  1. Because it’s his evil socialist plot because he’s the black reincarnation of Joseph Stalin he’s gonna enslave the white people aaaaahhh be scared.

  2. Because without the left and the media’s love affair with Obama the horrible bill would have never been fostered upon the country

    His responsibility, he gets the name

  3. Because his administration worked closely with congressional leadership and many of the writers of the actual bill, which had for the most part been written about 2 years before it was introduced. Many of the writers and drafters of the bill were long time Obama advisers and friends. Plus Obama signed the bill into law.

  4. He ran on creating it. He lied about what it said. He called everyone that questioned it, racist. I’ll bet he never read it just so he could have plausible deniable.

  5. it wasn’t reform so much as a “redistribution” of wealth. It had nothing to do with healthcare.

    It’s called ObamaScare because Obama pushed it, stumped for it, and tried to sell as this great thing. He didn’t even know what was in the bill before he and Pelosi approved it. The guy that wrote it, doesn’t understand it, and Con-gress voted to keep their own health insurance. So what’s good for us, is not good enough for them.

  6. Is not just Republicans that call the Health Care Law, Obama-care. While Bill Clinton was in office Hillary tried to have a nationalized Health Care system, it was nicknamed Hillary-care. this Obama-care nickname is just the same continuation of the same idea.

    When Social Security was created it had a nickname. Anytime a politician purposes a law they run the risk of it being oh wait the laws are always named after those that pose it.

  7. He campaigned for it like it was the greatest thing since sliced bread. Then he signed it after it passed the House and Senate. No one read it before voting for it and Obama didn’t read it before he signed it. As Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D – California) – the most stupid woman in office ever – said, “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.”

    The only thing foggy is Pelosi’s brain. Assuming she has one to begin with. Which is doubtful.

  8. he signed it into law so it’s called obamacare or obama’s deathcare,i prefer the latter since it’s designed to kill off the baby boomers
