WATCH LIVE: TRUMP WHITE HOUSE PRESS CONFERENCE

President Obama Reappropriating ObamaCare From Conservatives

The Obama Administration has decided to reappropriate the long pejorative ‘Obamacare’ and has begun using it on 2012 reelection materials.

“Let everyone know: ‘I like Obamacare,'” Obama campaign manager Jim Messina wrote in an email to supporters. “What’s not to like? Obamacare means you won’t have to pay out of pocket for preventive care like cancer screenings and birth control, insurance companies can no longer drop people when they get sick or refuse coverage for “pre-existing conditions,” and women won’t have to pay more just for being women.”

President Obama’s campaign also tweeted in support of reclaiming the word.

Last August, Obama answered a question regarding the term, quipping
“I have no problem with folks saying ‘Obamacares.’…I do care.”

Happy birthday, Obamacare.

Here’s to two years of making the lives of millions of Americans better every single day.

If you’re tired of the other side throwing around that word like it’s an insult, then join me in sending a message that we’re proud of it.

Let everyone know: “I like Obamacare.”

What’s not to like? Obamacare means you won’t have to pay out of pocket for preventive care like cancer screenings and birth control, insurance companies can no longer drop people when they get sick or refuse coverage for “pre-existing conditions,” and women won’t have to pay more just for being women.

The bottom line is, the more people know about health care reform, the more they like it. So make sure your friends and family know that Obamacare is something to be proud of — and worth fighting for.

Say you like Obamacare today:
