The White House sent out an e-mail blast this morning from presidential aide David Axelrod with a list of eight "common myths about health insurance reform." Some of the eight are things the White House wants the public to think are false: "Reform would encourage 'euthanasia'" or "We can't afford reform." But among the other things the White House lists as "myths" are "Vets' health care is safe and sound," "You can keep your own insurance" and "Reform will benefit small business - not burden it." If these are the "myths," the facts must be really scary. And the Obama team's vaunted communications machine may be less formidable than had been thought.
