Cancer Patient Who Lost Insurance Due to Obamacare Demands Apology from Harry Reid

On Wednesday, Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) took to the Senate floor where he insisted that all of the “horror stories” involving the Affordable Care Act’s implementation were “untrue.” One of those supposed lies that Reid singled out was the story of Julie Boonstra, a Michigan-based cancer patient who appeared in an Americans for Prosperity ad after she claims she lost her insurance due to the ACA.

On Thursday, Boonstra appeared on Fox News Radio with host John Gibson where she demanded that Reid apologize for impugning her character.

“I hear the story last night,” Boonstra told Gibson. “I demand an apology from Senator Harry Reid. I absolutely demand an apology.”

“He is saying, in my opinion, that I am a liar and that the people who have come forth who have had, you know, a negative outcome due to Obamacare, that we are liars and we are telling tales, our stories are untrue,” she continued. “That’s not the case.”

“Obamacare – it drastically has affected my life,” Boonstra concluded. “I believed the president when he said that if I had a health care plan that I liked, I could keep it. That was the lie.”
