The best name yet for Obamacare-TNRKMA (turkey ma)

High fives to the endlessly insightful blog of John Goodman for what I believe is the best designation yet for PPACA which is also known as Obamacare.

I quote his introduction to the new name,TNRKMA.(The Thing that Nobody Really Knows Much About.)

'...what should we actually call this thing? That is, the Thing that Nobody Really Knows Much About (TNRKMA). At this blog, we have followed the convention of calling it “ObamaCare,” but that could be considered derisive. There is always “health reform,” but this bill will almost certainly be reformed many, many times, even before all of the original provisions are enacted.

On balance, I’m inclined to go with the acronym, TNRKMA — which is pronounced “Turkey Ma” (mother of all turkeys), with the N silent, or simply “Turkey,” for short.'

I tend to prefer the simpler designation, "turkey".Read his entire blog here.
