Remember when "Obamacare" was a slur by the right wing. Check out this FB post.



ADVICE: Don't call it "Obama care" anymore. Start calling it what it is...."National Health Care"...anyway, that's the term my dad used back in 1980... Take that little weasel's name out of it.

1. I loved it in the debate when Obama said he kind of liked the term "Obamacare"

and I believe he knew he was messing withe the right-wing nut jobs.

2. The thing Obama has to say in his next speech

 

"Breathing deeply is really good for you! In fact, any breathing is OK, and breathing is a central part of Obamacare."

4. Absolutely, by taking ownership of the term he's turned the tables...

on those that sought to perpetuate it as a term of derision. It's a beautiful thing.

3. I hope it sticks

Obama's legacy will be forever remembered along with the fact that he cared.

6. "ObamaCare" started out that way, but it will live on the way "New Deal" did...

 

... which ALSO was used as a slur.
