Short for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, a healthcare legislation passed in 2010 and signed into law by President Barack Obama.
Most people refer to the PPACA as "Obamacare".
|2.||one fucking guy|
Just one person doing something that needs many people to help with.
OFG = one fucking guy
So our Congress sucks. I'm just one fucking guy, do you think I can do anything about it?
So Congress is being bribed left and right by corporations. Our democracy is disappearing, but I'm just one fucking guy. Do you think I can do anything about it?
I'm just OFG, that's not going to go far with the fucked up mess we have in Congress.
Congress passed the Affordable Care Act. It created the new IRS where you have to buy insurance from the companies you hate. I'm just one fucking guy and can't stop this insanity without help.
The Affordable Care Act is bullshit. Congress says don't raise taxes, just make everything privatized so the people pay more. I'm just one fucking guy and can't stop this insanity without help.
a publicly funded election.
an election that is paid for by taxpayers without advertising paid for by corporations.
an election where politicians can't use bribes to pay for campaign advertising.
an election where multimillionaires can't buy their way into office.
If we had a socialized election, maybe a lot of the money we spend on stuff like cell phones, internet, cable and cars wouldn't be used to pay off politicians.
Socialized elections are a lot like socialized armed services. They're way better than vigilantes.
If you had a socialized election, Citizens United wouldn't be allowed to buy your vote with a phony ad.
Socialized medicine and socialized elections are great because they both would save the American People trillions of dollars.
Isn't a socialized election like a "government takeover" of elections? Yes, you fucking dope.
Do you mean if we had socialized elections, there wouldn't be all the bullshit ads on TV by politicians? YES
A bill passed by Barack Obama and his cronies, that under the guise of "liberalism" and "equality" will FORCE all Americans to own health insurance at WHATEVER price the insurers want us to pay.
Synonymous with the BIPARTISAN corruption of the free market that has been going on in America for several decades now.
Me: ObamaCare sucks.
Stupid brainwashed liberal: Why? It will make healthcare affordable and bring us closer to the great nations of Europe.
Me: Really? It'll make healthcare affordable? So if you have supply and demand, and the government forces demand to become EVERYONE in the United States, and supply stays the same, prices go down?
Stupid brainwashed liberal: You must be a capitalist pig, then! And by the way, it's called the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
July 21, 2012 Urban Word of the Day
A fundamental belief of Mitt Romney's, based on mistaken understanding of an issue (one of many).
"Romney wants to eliminate President Obama’s Affordable Care Act, and stated that doing so will IMPROVE racial inequities in healthcare?! What a Mittconception - actually said that at the NAACP Annual Convention too!!"
"Mitt Romney says he's unemployed? Dude, that's another Mittconception. He has no idea what it's like to depend on a weekly paycheck."
The Affordable Care Act limits insurance premiums and mandates personal coverage. It's basically identical to RomneyCare, enacted by Mitt Romney in 2006.
The mandate was originally proposed in the 1990s by Newt Gingrich and the Heritage Foundation, as a free market response against Hillary Clinton's plan.
ObamaCare is RomneyCare.
ProTip: If it's based on for-profit insurance companies, it's not "socialized medicine".
