Thank you Mr. President . For ONCE, the government cares about the people as humans, not sheep.

Ms. Palin, here's some "changey hopey stuff" for ya!
Sweet justice. How's that crow tasting GOPers? I know...it can be a little tough. You might want to try marinating it in all your salty tears.
Ram it down their throats, Mr. Prez. Oh no, it's a socialist takeover, run for the hills!!! Choke on it, neoclowns. Have a nice day!
Thank you Mr. President!
They there are.....look at them! The architects of the destruction of the economy. Now just add Geithner and Bernanke to the picture and it's almost complete. The puppets doing the bidding of the elite.
A bright moment for America! This is change we can believe in. It took real courage from Democrats to finally do the right thing for the people. Thanks to all of you who gave us this moment. God bless you from this small business owner!
It's been a long time since I have been this proud of our country and president.
Great job! BWHAHAHAHA Republicans How does it feel to be LOSERS!!!!!
This is a wonderful day for all hard working people who do not have insurance and for America. Thanks for not giving up on Health care reform.
I find the GOP hypocrisy very entertaining. For example, they are quick to reject this bill, but they are no doubt quick to take advantage of Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security benefits later the same day. For those who remember, the GOP hate machine voted a resounding NO against these programs as well.........throwing out words and phrase like communism, socialism, and end of America. It's now wonder why their party is shrinking into obscurity. BYE BYE RNC.
It's way to early for anyone to be shouting too loudly for or against this. No one really knows how this will play out and how it will impact us and the overall economy.
Mr. President and Congress,
Thank you for the leadership and courage to pass such a landmark piece of legislation. The bill is not perfect in it's current for but it is a great leap forward.
It's great to see that one political party is actually doing something in Washington.
Obama just signed the end of the Democratic party, the mandate for the November election for Congress; hold the elected officials that voted for the health care bill accountable, put them in prison for crimes against the American people.
Just an FYI, it's not a bill.
IT'S THE LAW.
