Washington (CNN) - It's less of a tongue-twisting jumble than the phrase "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act."
The sleek, slang word used by some to describe the health reform law signed by President Barack Obama has taken on a roller-coaster trajectory of its own, first coming into favor with Republicans as a criticism of the law, and more recently, as the subject of Democratic efforts to reclaim it.
when Obama abandoned his party single payer system, and jumped on to the repubs mandate system, the repubs jumped ship. the repubs doesn't want a national healthcare system, they want the free market to left alone, to rape the American people unabated,and with majority of the white votes backing them, they probably will get what they wanted.
Obamacare is a good word. Thank goodness it's not reviled like the word "Reaganomics." Remember that one?
I don't trust the federal government to make health care decisions for me, but I'll gladly let health insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies do it for me at a much higher rate.
