Reality Checks: Face to Face

During last week's town hall on health insurance reform in New Hampshire, we wanted to make sure as many people as possible had a chance to ask their questions. So in addition to all the questions the President took inside Portsmouth High School, we also took several questions from people hanging out outside the school. What we heard was somewhat surprising, and a lesson in how far some of the misinformation spread by those invested in the status quo has spread. Those asking the questions were clearly sincere though, and deserve an answer to their concerns, so Linda Douglass of the White House Office of Health Reform took some time to sit down and address them. 
We're releasing the videos through our Reality Check page as "Face to Face Reality Checks" – go have a look, and if you've heard any of these myths from friends, relatives, or associates help us spread the word via email, twitter, Facebook or whatever avenue you choose.  As the President wrote, "We are bound to disagree, but let's disagree over issues that are real."
