Good morning, I’m Melissa Harris-Perry. I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years. And like it or not, it’s indelibly printed in the pages of American history. A word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame and divide and demean. The word was conceived of by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man, to render him inferior and unequal and diminish his accomplishments.
President Obama has been labelled with this word by his opponents, and at first he rose above it, hoping that if he could just make a cause for what he’d achieved, his opponents would fail in making their label stick. But no matter how many successes that he had as president, he realized there were still many people for whom he’d never be anything more than that one disparaging word — a belief he knew was held not just by his political opponents, but also by a significant portion of the American electorate. And so he decided if you can’t beat them, you’ve got to join them. And he embraced the word and made it his own, sending his opposition a message they weren’t expecting: ‘If that’s what you want me to be, I’ll be that.’ Y’all know the word that I’m talking about. Obamacare! That’s right! I said it and I’m not ashamed, and neither is President Obama!
Because he knows that of all his victories over two terms in office his legacy is ultimately going to be remembered for this one single word.
I mean, what do you call the president who rescues the U.S. auto industry? Obamacare. What do you call the president who finally eliminates Osama bin Laden? Obamacare. What do you call the president who ends Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell? Say it with me! Obamacare.

Heard the one about the president who pulled us out of the greatest recession since the Great Depression? Yep. Obamacare. And what about the one, you know, about the president who reduced drug sentencing disparities? Obamacare. Stop if you have heard this one. A group of underpaid women and the president, who passed the pay equity law, walk into a bar — okay, so you can see where I’m going with this.
Short of bringing about world peace before he leaves office, the Affordable Care Act will loom large in the president’s legacy as the singular accomplishment of his two terms. And now following the relaunch of the new and improved and fully operational Healthcare.gov website, the president is not only owning it, but doubling down and putting a great spotlight on the Obama in Obamacare.
This week the White House announced that it’s going to be all ACA everyday from now until December 23rd enrollment deadline for coverage on January 31st. Starting with the President himself who has been pulling his best rig-raw’s you know, hustling almost everyday this week to make the hard sell on the Affordable Care Act. This is his pitch on Tuesday:

[Barack Hussein Obama II (August 4, 1961)]
I’m going to need some help in spreading the word. I need you to spread the word about the law, about its benefits, about its protections, about how folks can sign up. Tell your friends. Tell your family. Do not let the initial problems with the website discourage you
And this was President Obama on Wednesday:
I’m a need you all to spread the word about how the Affordable care act really works, what it’s benefits are, what it’s protections are, and most importantly how people could sign up. I know people call this law ‘Obama Care’ and that’s okay. I’ll – uh – cause I do care. And – I do.
And this was President Obama on Thursday:
My advise to everybody is, the website is now working. Go to Healthcare.gov, take a look for yourself, in your state what’s available to you; there is no reason why you should not have health insurance.

See I wasn’t exaggerating – everyday he’s hustling and over the next 3 weeks if you go a day without hearing from President Obama on Obamacare, you can be sure it’s because he’s passed the mic to Democratic members of Congress, the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee or advocacy organizations to help him deliver his message. And if you miss the message on television, the White House has promised that you will find it on Facebook, Twitter and even in your inbox. After an early fumble with the roll out, this is President Obama on offence driving hard to penetrate the DOP defensive line and he is playing to win.
