Lt. Cheese Weasel: They called it Obamacare before hand to appease the ego of Dear Leader.
Shostie: ShawnDoc: I call it Ted.[media.tumblr.com image 500x282]
Lionel Mandrake: Lt. Cheese Weasel: They called it Obamacare before hand to appease the ego of Dear Leader.Really?Is it your goal to be taken seriously by no one?
Ambivalence: Did we ever? Really? That term was coined by republicans as an attempt to tie it around obama's neck so he wouldn't get reelected. It was never used seriously by democrats.
James!: I still call it Obamacare.
Rhino_man: Of all the things that never happened, this one never happened the most.
mrshowrules: James!: I still call it Obamacare.This. I use them interchangeably. If anything, I've seen conservatives using "ACA" more often. I think because it is just shorter.
apoptotic: mrshowrules: James!: I still call it Obamacare.This. I use them interchangeably. If anything, I've seen conservatives using "ACA" more often. I think because it is just shorter.I've seen conservatives using ACA lately too. I think it's because they know now that they won't be able to repeal it before January 1st and have that realized that once it kicks in, many people won't want to give it up no matter what it's called. If the GOP keeps calling it Obamacare they won't be able to as easily make the pivot from trying to get rid of it to taking credit for it.
I_C_Weener: James!: I still call it Obamacare.DINO!!!!
doublesecretprobation: uh, democrats have been referring to it by it's proper name all along, the president especially.
gilgigamesh: I call it "HeritageCare" to memorialize its origin.
Eddie Adams from Torrance: Does this mean that we don't get to keep the death panels?I have a granny that needs killin'.
pmdgrwr: Funny, just last week it was still being held a great piece of legislation. Now Dems are trying to change the terms in hopes people are dumb enough to think that the ACA and Obamacare are two different things.
Masso: Democrats never called it Obamacare...
Lando Lincoln: So there's some conservatives out there that believe Democrats started calling it "Obamacare" because we wanted to tie this law to Obama forever and ever?
Lando Lincoln: abb3w: Or do you not consider the President serious when he said he'd "become fond of this term"?No, I don't, since he wasn't.
Shrugging Atlas: Ambivalence: Did we ever? Really? That term was coined by republicans as an attempt to tie it around obama's neck so he wouldn't get reelected. It was never used seriously by democrats.
Elegy: Ambivalence: Did we ever? Really? That term was coined by republicans as an attempt to tie it around obama's neck so he wouldn't get reelected. It was never used seriously by democrats.I've been assured multiple times on Fark that democrats love the name Obamacare. The reasoning goes that in 50 years the ACA will be recognized as a seminal piece of legislation like social security, and the name "Obamacare" forever been links the legislation to a democrat president by name.So yes, really.
Swampmaster: So, we will now do a "Comment log review to see all the democrat f@rk3rs who cheered so drunkenly for this legislation over the last few months..."With the president's approval ratings at record lows, a broken website and Obama under fire for his pledge that people could keep their plans, the "Affordable Care Act" has returned.The president didn't say "Obamacare" once..."Hey, it's a written law right? No changes/ no complaints/ no do-overs.../"Youhave to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what's in it!" Nancy Pelosi//"Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself." - Mark Twain
Lionel Mandrake: SlothB77: Lt. Cheese Weasel: "You want the law to have approval rating higher than POTUS has," a Democratic official said Monday.Lulz. That shouldn't be too hard. Just keep polishing that turd, it'll work out.In a few more weeks, they will wish 0bamacare had favor-ability ratings as high as the POTUS.The rumors of Obama's demise have been greatly exaggerated. Again. *yawn*
I_C_Weener: And here we have it being used by Democrats and Democrat groups.
James!: I_C_Weener: James!: I still call it Obamacare.DINO!!!![img2.timeinc.net image 350x400]I prefer Dean-o.
I_C_Weener: And here is a poll indicating that Democrat voters like the ACA better when called Obamacare than the real name.
