There’s a lot of confusion out there. They say there are no dumb questions. The White House seems to believe that: members of the White House staff are now featured in a set of videos calmly answering America’s questions at WhiteHouse.Gov’s Reality Check. No matter how stupid, health insurance company fear-driven or Fox-news lie driven. The questions were taken outside of a recent Obama healthcare townhalls. I think this is a great idea. I really urge the folks at the White House to make it plainer for folks and give Americans a bulleted list of what the reforms look like such as eliminating the whole pre-existing condition crap, no more emergency room visits that cost $10 Gs and making sure you don’t get dropped from insurance when you get sick. You know that stuff.

As David Swerdlick at The Root said:

Not that Obama is Mr. Perfect. As his Uncle Real would tell him, sometimes…

“You need to get to the point.”

Obama definitely needs some help from”Uncle Real” out there. He should go spend an afternoon at the barbershop, not up in a gated house in Martha’s Vineyard. I’m totally serious.

But I digress. Here’s a couple of the vidz and you can get more over at Send them to the most ignant people in your life saying ignant things about healthcare reform. I chose the black staffers cuz this is JJP, but it’s a diverse slice of White House staffers of all ethnicities up in the house.

Melody Barnes, the President’s Director of the Domestic Policy Council, debunks the malicious myth that reform would encourage or even require euthanasia for seniors.

Mike Strautmanis, Chief of Staff for Valerie Jarrett and father of a child with a disability, addresses the myth that health insurance reform will mean children with disabilities will not get the care they need. To the contrary, reform will make insurance more affordable, provide more options, and eliminate discrimination in purchasing health insurance so families won’t be turned down if a parent or child has a pre-existing disability or other health condition.
