Michigan Democrat Rep. Gary Peters threatens TV station licenses over Obamacare ad
Washington Examiner ^ | 2/22/14 | Charles Hoskinson

Posted on 02/23/2014 4:41:10 AM PST by Libloather

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.

Let’s file a class action suit against any TV or Radio station that ran ads for any democrat saying anything positive about 0bamacare to get reelected in 2012. this would include Barry, Joe, Pelosi, etc: “If you like your plan... The average family will save...”

Unfit for any office, and since started the escalation, he belongs in prison, or on the gallows with a noose on his neck. Thanks Libloather.

Holy goose-stepping hordes Batman!

An “American” congressman is threatening some citizens with government action because he doesn’t like their comments.

What great ad...

If Rep. Peters were a actual human instead of scum sucking rat, instead of threatening stations to pull their license, maybe he should offer her financial help...

After all dems are for the "little people"

SIGNING "THE BIG EFFIN' DEAL" (now known as "The Big Effin' Debacle")

"Those Democrats leering over my shoulder swallowed
hook, line and sinker my promises that Americans could:

(1) keep their existing health plans,
(2) keep their own doctors that they like,
(3) keep their 25-year-olds on the family health plan,
(4) never be denied coverage for a pre-existing condition,
(5) sign up instantly on my tech-savvy government Web site,
(6) buy insurance only after becoming seriously ill."
(7) save $2,500 in annual premiums in the bargain....
(8) All without any new taxes."

===================================================

As far back as 2008, at the presidential debate in Nashville, Democrat candidate Obama advanced his signature healthcare plan---ultimately enacted, by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote, into the "Affordable Care Act"

QUOTING 2008 OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if you’ve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All I’m going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. You’ll still have choice of doctor.” Repeated over and over ---- with the promise that every American family would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.

Significantly, Obamba NEVER corrected lock-stepping Democrats, all reading from the same Democrat talking points, all of them repeating the same Democrat promises---over and over again.

LOCK-STEPPING PARTY LOYALTY NOT SEEN SINCE 1930-40's ERA EUROPE Obama And the Dems marched in lockstep.....the persistent Dumbocrat drumbeat ---- in obeisance to Obama ---- kept ringing reassuringly in our ears: "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan."

====================================================

Lock-stepping Democrat Cong Gary Peters Voted To Pass ObamaCare. (H.R. 3590, Roll Call Vote #165, Passed 219-212: R 0-178; D 219-34, 3/21/10, Peters Voted Yea)

In March 2013, Democrat Cong Gary Peters Celebrated The Third Anniversary Of ObamaCare’s Passage and Highlighted How O/Care Is Helping Michiganders.

“Today Rep. Gary Peters marked Saturday as the 3rd anniversary of the Affordable Care Act becoming law by highlighting the many ways it’s helping families across Michigan. Democrat Peters criticized Lansing Republicans for refusing to partner in the state health care exchange marketplace.” (Press Release, “Democrat Congressman Gary Peters Marks The 3rd Anniversary Of The Affordable Care Act--Highlighting How It’s Already Helping Michiganders,” Rep. Gary Peters, 3/22/13)

Turnabout is fair play and I hope ads similar to this are played nationwide early and often.

The Rats savaged Romney with an ad that claimed Romney was responsible for the death of a woman whose health care was canceled when her husbands company was liquidated.

That was bogus. This is real.

Constitutional Amendment suggested:

The EXEMPT and their EXEMPT families and EXEMPT staff
should have their holdings and bank accounts seized
by the American people for ANY loss or pain of
any American which henceforth incurs from the evil
known as ObamaCARE which the EXEMPT forced on OTHERS.

Oh' yes...EVERY DEMOCRAT needs to have this type of ad run against them...

What I like about this type of ad is it is not a negative ad, it's just simply the truth...

Negative ads do work, but they tends to suppress the vote as it turns people off...

The dems bought this Obamacare beast and they should have it hang around their necks at every chance..

JUST A FRIENDLY SUGGESTION: Gary Peters should get
professional help---he appears to be having bouts of schizophrenia.

BACKSTORY Democrat Peters was once all gaga over Obamacare---dripping w/ pride b/c he had voted in lockstep with fellow Democrats to enact the "Big Effin' Deal" (as Joe Biden called it).

GO FIGURE Now Peters is toying with the First Amendment---
threatening TV station licenses over an Obamacare ad.

Peters is so unappreciative---heck, Joe Biden came to Detroit---Raising Money for Cong Gary Peters’ Senate Race. (Jonathan Oosting, “VP Joe Biden To Do Fundraiser For Gary Peters,” MLive, 1/15/14)

Peters Is A Loyal Lock-stepping Democrat---he Voted With Obama 90 Percent Of The Time. (Democrat Rep. Gary Peters, Congressional Quarterly, Accessed 1/15/14)

WHILE LOCK-STEPPING PETERS PROBABLY APPRECIATES THE BIDEN CASH, HE LIKELY ISN’T A FAN OF WHAT THE OBAMA-BIDEN AGENDA HAS DONE TO HIS POLLING NUMBERS---b/c Michiganders Opposition To ObamaCare Is Driving Down Peters’ Poll Numbers.

Imagine what threats and paybacks that SOB will indulge in if elected.

I am not one for clogging up the courts with frivolous lawsuits, but if there is some way to personally drain his finances because of his threats, do it.

Amen.

Terri Lynn Land for Senate

I saw the lawyer letter. What kind of lawyer uses a Washington Post editorial as part of a legal argument regarding "truth?"

That was just pure intimidation tactics. Knowing AFP's Scott Hagerstrom, that's going to just piss him off.
