E-Mail Gate Solved!

With the battle for Health Care reform continuing, the White House has full-pressed the process, after they failed to get it through in two weeks, so they wouldn't have to actually answer for any of this - from another front the White House denied the existence of unsolicited e-mails, so let's take a look at the chronology (again, imagine how the past administration would have been vilified by the media if they had done any of this) - and of course, during all of this, at the height of the health care battle, Obama is on another vacation (again, insert Bush, and watch the media all over this - but now, not a word) - while he still declares that this plan with be deficit neutral, which as an economist, I'll be happy to demonstrate this will be impossible without rationing, which he claims will not happen - come on people, stop drinking the Kool-Aid:

"FOX News has offered the White House examples of what hundreds of people say were unsolicited e-mails on health care, Barack Obama's presidential campaign or his political organization, Organizing for America, but spokesman Robert Gibbs has declined to respond.
The offer comes after a testy exchange on Thursday between correspondent Major Garrett and Gibbs over the e-mail list.
Gibbs told Garrett on Thursday that he couldn't respond until he saw who received the e-mail because he doesn't have "omnipotent clarity."
Asked whether the White House seeks other pieces of information to identify those who might be curious about health care even though they have never signed up for e-mails or visited the Web site, Gibbs said he would have to see the e-mails to know."

Then of course, the White House again, blames "sinister" outside forces:

"The White House is blaming the controversy over its Web site and mass e-mails on viral rumors, "fear-mongering" and "sinister conspiracy theories" even as it acknowledges problems with its online practices.
After confirming to FOX News over the weekend that third-party groups could be responsible for official White House e-mails that have been sent to people who never signed up for them, President Obama's new media director took to the official White House blog to "clear up" the confusion.
In a posting Monday night, Macon Phillips again pointed the finger at "outside groups of all political stripes" but downplayed the backlash over the unwanted e-mails."

And now, the While House realizes that they did contract with a firm to send out these e-mails - again, amazing:

"The White House hired a private communications company based in Minnesota to distribute mass e-mails, helping to shed light on how some recipients received e-mails in support of President Obama's health care plan without signing up for them, FOX News has learned.
The company, Govdelivery, describes itself as the world's leading provider of government-to-citizen communication solutions and says its e-mail service provides a fully-automated on-demand public communication system.
It is still unknown how much taxpayer money the White House provides to Govdelivery for its services.

The revelation comes after the White House acknowledged this week that people were receiving unsolicited e-mails from the administration about health care reform and suggested the problem was with third-party groups that placed the recipients' names on the distribution list."
