Democratic campaign embraces ‘Obamacare’
President Obama’s re-election campaign has lifted an unofficial ban on using the opposition’s derisive term for his health care law.
Democratic activists have been chanting “We love Obamacare” in front of the Supreme Court this week during oral arguments.
And the campaign is selling Tshirts and bumper stickers that proclaim “I like Obamacare.” Lori Lodes, who supports the law, said the name “just rolls off the tongue much easier.”
But no presidential campaign makes such a move lightly. Mr. Obama’s campaign is trying to use the weight of his opponents’ rhetoric against them.
Deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said the strategy “meets the voters where they are” and shows Mr. Obama cares. Bureau. Mr. Brown’s new duties require him to work two full days a month and up to two weeks during the summer, a schedule that applies to all National Guard members.
Mr. Brown has served in the National Guard for 33 years.
