Healthcare name game is confusing, so take note
What's in a name? When it comes to the Affordable Care Act, there must be something. President Barack Obama may have declared that he has no problem with people calling it "Obamacare" – "I do care" – despite the term's origin as a Republican-coined pejorative. But man-and-woman-on-the-street interviews on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" this month indicated that at least some of the American public care about the law's name. They tended to oppose "Obamacare" while supporting the "Affordable Care Act," apparently not realizing the two are one and the same.
