Obamacare: What is it?

It’s what we sometimes call the March 2010 Law at this website.
That is shorter than the formal title and
focuses on when the legislation became law.
It’s also called “Obama’s health care law”.
It is the Affordable Care Act of 2010, the law(s) title.

Obamacare

The term “Obamacare” was established by those who did not like and do not like what became the Affordable Care Act of 2010. The law is referred to twice as often as “Obamacare” as it is the “Affordable Care Act”, at least as seen by doing a search on the internet.

By 2011 there were differing opinions about whether or not Obamacare should be used and differing opinions about whether the term “Obamacare” would be seen historically as a positive term or a negative one.
