Here is a chronicle of the evolution of Obamacare from being the birth of Jesus to now being a racial epithet.
Obamacare? Call it Obamacare all you want!
Those awful Republicans won’t call it Obamacare when starts working!
Then, what with the disastrous rollout, democrats decided they needed to “rebrand” Obamacare. Calling it Obamacare was no longer de reigueur. Besides, Obama’s ego, which was so happy to be called Obamacare, no longer wanted to be seen as a failure.
Steny Hoyer started talking funny.
“Yeah, I wish I hadn’t called it ‘Obamacare’ before, because that has politicized it and has been used by Republicans as a pejorative term,” Hoyer, D-Md., said after a reporter noted Tuesday that he repeatedly called the health care law by its formal name.
“I don’t know that we need to re-brand the Affordable Care Act,” he said. “We do need to say it is the Affordable Care Act.”
A year before it was just fine:
“You want to call it ‘Obamacare’ – that’s okay, because I do care,” Obama said at a 2012 Atlanta fundraiser.
“I actually like the name,” Obama said at a 2012 campaign stop at the University of Denver. “Because I do care – that’s why we fought so hard to make it happen.”
Then Obama stopped calling it Obamacare.
How bad has it gotten? It’s gotten so bad that the Obama puppets at MSNBC now equate to the N-word.
When nonsense such as this arises you know Obamacare is not far from the Barackolypse.
And we can’t leave without the remembering the words from the poster girl for Alzheimer’s:
You can’t keep your doctor.
You can’t keep your plan.
You can’t keep your hospital.
And now you’re not covered to get the best treatment when you need it. Even if your life depends on it.
But that was the plan all along. As long as you’re as wealthy as Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid or Barack Obama you’ll be able to pay for the very best care. You’ll sleep better knowing that none of this will affect them.
Charlie Cook says that all this is having an impact, and it’s very bad news for democrats.
Then, in mid-October, the focus shifted from the government-shutdown fiasco to a different debacle, this time a Democratic disaster: the botched launch of the Obamacare website and subsequent implementation problems of the health care law, including termination notices going out to many people who had insurance coverage. The Democratic numbers from the generic-ballot test dropped from 45 percent to 37 percent, and Republicans moved up to 40 percent. This 10-point net shift from a Democratic advantage of 7 points to a GOP edge of 3 points in just over a month is breathtaking, perhaps an unprecedented swing in such a short period. Occurring around Election Day, such a shift would probably amount to the difference between Democrats picking up at least 10 House seats, possibly even the 17 needed for a majority, and instead losing a half-dozen or so seats.
One can only hope.
