BUSTED: Ad praising Obamacare another provable lie

When it comes to propaganda, the Obama administration just can’t seem to get it right.

A new ad of woman who credits Obamacare with saving her life omits the fact that she already had health coverage before enrolling in President Obama’s signature healthcare plan, the National Review reported this week.

“For 20 years, I was afraid — afraid of getting sick and having no health insurance,” Julie Adams of Nashville, Tenn., says in the ad. “But when I got cancer, I finally had a health plan I could afford. . . . I’ll always remember how affordable health care saved my life.”

The group that produced the ad was aware Adams had purchased private coverage, but seemed to dismiss that inconvenient truth by saying the plan “was too expensive for her to keep long-term.”

According to the National Review, Adams posted a message on Facebook in March of 2013 that said: “What a relief! I waited forever because I didn’t have health insurance until this year. Thank you Obama.”

There’s one small problem — the Affordable Health Care, as Obamacare is sometimes known, didn’t start offering benefits until 2014.

Phil Kerpen, a free-market policy analyst with American Commitment, called out the media for failing to recognizing this.

“The liberal political activist in the ad claiming she was uninsured until Obamacare saved her life actually bought a private plan a year before Obamacare started,” Kerpen told the National Review.

“And the same media ‘fact checkers’ who viciously attacked cancer patients who spoke out against Obamacare didn’t even bother to question it.”

Hard to believe, isn’t it?
