Certificate of History

When President Barack Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act of 2010, Organizing for America offered a chance for supporters to receive a certificate commemorating the historic achievement.  Naturally, yours truly signed up immediately.  It finally arrived with yesterday's mail. It's on a textured stock and features a facsimile of Mr. Obama's signature (I didn't really expect the president to hand sign all of these, but that would have been seriously sweet).

In case you don't care to click into the scanned image, here's what it says:

The Patient Protection
Affordable Health Care Act of 2010

Together, we reduced the cost of care.
We established the toughest patient protections in history.
And we achieved the dream of generations--high-quality, affordable health care
is no longer the privilege of a few, but the right of all.

"That our generation is able to succeed in passing this reform
is a testament to the persistence--and the character--of the American people,
who championed this cause; who mobilized; who organized;
who believed that people who love this country can change it."

****President Barack Obama****
