Cancer, Obamacare Victim at Center of Political Storm

Julie Boonstra, a cancer patient who was kicked of off her health plan due to Obamacare, lashed out at Rep. Gary Peters (D., Mich.) on Saturday after lawyers for his campaign demanded that Michigan broadcasters cease airing ads featuring her story.

Boonstra, a Michigan resident, was diagnosed with leukemia five years ago. She was recently kicked off of her healthcare plan due to regulations passed as part of President Barack Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which Peters voted in favor of.

After relating her story publicly in an ad produced by the advocacy group Americans for Prosperity (AFP), Peters dispatched lawyers to prevent the spot from running on local television stations.

Boonstra, who says she is now struggling to pay out of pocket for her rising healthcare costs, told the Washington Free Beacon she is stunned by Peters’ efforts to censor her story.

I hope she sues that SOB

Voters need to remember this. Everyone who lied and voted for Obamacare should be voted out of office. These bed wetter care more about a baitfish in California than human beings. To use their own philosophy, we only have a finite amount of rights, for each one they take that is less we have, soon we will have none.

Well you have too many low information voters out there that believe all the bull. You have people who believe Socialism is a good thing but know little about the differences between North and South Korea. People just don't think anymore.  No one wants to get involved anymore, and the few that stand up for what is right are labeled nutcases.

The same goes for this health reform, it had to be approved before you knew what was in it. There were many health professional telling anyone who would listen, it would be horrible. That tells you alot right there. We can't depend on the government to run anything especially healthcare. When will people wake up?  Do they have to  lose everything, or just run out of someone else's money! Wake up America!

Please - Send this to EVERYONE you know. Lets give it some LEGS and see if we can't start it running accross the country.    Make It VIRAL

Marxist Care.

I hear this kind of thing everyday now.

Typical libotard demorot politician.  It is not him that suffers so he must silence those who are hurt to keep his office.  May he meet al queda in hell.

Really, why? He's a Democrat. You get what you voted for and once their "promises" no longer favor them, they have no problem kicking you to the curb to die. You really don't have any reason to be mad, I mean what did you expect would happen when not one Democrat ever having read that twenty seven hundred piece of legislation, but felt they could make promises as idiots won't find out they were just screwed until after elections.



Had you idiots actually listened to Republicans who had warned, warned and kept warning you that bull crap like this would happen. But no, you sanctimonious liberals thought you were better then everyone else and legislative negligence couldn't possibly take place with liberal promises.



Here's a lesson most conservatives already understand, nothing in life is free. Not one thing. And this may sound harsh, but you contributed to your own misery and can't blame some politician whom you trusted to keep your best interest at heart. Democrats don't care about anyone and they'll screw everybody to get their way, they're Democrats.

SOUNDS AS THOUGH PETERS IS JUST ANOTHER OBUMMEROCRAP "SHEEPLE"!  I TRULY HOPE THAT WHOEVER OPPOSES HIM IN THE UPCOMING ELECTION, JUST BUSTS HIS ASS TO PIECES!!!

Peters and all his "dirt bag, scum lawyers all should be lined up and shot for treason against this poor woman.  Obama and his minions just can not stand for these kinds of reports to see the light of day.  We must shine the light brighter and brighter everyday!

Hope there is not one to help Obama when he get his lung cancer.  His girls will suffer from his second hand smoke but I'm not too sure that even makes a difference to him.  He is one cold blooded muslim.

Obama will never suffer or lack for treatment because he's one of the the Establishment "Elite."

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
