LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Obamacare? Trick names don't help voters

Many politicians are trashing Obamacare.

What is it? The program was enacted by Congress, not President Barack Obama, and should be entitled Congress Care. Many of the features that Obama asked for were axed by Congress.

So, again, what is Obamacare? It is a trick name to turn voters off without them even knowing what they are really against.

I would appreciate some of the Obamacare opponents listing the top 10 things about the bill that they oppose and the advocates listing the top 10 things that they approve so uninformed voters can make up our mind.

We should not be deciding our future on trick phrases.
