You know that your website is really bad when the person in the stock photo on it doesn’t want her last name to be used. That’s the case for Adriana, a Colombian woman who for some reason ended up as the face of ObamaCare and is now crying on television about it.
Adriana, who asked that only her first name be used, said she was speaking out now to defend herself after weeks of enduring online lampooning.
“I’m here to stand up for myself and defend myself and let people know the truth,” she said.
And the truth is that she wants nothing to do with ObamaCare. But like most people interested in ObamaCare, she showed up for the free stuff.
Seeking free family photographs, Adriana emailed a contact at the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the agency responsible for the Affordable Care Act’s rollout, about having photos of her and her family taken in exchange for allowing the photos to be used to market the new health care law. She was never paid.
She said that while she knew her photo would be used on the healthcare.gov website, she was stunned at the negative reception.
“They took the picture down. I wanted the picture down, and they wanted the picture down. I don’t think anybody wanted to focus on the picture.
Sometimes free stuff from the government can turn out to be surprisingly expensive. Whether it’s free photos or anything else.
Adriana is not a citizen, but still eligible for ObamaCare… but has no plans to sign up for it. When you can’t even get the face of ObamaCare to sign up for ObamaCare…
