Obama backers hope 'story bank' aids health reform
Organizing for America, an arm of the Democratic National Committee that helped elect President Barack Obama, is building a database of complaints from Americans about healthcare to help him push through an overhaul. The group has access to what it calls the "story bank," an online collection of short stories people submitted chronicling their frustrations with American healthcare. It has organized the stories geographically, plotting them on a Google map, and is encouraging supporters to tell others the stories as a way of building support for the president's effort to provide near-universal health coverage and cut medical costs.
