Health Care Bill Passes

It was a close victory for President Obama, but a victory nonetheless.

“We pushed back on the undue influences of special interests,” he said. “We didn’t give in to mistrust or to cynicism or to fear. Instead, we proved we are still a people capable of doing big things.”

He staked his young presidency on the outcome of this vote. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a final pitch for the bill, saying the president’s economic agenda is at stake.
