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.
But if the chance remains
to see those better days,
I'd cut the cannons down.

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.
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!
- Ecclesiastes 2:14-16

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