Flashback: ‘When it’s working and everybody is really happy with it, the Republicans will stop calling it Obamacare’

Petraeus And Crocker Testify Before Senate On State Of Iraq War

The failed president said this just over a month ago.

“My suspicion is what is going to happen is when it’s working and everybody is really happy with it, Republicans are going to stop calling it ‘Obamacare,’” the president said Tuesday in an interview with New York’s WABC TV station.

Well, guess who’s stopped calling it ObamaCare?

President Barack Obama and loyal Democrats once embraced the term Obamacare to sell the American people on health care reform.

Not anymore.

With the president’s approval ratings at record lows, a broken website and Obama under fire for his pledge that people could keep their plans, the “Affordable Care Act” has returned.

The president didn’t say “Obamacare” once during his nearly hourlong news conference last week, while he referred to the “Affordable Care Act” a dozen times. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi went so far as to correct David Gregory on “Meet the Press” Sunday on the proper terminology. And White House talking points distributed to Democrats and obtained by POLITICO repeatedly refer to the Affordable Care Act in suggested sound bites, not Obamacare.

Since ObamaCare is now synonymous with failure and disaster, even Obama doesn’t want to call it ObamaCare.

    This sounds like another really SMART Power!!!!!111!!!!!elebinty idea. Call it affordable when people premiums are doubling with double the deductible and triple the co-pays.

    One can only tell the big lie and have it believed if it is happening to somebody else and not affecting you. .
