Posted on 12/01/2013 7:29:09 PM PST by South40
House Democrats are blocking their Republican colleagues from using Obamacare in letters mailed on the taxpayer's dime to voters, but who made up the term in the first place? Lots of people are asking this question, getting answers like "Certainly a republican, potentially Glenn Beck" and "I am about 80% sure it was Rush Limbaugh" and "Hillary Clinton's campaign coined Obamacare." Iowa Rep. Steve King claimed President Obama himself made it up. Free Republic posters want to claim credit. Lots of liberals suspect an insidious plot by Fox News. But the answer appears to be: a lobbyist.

Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
formerly known as the Service Members Home Ownership Tax Act of 2009
You're right. Dems know there's major problems with the program... that's why they're switching to 'affordable care'. Sooooo Owellian a name...
You know what? he told a crowd of supporters in Texas recently. Theyre right. I do care.
“From the NYT, Aug 2012Whether Democrats can change a pejorative into a positive is unclear, but after three years on the defensive, they have resigned themselves to the fact that Obamacare has become the popular name for the sweeping social program, and they are trying to spin it in their direction. Particularly since the Supreme Court upheld the laws constitutionality, Mr. Obama and his allies have tried to take ownership of the term.”
Then call it ‘ObamaDon’tCare’
A genius idea like that most likely came from a collection of geniuses.
I almost didn’t pass the test when I registered here. (Cheated.)
I think I coined the term, and I think I was the first to use Obummer.
Now, since I claim responsibility for the term, I also feel responsible for changing the term, so, I think Obamacare should be renamed to something that better reflects what it does to America.
The new term is “FUCare” or F.U.C., as an abbreviation.
Some might like the temr “FUBOCare”.
Closer to Zerocare.
Now they are censoring GOP mailings

Perfect. I want the bumper sticker.
“And that names of bills can be highly deceptive”
I don’t think anything tops “earned income tax credit” as not only deceptive but a 100% lie!
I’m Sparticus!! </LOL
It was old Ebeneezer Scrooge who coined the term “ObamaCare”
I prefer Obama(don’t)Care.
That is what I meant to say.
Oh?! The great and most fantastic attorney who slobbered all over himself for Christine Odonnel?
