DENVER -- President Barack Obama specifically profiled the plight of a Colorado woman failed by the health care system in Wednesday night's nationally televised address.
But when 7NEWS started asking basic questions such as where is she from and what is her name, the administration that prides itself on being transparent wouldn't say a word.
In Wednesday night's speech, Obama said, "This is about the woman in Colorado who paid $700 a month to her insurance company, only to find out that they wouldn't pay a dime for her cancer treatment, who had to use up her retirement funds to save her own life." Click here to find out more!
Pretty compelling stuff, right?
Her story is so important that the president told it to the entire country.
7NEWS thought it was important enough to fact check.
But when we called the White House Press Office to find out more about this very public story, a spokesman said the White House wants to protect the woman's privacy and won't be releasing any information about her.
Not her name. Not where she's from. Nothing.
When there are so many people suffering, coming forward with health care nightmares, why choose to highlight a woman you can't name? Does the woman actually exist?

She isn’t ficticious, she’s a composite! LOL
The list, ping
Plot continues without scrutiny.
” Does the woman actually exist?”
Stupid question. Of course she doesn’t.
It's like they (the press) are waking up and realizing there is no tooth fairy.
News Flash! He MADE UP the story of the Colorado woman, just like he MADE UP the story of Emperor Hirohito surrendering to General MacArthur on the USS Missouri!
