Cancer patient Edie Littlefield Sundby made this moving video after her 800 mile walk in celebration of six years of being alive, fighting Stage 4 gallbladder cancer.
The Daily Mail reported:
Edie Sundby, the 62 year-old California cancer survivor who made a powerful intervention into the Obamacare controversy with a stinging Wall Street Journal op-ed told MailOnline today blasted the ‘snotty’ tweet by a White house aide that attempted to undermine her moving story.
White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer sparked outrage on Monday by tweeting a link to a liberal blog post that claimed Sundby – who passionately described how she suffers under the changes of the Affordable Care Act – only lost her health insurance because of corporate greed.
Pfeiffer operates an ‘official’ White House Twitter feed, meaning that he speaks for the administration whenever he posts messages there.
Sundby said his tweet in response to her touching essay was ‘snotty,’ but then thanked Pfeiffer for pointing her to ‘some information that I was not privy to.’
‘I think the executive branch – president Obama actually – Do you know what would warm our hearts, really? It would be for President Obama to get up and say. “I have just put all my staff, and I just put my family, my precious family, on the health care exchanges. I believe so strongly that it will work and that it’s working now, that we’re going to get in the boat with you.”‘
She said Obama should issue an executive order ‘requiring that my cabinet and other parts of the federal government’s executive branch sign up for our health insurance on the exchanges.’
