As an expert witness in court I am expected to tell the truth and nothing but the truth.

It is time politicians can only tell the truth. Let’s start with calling a law or a bill by its real name.

Not “Obama care” but the “patient protection and affordable health care act”

Not “death panels” but “living wills”

Etc etc.

The replacement names used are meant to stir up negative emotions.

I must tell the truth. They should be the first to tell the truth.

Obama care is everything but affordable!

@SleeplessInTexas Sorry about your friend.


I agree, and we ought to give them real names in the first place, but I doubt we could make anyone do that.

Should be mandatory that the law/act/policy name be descriptive. Citzens United and Right to Work come to mind as examples that aren't.


Any witness must tell the truth. Not just expert witnesses.

Good luck. You're assuming people actually know the real titles/names of things. Unless it's text-speak, I'm wondering if most Americans can read & write, let alone do either on a regular basis.
