I call it "NoOneCare" because no one really cares what you call it.

Notice how Republicans aren't keen on recognizing Afghanistan as Dubya War One and Iraq as Dubya War Two?

Calling it the 'Affordable' Care Act isn't exactly accurate either. Maybe they should take a cue from Prince and name it some unpronounceable glyph.

It's awful.  As soon as the website went down my sister got dropped from our parents' health plan and now she can't get insurance because of her pre-existing condition.  They really should have backed up the law someplace else instead of storing everything on healthcare.gov

csb: My Tea Party uncle just referred to it yesterday as the ACA and said that it's the "mainstream media" that insists on calling the ACA "Obamacare."

Kangaroo_Ralph: It makes as much sense to call it ObamaCare as calling free government phones ObamaPhones or free government debit cards ObamaOhSnap.

Obama took ideas intended to help the poor and exploded the taxpayer funding of them 1000x to create a larger pool of dependency to vote on people like him.  We should call them ObamaSheep.


Of course he did dear.

Now here's a cookie.  Go outside and play.

I guess HuffPo didn't get the memo.

And yes, Obama himself embraced the term in October 2012, using it in speeches dozens of times.

And good for him. It's his baby. There's nothing wrong with attaching his name to it, good or bad, and it's going to happen whether he "wants" it to or not. He should be PROUD to attach his name to it, if he's proud of the legislation.. shouldn't he?

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.

Well, it's time to put you back on the ignore list. Even if you're not serious, that shiat gets tiring.

Really?

Is it your goal to be taken seriously by no one?

Aside from the first Obama-Romney debate? Or do you not consider the President serious when he said he'd "become fond of this term"?

They called it Obamacare before hand to appease the ego of Dear Leader.  Now that it's clear that it is a complete clusterf*ck, they will call it Potatos to protect the ego of Dear Leader.

I call it shiat. Because that is what it is.


Of all the things that never happened, this one never happened the most.

What?  Call it by its right name rather than by the name the right-wing think tanks came up with to turn people against it?  That's silly!
