Americans for Prospertiy, a conservative tax-exempt organization, has a new 60-second television ad running in Michigan that criticizes Democratic congressman Gary Peters for his vote and continued support of Obamacare. The ad features Michigan citizen Julie Boonstra, who describes how she was diagnosed with leukemia but lost her health insurance coverage this year because of Obamacare's regulations.
"I was doing fairly well fighting the cancer, fighting the leukemia, and then I received a letter. My insurance was canceled because of Obamacare," says Boonstra. "Now, the out-of-pocket costs are so high, it's unaffordable. If I do not receive my medication, I will die. I believed the president. I believed I could keep my health insurance plan. I feel lied to." Watch the ad below:

I'll bet she's white.
Killing a few middle aged white people is a small price to pay to ensure duggies, winos, illegals and BO's people have improved access. It was part of the plan.
If she isn't white, then she's an Uncle Tom or Aunt Juanita to complain about our benevolent emperor and his enabling Privy Council like Peters.

(Obama: Fake black man. Fake Messiah. Fake American. How many fakes can you fit in one Zer0?)
If she had only slept with a few US Congressmen or
converted to Islam, she would have had no problem.
In the USA, under the Tyrant, “laws” depend upon your
religion, skin color, and party affiliation.
Along with her dire medical and financial problems this woman can now expect a visit from the IRS for generating negative news about ObamaCare.

I had a friend’s son in CA die just a few weeks ago directly caused by Obamacare. About 8 months ago he discovered he had a small lump on his stomach. The doctor stated that they could cure him, but had to act fast. I don't know the particulars, but at the time he was on some kind of SSI and/or state insurance since he was out of a job, just the kind of guy that was supposed to be covered by O-care. Instead of covering him, the implementation of O-care was taking place and everything was frozen - even the insurance he had. It took over six months to straiten the insurance coverage out - but by then it was too late. I wonder how many others were killed because of Obamacare?

Boo fricking hoo. We told her obamacare was a scam. We told her obama was lying. We told her all of this was going to happen. She voted for Obamacare anyway. Now she can enjoy it.

She doesn’t actually say that she voted for Obama, but it seems implied. If she did vote for Obama, and she believed him about Obamacare, why is she criticizing Peters?
It doesn’t make sense.

Very unfortunate. I don't understand that. I was on state insurance also, program cancelled at the end of the year, yet authorizations were being issued and claims paid right through Dec. 31st. If his insurance activity was frozen there was a breach of contract. Everything must have gone wrong for him.

(Some things aren't really true but you wouldn't be half surprised if they were.)
She shouldn't feel lied to. She was lied to.
Not sure, but I think it might have been because of the treatment/surgery, or the kind of treatment/surgery the doctor was wanting to give him.

She “feels” lied to? That’s the problem with liberals. They “feel” when they should be seeing what’s right in front of them.

I keep thinking of this quote form the 1987 movie, "The Princess Bride," - "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."
HMmm, Very sad story there. B-( I think there will be a time, if this continues, where people will start to find the administrators who run Obongocare and start to get into their faces as well as harrassing their families too letting them know what a wretch their family members are. It could go much farther, if you are a decision maker and it is 10 PM and your daughter ain't home yet and the phone rings, did her boyfriend's car get a flat or is it Aunt Elsie's nephew demanding you allow treatment or......... You're driving home and you see an old lady with a 1968 Caddy stuck on the side of the road. Does she need help or is it a trap for what you did to her World War II vet husband? It's 2:30 AM and you hear a noise, is it the neighbor's dog or is it a capo and 3 soldiers since you denied Tony Soprano's father a hip replacement?
People are not numbers, they have friends and family who love them and when crossed, they will fight for them and we can see things like this happening. It's like my father said, if you keep beating people down, one day, one of them (or more) will rise up and seek to correct things through the use of applied force.
