Taking 'obama' Out Of Health Care

Obamacare started out as a pejorative term during Obamas first campaign, and Republicans, especially the tea party, embraced it during protests and rallies against the health care bill. The media generally steered clear as well using phrases such as health care reform to describe the issue. ( WATCH: 6 major players in HealthCare.gov debacle ) But Obama last year reappropriated the term for himself, making the phrase a staple of his stump speech and hawking I (heart) Obamacare bumper stickers. We passed Obamacare yes, I like the term we passed it because I do care, and I want to put these choices in your hands where they belong, Obama said at a typical stop in Iowa last October. Now, the phrase is vanishing from official use. White House website posts in July (Obamacare in Three Words: Saving People Money) and late September (What Obamacare Means for You) called the health care law the O-word. But now HealthCare.gov is almost entirely scrubbed of Obamacare and the law is called the Affordable Care Act in nearly every instance. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.politico.com/story/2013/11/barack-obama-obamacare-affordable-care-act-health-care-law-100034.html
