Read more carefully. The GOP is using her as another Obongocare horror story.

Lots of different species of pond scum are involved here.

Stop trying to silence us by identifying out our lies!

Sheldon Silver and Dean Skelos laugh at what subby considers pond-scum behavior, then resume talks over which committee chair gets to have that one leggy redhead from Vassar as their next concubine legislative intern, and which one gets the kinda-80's-bighaired but with-an-ass-that-won't-quit girl from Hofstra.

From the WaPo fact checker piece:
Meanwhile, Boonstra told The Detroit News that her monthly premiums were cut in half, from $1,100 a month to $571. That's a savings of $529 a month. Over the course of a year, the premium savings amounts to $6,348-just two dollars shy of the out-of-pocket maximum.

So you know, history's greatest monster and all that
 
2014-02-23 10:21:59 AM
Yeah, this has been debunked already.  Just another "but it sounds so good" propaganda piece.

Americans for Prosperity: We must destroy Obamacare because it didn't work perfectly on day one, but thirty-five years of trickle-down economics isn't enough time to be effective.

Isn't this a repeat?

Your blog sucks, subby.
 
2014-02-23 10:44:25 AM
Your blog wouldn't suck quite as much if you used black text on a white background, subby.

But it would still suck big time.

Oh, Americans for Prosperity is crying because they're being called out on their lies... again...

Color me shocked.

IMDWalrus: The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: Isn't this a repeat?

Yep.  And it was already debunked in the last thread.


Eh.  Republicans and their trolls repeat lies all the time.  Why not repeat the pointing out of their lies?
 
2014-02-23 10:53:08 AM
Media organizations investigating the ad's claims note that Boonstra was able to find comparable new insurance under the law

If somebody tells lies, especially when those lies are used to attack something like getting people insurance who would otherwise be unable to obtain it, then yes sue her into oblivion, cancer or not.

Well, I was going to post something along the lines of "BSABSVR" or "Meh, he's *our* pond scum so it's cool", but now all I can think about is leggy redhead interns.

Right Angle Press:  We Don't Just Report the News, We Report it Right

Well, At least they have their bias right out in the open.  Not that it isn't blatantly obvious from the bullshiat article.

Has anyone pointed out how this blog sucks yet?
 
2014-02-23 10:58:32 AM
First, the 'silenced' party is just upset that when she lied on behalf of a conservative PAC, the democrat she was lying about said she was lying.  Sorry, but this seems like another conservative complaining when they've started the fight, and seem to believe that reality has a liberal bias.

Second, how the hell did this get greenlit?  You blog sucks subby; thirded.

OMG! The evil democrats accused some poor woman dying of cancer of lying! It's a new low!

Ignore the fact that she was actually lying. Having cancer means you get to lie with impunity.

Gunther: Having cancer means you get to lie with impunity.


I hate to suggest it, but it's making me wonder if she's been lying about that, too.

I love how she says she won't know what the costs are when she was interviewed in the WaPo article. Thing is, she has her plan, she's paying premiums, so there should be no questions about what she is paying...

She just hates obamacare "because"
 
2014-02-23 11:12:45 AM
Why would you sue to silence a lying opponent.

Run your own ad to set the facts straight.

Obama saved this woman and millions of others from themselves and their bad insurance choices. We can only hope they will impose their wisdom on other areas of our lives.
 
2014-02-23 11:13:13 AM
Another day, another 0bamascare boy leukemia lady who cried wolf. Senate candidate is silencing her by refusing to talk to her when she stalks his home residence.
 
2014-02-23 11:13:56 AM
Yes this is a great example of shiatty state politicians, not GOP legislatures tweaking election laws to make it harder for certain people to vote, gerrymandering Congress, or gutting regulations leading to contaminated rivers and fertilizer factories blowing up whole towns. Nope this Obamacare story is the real face of corrupt state legislators.
 
2014-02-23 11:15:19 AM
Guys, guys! Don't you GET it?! Obummercare is of the devil! It's evil! Because reasons!
 
2014-02-23 11:16:02 AM
Apart from "going after television stations airing ads in which her story is featured, threatening their licenses" and not answering the door, what did Peters do to silence this woman?

And then, demonstrate he is threatening the license of tv stations. When was the last time a license was revoked? And tell me about the huge First Amendment protest that would be made had such a threat been made.

So without further proof I find that hard to believe.

I do believe he may not have answered the door when she walked up without an appointment.

The first lie is that they're going to sue her personally.
What happened is that they sent a letter to a TV station asking that they pull the ad (paid for by "Americans for Prosperity") for being misleading.

Yeah more stories need to get out- for instance Obamacare left wet towels on the floor, put dirty dishes in the clear dishwasher, and didn't replace the TP.

This is socialism & we shouldn't stand for it

Wrong account?   Usually you're pretty happy to defend troll stories like this to the death.

"fact-checkers claim, the uncertainty of having to restructure her health care while coping with a deadly disease is damage enough. "

I feel bad for the lady but if she has anyone to blame for the stress/paranoia over Obamacare, she should blame the GOP.  If it actually does screw her over, she should blame the DNC.
 
2014-02-23 03:06:49 PM
to be fair, she does sound like a biatch

Yep. Pretty much how I expected him to look like, except for the absence of blood-dripping fangs or a small tear in his rubber human mask, revealing the demonic skin underneath.
