President Barack Obama Signs Historic Health Care Reform Bill

Still loving my President....

From AP...

Claiming a historic triumph that could define his presidency, a jubilant Barack Obama signed a massive, nearly $1 trillion health care overhaul on Tuesday that will for the first time cement insurance coverage as the right of every U.S. citizen and begin to reshape the way virtually all Americans receive and pay for treatment.

After more than a year of hyperpartisan struggle — and numerous near-death moments for the measure — Obama declared "a new season in America" as he sealed a victory denied to a line of presidents stretching back more than half a century. Democratic lawmakers cheered him on, giving the White House signing ceremonya rally-like atmosphere as they shouted and snapped photos with pocket cameras or cell phones.

So why am I NOT surprised that the Republicans are behaving like Klansmen (and women)...SMDH...Hell, they've be behaving that way ever since his name was put on the ballot. As a currently uninsured American, I am breathing a sigh of relief at this bill...It's a bad feeling when you hurt yourself and you have to make a decision that comes down to going to a hospital for emergency care OR paying your rent.....

It should NEVER, EVER come down to that choice....we live in one of the richest countries in the world....healthcare should be equal and available to ALL Americans....not just the folks who can afford it nor should the quality of your care come down to what you can afford to pay. Profits should NEVER come before the people.

Now that they realize that the fear-mongering and race-baiting is not going to work....it will be interesting to see how they will try to attack him next.

AGREED! I pray that God continue to lead Barack Obama, and ALL of our leaders that are responsible for making decisions that affect us all. Nothing is going to work in our favor if the government can't be unified regardless of race or political parties.
