BOOM! Edie Sundby fires back at White House: The biggest loser is trust and respect in government leaders

Edie Sundby told Megyn Kelly that it’s absurd and condescending for the White House to claim that all insurance plans being cancelled are substandard. And while she feels she is a big loser in all of this at the loss of her plan and her doctors, she believes the biggest loser is trust and respect in our government and our leaders.

  1. yes

    this woman is absolutely correct, concerning what has happened and will continue to happen to the public trust

    that’s why we need a HUGE change from the status quo, wrt leadership (on both sides of the aisle)

    just studying Gov Sarah Palin’s history reveals that she is truly one-of -a-kind

    I mean – the mere fact that the Palin Admin emails from her Governorship in AK are available IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN and have received full and intensive SCRUTINY is UNPRECEDENTED

    which other Leader could withstand such a BLOWTORCH?

    HA! … the answer is NOBODY

    (Romney *destroyed* the harddrives from his tenure as Governor in MA remember … as did Huckabee)

    Hey – won’t it be GREAT if after this terrible oppressive period in America’s history, We The People DEMAND that any future Candidate for POTUS not only make available ALL their personal documents for scrutiny but ALSO THEIR ADMINISTRATION EMAILS!

    LOL x 1000!

    now, won’t that be **upsetting**? **__**

    After the terrible corruption of this Obama Regime is fully exposed Americans will be crying out for TRANSPARENCY in Governance …. the only thing that will be able to restore the Public Trust

  2. Right on, Edie. You go, girl. The whole of DC is infected with greed, crony capitalism, stupidity, and self serving. None of them care a fig about their constituents. They haven’t given us a reason to trust any of them for years.

    1. Ditto! Betsey_Ross! Ditto!
      It’s hard to say what is worse. The communists in the Democrat Party who inflicted this pain and misery on our nation and so many millions of totally unaware and uninformed people or the Vichy French Republicans who collaborated with them to do this by throwing the fight that Ted Cruz tried to wage or by throwing the elections in New Jersey and Virginia and elsewhere by not supporting the most conservative candidates in the race because they made a collaborationist deal with Nero Obama.
      They give Benedict Arnold a good name.

  3. Megyn,
    You’ve been a big Obama enabler, this is what is going to happen to your children one day, when you are no longer alive to protect them. I’m sorry, I don’t like, Kelly. She has done damage enabling him.

    1. NJK, I can’t say that you are entirely wrong about Megyn Kelly doing things that enabled Nero Obama to inflict the harm he has inflicted on so many millions of people. She actually has done a lot of his enabling and so have several others at FOX.
      At the same time her reports on the damage Nero Obama is doing to our country are extremely accurate and she could have kept silent about all this or did an MSNBC-LSD-CNN kind of reporting but she didn’t. I do appreciate the accuracy of her reports and hope she continues.

  4. She can also thank John McCain, Mitch McConnell, Kelly Ayotte, John Cornyn and several others for this.


  5. I saw this live. I thought she was actually being nice and was quite restrained. They are playing with her life.

  6. Remember folks, the death tax increased to 55% under ObamaCare. The government financially benefits when people with assets die. They collect the death tax, there is no expenditure of SS or Medicare going forward.

    With all respect to this woman, you don’t FIX socialism, you argue to repeal it.

  7. Want to insult someone unbearably? Call them a politician. That’s a worse insult than anything unprintable.

  8. Another case of someone minding their own business, just trying to do what they need to do (in this woman’s case – surviving); the insurance company is doing what they are suppose to do; and the doctors are doing what they are suppose to do.

    Enter the Goon Squad – telling every party involved they are not non-compliant, sub-standard, and worse… greedy. Spread the death. Spread sub-standard medcal coverage. Spread the financial hardship. Screw these jackboots!


    I think the American people are responsible and smart enough to take care of themselves. For those who are not, they need to figure it out or suffer their own self-inflicted consequences.

  9. Who would have ever thought that the Government of the United States, the home of the free, would become an enemy of your health and let you die if need be?

  10. I know I’m a greedy person. How do I know this? Well… my college Democrat Economics 101 course tells me so. So I’m going to do something about it. I’m so greedy that I’m going to quit my job, abandon my savings and my pension plans… and I’ll leave my personal possessions on the side of the road and ensure I never make any money again whatsoever. That’s how greedy I am.

    In fact I never knew how greedy I was until my greediness was modeled to me by the greedy health insurance companies. After all, they pulled out of the market… abandoned all their sources of income in the form of customer policies and totally left behind them any chance at having a viable business. Man! How greedy of them.

    I sure am glad Democrat Economics 101 is still being offered in college, or I would never have learned about greed.

    [edit] This illustrates how utterly incomprehensible the reasoning of the left and of the Democrats in their claim that insurance companies are willingly driving themselves out of business in pursuit of their greed. Then they turn around and declare that rising insurance rates are a similar manifestation of their greed. Boy! Talk about having it both ways.

