Obama is now calling it ACA in his press conferences. Ha,ha, ha!! What a joke this is. We had a Government shut down because the GOP said Obamacare was a disaster and needed to be scrapped or at the very least delayed. Now it's clear they were right and Obama is delaying it. Lol!

Soon it should collapse on itself. I'm hopeful anyway. Like everything else Obama won't know about it until after it's done. Or he will learn about it on the news with the rest of us. His administration acts stupidly like that. Maybe it's just inexperience, maybe it's to much golf, or maybe it's the homemade brew. Sadly comical indeed.

He reminds of Baghdad Bob.

Wtf are you talking about? It IS called the ACA. Obamacare was a term invented by the GOP 'news' channel.

WTF are you talking about? Obama himself refers to it as Obamacare when it's not proving itself to be the mess we predicted it would be. Progressives like Axlerod, Sebelius, Van Jones, and the liberal media all refer to it as Obamacare. Your own poster mess for liberalism, Anthony Weiner, even claimed HE coined the term! How could you forget that??

You might be right though, one should not refer to this ill-conceived and insanely rolled-out mess of a law as "Obamacare", as Obama himself didn't write a word of it, and, like his fellow democrat lemming, likely never read a word of it.

There isn't anything affordable in the "Affordable" Care Act, so we shouldn't refer to it as ACA either.

I say we agree to take one of the key architects of this flawed legislation's advice, Democrat Max Baucus, and refer to it as a "train Wreck", or "Humpty Dumpty".

Would it make you feel better if we just referred to it as I have for some time now - "HumptyCare"??

Here.. I would not want you to think anyone here would lie to you as you look in the mirror. Watch it to the end. You are just as uneducated and uninformed as ever. Lol

Pipester/Bob, etc., thinks they know everything but with every post they show that what they actually know about anything would fit on the head of a pin with a whole lot of room left over.

Ironically, it was Mitt Romney who coined the term "obamacare", not the GOP news channel that was suggested by "Stupid".

He/She was wrong, not that they'll admit it or alter their stupid tactic of ignoring reality and facts when just blaming everything on FOC News is easier.

Liberals are too damned lazy to argue their stance with facts. They opt for the easy insult every time.

Indeed...as was most of the dbag party:

"the Obama campaign has now made it official:

The campaign launched a Facebook feed Friday featuring a big “I Like Obamacare” logo. The social network rollout also included a Twitter hashtag that the campaign reported become the top trending topic in the world within hours. On the web, an “I Like Obamacare” frontpage popped up on the Obama campaign website.

In an email to supporters, Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod said it was time for Democrats to turn the “Obamacare” insult into a badge of honor.“I’m proud of it — and you should be, too,” he wrote.“Here’s why: Because it works.”'

LOL...'it works'...NOT

Seems "Stupid" missed the memo.

The left has "moved on" to a new talking point, which is simply deny the fiasco they've created all by themselves, deny the $600 plus million inoperative Humpty.gov , deny the 5 million and growing Americans who've received cancelation notices courtesy of the democrats, and deny the 30 plus million Americans who were told they'd be able to afford health insurance only to find out it was just a little lie to get them to vote ...

... ignore ALL of that, and just say, "IT WORKS!"

Why does it work? What evidence or reality gives them any basis to claim it works?

None. It just does because they say it does and if you don't like it you're a racist!

Dems have not only used it, they are playing political theater with it. Don't take my word for it, listen to the obnoxious radical Debbie Wasserman Schultz's insane comments:
