The White House And Republicans Erupted Into A Huge Twitter Fight Over Obamacare

Walter Hickey

Coinciding with the House's vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act on Thursday, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) promoted a hashtag on Twitter that stirred up partisan emotions on both sides of the aisle.

Issa's hashtag — #ObamacareInThreeWords — encouraged snark on both sides of the aisle. It also prompted a back and forth between the White House and House Speaker John Boehner.

Here are a few of the best tweets:
