David Axelrod of the White House sent out an e-mail today in which he says that
we’ve launched a new online resource — WhiteHouse.gov/RealityCheck — to help you separate fact from fiction and share the truth about health insurance reform.
That’s good that there will be a more unified White House approach to defining what health care insurance reform looks like to the Obama admin.
However, it’s also pretty presumptive.
It assumes what a bill that arrives on the president’s desk to sign or veto will look like. What if a bill arrives that does mess with veterans’ benefits or obviously will limit the type of insurance or coverage or what have you? Does that mean Obama will veto it?
With his track record of keeping to promises, I doubt it.
