What Change Looks Like

An assortment of United States coins, including quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies.This legislation will not fix everything that ails our healthcare system, but it moves us decisively in the right direction. This is what change looks like. In the end, what this day represents is another stone laid firmly in the foundation of the American Dream. Tonight we answered the call of history as so many generations of Americans have before us. When faced with crisis, we did not shrink from our challenge; we overcame it.

-- President Barack Obama, regarding the new healthcare bill, Democracy Now, 22 March 2010
