Why Is Barry Now Calling Obamacare Only ACA Now?


Recommended Posts

Funny how Obama's signature legislation that was going to secure him in the history books forever "Obamacare" is now only being referred to as ACA.... :D This crap stinks so bad even Obama is trying to get away from it!

 

President Barack Obama and loyal Democrats once embraced the term Obamacare to sell the American people on health care reform

.

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 during his nearly hourlong news conference last week, while he referred to the “Affordable Care Act” a dozen times. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi went so far as to correct David Gregory on “Meet the Press” Sunday on the proper terminology. And White House talking points distributed to Democrats and obtained by POLITICO repeatedly refer to the Affordable Care Act in suggested sound bites, not Obamacare

He probably went back to it when he realized that he was helping to confuse the infinitely stupid who still think Obamacare and ACA are two different health care options.

 

Or, who gives a shit.

 

The insurance options suck no matter what he calls it.

I don't give a shit about Obamacare, I knew it was a piece of shit from the beginning. You die hard liber's have just swallowed up every drop of Obama and now its biting you in the ass. Only ones that think there are two different health care options are the dumb liber's on the street that unilaterally voted for Obama.

Deflection . . .

 

 

 

 

 

Bammycare was called bullshit from outside the closed doors while being passed. That arrogant cocksucker will never live the set of lies down. Never.

 

His legacy stinks bad and your kind of diffusion will not 'take' except in your own circles, my friend. I won't forget every year I pay anything toward this redistribution.

 

It's a nice reminder: being robbed regularly by the same assholes.

At first he did call it ACA. Then when he thought it was the best thing since sliced bread, he actually called it Obamacare.

Now he's flipped flopped. He knows he shouldn't be too closely associated with it....

Yep...the doors they shut every Republican out of and now the ball less bastard wants to place blame on Republicans now for his signature failure Obamacare. Call it what it is...Obama and Dems have all the signatures on it.

No. His thinking evolved. Just like gay marriage. First he didn't agree with it, turned his "Clinton Eyes" toward the polls and suddenly evolved. Same thing here.

 

He IS enlightened you know.

The intelligent guess would be because that's the name of the law. It also explains why you didn't get it. We'll be referring to it 20 years from now as the Affordable Care Act.

The supreme barak obogus is running from his legacy? What happened to the messiah thing?...the smartest man ever to be elected to the presidency thing?....the great Nobel Prize winner for future achievements thing?...is this the achievement they gave him the prize for?

 

Is there a single progressive who will attempt to explain this?

They (meaning even you assholes) still refer to Reaganomics. Wasn't he the first president to have an attached-name thingie?

 

Closest I can think of is Watergate which spawned many-gates after, but, that isn't a president's name.

 

'Bammycare' as a name will outlive his natural life, dreamer. A fucked legacy for a fucked (but vigorously and most comedically defended) presidency. You are on the wrong side of history here, dufus.

Even he wants to distance himself from this train wreck.

Not hardly dimwit. Apparently you aren't watching the cable news shows right now. In California it is gaining momentum very quickly, in Minnesota the sign ups are now triple from the first of the month, In Washington they already surpassed the sign up numbers expected from October, Kentucky is out performing everybody, equally so in Connecticut, Vermont has gone single payer, Virginia will be opening it's state exchange first of the year now that nutjobs McDonnell, and Cuccinneli no longer have any say so in the matter, and when Charlie Crist stomps a mudhole in Scotts ass next year in the Florida governors election, they will be doing the same. The ACA is a great success, in spite of the sore losers still suffering from butt hurt after last years embarrassing ass kicking the tea party took in the elections, and by this time next year when the tea party takes yet another epic ass kicking in the midterms, triple the number of states will have signed up even more in their exchanges. Try some crushed ice on that sore butt boy.

I certainly don't believe the numbers. Now, what's going to happen when Dec 15 rolls around and these people have to make their first payment?

 

The billing portion of the site is not even started! And there are security vulnerabilities galore!

 

Get the popcorn boys, this is going to be a riot!

The assumption here is that "Obamacare" is a tag Obama hung on the ACA to begin with.

 

The plain history of the term is that the right wing, starting with Teabaggers, started using the term as a pejorative, and Obama effortlessly defanged that bit of grandstanding by adopting the term himself. It says so, right there in YOUR source.

 

Here's another source on the subject.

These are facts, Cons. Deal with them as best you can.

The plans aren't even available for purchase until the first of the year. The open enrollment isn't over until March 1st. And that's just the first round. We are only 7 weeks out from when the enrollment period even began, and you dimwits have already talked yoyrselve's into a corner. I've got the popcorn out alright. It's going to be riot watching you turds eat your words in a few months. Keep on talking.

You poor, pathetic lying bastard!

The plans are available for purchase now, if only the website worked.

Plans have to be PAID FOR by Dec 15, to go into effect on January 1.

 

The open enrollment only means that you don't pay the penalty, if you aren't signed by my March 1.

 

How many people who received cancellation notices, then were told by the President they could keep their plan, are going to show up at the hospital for an emergency and find out they have no coverage?

How many of these people are going to go into foreclosure because of Obamacare?

How many are going to die because their healthcare insurance was cancelled by you idiots?

 

Obama lied, citizens died.

Of course it was a tag "hung" on the ACA. It was meant as ridicule because we KNEW this was going to happen.

During the Presidental campaign, Obama tried to own it, saying "I'm Obama and I care".

You don't hear that anymore, do you?

 

Do you know why?

Because of poll numbers like this WaPo/ABC poll that came out today:

55% Disapprove of how Obama is doing his job.

52% Have an unfavorable view of Obama.

57% Oppose Obamacare.

65% Oppose the individual mandate.

71% Want to delay Obamacare.

 

How long are Dimocrats going to hang with Obamacare with those kinds of numbers?

That doesn't matter in the least. More deflection as usual from the fact that he proudly used the term himself multiple times as though, not just to "defang a pejorative", to promote the program. Even the coddling media took it as the proper nickname since the president himself repeatedly uses used it.

Don't try that deflection shit ALL the time. That a tactic that's getting easier to 'defang' because I'm so fucking sick of it from you defenders of the ass.
