Obamacare Becomes Heated Issue on Twitter
Republicans are promoting their 37th attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act — otherwise known as "Obamacare" — with the Twitter hashtag #ObamacareInThreeWords. Democrats all the way up to the White House took the hashtag and spun it in favor of the bill, turning it into a full-blown Twitter spat.
While House Republicans often attempt to repeal the ACA, such a move is an absolute non-starter in the Democratic-controlled Senate.
"We’ve got 70 new members who have not had the opportunity to vote on the president’s health care law. Frankly, they’ve been asking for an opportunity to vote on it, and we’re going to give it to them,” House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said last week.
