Let me make one thing clear before you read this, I am not and have not been in favor of the ACA. It is one of the dumbest things to come from our government. I do not like the idea of having to buy anything or get taxed for it. I know some will pay more and some will pay less. But I wish people would report the facts and not make lies.

Cancer Patient Who Blamed Obamacare For 'Unaffordable' Costs Will Actually Save Money

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/...kusaolp00000592

Americans for Prosperity, the conservative advocacy group backed by the Koch brothers, is running Obamacare attack ads featuring a cancer patient who claimed her treatments were "unaffordable" under the new health care law. On Monday, The Detroit News reported that the patient will actually save more than $1,000 a year.

Julie Boonstra says in the anti-Obamacare ad that she was diagnosed with leukemia five years ago, and her health care plan was canceled when Obamacare went into effect.

"Now, the out-of-pocket costs are so high, it's unaffordable," she said.

Before her plan was canceled, Boonstra was paying a $1,100 monthly premium. That's $13,200 a year, without adding out-of-pocket expenses like co-pays and prescription drugs. But under her new plan, the Blue Cross Premier Gold, Boonstra's premiums are down to $571 a month, and out-of-pocket costs are capped at $5,100. That's a maximum annual expense of $11,952 a year.

According to The Detroit News, Boonstra said it “can’t be true” that her new coverage is cheaper than her old.

“I personally do not believe that,” Boonstra said.

The ads set out to target Rep. Gary Peters (D-Mich.), who faces former Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land (R) in a tight race for Michigan's U.S. Senate seat. Peters voted in favor of the Affordable Care Act.

The billionaire Koch brothers have spent millions in attack ads in Michigan and beyond, prompting Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to take a public stand against their tactics. Reid accused the Kochs of "trying to buy America," and said Republicans are "addicted to Koch."

Boonstra told The Detroit News she had never been politically active before joining the anti-Obamacare campaign. The newspaper reported her ex-husband, Mark Boonstra, had served as chair of the Washtenaw County GOP, and was appointed by Gov. Rick Snyder (R) to the Michigan Court of Appeals in 2012.

So, the Huff Post (a lefty rag newspaper on a par with MSNBC as far as being one of the least reliable news sources in the country), is going to tell a lady she is saving money on her health care while having a debilitating disease, by purchasing ObummerCare.

Its like they are printing words in her mouth.

Psycho might as well find himself a brain somewhere.

From huffypoop's article:

On Monday, The Detroit News reported that the patient will actually save more than $1,000 a year.

Yeaaaah...pigs will fly too.

They didn't say she has her insurance and is saving at the rate of a $1,000 a year.

More of the leftists' lies designed to protect the image of Obama which they value more than real Americans.

I guess you both can not do simple math. Not surprised, you probably blame your poor math skills or reading comprehension on Obama.

Either way, it is still unaffordable. ACA has added volumes of new taxes and regulations! ACA is still getting more money from new taxes and regulations.

PsychoZ, old buddy, you really will believe anything won't you?

That woman doesn't have an insurance policy. That's the "Plan".

This is March. They could written she has already saved "x" amount of dollars so far this year and then project it out for the rest of the year.

Did they actually show her real savings? Nope, they wrote about what will happen.

Hey, contact her and ask how much money she has "banked" in her savings account.

Saving with Obamacare...hahahaha!

Hey, do you buy bridges? I know of some bargains.
