Washington (CNN) -- President Obama on Tuesday signed into law a sweeping health care reform bill, the nation's most substantial social legislation in four decades, achieving a top priority of his administration.
Greeted by applause from enthusiastic supporters, he said, "Today after almost a century of trying; today, after over a year of debate; today, after all the votes have been tallied, health insurance reform becomes law in the United States of America."
The president said he is confident the Senate will improve the health care reform law swiftly. He said some health care reforms will take some time to phase in, but others will "take effect right away."

Fire up the crackpipe and Air Force One. Here we go!
Yeh, his campaign tour has worked so well in the past 6 months...NOT!
Go for it Obama. Keep p!$$ing off (and on) the people.
Community Organizer at work.
Guess that executive order will just have to wait. LOL
Why? SFNan says this is what the people want - so why is a PR tour necessary?
Screw you BO!!!
“Yeh, his campaign tour has worked so well in the past 6 months...NOT!”
Yup, keep the Kenyan talking and watch his poll numbers do the
Obortion Limbo! How low can you go!
Cut off $600.00 per year to Direct TV today. I told them Obama and Nancy have left me no money for luxuries.
I meant to do this before, but it was a good day for the TV to die.
Basically an admission that he can’t govern, he can only campaign.
I don’t get it - WHY is he going “on the road” AFTER signing the bill. Why bother??
I believe he’s trying to minimize the UPCOMING SLAUGHTER the DemocRATS may face in the 2010 elections. He still believes his own press that he can make people faint at the sound of his “silky” voice and that he can turn crap into candy!
I dont get it - WHY is he going on the road AFTER signing the bill. Why bother??
That’s what I wonder, too.
We are dead broke and he’s going to waste MORE money that we don’t have.
Every time this man farts the US credit card goes up.
Oh, well...I suppose it’s better than working, eh?
I can’t wait until we have a grown-up in office.
Why promote it now!?!?!
If it was so damn good, then why didnt this bastard take the time to outline every frigging provision in it before? That way he wouldn’t have had to bribe people to vote for it, it would have had 88% support and would have passed last summer!
The Intolerable Acts are also known as the Coercive Acts.
They have conveniently attempted to quell their main base, THE COLLEGE STUDENTS, by attempting to appease the effects by “the age 26 rule’, to prevent uprising and, or the “Kent State Effect.” (And also the so called college loan takeover.) One may add to this what they have been indoctrinated with also.
70% of real Americans did not want, AND therefore were NOT REPRESENTED in this so called “bill”.
So we now see the reason for the “COMPLIANCE CRUSADE”, beginning in Iowa, which is an attempt to quell the 70% before the big bureaus kick in. But, Mommy and Daddy in this 70% aren’t buying it and WILL NOT.
By my timeline, we are now in-between The Olive Branch Petitions....(WE HAVE TRIED AGAIN, AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN , on the local levels, on the regional levels, and by great PERSONAL expenditures, personal expenses not paid for by The State Politburo. And now this past weekend another personal attempt Olive Branch Petition right at the steps of the Capital itself, OUR CAPITAL, once again distanced, misstated, or ignored by the arms of the new Federal Politburo.).
So we are somewhere in between “The Olive Branch Petitions” and “The Declaration of Arms”
American CITIZENS, as Thomas Paine would say, WILL NOT, AND CANNOT, SUPPLY THE MEANS IN WHICH THEY WILL THEN BE OPPRESSED.
Well, so long as he’s out gloating on his victory lap he isn’t working on further damage to the Republic.
“He’d have better luck selling $h!t sandwiches outside the White House.”
not even if state troopers flagged down the traffic for him...
The last time I saw a President try to “unburden” anyone was President Gaius Baltar before the colonization of New Caprica and that did not work out very well.
Off to sell his Kool Aid.
Tea partiers should be at every stop, booing the imposter back to Kenya!!
He's got his dates wrong. The Communist Manifesto was published in 1848.
