Cancer Patient Fights Back After Dem Suggests She Lied in ObamaCare Ad

As seen on Fox and Friends

A Michigan mother battling leukemia is now being called a liar by a Democratic lawmaker after voicing her concerns about ObamaCare in a TV ad.


WATCH: Dems LOL at Question on ObamaCare Premiums


Julie Boonstra claims that her insurance was cancelled because of the Affordable Care Act. She said the out of pocket costs are unaffordable, and if she doesn’t receive her medicine, she will die.

At the end of the ad, Boonstra says that Congressman Gary Peters’ (D-MI) vote for President Obama jeopardized her health.

Rep. Peters’ lawyer wrote in a letter to a TV station that ran the ad: “You have an obligation ‘to protect the public from false, misleading or deceptive advertising.’ Failure to prevent the airing of false and misleading advertising may be probative of an underlying abdication licensee responsibility that can be cause for the loss of a station’s license.”

This morning on Fox and Friends, Boonstra said her new plan costs less, but she cannot afford the thousands of dollars needed to cover possible out of pocket costs.

Steve Doocy asked Boonstra if she is lying about her situation, as the congressman is alleging. 

“I am not lying, Steve,” she said. “I lost my health care plan due to the implementation of ObamaCare, and I do not have $5,000 or $6,000 dollars in the bank.”
