Saying it all: Historic health reform signing
Watched the reform bill signing ceremony live. Swear I had chills and got a little teary. So many, worked so hard, for so long to make this happen. These quotes from the signing say it all.
"All of the over-heated rhetoric will finally confront the reality." ~ President Obama.Damn straight. Of course the tradmed is tittering over the inadvertent pickup of Biden's remark on the mic but the mood on twitter among reform proponents echoes mine - right on Mr. Vice President. As my new internet crush Ken Bazinet said, "Joe Biden is a master of the simple declarative sentence and speaks my language."
"This is a big fucking deal." ~Vice President Joe Biden, *whispering privately* to President Obama at the beginning of the health care reform signing ceremony.
Later, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs tweeted, "And yes, Mr. Vice President, you're right..."
I'm betting Ken is the only one in the tradmed who isn't going to make a big deal of Biden's F-bomb. He doesn't even mention it in his co-authored piece at the NY Daily News.
Update: All teary again. This just in before I even posted. Rep. Patrick Kennedy left a note on Ted's gravesite: "Dad, the unfinished business is done."
