Say ACA, not Obamacare

“Obamacare” is the derogatory, partisan term for the Affordable Care Act (the ACA).

It was created to deflect attention away from what the Act does, and toward an individual having a non-mainstream name.

Whether or not it was invented by Karl Rove, it is Karl Rovian in style and intent.  That is to say, it is Goebbelsian.

An unbiased news commentator or reporter would say Affordable Care Act, or, for brevity, the ACA.

“Obamacare” is euphonious, which, together with the efforts of the right wing noise machine, has made it common.  But it is disinformation.  It carries spin.
