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?
“It was old Ebeneezer Scrooge who coined the term ObamaCare”
Naw, he would have eliminated medicaid, to hell with the poor!
Well, just in terms of the ***care idea:
In 2003, then California State Senator Sheila Kuehl introduced a single payer health insurance bill. Kuehl is a former actress who once played a character named Zelda on the old Dobie Gillis Show. Her bill was promptly dubbed “Zeldacare” by a certain blogger/Freeper. The name got a fair amount of circulation.
“Free Republic posters want to claim credit.”
I actually read about it first on FR. Thinking we should get an entry on wiki but it won’t get past the obama ass-kissing moderators there.
When people find out what level of service they are getting for their money, they’ll call it.... ZEROCARE.
No, really. It was me.
I dont think anything tops earned income tax credit as not only deceptive but a 100% lie!
When you're the President, it's your tar baby, even if you abdicated its birth to Pelosi and Reid and their libtard staffs. And the more you try to fix it, the worse it will get!
That's down right racist!.....and accurate. I like it, "tar baby care".
i would accept changing it to Obamacide. i’m flexible.
Obamacare = weasel word for “medical protection racket”
He told Romney in one of the debates that he liked it being called obamacare.
This raises an excellent point, as there just might not be much quality "care" in "obamacare".
So, I'm with those who want to change the moniker to something that reflects the originator, but it still based on realistic exceptions of just what the AFA has in store for everyone reading this.
What do you think of...
The Barack Obama Confiscation and Forced Collectivization of Health Plans (Excluding Congress, Congressional Staffers, Labor Unions, and Large Donors) and Ancillary Laws to be Made Up Whenever; All while Promising Health Care Cost Savings (Ha Ha) And that you can Keep Your Doctor (Ha Ha Ha)?
Hmmm, probably not long enough.
Interesting comment at link...Romney was actually one of the first to call it 0bama-care...way back in 2007. Ironic. Here's a link to that...
"I've watched with interest these last few days, watching the Democrats come out with their plans on health care. They don't understand," Romney said. "The path of Europe is not the way to go. Socialized medicine, Hillary-care, Obama-care, they don't get it.
How about Progressive Care?
Isolate the target
I think you should put a ' n ' Between the o and the C. That will be most descriptive for those who find themselves facing one of the faceless "Death Panels".
We burn witches...
Zerocare is a better name for it!
Does montag813 know about you?
Is he available for fleecing of assets?
Imagine a Lib skank propagandist for hire by the hour.
A Goebbels, that gobbles.
I assume this has to do with approval of congressional newsletters. Newsletters are bulk mail and have long been distinguished from individual constituent mail.
With modern word processing, this gets a bit tricky. It has been many years since I worked on the Hill, but offices used to be (and I presume still are) required to submit newsletter copy for approval by (IIRC) the House Administration Committee, or whatever it is called these days. Again if recollection serves, back in my day small lists could be mailed without prior review, but anything over 500 pieces had to be submitted.
Newsletters are not supposed to be political in nature, so very murky lines get drawn about what is permissible. This leads to periodic dustups.
If the dems are censoring Obamacare, they are opening themselves to mockery. Assuming, of course, that tone deaf Republicans are agile enough to respond.
As I felt like wasting a lot of time, I did some (read: way WAY too much) clicking around ..
As it turns out, Cicero was right: socialized health care in the US is often labeled by those fighting hardest for that particular implementation: hence the preceding "Hillary-Care", "RomneyCare", etc.
The first references to ObamaCare started appearing when Zero made his call for "Universal Health Care" in a speech to "Families USA" on 1/25/07, when his campaign was supposedly in "exploratory mode".
The first use of "Hussein Care" was:
"When can we start referring to his proposal as "Hussein Care"? "
in the thread:
Obama calls for universal health care within six years (and Hillary too)
by PBRSTREETGANG on 1/26/07, 11 AM;
The first use of "Obama Care" was:
"If obama-care mirrors the earlier hillary-care, the government will decide doctor's specialties."
in the thread:
"Obama Calls for Universal Health Care"
by Jacquerie on 1/29/07, 5 AM;
What's fascinating about going back into these threads and searching around is just HOW different the world was back then! In early 2007,
It’s a moron vs an oxymoron.
Obamacare is good for placing the blame where it belongs. Without Obama, the bill would not have been signed into law.
However, since the care we’re going to get might be comparable to what people in Obama’s home country get, why not call it KenyaCare?
Another name that would fit, is BOCare, in honor of the dog in the White House.
Since Obamacare is nothing but a Ponzi scheme, why not name it appropriately, and call it PonziCare.
Using your evidence, the original concept award would go to PBRSTREETGANG.
Somewhere today at FR, someone is making a comment that foreshadows a disaster we won’t hear about until 2019.
And, because the MSM/0 handlers don't like us to use his middle name.
Well whaddaya know!
thanku...if house were the senate and roles were reversed...they would change the rules
But if democrats now regard "Obamacare" as a term of invective, that is good news.
