    "Obamacare" is a direct descendant of "Hillarycare" and it's no different than using personal derision of Al Gore to promote climate change denial. It's a way of avoiding the facts by encouraging people to disagree with someone they don't like.

      However, if the pejorative "Obamacare" and "socialism" are linked inextricably with a policy and program the people ultimately grow fond of, it ought to reduce some of the antipathy to social policy and to President Obama.

      Somewhat.

      I never underestimate the human capacity for cognitive dissonance.
      (Witness, "keep your government hands off my Medicare.")

      You don't get to vote on how the world is arranged. You already voted. (The good news is, you will vote today for how the world will be arranged tomorrow.)
