Mark my words, by 2016, no GOPer will say Obamacare

By the time of the next Prez election cycle, the ACA will be so successful and accepted into millions of people's lives, no one on the Right will want to credit him with the plan. That won't bother PBO one bit, but whoever we nominate better fly that flag proudly to remind every voter that indeed there is a difference between the parties and which one will look out for the American people.

1. They'll try to take credit for it by 2016. If not sooner. nt

3. That's why WE need to keep calling it Obamacare.

Flawed as the program is (and it is majorly flawed), it is a foretaste of what we could have if we would only join the civilized world in our approach to healthcare.

2. The clue will be when they stop

calling it Obamacare. It's no longer an ugly word.

4. I imagine Frank Luntz is already busy coming up with an alternative buzz-word

 

Meanwhile, in states that aren't participating in the exchanges, they'll be busy blaming their crappy health care ON Obamacare, and will offer the exchanges as a republican alternative to it.

Yes, they are that crazy

Certainly sounds like something they'd do.

8. Republicans are already trying to pivot. They are looking for changes to the ACA that they can make

because Democrats also support the changes. The medical device tax is such a part. Republicans are in good position to get the medical device tax removed, unless the President vetoes that removal. Once republicans make one small change, they are going to attempt to claim credit for getting the whole ACA done AND making it better. All Democrats must realize that the typical republican is a lying sack of shit that can't be trusted to not stab one in the back on a ten yard walk.

6. I've said the same thing. And it will ALWAYS be Obamacare to us, right?



(ETA have you noticed this pumpkin is winking? A thing of beauty.)

7. They'll be calling it "Romneycare" or "Heritage Foundationcare" by then.

 

They'll demand full credit for it.

9. Sorry

but they still want to do away with Social Security, Medicare and WIC.
They have started dismantling the Voting Rights Act and Roe v Wade.
They never stop attacking things they hate, no matter how popular.
