President Obama Wants You to Make a Healthcare Reform Commercial

In many ways, the fight for health insurance reform comes down to a battle over information. The more people know about how broken the system is and the President's plan to fix it, the more they want change. But there are an awful lot of lies to cut through, and a whole lot of truth to get out.

So today, we're proud to announce a powerful new way for you to help: Organizing for America's Health Reform Video Challenge.

This is your chance -- you ingenious, insightful, funny people out there -- to make a 30-second ad telling the story about why the status quo has got to go, or explaining how the Obama plan will ensure we get the secure, quality care we need without breaking the budget.

The top submissions will be voted on by the public and a panel of experts, with the winning ad aired on national television. This is your opportunity to add your voice and creativity to the debate, get some great exposure for your work, and make a huge difference.

From an email sent to me by Natalie Foster, from the Barack Obama mailing list, titled: "Health reform video challenge." 9.27.09

Immediate reactions:
1. Hope they get some creative submissions from Health 2.0/Medicine 2.0 folks
2. Hope they get some creative submissions from people we DON'T know
3. This is a great play by the Obama administration to get free creative/ad work done
4. I hope the administration appreciates and archives words/phrases shared in submissions - I'd like to see a semantic analysis on hot point syntax

Curious - would you submit a video? Why or why not?
