‘Face’ of Obamacare Website Claims She Was Bullied, Image Pulled
In a tearful interview with ABC News, the lady who used to be the ‘face’ on the front page of the Obamacare website at Healthcare.gov discussed how she has been bullied ever since.
After allowing her face to be used on the site, many Americans naturally linked Adriana (last name withheld by ABC News) with Obamacare. So when the reality sunk in that so many people are getting their insurance canceled or premiums raised, some took wrongfully their anger out on her. She’s since been dubbed “the most despised face on the planet” and “glitch girl”.
Adriana mentioned that she signed a release saying her photo could be used for Healthcare.gov promotional materials, but she didn’t seem to realize she would become the poster child for Obamacare with her face on the very front page of the site. It has since been taken down and replaced with a faceless graphic.
For a website that reportedly cost up to $600 million to build and still failed worse than this drunk college girl who blew a .341 on a breathalyzer after trying to storm the field at an Illinois-Iowa game, it is ironic to note that the woman didn’t even get paid for the government to use her picture on the website.
That’s right. Zero. Nada. Zip.
American taxpayers already got screwed out of an insane amount of money to build what could arguably be one of the saddest websites ever created in the history of the Internet (even including something.com), and yet, the government couldn’t even toss a few measly Federal Reserve notes at the lady whose image was plastered all over it?
So, to add insult to injury, now we just look like we’re the kind of country that bails from a fancy restaurant without leaving a tip after making a huge mess and stealing the silverware.
But that isn’t even the ultimate irony about the epic level of hatred that much of America has shown for the Healthcare.gov exchange in regard to Adriana.
The ultimate irony is that the woman who was the ‘face’ of Healthcare.gov was not even a U.S. citizen. That’s right. She’s from Colombia. (Although she can apply for healthcare on Healthcare.gov under her permanent residency status.)
Our country is so messed up.