    1. So you are claiming to be an idiot suffering from headupthearseitis as well?
      Stop working, by all means, leave the vacancy for someone who appreciates having a job. It’s a barrel of fun being homeless, I am sure you will love it.

      1. I’ll quote what a great thinker said at one time. I’m sure you’ll recognize who it is:

        “if what we had to say didn’t describe them we weren’t talking about them.”

        So you must be describing someone else, or you’ve not explained yourself very well.

            1. What you posted is known as a sarcasm fail. One fifth of the policy holders who received cancelation notices re-upped at a much increased rate.
              Pulling out of a market that is only going to build your clientelle with people who cost you money because their health is poor is a smart business move.
              You should have done a remedial reading course in order to refresh you comprehension skills before taking any course.
              I guess I was talking about you.

              1. …”holders who received cancelation cancellation notices…”

                And gee! Here I thought the Insurance companies were cancelling plans because of new stringent minimum coverage requirements. They really are evil… cancelling plans of healthy people. And where will these healthy people now go… ah yes! To the exchange to help pay for Catastrocare of course.

                But thanks… I’ll pass on your kind advice… advice from someone who obviously has personal experience of sarcasm failure… and disjointed writing… and poor spelling of course. Now you go and have a great day there cupcake!

    1. No. But under Obamacare, they may decide you have a substandard life.

      If you read Emanuel’s article, he talks of quality-adjusted life-years, as the basis for how the IPAB would approve or disapprove treatment, for Medicare payment ie, it’s just not “worth” it to the govt to keep you alive. Remember Obama? “Just give her some pain pills.” Obama will fill the IPAB with people who think like that.

    2. Sooner or later we’ll all be required to use GreenPublic Transportation. Safer and cleaner for so many reasons! (sarc off)

  11. Will Democrats get away with it? Probably. They still claim they were responsible for bringing us out of the great recession. People are pretty stupid, so they’ll believe whatever Obama tells them.

  12. definition – substandard insurance plan

    This is a health insurance plan that once upon time insurance companies were able to offer to US citizens. It provided coverage desired by the purchaser at a reasonable cost.

    definition – obamacare

    This is a single payer deal that requires one to purchase unnecessary insurance coverage at exorbitant costs. It generally doesn’t cover many things, which were previously covered by a “substandard insurance plan”. Also known as redistribution of wealth.

  13. In a surprise policy move, Obama introduced new legislation to standardize automobile options designed to make vehicles more affordable. Nicknamed Obamacar, the new regulations define option packages as bronze, silver, gold, platinum or ‘for politicians and their staffs’. All cars will be required to offer at least the bronze option group.

    When asked for specifics, Obama said “If you like you car, you can keep you car.” A copy of the legislation provided to the media however indicated that only cars which meet the new standards will be able to be insured.

    Each car will be limited to two seats unless you get a referral from your General Car Provider. Specialist car providers may sell you larger cars if you can demonstrate need or special circumstances.

    Features required in all option packages include hand controls in case the driver can’t use their feet, a wheelchair lift, heated seats and hydrogen fuel cells. Each car must have at least two spare tires or a bicycle for emergencies.

    Obama car exchanges will allow buyers to see all car options in one place. Tax credits will be provided to those who can’t afford cars. Unfortunately the amount of tax credit will be unknown until you file your taxes the following year.

    1. Brother… that was a brilliant post! Assuming you wrote this, may I share in some E-mails to friends if I give you credit?

        1. Thanks Mark. That is one of the more humorous (yet maddening because your reasoning is so spot-on) posts I have read in a while.

    1. Well, they’re still just “nudging” people. Haven’t started carting them away to gulag’s and concentration camps, yet.

  14. One question: What the hell does these political apparatchik know about medicine and medical insurance to decide what is good and what is bad?

    1. They are gods. Their egos tell them so. Their egos have been whispering this into their dreams for years, and they’ve finally accepted their high and lofty destiny. They’ve decided that it’s not right for them, out of false modesty and humility, to deprive we the unenlightened peoplemass of their positively incandescent, benevolent, and absolute knowledge, wisdom, and beauty.

      (sarc off) Excuse me, I must leave for a few minutes. I’ve made myself ill.

    1. I couldn’t finish reading it.
      America has to be filled with the most mind numbing dumb people on the planet. They re-elected the monster in the WH and continue to elect people of no worth to anyone but themselves, i.e. terry mccauliffe (I don’t care that I mis-spelled his vile last name).

  15. I really don’t envy this womans situation. A nation that elected Obama twice, and now elected more progressives in NJ (Corey Booker), DeBlasio in NY, and McAuliffe in VA, is not a nation that is awake. Blood and wars and generosity, only for this generation to destroy everything our forefathers built.

    1. I’m in the same kind of funk you’re in right now. It seems so hopeless, especially with the propaganda media machine going 24/7 on behalf of the criminals in the white house. I have to keep reminding myself that the revolutionary war was fought by a very determined 30% minority, but it’s hard to keep the hope when the party which causes the problems keeps getting reelected.

