When will people learn the lie that is Obamacare?

ďI was diagnosed with leukemia. I found out I only have a 20 percent chance of surviving. I found this wonderful doctor and a great health care plan. I was doing fairly well fighting the cancer, fighting the leukemia, and then I received a letter. My insurance was canceled because of Obamacare. Now, the out-of-pocket costs are so high, itís 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. Itís heartbreaking for me. Congressman Peters, your decision to vote Obamacare jeopardized my health.Ē

Isn't it time that we learn the truth?

I commented yesterday, for some reason it didn't show up.
I'll try again.
If the numbers given are true, then she really isn't out any more money.
Her former policy had an $1100 per month premium, her new policy has a $570 per month premium, a savings of just over $6360 per year.
Her new policy has a maximum out of pocket expense of $6350.
It's hard for me to believe that her former policy had NO out of pocket expenses. So, why cant she use the money she is saving in monthly premium payments to cover those out of pocket expenses?
Even Megyn Kelly (second link) questioned her on that.
The ad also doesn't mention that Ms. Boonstra was able to keep her current doctor.
I have to admit that the first few times I saw this ad I fell for it.
But after seeing the numbers now I believe that this ad is deceptive and misleading, and I think now that people know the numbers the ad should be pulled.
Ms.Boonstra claims she doesn't have the money for these "out of pocket: expenses", but evidently she doesn't realize that her savings in monthly premiums will cover those expenses.
The people who put this ad out there would have been better off to find someone else that may have had a much different situation.

While I'm no fan of Obamacare, this ad is wrong and misleading to a point.
One of the main purposes of Obamacare was get health insurance for the uninsured, but 99% of those signing up for it are people who have had their policies cancelled, and only 1% of the 7 million people they claim have signed up for it were uninsured. They are just signing up for Medicaid instead.

The TRUTH is that any story relating to an Obamacare horror is a made up line of BS designed to scare people who are lowly educated and easily swayed into a conservative lifestyle.....

More proof from Faux News.....

It's all Obama's fault that this poor victim's insurance premiums were going up and he decided to drop coverage. Same old crap that groups like AFP have been pushing.

Of course it is. If the word Obamacare shows up in the story, there's a 99% chance that its just more bull concocted by Koch Bros / AFP to get all the baggers fired up.

I agree, and just look at this from your link:

"In an interview with the Dexter Leader responding to our column, Boonstra said:ďPeople are asking me for the numbers and I donít know those answers ó thatís the heartbreak of all of this. Itís the uncertainty of not having those numbers that I have an issue with.Ē

She doesn't know the "numbers" but yet she claims she cant afford it.
Why doesn't she just say she's stupid?
Even FOX News tried to point out to her that she was actually saving money on her new plan.

I've always leaned to the conservative side, and I don't like to see any misleading, or deceptive ad's from either side. I think this is an ad that should be removed. The people behind it should have done more research.

I'm not really sure that Gary Peters is really acting correctly either in this instance.
I think instead of suing, and hiring a bunch of lawyers, maybe it would have been better to just explain the numbers and point out the facts.

Holy Cow!

Gville Jimmy is starting to open his eyes to the fact that the right has been lying about the ACA......

The next we know, he might figure out that Obama couldn't do anything about BENGHAZI!

And let's not forget that Dingbat, Batchy, and Edna all refuse to try defending the bagger lie......

Methinks you have no idea what the actual TRUTH is...and certainly can't back up your statement "that any story relating to an obamacare horror" is actually made up.
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/03/12/ne...

Feel free to contact the news media and the person that this story is about and get back to us when they all admit it was a lie and she "made it up". I'll believe your claim when all parties retract their claims...publicly.

Thanks in advance....and good luck.

LOL me thinks your stupid has taken over inside your low informatin bean bagger brain Wiggles.

So you'll believe it was just a made up story with words stuffed in her big mouth by AFP when all parties (Faux, AFP, Bornstupid) retract their claims publicly?

When you going to take your comedy hour on the road? I suppose when you've found a deal on that broke down bus-coach you've dreamed about your entire miserable life?

Inasmuch as the pipester and bob are slinging insults and false comments neither can prove "that any story relating to an obamacare horror" is actually made up.

The real horror is that they actually blindly believe what obama and his cronies, the democraps, are telling them.

PS...just what is a "broke down bus-coach" and what would ever make me want to dream about it?? Sounds like a term the pipester learned from experience.

Its so hard for you to accept isn't it Lame brain that this woman is a born again LIAR and that this ad, like so many others like it that have been floated out there to attract low information viewers/readers like yourself, are nothing more than complete phoney baloney BS lies. This one has been well documented as complete bull Sh*t. Simple math stupid -- try figuring it out. Why should anyone debate low information baggers like you Wiggles? Isn't it akin to trying to reason with a drunk? You'd be better off standing in the corner pissing up a rope. Try it you might actually excel at it.

The pipster didn't even read my link to a COMPLETELY
different woman with a COMPLETELY different story.
Sounds normal...the uninformed commenting on things they have no idea or information about.

Haha...he makes a fool of himself without any help from anyone...

Unfortunately he/they have the right to vote for representation that will keep them as totally uninformed as they are now.
I suppose you are right but hopefully one or two of those uninformed will pay attention and actually do some research and educate themselves before using the losing tactics the pipster thinks are his winning ticket...insults and attempted belittlement using lies and assumptions that have no merit or proof.

Oh well...just sayin'....

Just this one ad Bob.

Obama and the left have been lying about the ACA for years now.
I just think the producers of this ad would have been better off if they had done some research and found someone else.
Benghazi is a totally different subject, and Hillary will have to answer those questions if she decides to run in 2016.
After Benghazi, Hillary refused to testify, and resigned as S.O.S.
Do we want a quitter like that in the White House?
Sarah Palin left her post as Governor of Alaska, to run for vice president.
Hillary Clinton quit her job as Secretary of State because she knew she was a failure and her lack paying attention to the request's for more security in Benghazi led to the death's of four Americans.

No stupid, its not just this one ad. The right wing lunatics have been lying about the ACA since day one. Tell you what Jimbo - just STFU and take your pile b.s. and plant it under your trailer where it belongs.

All of them Jimmy.....

Even you should be able to see the pattern. Poor sick cancer victim loses insurance plan because of Obamacare! Can't keep their doctor because of Obamacare! The only difference so far is that one of them was stupid enough to tell the whole story before her attack ad hit your television screen.

Don't forget the preacher who decided to forego having insurance just before getting run over.... This poor guys premium was going up by 15%.... The Outrage we were all told about.... The man sold everything but his soul to Americans for Prosperity but won't acknowledge that insurance premiums were always going up, or that he made the choice to drop coverage.... Damn Obamacare!

Don't worry, untold hundreds, perhaps thousands of other horror stories will be cropping up on Faux News or in advertisements paid for by AFP by the time the mid-term election get here.... All designed to spread fear to the lowly educated.

BTW, the former beauty queen resigned as the Governor of Alaska in July of 2009..... Even an idiot should know that's eight months after she and McSame lost the election!
