Apparently it's not enough to use the IRS and FCC to shut down the opposition.
What does an aspiring democrat Senator wannabe do when he doesn't like an opposition TV ad?
Attack the woman cancer victim in the ad, and then threaten to take the station off the air.
While Julie Boonstra of Dexter, Mich., struggles to survive leukemia, she now also has to cope with being called a liar by the Democrat who wants to be her next senator.
And the campaign of Rep. Gary Peters is also going after television stations airing ads in which her story is featured, threatening their licenses.
The ad by Americans for Prosperity features Boonstra talking about how her insurance was canceled under Obamacare and saying that Peters' decision to vote for the law "jeopardized my health." The ads are airing in Michigan as Peters seeks the Democratic nomination to replace Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., who is not seeking re-election.
The Obamedia sprang into action, helping to pound Boonstra:
Media organizations investigating the ad's claims note that Boonstra was able to find comparable new insurance under the law; the Washington Post's "Fact Checker" blog gave the ad "two Pinocchios" (as compared to four for President Obama's claim that people could keep their insurance under the law).
Not so fast.
Lets lay them out: Mr. Peters goes to Washington and votes for Obamacare. Because of this, back home, Ms. Boonstra, a mother who was given a 20 percent chance of surviving her cancer, looses her health insurance. It takes her two uncertain, sleep-deprived months to replace her plan, with Obamacare delaying every step of the way through its broken website, weeks of snail-mail delays and days of backed up phone lines. Ms. Boostra finally ended up with a plan she doesnt think is even comparable to the security of her old plan. And when she told her story, Mr. Peters, the politician who wants to be her senator and represent her in Washington sicced his lawyers on her, questioning her trials and, in a page right out of Richard Nixons playbook, threatening the license of the station that dared to air it.
In his rebuke of the ad, Glenn Kessler makes the same mistake liberals make every day of the week- they confuse coverage with care.
Boonstra was able to find a plan with a similar overall cost. That's where the discussion normally ends for liberals, but it's wrong. For cancer patients, successful treatment very often hinges upon drug therapy. Not only can you not keep your plan, you might not be able to keep your drugs:

She's supposed to understand that that means she's not worth trying to save.
She's refusing to take the blue pill. This is causing her local Democrat politician pig slop-trough slurper to get very very angry and upset.
NO APPEAL for YOU! (Death Panel Nazi)
Get this woman on television—maybe on O’Reilly?
If the political party labels were reversed, she would be a household name by Wednesday.
She *was* on TV. I think it was Megan Kelly’s show. I saw a part of it.
The important does she get free birth control and/or abortions?
Actual women’s health...not so much.
The details don’t mean shit. She was promised by Obama and this fascist punk of a Congressman that should could keep her plan. They lied and now Peters is abridging her rights. He should be tried, found guilty and imprisoned for violating her civil rights.
He’s had a pretty quiet career. He picked a hell of a time to set himself on fire.
Someone might think he deserves a good ole Hawaiian punch.
Suppression of truth is a socalist trait and keeps them in power longer.
Edging ever closer to a police state.
I say we should help by throwing him an open can of free gasoline.
I think Terri Lynn Land just moved closer to winning that seat.
She probably has full access to prostate coverage.
Get this woman on televisionmaybe on OReilly?
I THINK she’s been on the Kelly File on FNC, or it may have been another woman with cancer and with the same circumstances. Whichever, the loss of needed drugs to combat the cancer, due to Obamacare, is basically a death sentence.
Lawyers should be lined up for this woman, to sue the hell out of this idiot Dem for calling her a liar, etc., and require him to pay for her treatments that Obamacare doesn’t provide... and which she previously had!
You beat me to it.
I should have read all comments before posting.
