Obamacare 'poster boy' now says he's a girl Kid who watched prez sign law changing gender 2016.03.26 Cheryl Chumley
he 11-year-old boy seen standing alongside and gazing at President Obama during the historic White House signing of Obamacare into law is now a 17-year-old transitioning into a girl.
“Marcelas Owens … was the chubby 11-year-old African=American boy who stood next to President Barack Obama as he signed Obamacare into law at a White House ceremony on March 23, 2010. He was the miniature health care activist in the black vest dwarfed by powerful lawmakers in a famous photo of that moment. He was a modern-day Peter Pan, perpetually frozen in childhood even as the news cycle moved on,” wrote CNN.
He’s “starting to tell family and friends what [he’s] long known: Though born male, he’s long identified as a female.”
So now, as Obamacare enters its sixth anniversary of signing, Owens is reported considering hormone therapy.
“I’m going through a reinvention process,” Owens told CNN. “I’m growing into adulthood. I’m not the Obamacare kid anymore.”
And thanks to Obamacare, it won’t be so expensive for him to obtain the hormone treatments.
