Democrats’ latest target: Michigan cancer patient Julie Boonstra. Boonstra says attacks by Democratic Senate candidate Gary Peters’s campaign against her new Obamacare TV ad will not silence her.
“I’m very upset with them for trying to stop my ad,” Boonstra told Fox News. “They’re not scaring me. Cancer scares me. The growth of my cancer, possibly losing my life over this, that scares me. I battle cancer every day. They’re not going to intimidate me.”
Lawyers for Michigan Democratic Senate candidate Gary Peters sent TV stations a letter threatening that failure to rip down the ad, sponsored by Americans for Prosperity, could result in the revocation of their broadcasting license. The letter, which cites a Washington Post fact-check on the ad that gave it two “Pinocchios,” warned broadcasters, “Failure to prevent the airing of ‘false and misleading advertising’ may be ‘probative of an underlying abdication of licensee responsibility’ that can be cause for the loss of a station’s license.”
Democrats’ attacks on Obamacare victims have escalated in recent weeks, as the unpopular healthcare program has raised Democratic candidates’ fears heading into the November midterm elections. On Sunday, progressive New York Times columnist Paul Krugman published a blog article titled “Health Care Horror Hooey,” wherein Krugman blasted Obamacare victims, stating that “the true losers from Obamacare generally aren’t very sympathetic.”
Similarly, progressive publications like Mother Jones and the Los Angeles Times have attacked Obamacare cancer patients’ stories in pieces with titles like “Maybe There Are No Genuine Obamacare Horror Stories” and “Has Anyone in America Actually Been Harmed By Obamacare?”
Curiously, the mainstream media have been less inclined to investigate the claims of Obamacare “success” stories touted by President Barack Obama’s campaign-turned-advocacy group, Organizing for Action. As Breitbart News revealed, an NBC News report highlighting a happy Obamacare customer failed to mention that the “average citizen” it profiled was actually a Democratic political candidate and Obama campaign worker. In another example, OFA touted the story of “Avram Friedman.” What it failed to mention was that Friedman was a Democratic candidate and activist who describes himself as a “highly seasoned grassroots political organizer.”
Still, with Obamacare’s approval rating now down to just 39%, Democrats appear to have made the risky political decision to attack individual Americans.
Whether Democratic attacks against Obamacare lupus and cancer victims will prove a winning strategy come election time will be known in just 253 days, when Americans head to the polls to vote.
Keep this out there Robin. This is ridiculous. People are not seeing the 'other side' of Obamacare enough; and to think that Democrats are targeting Cancer patients as 'hooey' is beyond the pale.. . .
I will do that! It affects me personally. Husband has NHL! Not just for that reason, but, for everyone else! Any of us can come down with a horrible desease!
Clearly, this is a victory for the progressive left, the wunder-state and those of hive-mentality everywhere.
Thanks for keeping up with this, Robin. There are more and more stories coming out all the time, and it's only going to get worse!
If people getting 2 Pinocchios should get shut down, then Obama who gets four Pinocchios should be in jail.
My real take on this is .... if a citizen sees a problem, then there is a problem. This lady clearly liked what she had before and does not like what she had now. She was also promised that if she could like her plan she could keep it. To argue against this woman is to argue against simple logic and also free speech.
The "Mother Jones" web site is a lie all by itself. If you believe in 100% abortion, then one could never be a mother.
Anyone with a brain (that lets out Obama and his supporters) would think that some targets will just make them look bad - such as targeting -
