Obamacare Girl was the face on this amazing great website, healthcare.gov. Her smile never broke down. She was telling you "Don't Worry! Be Happy!"
Sadly without any explanation Obamacare Girl vanished with her smile without saying "Good Buy" on your new improved healthcare plan.

I shall miss you Obamacare Girl. Stay safe and covered.

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.

Speaking exclusively to ABC News, 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.

"They have nothing else to do but hide behind the computer. They're cyberbullying," Adriana told ABC News' Amy Robach.

"I'm here to stand up for myself and defend myself and let people know the truth," she said.

On Oct. 1, 2013, when the ACA's website launched to enroll Americans in health insurance through federally run exchanges, it was Adriana's face that greeted them.

Dubbed the "enigmatic Mona Lisa of health care," her face was soon mocked, Photoshoped, altered. She became the subject of late-night jokes, partisan hatred and intense speculation.

The saga of the photo started innocuously enough. 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 learned over the summer that her photo would be on healthcare.gov's main page, but she didn't realize it would become so closely associated with the problems of the glitchy website.

"I mean, I don't know why people should hate me because it's just a photo. I didn't design the website. I didn't make it fail, so I don't think they should have any reasons to hate me," Adriana told ABC News.

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.

Though she is eligible for healthcare through the ACA, Adriana says she hasn't signed up for it, and is neither in favor nor against it.

She said that while she knew her photo would be used on the healthcare.gov website, she was stunned at the negative reception.

"Like I said it was shocking. It was upsetting. It was sad. We were having a hard day when we read all this," she said. "And in a way, I'm glad that my son is not old enough to understand, because you know whatever happens to you, it hurts them too."

About two weeks ago, her photo was removed from the site and replaced by several icons. "That was a relief," she said.

"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."

Fucks sake, don't these morons know anything about block functions? I'm sick of these dumbasses going on the internet and then complaining about something that is easily fixed by using your brain, wait why are you even posting this in the first place? Tongue.

Do you?  What magical block function accessible to ordinary users prevents some harassing asshole from registering dozens of accounts to keep their harassment going?

Obamacare stays true to its lies on every level, on every layers of its deceptions, with the face of someone who was not even born in the USA and hasn't try to get her citizenship yet. This is not a critic about her own decisions and her life but a demonstration of the serendipity of this whole project. Colombian women are hot,  but who knew Mona Lisa's real name was Adriana.

I need to get better using Gimp and should take more time fine-tuning my skills. The more I see my little work the more I see the things I should have dealt with.
