  • LOL! Someone was going to say it eventually....







    And the comments at the New York Magazine article are a hoot. One person's description of what the new icons mean:

    point at your old timey phone, watch TV, write a letter, have a 3-way.
    Bask in the warmth of the Deep South
    No one will be denied:
    Big law suits and bathroom toots;
    We're all getting Dixie-fried.
    But somewhere Hank and Lefty
    Are rollin' in their graves
    While kudzu vines grow over signs that read "Jesus Saves."

      And to think I was laughed at when I said that the government is incompetent and can't manage healthcare.

      These idiots can't even make a website with $600 Million!

        Maybe they are Filipino.
        Lots of them have Mexican sounding names.
        Easy mistake to make.
        We are so fucked.

          Anonymous Obamacare Girl is no longer anonymous.


          One of the big mysteries surrounding the launch of Healthcare.gov (aside from "why would anyone launch a website that is so completely and obviously broken?") was the identity of the mystery girl on the front page. Before her photo was taken down, her smile became synonymous with the implosion of the ACA rollout. Yet no one knew who she was. ...Until now.

          The Obamacare cover model has been found, and she's not exactly thrilled with the whole fiasco. According ABC News, she's been the victim of "cyber bullying" from people who apparently have way to much free time on their hands.
          "They have nothing else to do but hide behind the computer. They're cyber bullying. I'm here to stand up for myself and defend myself and let people know the truth."

          The truth is, she volunteered to let the administration use her photo, but never knew how prominent it would be. The fact that she's become so closely associated with one of the most spectacular federal tech failures in history was not part of the plan.

          [....]

          When her information began to surface it carreid with it rumors that she was in the country illegally. It's not true. She's here legally; she just isn't a U.S. citizen yet.
          Speculation swirled that Adriana might not be a legal resident of the United States, and therefore not even eligible for the health care exchanges. Adriana said she is a wife and mother who lives in Maryland with her 21-month-old son and husband of six and a half years. Her husband is a U.S. citizen, as is his her son. Adriana, who is Colombian, said she has lived legally in the U.S. for more than six years, is currently a permanent resident and is applying for citizenship.

          Good for her and, since she's come to the United States legally, she should be welcomed with open arms. All of this means she's eligible to enroll. Since she was the original face of the program, she's obviously done so, right? Well...

          [....]

          That people are wasting their time bothering this woman is absolutely ridiculous. Like she says, it's not her fault that Obamacare is such an abject failure. Please, leave her alone and focus your attention on the administration that gave you a non-functional website in an effort to sell their unsustainable health care flim-flam.

          That said, the Healthcare.gov designers were pretty astute when they chose a cover model who's a non-citizen that hasn't enrolled and isn't getting paid.

          That’s the perfect symbol for the Obama Presidency.
          LOL! Yep!

            They really should leave her alone. She was simply a model.

              I didn't even know this was a thing.

              The world passes me by, sometimes. Thank God.

                I completely agree that she should be left alone. At the same time, if she can parlay this into something to her advantage, then more power to her, AFAIC: there are rumors that she's been offered a couple of cameo spots on some TV shows. Good for her if she takes them and maybe makes something out of it. She's a very attractive an photogenic young woman.
