Happy Birthday for Obamacare?

On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) into law.  The healthcare reform law is also known as the Affordable Care Act.  President Obama and Vice President Biden gave brief remarks during the signing ceremony.  Below are some of the statements and promises made by the president to the American people on that day.  My comments immediately follow the remarks.
