President Obama Signs H.R. 3950, as Law of the Land

Washington, D.C. (Mar 23) – In a historic moment President Obama has signed H.R. 3590 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in to law.

This day moving forward, Americans will no longer be worried about losing their health care simply because they could not afford it, or be cut-off by insurance companies more concerned over the bottom-line then Americans.

In a ceremony at the White House, surrounded by the team that help make it all possible, the President signed the bill making this the most historic moment in modern day legislative achievements. It is absolutely outstanding to see that a Congressional body actually work for the people, and not simply against the people as so many have witnessed since the spring of 2001.

With every roadblock the republican party has placed on the road of progress for the American middle class, the President, Democratic leaders and members of both Houses of Congress have forged a path that shall begin a better life for the citizens of this nation.

Next stop: Unemployment Extensions, and Financial Reform both which the republican party strongly oppose. How can any one party, such as the GOP stand in the way of both assistance to American’s in need, and against a strong cause to ensure the financial industry does not once again lead this nation, and people down the path of destruction by blocking the Senate Financial Reform proposal.

Come this November we all hope this nation remembers that the GOP has in fact stood up in front of their constituents and stated, “We are against Financial Reform, and assistance to Americans in need,” and send this republican party back to the caves from which these prim donnas come.

The republicans have shown, and stated time and time again that, unemployed American’s are lazy, middle, and lower class Americans do not deserve the be able to afford the same health care as members of congress, and that they will only fight to make certain that rich financiers, wheelers and dealers are protected and financially secured by American taxpayers. Let us not forget, those that accepted TARP monies did nothing more than, turn right around and give themselves million dollar bonuses out your, the American taxpayers’ pockets, another reform the GOP opposes.

    The GOP is not a party for the people, by the people they are nothing but a “secret police force” for the rich, no matter where their income comes from… whether it is stolen from taxpayers pockets in forms of bonuses from TARP monies or back to the days of fighting communism from outside our borders by importing cocaine, traded for arms (another hidden secret of the dark side of government, the GOP) such as began in the 80′s, the GOP will send America’s middle and lower classes into the pits of hell with smiles across their faces as they run to their bank accounts with their ill got and gains

    Just a point of information for you. HR 3590 is now the law of the land. HR 4872 is the Budget Reconciliation Bill (the “fixes) which is currently being taken up by the Senate.

    I’m pretty sure this is wrong. Obama signed HR 3590 into law. HR 3590 is the senate bill. HR 4872 is the Reconciliation Bill that amends the senate bill and adds the student loan reform. HR 4872 still has to be voted on by the senate, and I haven’t seen anything about them voting on it yet. Of course I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure the senate hasn’t voted on the reconciliation package yet; therefore it is not yet law. Only the original HR 3590 bill is law.

      Thank you… I have updated the information.. I have been working on a Senate article as well.. Last evening was a late evening for here in the Northeast, we are under a flood watch, and my entire evening until 5 am this morning was spent fighting off a flood in the basement of our home… this is embarrassing

      thank you all so much for helping point that out

      Yet, one more issue I am tracking down as I “speak”… too many projects going at the same time…

      I can tell you this which, I am certain you are aware of… the House did pass and was signed by the president, a bill that gave all those an additional 30 days beyond the April 5th deadline, to file for extended benefits…

      Keeping an eye on C-SPAN, one House Democrat I believe form Texas just made mention of the need for “additional weeks” and I am following up on that right now.. keep an eye on WorldNewsVine for updates (love those plugs, huh)

    Good Point Charlie… There is an announcement regarding the expansion of broadband access to over 100 million homes to begin this year… that will bring in a lot of jobs across a wide area (mostly rural) but, it is something I am keeping my eye on..

    Republicans are for the idea that if people can work and take care of themselves, including acquiring health care, they should do so. The second part of that is government should do everything it can to promote the capitalist system we live under so that business can thrive and offer good jobs to as many people as possible. Does Obamacare do either of these things? No. This is the primary reason that Republicans are against it. Republicans believe that if someone is unable to work and take care of themselves that the government should provide care for them paid for by all those who are working through taxes. If there are large numbers of people who cannot find work that provides what they need then the governments number one job is to promote a climate where businesses can do better and offer more jobs. Republicans also believe that a certain amount of regulation is necessary to ensure business are good to their employees but which must be balanced against restricting healthy growth. – What about these ideas do any of you disagree with?
