Steny Hoyer Stops Saying 'Obamacare'

Apparently, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer got the new memo and has stopped calling the Affordable Care Act  “ObamaCare,” though like many others including the White House, he had no problem doing so not all that long ago.

Today a reporter noted the change in his language.

“Yeah, I wish I hadn’t called it ‘Obamacare’ before, because that has politicized it and has been used by Republicans as a pejorative term,” Hoyer, D-Md., said after a reporter noted Tuesday that he repeatedly called the health care law by its formal name.

“I don’t know that we need to re-brand the Affordable Care Act,” he said. “We do need to say it is the Affordable Care Act.”

What a difference a month, a failed website and a struggling healthcare program can make!

“You want to call it ‘Obamacare’ – that’s okay, because I do care,” Obama said at a 2012 Atlanta fundraiser. 

“I actually like the name,” Obama said at a 2012 campaign stop at the University of Denver. “Because I do care – that’s why we fought so hard to make it happen.”
