The Twitterverse helps Kathleen Sebelius come up with better names for Obamacare

During a Politico-sponsored event on Wednesday, former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius suggested a simple fix to Obamacare, which is so unpopular that 58% of Americans would like to see it repealed, according to a Fox News poll.
