Obamacare girl, the woman who was the face of the website until she suddenly disappeared, is not a U.S. citizen. Since the Obamacare website launched, just to sink almost immediately with all types of glitches, folks wanted to know who the Obamacare girl is.
Did putting a non-U.S. citizen on the Obamacare website add insult to injury to the American people regarding this plan? The woman is legally in the U.S. and her son was born in this country, so maybe she represents the face of Obamacare better than most?
Obamacare has a surprise around every corner, starting out as a website that cannot support the masses it is trying to attract. Next was the broken promises that folks can keep their own insurance. With the millions upon millions of people that the website could have picked as the face of Obamacare, they picked someone who is a citizen of another country? What will spring up next?
Apparently the folks at ABC News set out to find out to find the identity of the woman being called the face of Obamacare. She is a married mother of one from Colombia, but not a U.S. citizen. Her name is Adriana and ABC News withheld her last name. She has lived in the U.S. for the last six years with her husband and now she has a 21-month old son.
Adriana said she never set out to be the face of Obamacare, she just went to the photographer for free family portraits. She contacted someone she knew at the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services and she was told a photo shoot would be arranged if the portraits could be used to promote Obamacare.
Now that Adriana appeared on the Obamacare website she feels people hate her. She also became the unintentional spokes model for ACA, which came along with verbal abuse and cyberbullying. Adriana told ABC News during their interview, "I mean, I don't know why people should hate me because it's just a photo. I didn't design the website. I didn't make it fail, so I don't think they should have any reasons to hate me."
Adriana doesn’t have an opinion on Obamacare and she’s not planning to sign up anytime soon.
