The War on Julie Boonstra and other Obamacare cancer victims [who criticized Obamacare]
National Review ^ | March 15, 2016 | Henry Payne

Posted on 03/16/2014 7:23:57 PM PDT by grundle

Michigan is a crucial piece on the 2014 U.S. Senate chessboard, and Republicans have a good shot at gaining retiring Democrat Carl Levin’s open seat, given Democratic nominee Gary Peters’s unpopular House vote for the Affordable Care Act. Yet Peters has hope. The president’s unilateral delays in Obamacare mandates have eased planned layoffs by local governments and businesses. Moderate GOP governor Rick Snyder supports the ACA’s Medicaid expansion. And the state’s liberal news media have largely ignored the estimated 225,000-plus canceled individual policies and the job losses at medical-device maker Stryker.

But Julie Boonstra won’t be ignored. So she must be destroyed.

The Dexter, Mich., leukemia victim lost her coverage last fall and now stars in a devastating ad fingering Obamacare — and Peters — for her resulting distress. In an extraordinary media counterstrike, Boonstra, a schoolteacher, has come under assault from Democrats and their media allies decrying her as a liar and an ignoramus for failing to embrace her new, Obamacare-approved plan.

As with outspoken female Obamacare cancer victims in other states, the intent is to intimidate critics from coming forward. Senator Harry Reid’s outrageous Senate-floor claim that all Obamacare horror stories “are untrue” is the mantra of the Democrats’ scorched-earth campaign to elect Peters and preserve a Democratic Senate.

Those 225,000 folks and family members who lost their coverage also will total about 300,000 plus; and they WON’T forget. Hopefully they vote.

I hope the voters in Michigan remember Gary Peters calling Julie a liar when Election Day rolls around in November.

Obama is counting on her dying, so that his stuff can go ‘forward’ with the ignorant public.

If Julia does die (and I hope she doesn’t as I lost both my parents to cancer), her final revenge should be a videotape of her last moments to be shown on the internet as soon as she passes, and aimed at individual Democrats who voted for Obamacare.

Even from the grave she can destroy these evil leftist bastards. Revenge can be sweet and this poor lady deserves a chance to strike back at those who facilitate her death.

Perhaps she could carry Michigan for the conservatives both in life and in death.

If I were to die because of a govt’s failed policy, I sure as hell would like to take out as many of those responsible for it.

I say this as someone who was “clinically dead” from cardiac arrest. I came back to protect my granddaughter and to fight the reds/Dems for the very soul of our country. Revenge for the treason being practiced on our country today is one of my 24/7 motivating reasons for still being here. I want it sweet and total. Nothing less.

Start with haunting Justice John Roberts. He needs to feel Scrooge had it easy.

...”This should scare even lefty-left-lefties”...

The left-left-lefties would kill and eat their own if it would save their jobs and their elite lifestyle. Anytime I hear someone say they have any kind of conscience or conviction about anything, I cringe..I believe many are into complete narcissism and, worse, could be using God only knows what kind of mind altering drugs. I would support publishing the healthcare conditions requiring prescription drugs used by Congressional leaders and the President. My own Dad had a complete personality change when he was placed on a benzo to control his high blood pressure. He became a “know-it-all” who would not let anyone else talk in a social situation. Before that he was a very quiet individual. Anytime I see someone who feels insulated from consequences for their behavior, I begin to wonder........

Could it be Harry would relish extermination of his political enemies if he could just tell America they are all liars and deserved to die. It seems to me that is what he did to those who are struggling to live and are scared that Obamacare will not give them that chance.

That is the wonderful thing about marxism. You are never held accountable for the expected results of your policies. Instead, the failures are always due to those that are standing in opposition! If it weren’t for those Tea Partiers (or Juden, or Borgouise, etc.) we would certainly have achieved Utopia!

We simply need more time and to eliminate those standing in our way!

And the seals will bark and clap!

I’m not so sure that ghosts get to choose the people whom they haunt. I think you get stuck wherever you were when you died.

Well people also have loved ones and friends. If Obongocare bureaucrats wrong someone, there will be repercussions at some point. So the one who denies care to someone would lead a scary life. If it is 2:30 AM and he hears a noise, is it the neighbor’s dog or is it the son and two friends of a man you denied a hip to? It’s night and your daughter is late in coming home and the phone rings, does she have a flat tire or is it someone holding her hostage to get you to change you decision to go give his mother a new knee or cancer treatment?
