President Obama Signs Health Care Reform Bill

WASHINGTON – MARCH 23: U.S. President Barack Obama (L) is embraced by Vice President Joe Biden before signing the Affordable Health Care for America Act during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House March 23, 2010 in Washington, DC. Biden was heard on an open microphone during this exchange telling the president, “Mr. President, this is a big (explicative) deal.” The landmark bill was passed by the House of Representatives Sunday after a 14-month-long political battle that left the legislation without a single Republican vote.
