This is just a mild, nonissue complaint, but I wanted to just point out:

Who was the clever fvck that decided we should call any kind of healthcare system by the person who supports it's name?

It's not Obamacare. It's not Romneycare. It's a form of Universal Healthcare. Deal with it. It's not cute and it's not clever.

I think you complain too much...

Well, I've been kind of evolving into a misanthrope lately.

Because generally universal healthcare is unfavorable to the population so tacking someone's name to the front of it associates its creator with an unfavorable idea in an attempt to discredit them.

I think it largely originates from Clintoncare/Hilarycare in the 90s.
