Obama signs healthcare reform bill, selling measure to the public is next

Washington Post, March 24, 2010

During a ceremony at the White House, President Obama signed the contentious healthcare reform bill into law on Tuesday. The event provided clues about how the administration plans to sell the measure to a skeptical public: as a moral necessity of historic proportion, the Washington Post reports. Obama told his audience of allies that "we are not a nation that scales back its aspirations." But his central challenge remains convincing the nation that it can afford to help all, even at a time of rising debt, high unemployment, and two wars, the Post reports.
