Biden asks YouTubers to help bust healthcare myths

In the ongoing online battle over healthcare reform, the White House put their "Reality Check" series into 2nd gear today with a video from the Vice President. Biden is asking YouTubers to submit videos as a response to the call-out below, advocating for healthcare reform and, "bust[ing] the myth that it is not important to the American People." The user-generated make-over of the Reality Check site on whitehouse.gov, which originally featured only videos from Administration officials, also offers a quiz through which citizens can learn, "what's in reform for you?"

Is it really so hard to memorize a script to a 2 minute video?

lol This is so pathetic. The government is trying so hard to sell something that they know won't work.

This administration just proved with this "request" that it is far more dangerous than previously thought.

Okay, who thinks it a little odd that he doesn't say HOW it will be reformed? It seems to me that their mantra is simply about reformation. They keep how it will be reformed to themselves and believe that the american public, still hyped up on "change", will simply buy into it.

I guess they think because a YouTuber makes a video that makes it gospel.

All I can say is this administration is pathetic, and this is yet another pathetic example! Only 1538 days left.

Sorry Biden, you will not get any help here. Most YouTubers have your # already. We are tired of your propaganda and all the lies. We want you to read the bills and want you to show us exactly what is in these bills as promised. Do you actually expect us to believe anything coming out of the White House, democrate or republican. We are tired of all of the senate and congress trying to change our constitution and telling us what we need. No more. Get off YouTube and do your job. Which is work for us the American people and quit pushing your own agenda.

For one thing 4 years is only 1460 days, and we've already been through two hundred twenty some of those days.

"and its funny how he doesn't say WHAT the healthcare "myths" are"
Maybe he doesn't say all dozen of them, but here is a pretty close quote of what he did say were some of the myths.
"from the outlandish death panel claims to the idea that we're eliminating medicare benefits"

Greedy insurance corporations are getting super rich off the backs of the sick. Why are insurance companies fighting health care reform? Could it be that (boo hoo)insurance corporations will lose profits? Way to go VP Biden.
I am sick of the kool aid drinking(limbaugh dick lickers)& whiners complaining about Obama. The mess this country is in started with eight years of King Reagan and dictators Bush 1 and 2.