      I told my husband after election day (I live in NJ) that we are either living among outright socialists (unfortunately, I know quite a few of these extreme leftwing nuts who have the audacity to celebrate July 4th, as if they’re actually patriotic Americans), or total morons who have no idea they’re voting for socialists. It’s pathetic and depressing.

      1. You summed up my feelings exactly.
        It’s mind boggling to watch what is going on in this nation. It doesn’t have the same feel of the America I grew up in.
        I’m just thankful my hope is in Jesus and not any human being. Even still, its just so sad to watch the greatest nation ever known give itself over to pure evil. 🙁

      1. Cheer up, it WILL be worse. Then we can look back fondly on this time as “the good old days”.

        I like to encourage people every chance I get.

  16. Why can’t these tea-poopers realize that Edie’s plan and every single plan that was out there was a scam and never paid a dime in benefits to anyone until Obamacare fixed the healthcare system? If you were too stupid to realize that you were being scammed and that these cancer-treatment-paying plans were way too substandard for you then you deserve to lose your insurance.

    1. You are a special kind of stupid, aren’t you.. Do you know the cost of fighting cancer… Obamacare hasn’t fixed anything, in fact, obamcare hasn’t done a damn thing yet, let alone paid for any medical treatments..

          1. It took me a few seconds to realize it was sarcasm. There are occasional trolls who post and believe that sort of thing; that’s why the problem.

            Pallone needs an attitude adjustment.

    2. just heard Lanny Davis say he supports Obamacare, but it needs to be fixed. Needs to be fixed? It’s working even better than predicted, just as we feared.

      1. Fixed? Hey Lanny, in order to be ‘fixed’ something ha to have ‘worked’ in the first place. 😉
        But then I doubt that somebody who would probably have to google the instructions on how to use a pair of pliers, would understand that.

  17. The biggest loss is trust and respect for politicians??? How naïve

    First, they don’t care if you trust and respect. They only care that you OBEY!!
    Second, I have never trusted any politician. I respect very few, and probably all of those are dead. And that is clue, because usually they don’t name anything after a politician until he is gone – except in dictatorships!! Obamacare?

    Just in case on one has said this yet, Obamacare is going to kill more people than cancer.

  18. The end justifies the means to this administration and the entire democrat party.



    Neither the end nor the means is justified or acceptable here. The entire democrat party is not acceptable here. That portion of the republican party which did not stand with the House and those Senators who stood with Cruz and Lee, are not acceptable either. Neither is the republican establishment “elite” old guard.

    Our Constitution guarantees us individual freedom. Neither the democrats, nor the GOPe give a d*mn about the individual.The individual has been subjugated by the collective.

    We’ve a handful of those representing us who cherish those God given freedoms embodied in our Constitution. They are the exceptions. If and when they become the norm, we can once again be free, and hope for freedom for our children, grand children, and beyond.

    That freedom is no longer self-evident. The Founders wanted it to be guaranteed. It appears those Founders have been tossed from the board room… surreptitiously bought out.

    Should I throw away my copy of that document, as our “representatives” have? Should this lady have to toss hers too…or should what is written therein be demanded? Well, it appears if it ain’t demanded it’ll be disbanded. I can’t live with that. This lady can’t either.

    Can you?

  19. This should be called ObamaTAXcare.

    That is why rates are skyrocketing. You are not paying for your insurance you are paying for your insurance and some bums insurance that refuses to get a job.

  20. “The biggest loser is trust & respect for the gubment & the politicians”? What trust & respect?? They lost mine a long time ago when Reagan finished his term.

  21. It has been proven that Obama-Care made insurance plans substandard, substandard according to the Draconian regulations prescribed by Obama-Care. It is estimated that over 100 million will lose the insurance they like and were told they could keep.

    1. Actually, in an earlier House Bill, the language simply voided all private insurance on the effective date of the legislation.

      1. Wait, I didn’t read the bill to see all the good things that were supposed to be in it. I trusted the Dems to just pass the law because Nancy Pelosi told me how good it was going to be. You mean Nancy Pelosi lied to me? Our Dear Leader Obama lied to me too? That’s fantastic. (/sarc)

      2. It also said if you didn’t buy health insurance you would face 5 years in jail or a $250,000 fine! I heard Boehner read that the night it got rammed through the House.

      3. That bill was NOT the Bill that was passed. The senate took a tax code revision that allow additional tax breaks for veterans buying houses and altered it into the existing tax code revision (obamacare). You need to pay attention..

        1. True, and that is explicit in the phrase “earlier version.” This is one of the five bills that didn’t pass, but it shows the intent of the authors. Immediate and total phase out was replaced with staged and near-total phase out – which Obama just delayed to preserve the electability of the Dems in 2014.

  22. Who further nurtured, expounded upon, and quadrupled that distrust over the say, past five years or so? We thought it was bad during the reign of W, it is several times worse under the reign of O.

  23. This White House is full of evil and monsters. Where ever you look they are destroying anything and everything that they deem unworthy, even life.
