Obama: Critics will stop calling it ‘Obamacare’ if it works

By Ben Wolfgang

The Washington Times

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

President Obama has embraced "Obamacare" as the de facto name of his signature health care initiative.

But the commander-in-chief believes that if the law ends up being a wild success, the moniker will disappear.

"My suspicion is what is going to happen is when it's working and everybody is really happy with it, Republicans are going to stop calling it 'Obamacare,'" the president said Tuesday in an interview with New York's WABC TV station.

In other words, he admits that it’s a failure because everyone is calling it Obamacare.

No. Once Hillary is coronated, it will become known as “Single-Payer System”, and ObamaCare will have been a minor roadbump and footnote on the way to full blown Progressive Neo-Marxism.

“Obama: Critics will stop calling it ‘Obamacare’ if it works”

Well I guess the one permanent thing about this will be its current name then.

Reagan made the same prediction about “Reaganomics.”

It worked, and they stopped calling it “Reaganomics.”

This will never happen with Gangrapecare. It will always be called “Obamacare.” A hundred years from now, mothers will frighten disobedient children with tales of “Obamacare.”

How can you identify a fake ObozoScare site?

Fake Health Exchange Sites Easily Identifiable Because They Work
Breitbart ^ | 10-15-2013 | John Sexton

Posted on Tuesday, October 15, 2013 9:42:21 AM by markomalley

Some health insurance brokers are setting up states that mimic the name and look of the official state exchanges. But the fake sites are easily identifiable because, unlike the official sites, they work.

The unofficial sites can sell real insurance plans however those plans have not been certified by the government and are therefore not eligible for government subsidies. So if you log on to a health insurance exchange site that seems to be working properly, caveat emptor.

Only “hundreds” have been able to sign up for a health care plan at the Obamacare websites. The Wall Street Journal reported:

Okay now we will try the landline # 1-800-318-2596 listed above or 1-800-318-2596 = 1-800-FAU-CKYO.

Judging by the its’ overwhelming success so far
I would expect an executive order any day decreeing the
title of it to be “The Affordable Healthcare Act” along
with penalties in the form of fines to be levied
against any citizen who dares to refer to it as
“ObamaCare”
