Woman nearly faints during ObamaCare speech – Is she covered?

President Obama Catches Fainting Woman During Obamacare Speech

Via White House Press Corps:
The woman who nearly/briefly fainted during President Obama’s health care speech today has been identified by the White House as Karmel Allison.

She recovered and walked away as the audience applauded.

Per an earlier WH description of people who stood with POTUS, Allison is a “prospective ACA beneficiary.”

Karmel, wearing a red dress, got wobbly toward the end of Obama’s lengthy speech and was assisted by others standing with POTUS. The president stopped his speech to turn to her, as aides came over to help.

“there you go, you are ok.  I’m right here.  I got you.”, “No, no — you’re okay.  This happens when I talk too long.”

She later wrote on Twitter:


Allison is from San Diego, according to her Twitter page.
