President Obama / AP

The battle over the new health care law goes on, including what name it should have.

President Obama told Democratic donors Monday night that critics won't be using the term Obamacare much longer because it will be too popular with the American public.

"In five years it will no longer be called Obamacare, because when something is working ... there will be a whole renaming process," the president said.

Obama - who signed the Affordable Care Act in 2010, but has also used the term Obamacare on occasion - joked that the future name change will be like the one given to the Washington airport, now named for former president Ronald Reagan.

"I don't know if it will be 'Reagancare,' but it will be something different," Obama said of his signature piece of legislation.

Republicans, meanwhile, plan to campaign against the health care law in this year's congressional elections, hoping to take control of the U.S. Senate. Republicans say the law will lead to higher health costs and burdensome regulations in the years ahead.
