It was insulting but now it’s cool.I can’t count the times I have been berated for using the term “ObamaCare” because it is demeaning to the president, it is racist, it is a hate crime, it is an unpatriotic negative term, it’s un-American , it is disrespectful and on and on. Democrats hated the term enough to even attempt to ban its use at the Montana State Legislature this last session.
The Ravalli Republic ran an article by Mike Dennison about the whole flap at the Montana legislature back in March of last year wondering if it was a slur to use the name ObamaCare. The Democrats on the Judiciary Committee caused such a ruckus over the use of the term ObamaCare that Republican Ken Peterson, who chaired the committee, told committee members they could no longer use the term “out of respect for Democratic members on the committee.” The article went on to say that:
Democrats believe “ObamaCare is a derisive, political polarizing term, used as slang, negative reference to the law. Rep. Ellie Hill, D-Missoula, said Democrats have “objected time and time again,” and didn’t see why Republicans couldn’t simply honor that objection and not use the term “ObamaCare” during committee and floor debates.”When Senator Jason Priest introduced SB 106 asking the Montana Attorney General to join about 20 other states suing the Federal Government and referenced “ObamaCare” the responses from Democrat Senator Andrew Blewett and his pack of antagonistic fellow Democrats went wild. Representative Carolyn Pease-Lopez quickly added the term is “derived from racism towards the president.
