    (At least when talking to people who realize it's snark.)

    I especially enjoy calling it Obamacare when talking to one particular Libertarian friend who's pretty anti-Obama. It seems to annoy him when I use the term myself, since he likes to mockingly use it. :)

    As for your points...I think we need to make fewer and more salient points. People who think that there are death panels and that the ACA funds abortions are the type who will always believe that Obama is a Muslim born in Kenya.

    Let's point out how many new adults and children have already been covered, or will soon be covered. Let's point out how most Americans will be able to afford insurance and better contribute to a stronger, healthier nation...when so many cannot afford it right now. There are a lot of points to be made, but the right-wing talking points don't necessarily need more repudiation, I guess.

      Most people who denounce "Obamacare" will never change. It is about a black in the White House or some other cultural matter.

      I'm just interested in influencing that small part of the indep[endent electgorate thaty is open to facts.
