President Obama helps a woman - level 3
“He was feeling a little less frustrated when he found out he was saving 900 bucks a month!”
Obama was hoping to send a message about affordable healthcare on Monday, but unbeknownst to him, attention was instead being drawn to someone fainting behind his podium.
“… to lift from the American people the crushing burden of unaffordable healthcare.”
Listening to an address about the Affordable Care Act in the White House’s Rose Garden, Karmel Allison was struggling to stay upright before eventually the President noticed the commotion behind him and in a pretty memorable save, stepped in to help.
“You’re okay. This happens when I talk too long.”
Allison, who the White House said had Type 1 diabetes, was taken away for medical assistance.
“Good catch, by the way, whoever was here.”
Difficult words: frustrated (under stress), buck (dollar), unbeknownst (without the knowledge), faint (when you don’t feel good for a moment), burden (problem), struggle (try to do something hard), eventually (in the end), commotion (sudden noisy activity), step in (become involved in something).
