The best euphemisms for victims of Obamacare losing their insurance plans

posted at 9:21 pm on November 4, 2013 by Mary Katharine Ham

Like my first installment, “The best euphemisms for Obama’s giant ‘if you like your plan you can keep it’ lie,” this will be updated to reflect new euphemisms as the story progresses. Tweet or e-mail with additions to the list.

1. Paul Waldman of The American Prospect

“phony Obamacare victims”

“exemplars”

2. Sam Stein, The Huffington Post

“anecdotes”

3. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, head of the Democratic National Committee

“minutiae”

4. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)

“a small number in the private market”

5. The New York Times

“overblown controversy”

6. Jay Carney

“5% of the population”

people with “crummy plans”

Update:

7. The New York Times (via @justkarl)

“the relatively small part of America that the Obama administration did not talk about while campaigning for the Affordable Care Act”

I guess O’s right. We all should have Cadillac health insurance policies to include psych counseling and alcohol treatment. We’re all going to need it before he’s done.
