Top #ObamaCareInThreeWords Tweets

The House voted on a bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, yesterday, and the Twittersphere noticed, with uncommonly long hashtag #ObamaCareInThreeWords trending through last night.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) kicked off the avalanche of left and right-wing-aimed Tweets with this:

 

Well, “folks” from all over took to Twitter to describe Obamacare in (mostly) three words. Here are some of the top Tweets from inside the Beltway.

Vince Coglianese of The Daily Caller opted to make an observation about the hashtag itself instead commenting on the healthcare bill.

 

Rep. Scott Rigell (R-Va.) decided the hashtag wasn’t long enough, so he made up a new one while dutifully informing Twitter users of the proper terminology.

 

Unfortunately for Rigell, the hashtag didn’t catch on.

WaPo blogger Greg Sargent made up a new word as to not go over the three-word limit.

Rep. Trey Radel (R-Fla.) used a rather stinging comparison to describe the bill.

 

And Andrew Kaczynski of BuzzFeed thought Radel crossed the line.

 

The White House even got in on the dorky festivities, trying to set the record straight while using unnecessary punctuation. The Tweet even included a photo of President Obama’s signature on the bill.

 

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) fired back three words of his own, which spread through Twitter with hundreds of retweets.

 

The House did end up voting for the bill to repeal Obamacare, which will now move to the Senate. Some Twitter users had predictions the repeal bill.

 

Kaczynski wasn’t finished yet, though. He decided to make his eating habits known.
