UPDATEDx2: Koch brothers’ fake “Obamacare victim” Julie Boonstra made to look even more foolish and exploited

“It can’t be true…I personally do not believe that.” My home town of Dexter has been in the national news a bit lately. It started when Congressman Tim “the Original Tea Partier” Walberg invited a resident of our Stars Hollow-like village, Julie Boonstra, to be his guest at President Obama’s State of the Union address as a “victim of Obamacare”.

By joining an anti-ACA lawsuit, Michigan panders to Tea Party extremists at the expense of the middle class.

Republicans maintain a laser-like focus on Obamacare misinformation campaign

GOP Congressmen Walberg and Bentivolio are so busy trying to discredit the ACA, how can they have time for anything else? How many Obamacare “horror stories” have to be debunked for people to realize that the GOP spin machine is pedaling so hard it’s about ready to rotate off its axis?

Terri Lynn Land’s Obamacare Derangement syndrome goes off the rails: “Obamacare causes higher car insurance rates”

Aye, aye, aye… The other day I wrote about GOP Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land’s raging case of Obamacare Derangement Syndrome. Buried in the list of tweets was one that really stands out as comically laughable and proof positive that this woman has no business running for national office: Yep.

Obamacare Derangement Syndrome causes Terri Lynn Land to attack Michigan GOP over Medicaid expansion

Obamacare Derangement Syndrome causes Terri Lynn Land to attack Michigan GOP over Medicaid expansion

Comprehension fail much? The National Republican Senate Committee (NRSC) and Terri Lynn Land are so eager to continue to beat the anti-Affordable Care Act drum that they appear to have lost all ability to distinguish between it and any other discussion about health care. This was made comically clear over the past two days following an appearance by U.S. Department […]

Many Americans don’t realize how affordable health insurance is now

Educating people about available tax subsidies and Medicaid enrollment are top healthcare reform priorities right now. By the end of December, more than 6 million Americans had enrolled in a health insurance plan under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), either buying private insurance or signing up for Medicaid in a state that agreed to expand the program.
