Nancy Pelosi Thinks Obamacare is a Winner … San Fran Nan Chides Journalist for using the Term “Obamacare” … It’s the Affordable Care Act, People!!!
Nancy Pelosi (CA-D) was asked by the media whether Obamacare was a winner or loser for a politician in a swing district. Her response was not only ridiculous spin, what followed was just down right embarrassing. Responding to reporter’s question, Pelosi said the unpopular law is a political winner for Democrats and then chided the journalist for using the term “Obamacare.” By the way nancy, I hate to burst your bubble, but it is not affordable.
In response to one reporter’s question, Pelosi said the unpopular law is a political winner for Democrats, chiding the journalist for using the term “Obamacare” in the first place:
It’s the Affordable Care Act, people. Even though it…isn’t affordable for millions upon millions of people, including most of the previously-uninsured population. Also, it’s a real headache to keep up with the lexicon rules. For awhile, “Obamacare” was a vicious Republican slur. Then it was totally fine to use because Team Obama embraced it. Now that the administration has backed away from the term (hilarious context here), Pelosi is back to being a stickler for formality.
As the four-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act approaches, the law remains unpopular with the public. Currently, 53% disapprove of the 2010 health care law while 41% approve of the law. Opinion of the measure is virtually unchanged since last September.
Hmm, I thought Barack Obama did not mind when people call it Obamacare?
