    "This emotional and gut-wrenching attack ad should be every Democrat's worst nightmare, combining references to President Obama's 4-Pinocchio promise (PolitiFact's "Lie of the Year") with a raw account of a woman who says she suffered because of the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a.

    Obamacare.



    But do the facts match the emotions?



    First of all, many viewers might think Boonstra lost her doctor, as she mentions her "wonderful doctor" and then says her plan was canceled.

    But AFP confirms that she was able to find a plan, via Blue Cross Blue Shield, that had her doctor in its network.



    Local news reports recount that Boonstra, like many Americans, initially had trouble getting a plan because of the botched launch of healthcare.gov.

    No doubt that was a difficult experience.

    She then was invited by her local member of Congress to attend the State of the Union address and participated in a Republican National Committee news conference that highlighted problems with Obamacare's stumbling launch."* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.
