A young woman nearly fainted at President Obama’s press event this morning at the White House to discuss the problems with the Obamacare exchange Web site, and to talk about some of the people who have already been helped by the Affordable Care Act exchanges.
But the rightwing is outraged. They calling the woman a plant, and claim her fainting spell was planned in advance.
And that would be really bad, faking a story to advance your own partisan ideological agenda on Obamacare.
Oh yeah, this kind:
The young woman’s name is Karmel Allison and she has diabetes. She tweeted after the event:
I’m ok world- just got a little lightheaded.Thanks, @BarackObama for catching me! And good thing, this pregnant diabetic is pregnant :)
