Obama Signs Health Care Bill into Law: On March, 23, 2010, in what the The New York Times calls "the most expansive legislation enacted in decades," President Obama signs his controversial-yet-landmark national health-care bill into law. Onlookers at the signing included Victoria Kennedy, wife of the late Ted Kennedy—who had made passing such legislation his life’s work for 40 years. How did the Vice President Joe Biden sum up the moment? "Mr. President, this is a big [expletive] deal."
