    A beneficiary of President Obama's signature healthcare law standing behind the president during his speech Monday in the Rose Garden nearly fainted toward the end of his remarks. Karmel Allison, who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes according to information provided by the White House, began holding the hand of a woman standing next to her at the event and breathing deeply. Noticing the disruption, Obama halted his remarks to turn around, just as Allison appeared to be falling backward. Another event attendee braced her from behind while the president held her arm to prevent her from falling. A White...
  • At the White House: Obamacare success stories that aren't

    President Obama invited a number of people to stand behind him as he delivered his speech on the state of Obamacare at the White House Monday morning. One of them, Janice Baker, a small business owner from Delaware, introduced the president, and Obama spoke of Baker and the others gathered there as people who have benefited from Obamacare. But after reading the White House-provided descriptions of each of those behind the president, it's clear the administration was stretching to present people who, beyond supporting Obamacare, have actually gained from it in any tangible way. For example, a Pennsylvania man named...

    When President Barack Obama defended his foundering health insurance overhaul Monday in a carefully staged and scripted White House pep rally, thirteen people stood behind him as examples of Americans whom the 'Obamacare' law would help. But according to their biographies, just three have actually enrolled in the plans offered in their states. They include the state of Delaware's first Obamacare insurance participant – and, so far, its only one – along with a Tennessee woman who enrolled less than a day before the press event, and a Washington, D.C. man that the Obama White House has used on two...

    I know what you’re thinking: it’s the perfect allegory, right? Woman falls ill, “Big Healthcare.Gov” is there to catch her as she’s falling. Oh, and BTW, her name is “Karmel” – how perfect is that!! Not too dark, not too light: just right! A little too perfect, say the usual critics (Tea Party Anarchists). They’re off, spinning their usual, unfounded, conspiracy theories. You know how they plot their little scenarios by now: they’ll claim that BO’s Big Brains and otherwise useful idiots advisors wrote the fake faint right into the script so Barry can come to her aid. As they...

    ObamaCare enrollees to join president in Rose Garden (Video) By Justin Sink - 10/20/13 05:12 PM ET President Obama "will directly address the technical problems" with the ObamaCare website during a Rose Garden event Monday morning, according to a White House official. The president will discuss work continuing "around the clock" to improve the website, which has been plagued by problems since its launch earlier this month. According to the White House official, the president and his team find those troubles "unacceptable." The official said the president will be joined by "consumers, small business owners, and pharmacists," including individuals who...

    President Barack Obama helped a pregnant woman who began to faint during his speech about health care reforms today, joking 'That's what happens when I talk too long.' Mr Obama reached out to catch prospective Affordable Care Act beneficiary Karmel Allison who was standing directly behind him as he discussed the glitches of the new healthcare website in the Rose Garden of the White House. Around 25 minutes into the speech, Ms Allison became unsteady and started to lose consciousness. At that point, the President turned around and helped catch her before she actually fainted. 'I got you. You're OK,'...

    I researched the fainting lady Karmel Allison. She is listed by the White house as “prospective ACA beneficiary.” “Karmel Allison was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when she was nine years old,” a White House description read. “She has stayed on the same insurance ever since, despite constantly rising costs, for fear she would not be able to find a plan that would cover her due to her pre-existing condition. Allison recently began researching her options on CoveredCA and has publically described her experience as finally feeling equal to others, including her young and healthy husband, when it comes to...
