providers of government-to-citizen communication solutions. The e-mail service it provides is fully-automated and an on-demand public communication system. Govdelivery has been paid thousands of dollars in taxpayer money to send hundreds of e-mails out to supporters to help in the healthcare information battle. These emails came from senior adviser David Axelrod. The company has also sent out mass emails in the past after Obama’s Cairo speech and the confirmation of Sonia Sotomayor to Supreme Court Justice. Obviously, we know now that recipients were not all supporters of the President or his healthcare reform plans.
Rep. Thaddeus McCotter of Michigan said of the revelation, “This is yet another ominous chapter in the administration’s rabid campaign to jam its radical health care scheme onto an unwilling public by any means necessary.” And for those who would claim that the White House cannot be blamed for this since they hired an independent company to do the spamming, Chris Hansen who is a staff attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union told FOX News that if the White House used the private firm, it’s the same as if it had sent the e-mails.
There is no issue with Govdelivery on the topic of these healthcare emails. They were paid to do a job they have done for several federal agencies and political figures. The fault lies with the White House and the Obama Administration, which apparently is so aware that they are losing on this government option healthcare, that they will do anything to indoctrinate the masses. That includes spamming them with their facts, which are easily proved to be mis-information. If only the White House would read HR3200, ie pages 16, 50, 59, 95, 102, 124, 170 203 and so on, they would know the actual fact: HR3200 is garbage!
