Against the background of the signing of the Healthcare Reform Bill in the USA, this video, made by the White House Press and included on their Vimeo Channel, explains the reasons behind the President using so many pens to sign legislation. As a noteworthy detail, the young boy to the left of Obama from about 2.25 in the video is an 11-year-old called Marcellus, who campaigned for Health Care Reform after his mother lost her job and health benefits due to illness and subsequently died because she was unable to afford the necessary treatments.
