Not Obama Care

Why do people insist on calling the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act "Obama Care"?

It's insipid and rhetorical, lends nothing to the conversation and is disingenuous.

Obama didn't write this law.
Obama didn't pass this law.
Obama signed the law, as he has signed almost all other laws created by Congress.

Putting his name on it is pure propaganda which hopes that whatever bad feelings people have for Obama is transferred to the law created by Congress.

• Introduced in the House as the "Service Members Home Ownership Tax Act of 2009" (H.R. 3590) by Charles Rangel (D–NY) on September 17, 2009
• Committee consideration by: Ways and Means
• Passed the House on October 8, 2009 (416–0)
• Passed the Senate as the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" on December 24, 2009 (60–39) with amendment
• House agreed to Senate amendment on March 21, 2010 (219–212)
• Signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010

Some things to read so you know what you are actually debating, because it's not Obama you're debating.

it's simple, it's tagged with his name because he personally pushed for the law to be written and had considerable input and influence in it's writing.  Congress may have written and passed it, but it's his baby and he has never denied it.

Dammit, they don't tell me his Swattig score!!!
 
So much for "It's just a game."

The scarier thing is that this happens so often there's a term for it: swatting.
An intense session of online gaming turned nasty when armed police and a SWAT team were called to the house of 17-year-old Rafael Castillo in Long Island, New York.
