During the Democratic primary elections of 2007 and 2008 then Senator Hillary Clinton and Senator Barack Obama both ruthlessly attached each others' political platforms.

Clintoncare was coined during the Clinton administration so it was clear that Obamacare was the logical counter to Senator Obana's chances of winning the Democratic nomination.

Conservatives adopted the term with highly negative connotations once Obama became the first black president of the United States.

Hillary Clinton's campaign coined Obamacare.
