Is the term "Hillarycare" typically used as a derogatory term?

I tried looking up the Wikipedia article on Clinton health care plan of 1993, but it didn't discuss the term "Hillarycare".

    Never heard the term, but obviously a dig at who wore the presidential pants back in '93 – user1873 Jul 13 '13 at 14:46
  • It wasn't so much intended as derogatory, as it was a label exclusively used by its opponents. So it acquired a negative context. – user4012 Jul 15 '13 at 3:39

It was derogatory at the time. It still is as most Republicans believe Obamacare was modeled after HillaryCare. While President Obama uses the term Obamacare in a non derogatory fashion, it is still used on the right as a derogatory term.

What sounds better, the Affordable Care Act or HillaryCare/ObamaCare?
