The President has embraced the term, but Nancy Pelosi is still a bit annoyed by that people keep referring to The Affordable Care Act as "Obamacare." The Democratic Congresswoman chided a reporter who asked her if the new law will be a "winner or loser" for Democrats facing re-election in 2014.
"I believe it's a winner, and by the way, it's called, 'The Affordable Care Act,' it's called, 'The Affordable Care Act.' I know you didn't intend any compliment, or derogatory...it's called, 'The Affordable Care Act,'" she replied.
Pelosi joked that she'd gladly tell President Obama the same thing before criticizing Republicans in the House for repeatedly attempting to repeal the law.
The Congresswoman said its opponents repeatedly try to get away from the word "affordable."
