Watch Now: Health Care Bill Becomes Law

Published by Tanu Henry on Tuesday, March 23, 2010 at 11:54 am.

March 23, 2010 – Democrats turned the East Room of the White House into a pep rally this afternoon. Led by President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, the signing ceremony for the President Obama’s health care bill was attended by congressional leaders and Democratic members of the 111th Congress responsible for forging the comprehensive legislation. The room was filled to capacity and a camera could be seen in almost every attendee’s hand.

White House staff and media lined the walls three deep and more than 150 seats were filled with members of Congress, cabinet secretaries and special guests. The president acknowledged the widow of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.), Vickie Kennedy, and his son Rep .Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) whose name on this bill fulfills the Kennedy legacy.

The late Senator’s son will be the Kennedy of record on this historic legislation, an issue his father spent a lifetime pursuing. Another well known Kennedy also came to the White House for the signing, the daughter of President John F. Kennedy, Caroline Kennedy.

While the merits of the law will be debated for years to come, it was an extraordinary day and one I will remember for years to come.

I will be able to say, “I was there when the health care bill was signed.” I wonder if this is how folks felt when they witnessed the signing of the Civil Rights Act, the creation of Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.?

Today there is already a new acronym in Washington: “PHC,” which is short for “post health care.”

By saying that this is like the civil rights bill undermines a very important part of history. It is sad people think this way. Civil rights was about a just cause. This is about taxes and entitlments. People should be ashamed to compare the two.

These irons are top of the line in the beauty Industry and are worth every cent if you are straightening your hair. All other brands are very difficult to flat Iron.We use these in the salon and I wouln’t recomend any thing different. They heat up in a flash, and they will straighten without going over and over the hair to get it straight. for those who are on the run, and if used with silk infusion you will get a professional style in minutes.You can use these Irons to Flip your hair Style with Volume and straighten.When you purchase a chi the best infomation I can give you on getting the most out of your style is to take your hair in sections to straighten dont just straighten the top layer take small sections they come out beautifull. Yah you can buy other Irons cheaper but you will not get the same affect as the chi Iron.

This shouldn’t be compared to the civil rights era. It is a taker of rights not a giver. The government does not give you your rights. God does that.

This is an 70-680 where it is increasingly easier to tap the internet and find free 70-294 to quickly pass your CIW certification exam. Unfortunately for the 70-297
who select this option, the only thing that 70-298
will earn them, is a MCITP Exam and a worthless papered certification.
