As the president spoke at length of the virtues of Obamacare Monday, a young woman beneficiary of the program nearly fainted behind Mr. Obama on the steps of the White House Rose Garden.

Mr. Obama was talking about the need “to free families from the pervasive fear that one illness,” when he turned to look at the woman, whose eyes grew wide as she teetered backwards.

A man standing behind her caught the woman as Mr. Obama also reached for her.

“I gotcha. You’re OK,” the president said. “This happens when I talk too long.”

The woman, Karmel Allison, suffers from diabetes. And she announced on her blog that she is pregnant, Real Clea Politics reported.
