One does not need to be a Nobel Prize winning economist like Paul Krugman to see the achievements of Obamacare and the deathly dangers of Trumpcare.
What’s in a name? A lot, apparently. President Barack Obama embraced the Republican moniker Obamacare for his signature healthcare legislation, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, turning this slight against him into a positive statement about him: Obama cares. And indeed, he did and still does. Though this naming has not been without its challenges, namely that until very recently over one-third of Americans believed that Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act were different things.
