Tim Pawlenty took a swipe at both Romneycare and Obamacare today on Fox News Sunday, dubbing the similar plans, "Obamneycare". He pointed out that Obamacare was modeled after Romneycare, stating that there is no difference between an individual mandate at the state and federal level.

 

“You don’t have to take my word for, it you can take President Obama’s word for it. President Obama said that he designed ‘Obamacare’ after ‘Romneycare’ and basically made it ‘Obamneycare.’”
 
We will probably hear the term "Obamneycare" a lot leading up to November 2012.
