Pelosi to Reporter: It’s Not Obamacare, It’s The Affordable Care Act

BY: Washington Free Beacon Staff

January 9, 2014 4:45 pm

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) retorted to a reporter’s question about slipping support for Obamacare at her Thursday press conference that it was called the “Affordable Care Act.”

Pelosi has referred to the law previously as Obamacare, although she also told Meet the Press host David Gregory she’d “always” called it the Affordable Care Act during a contentious November interview.

Full exchange:

Q: The three “Obamacare” bills on the floor tomorrow in the House, some Democrats have indicated they might be open to supporting them. How strongly are you pushing members to vote against them? And does it start to become a sign of weakening support if more Democrats –

NANCY PELOSI: Absolutely not. First of all, it’s called the “Affordable Care Act.” If that’s what you’re referencing, yeah, they are going after the Affordable Care Act. They’re saying, let’s do everything we can to take away health insurance from 9 million Americans who already have it and prevent many more millions of Americans from having it.

It’s the “We have to pass it before the American people find out what’s in it” Act.

We should stop calling it Obamacare. It’s making it more popular. (The real name should be Romneycare or HeritageFoundationcare anyway)

If calling it Obamacare were making it more popular, Pelousy would be screaming it from the rooftops.

During one of the debates, Romney called it Obamacare, and Obama said that the term was growing on him. So if he’s OK with it . . . hmm, maybe that’s a reason to call it the Affordable Care Act after all.

Both are jokes but calling it affordable is even a bigger joke than calling it Obama’s.

No matter what you call it, it’s a POS.

Watch for it...this will go out on the JournaList command network, the orders to refer to it only as ACA, not associated with Obama Himself.

Don’t let them do it. I’ve banished all forms of “ACA” from my vocabulary. Alinsky works both ways.

It is NOT ObamaCare! IT IS DEMOCRAP CARE!

The DEMOCRAPS passed it in both Houses of the Congress and CZAR GOSNELL GOEBBELS signed it into law.

And GOEBBELS has been on the campaign trail ever since demonizing everyone who opposed this DEMOCRAP initiative.

Every voter should remember this in NOVEMBER 2014! Flush them all from office as you would your toilet!

Barack Obama referred to it as “Obamacare” on several occasions.

So, why should I not?

Yeah, kind of pot and kettle with that one. Like he had a real problem with putting a gun to someone's head and forcing them to buy a policy from his campaign contributors.

Lying.

For Democrats, it's a sporting event, a way of life.

They would rather lie than tell the truth; curiously, even when they would be better served by the truth.

Queen Pelosi claims that Dems will run on ObamaCare, but she doesn’t want the name to besmirch her hero’s reputation? Perhaps she realizes that socialism is neither as successful as she promised nor as popular as she claims.

“The real name should be Romneycare or HeritageFoundationcare ...”

IIRC, it was Heritage from the beginning that put out the most accurate, damning information about the perils of Obamacare. I really don’t ‘get’ your post. Would you be good enough to explain, please?

PELOSI: Absolutely not. First of all, it’s called the “Affordable Care Act.”

LOL - Pelosi knows gonna be hard to blame Republicans for this mess when it's called "Obamacare"... The name's a dead give-a-way...

Also, it's not 'affordable'. It's free for most members of dem victim groups - and NOT affordable to anyone else.
