Obama Signs Med Student's Coat: 'Go Obamacare!'

President Barack Obama praised his signature health care legislation in his own signature, the Des Moines Register reports. Obama autographed a University of Iowa medical student's lab coat with the phrase, "Go Obamacare!" after a rally in Iowa City Saturday. Here's more from the Register:
President Obama has taken to using the term "Obamacare" himself, even creating a page on his campaign website where supporters can sign a petition saying they "like Obamacare." But many Democrats, including Florida congresswoman and Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, have said the term is "disparaging" and out of bounds, preferring to call it by its abbreviated official name, the Affordable Care Act.
Whatever it's called, Obamacare is still unpopular with the majority of Americans. The latest Rasmussen poll shows 50 percent of Americans support repealing the law, while 44 percent oppose repeal.