Obama...”THE TIME FOR TALK IS OVER”...okay, maybe not. what a fraud.
Isn't it time to tell this Johny One Note that we have a few other things that need attention - like JOBS, for starters....
He's going to the Kennedy Space Center on April 15 to expound on his great new ideas for the space program = the one that will put 7,000 of them at the base out of work in Sept and result in 36,000 losing their jobs in the area (businesses dependent on the Space center) plunging the area in to 15-20% unemployment - while he has instructed NASA to send the saved money to ‘predominantly Muslim countries, starting with Indonesia (the country he considers home)...to train them and bring them into the space industry - teach them how to build rockets too - how many more Irans?
“Some 7,000 space industry workers will lose their jobs in Florida...”
Repeat that in Houston, also losing thousands of jobs: a democrat
Send the money to the Muslims -
did the same thing back in November, couple of core 2 quads filling up a 42 inch big screen, much better, IMO, nothing like FR on a big screen..and I was at over a grand a year for DTV...give it a week or so...you wont miss it..
Hussein and campaigning go together like Mohammed and underage boys.
He lives for it.
This reminds me of OJ going out to find the real killers. BO will play every golf course in America until he’s convinced everyone that this bill is a good one!
[Community Organizer at work.]
Yep and our taxpayer $$$ being used to try and salvage the Rat party and Obama Presidency.
Bourgeoisie du monde, unissez-vous!
When does the no existing pre-conditions kick in? My company’s owner dropped by my office and is no considering no company offered insurance as all.
I haven’t heard.
This group is so screwing the Congress. Remember just a couple of days ago with demon pass. The whole purpose was to make certain the Senate would pass the fix bill. Guess what. Doesn't looks like anyone cares anymore. Bill is passed and nothing else to see here.
The White House is happy with the Senate bill and no energy will be put in to get the fix bill approved in the Senate (as is) or back in the House if the Senate makes any changes. And, no one will call him out on it.
Priceless. Our only hope is that they will remember this when he crams through cap and tax and amnesty. (Wishful thinking)
I don’t get how he could have signed it already? Doesn’t it still have to go back to the Senate...and...I read that if they change so much as a comma, it will have to go back to the House??
If booers with NO signs show in force at Obomba Star Spangled speeches there may also be AK47s in his motorcade!
I meant to do this before, but it was a good day for the TV to die.”
You can get your TV free online - turned my satellite off in Jan 2009. (They will give you at least a 6 month 'extension on suspension" so's you "won't lose your account and can have it turned back on . they "extened my 6-months" 3 x's now, in hopes of luring me back. Nope. gonna keep that money.) Love that money in MY pocket - now watch my news free and my shows without commercials - so only half the time to watch - and watch them on MY time schedule. (Isave up 3-4 weeks of "24" so's I can watch them all in a row ;o)...)
here's a few links to start with
for opinion shows like Beck/Greta/Bret - scroll all the way to bottom - they sill be a day delayed.
We were able to watch Fox news live up until about a month ago. All other news outlets are still available - but FOX has been been blocked for live showing. Hmmm? But a day late is still better then the others and CHEAPER than paying for cable/satellite...(and you can still get on time clips on the net)
The dog and pony show must end.
In case you missed the first 100+ speeches and don’t understand what he is doing for all of you, he is on the road to explain it to you idiots again./s
This is the senate bill that already passed the senate on christmas eve and the house this last sunday....
You’re referring to the reconciliation bill in the senate now waiting on their debate/vote and if they change one thing....THAT bill (the amends the one signed today) goes back to the House....
I so hope he makes a swing by Austin.
For some dang reason, I just can’t get it straight ;)
Senate passes bill 12/24...it goes to House. So, are you saying that the House just pass the EXACT same bill already passed in the Senate?
thanks for your patience.
“I so hope he makes a swing by Austin.”
I doubt he’ll pass through Dallas.
Well it is easy to sell a shit sandwhich when can force the people to buy it. The Obama Healthcare program is a Shit sandwhich!
