    Exclusive: Obamacare's Mystery Woman Says She Fell Victim to Cyberbullies

    The smiling woman who was once the face of the Affordable Care Act's website has come out of the shadows to stand up to the "cyberbullying" she says she suffered after the law's flawed kickoff.
    Only a cowardly piece of scum would threaten this woman.... But wait.... Was she threatened and bullied? Actually, she was not. She was just made fun of. Guess what else? Nobody knew who she was either, other than a symbol. Nothing more, and nothing personal. Nobody sent her threatening emails. Nobody posted in social media that she was a whore, drug user, or otherwise engaged in any activities that would smear her. All people did was to make fun of her because she was a symbol of a program that they do not much care for. When she volunteered to become a symbol of Obamacare, her picture became a public figure, and rightly or wrongly, opened her up to ridicule from those who do not like the program that she is a symbol for.

    What is cyberbullying? I would say that the teenaged girl who committed suicide because she was constantly threatened with harm by her school mates was being bullied. As for THIS lady? I am really broken up about her feelings being hurt...... NOT!! Cyberbullying? I call BS on that. If she wants to be seen as a symbol by the public, then she had better either grow a thicker skin, or just get the hell out of the kitchen.

    WTF???

    She isn't responsible for the law or the web site!!!

    Did I hear that she isn't a US Citizen but is a legal resident? What a way to treat people trying to make a better life for themselves.

    Unless some of her 'friends' from Facebook or real life recognized her, I don't know how she could be directly confronted.

    If she's not a US citizen, screw her!

    Frankly, I'm surprised she was an actual woman rather than a computer generated image.

    If the Obamacare web designers tried to computer generate the image of a woman chances are there's would have been a picture of a Turnip on the Obamacare homepage.

    Think about that just a second; she's a legal resident. Unlike the tens of millions of Illegal Aliens, she's following the law, and should be protected by the law from these attacks.

    I often doubt the legitimacy of people who claim to be (insert political label) then play the stereotype for effect.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    My cousin (by marriage,) mentioned on her facebook page that she successfully enrolled in one of the insurance exchanges and got better insurance than she had for a lesser price. She says she has been getting all kinds of nastygrams since.

    Imagine all the egg on the faces of all the naysayers if this thing turns out to be good.

    I had an old timer come in my office yesterday and he told me that the same thing happened back when Social Security was introduced.

    This too, shall pass.
