This anti-Obamacare ad produced by the Koch Brothers’ Americans for Prosperity group is a complete lie.
The Detroit News checked out Boonstra’s horror story and discovered that she will save a significant amount of money under Obamacare, not spend more.
Boonstra’s old plan cost $1,100 a month in premiums or $13,200 a year, she previously told The News. It didn’t include money she spent on co-pays, prescription drugs and other out-of-pocket expenses.
By contrast, the Blues’ plan premium costs $571 a month or $6,852 for the year. Since out-of-pocket costs are capped at $5,100, including deductibles, the maximum Boonstra would pay this year for all of her cancer treatment is $11,952.
When advised of the details of her Blues’ plan, Boonstra said the idea that it would be cheaper “can’t be true.”
“I personally do not believe that,” Boonstra said.
‘That can’t be true. I don’t believe that.’
This is what Obama Derangement Syndrome (ODS) looks like.
Of course Americans for Prosperity could have verified this themselves and informed Julie Boonstra that she will save money, but they either chose not to or they chose to lie about it.
Either way, their handiwork means people who were duped by their false ad may go without coverage under false pretense. People will suffer because they’re liars.
