    It would be helpful if everyone stopped using the term "Obamacare" and called it what it is: "The Affordable Care Act." By definition, anyone who isn't a big fan of Pres. Obama will have a negative response to "Obamacare," even if they don't know what it is. They fear it's something "evil Obama" is forcing on them. But, making Care "Affordable" is language everyone can understand, and is far more positive, less scary and much harder to demonize.
