The media won the war. First they call it the Affordable care Act....Who doesn’t love that name? Secondly, people have ZERO clue what Obamacare is....This is what they think it means: I am hearing people say that Obamacare is letting your children stay on your insurance until 27, letting you continuing having insurance if you get a pre-exsisting condition and let’s you stay on the insurance even if you get sick and cannot drop you. People SERIOUSLY believe this is what Obamacare is all about. This is why many people don’t mind Obamacare and the Conservatives are losing the battle pretty much in the eye of the public. We need to change the message and unfortunately we have an extremely liberal candidate in Romney who feels today is the best day in the history of the Republic...He won’t admit it but he is the reason Obamacare is even in existance...He started it with Romneycare. He is playing politics today but deep down he is proud as can be.
Legislators name their own acts. It wasn’t the media that dubbed it the “Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act” that was the name it was passed and signed under.
But I agree with the point your are making. That is why I called “the Patriot Act” the “Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel Act”. Who doesn’t like the name? Who is against patriotism?
I imagine some time in the future there might well be a “Defense of Motherhood and Apple Pie for America Act” or some such idiocy.
What is in a name? An Act by any other name would smell just as putrid.
