Myrick statement on White House “Fishy” information program

US Representative Sue Myrick (NC-09) has released the  following statement in response to the White House’s decision to  discontinue the collection of “fishy” information on health care reform:

“A program like this was never necessary. People have every right to voice their concerns about proposed health care reform without the fear  that they will be reported to the White House. With these tactics no longer being used, I hope that the health care debate can continue in a  meaningful and productive manner.”

Rep. Myrick sent a letter to President Obama earlier this month asking  him two questions: 1) How will the “fishy” information collected via be used?; and 2) Will the people who are flagged as  “fishy” be made aware that they’ve been reported?

To date, there has been no reply.
