Congratulations to the President, the Speaker of the House, the Majority Leader of the Senate, the Committee Chairs, the Democrats who voted for health reform, and all the people everywhere who worked to make this moment happen – especially the late Ted Kennedy. In the months between now and November 3, people everywhere will come to see that this is a seismic shift in American politics and that this bill represents genuine positive change. And with this achievement, we now have the opportunity to build on a new foundation and improve the structure of health care each year. All in all a remarkable piece of history tonight.
Update: TPM has the list of who got the 20 presidential pens at today’s signing ceremony. My favorite is #19.
