Does anybody ever wonder

if Obama care had been done the exact same way but by a white man some people would be more accepting of it? Just asking.

1. If it hadn't been Obama Care

And been called the Affordable Care Act, instead...I believe more people would have been more accepting!

2. They already ARE,

among those who simply refer to it as the ACA, they LIKE. Was someone's 'handy' nick-name that gave us much of the misery.

7. And we've all heard the sad examples...

of Trump voters who hate Obamacare with a fiery passion and want it repealed immediately, but their love their Affordable Care Act, and they'll fight anyone who wants to change it.

3. They used the term derisively so they can do their best to destroy it

and it worked- look at all the surprised Dump supporters who are like "duur oh noes now I'm not gonna have healthcare"

If not "Obamacare" they would have called it "Liberalcare" or something, some catchphrase to get the masses all riled up and hating on it... pretty ridiculous if you ask me.

9. It was. Called Romney Care in MA


It was originally launched by the Heritage Foundation as an alternative to the Clinton proposal of employee mandated health care in the 90s.

Orin Hatch introduced a similar proposal in the Senate.

Romney used that to put in Romney Care.

When Obama used it to structure universal coverage it suddenly became Communist inspired.
