Benefit from Superb Weight Loss Results Pointers
Now that Americans for Prosperity (AFP), considered a Koch brothers-funded right-wing front group, has sponsored at least one TV commercial in Michigan, where cancer patient Julie Boonstra claimed to have lost her insurance due to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Her short AFP-funded ad hit all the talking points: Obama lied (nothing new there), she lost her good plan and couldn’t find a comparable replacement, and now she’s concerned about living or dying since she can’t afford the new plan. She also publicly blasted her congressional representative, now running for senator, Gary Peters, for voting in approval of Obamacare and “threatening her health.” Julie came across as a decent, earnest soccer-mom type with leukemia. Good emotional ad, but the devil’s in the details, and Julie missed a couple, which unfortunately left her and the AFP wide open for attack from hardcore Democrats. One source criticizes the ad without the usual oppositional party rancor. “The Fact Checker,” a Washington Post column, did a thorough analysis to determine that, if Julie had really tried hard and were more thorough, there was indeed a plan that would have worked to handle all needs. The columnist recognized her angst as a cancer patient trying to figure out a complicated system, so he gave her story a “two Pinocchios” rating. He’s given Obama four Pinocchios, the highest lie ranking, on more than one occasion. So he’s not just a party man. Both political sides have sponsored ads, with the Democrats showing happy new Obamacare customers and Republicans showing disgruntled Obamacare castoffs. And both have had factual reasons to attack the other side’s TV ad campaigns.
