162. For-Profit insurance tool Shona Holmes is a FRAUD.
LSS, Ms. Holmes, a Canadian citizen, had supposedly a "life-threatening" tumor that was ruining her vision and needed it removed. Rather than go to the Canadian doctors, she went to a US Mayo Clinic and had it removed right away. Therefore, according to the hit-piece ad, this means the Canadian health care system sucks and such a system would surely be "the Death of the US as we know it!"

Or is it all a buncha hooey?

It appears not only were these ads funded by Americans for Prosperity and Patients first (both Right Wing "Red Menace"-peddling organizations), but Shona's story and background is questionable as well . . . It appears her problem wasn't really life threatening and she's pushed for a Privitization of Canada's health care with conservative groups there. Read on . . .
