Hey, President Trump: Please stop calling the Affordable Care Act “Obamacare.” The ACA had enough bipartisan support to be passed. “Obamacare” is a prejudicial term intended to discredit the act and ally latent, racist opposition to it.

Privatization has never saved the general population money. Look at the demise of the public utilities we once all enjoyed. The next item in Portland will be trash disposal.

The ACA provided millions of people with health care. Some hadn’t figured they would ever need health care when the act passed. Now they need the coverage.

    Prior to crippling government regulations and government spending, health care used to be affordable for the vast majority of Americans…

    President Trump isn’t exactly the first person to use the term “Obamacare” and there is nothing “racist” about it. Good grief is that all you have…the race card?

    Sally, so Obamacare (affordable care act) had bi-partisan support? Really, please enlighten us as no Republican voted for it. So just HOW is that bi-partisan?
