Woman from 'Obamacare' political ad learns ACA will help her, will deny it to the grave
March 20, 2014 - Chris Tomassucci
Have you seen that political ad? The one featuring that poor Michigan woman with cancer who might actually die from Obamacare?
The ad features Julie Boonstra, an actual Michigan resident (who was, incidentally, married to a Republican county chairman at one time).
Boonstra looks longingly into the camera and talks about the awesome health insurance she had. . .until Obamacare came along and took it from her! The new plan she is forced to get is way worse and will likely kill her, the ad implies.
Well, as is often the case with ads like this (at both ends of the political spectrum) when someone did a little digging, it turns out Boonstra will in fact benefit from Obamacare! Can you believe it?
Yeah, she can't either! And still doesn't, even after seeing the evidence (AKA: her better, more affordable health insurance plan through Obamacare).
From the Detroit News:
Boonstra was of course overjoyed to learn of the savings. Not really though, she is actually still in denial about it now.
Again from the Detroit News:
