“This Happens When I Talk Too Long”

• On 21 October 2013 while in the White House Rose Garden and on live television, United States President Barack Obama stopped his speech about the Affordable Care Act in order to briefly steady a woozy pregnant woman named Karmel Allison until she could be led away to be helped. Other people also helped steady her. President Obama said, “I got you, you’re OK.” He joked, “This happens when I talk too long.” Ms. Allison benefitted from the Affordable Care Act: Now she can shop for a cheaper health insurance policy because the Affordable Care Act does not allow insurance companies to deny coverage because of a pre-existing condition such as diabetes, with which Ms. Allison was diagnosed at age nine. Later, Ms. Allison tweeted, “I’m ok world — just got a little light-headed. Thanks, @BarackObama for catching me!”
