Video: All together now – Obama, Dems stop using term ‘Obamacare’

Now that the president’s signature health insurance plan has turned from victory to disaster, its nickname has changed, too. What was once proudly hailed by liberals as Obamacare is now referred to by its formal name, the Affordable Care Act.

President Obama said once the act got rolling, “I guarantee you they [Republicans] will not call it ‘Obamacare,” according to Townhall’s coverage of the president’s September speech at a Maryland community college.

Obama reiterated the prediction as late as Nov. 8 at a New Orleans gathering, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

“I know health care is controversial, so there’s only going to be so much support we get on that on a bipartisan basis — until it’s working really well, and then they’re going to stop calling it Obamacare,” he said, the Beacon reported. “They’re going to call it something else.”

Well, it’s rolling now, or rather limping. And guess who stopped calling it Obamacare.

The Free Beacon reported:

During an apologetic press conference Nov. 14, Obama referred to his law as the Affordable Care Act 12 times but did not say “Obamacare” once. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who has referred to the law as Obamacare in the past, told Meet the Press host David Gregory that she “always” referred to it as the Affordable Care Act during an interview Sunday, and other Democrats are backing off the term as well.
