Dan Pfeiffer is the White House spokesman, which means he doesn’t say anything without the POS’s approval.
In effect, to borrow a character from JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, Dan Pfeiffer is the Mouth of Sauron.
Yesterday, I did a post on Edie Sundby, the California woman who has Stage 4 gallbladder cancer and will lose her excellent healthcare plan because of Obamacare — because her UnitedHealth plan does not meet the “standards” of Obamacare.
Instead of being empathetic for the terrible predicament in which a Stage-4 cancer victim now finds herself, Pfeiffer heartlessly and callously shifts the blame from Obamacare to Sundby’s insurance company and to capitalism:
Melissa Cline for Newsmax, Nov. 5, 2013, that Twitter lit up over White House spokesman Dan Pfeiffer’s statement blaming a Stage 4 cancer patient and insurance companies — instead of the president’s signature legislation — for the woman losing the coverage that has kept her alive [for 7 years] despite a dire prognosis.
Pfeiffer’s is an official Twitter account, used to speak on behalf of the administration.
His account was besieged with responses. Angry tweeters retweeted the responses of others, starting a firestorm in cyberspace.
Sundby is only one of hundreds of thousands across the country receiving similar letters from their current insurance carriers, despite President Lucifer’s assertions that under Obamacare, “If you like your insurance, you can keep it” and “If you like your doctors, you can keep them.”
- “Obamacare disaster: Health insurances cancelling policies of hundreds of thousands,” Oct. 22, 2013.
- “Elderly Americans in a panic over losing doctors because of Obamacare,” Oct. 25, 2013.
- “Top U.S. hospitals are opting out of Obamacare,” Nov. 1, 2013.
I wonder how many of those who are discovering their health insurances have or will be cancelled and who have lost the doctors they trust, had voted for the POS. More importantly, what are they gonna do about it?
