“On the issues that matter, you don’t have to take my word for it,” President Obama told a cheering crowd in Denver, Colo., today, speaking primarily on Obamacare and women’s health issues. “You can take me at my record.”
Quite a few conservatives decided to do just that, setting the record straight on just who is making health care decisions under the Affordable Care Act.
@BarackObama You obviously didn't think of that when you forced the healthcare plan on the majority who didn't want it.

Also IPAB (aka Death Panel) RT @BarackObama: "I think there is one person to make these decisions on health care, and that is you.

At one time the White House had distanced itself from the term “Obamacare,” but today the president embraced the name.
POTUS: “I delivered on my promise to deliver health reform before the end of my first term. Obamacare. I like that name because I do care.”

If people are making their own health care decisions free of government, shouldn’t it be called something else?
@BarackObama Oh I'll decide. You can bet on that.

@BarackObama An excellent argument for repealing the OCA!
