Obama Will Use 20 Pens To Sign Bill
President Obama will reportedly use 20 pens to sign the health care bill, more than usual. The pens will be given out as keepsakes.

7. As had Bush43, Clinton, Bush41, Reagan, and
I presume, Carter and so forth.

Traditional. Was explaining this to Mrs. ZBDent this morning.

Of course, the RW meme will be "Look at all the pens Obama's using! How much will all those pens cost?"

The real collector's item will be the pen from Bush43's one and only pre-2007 veto ...

8. I can hear it now - Out of control Gov't Waste and spending - lol.
But think of the jobs that were created to make those pens; and to deliver them.

15. because each of the pens goes to a specific person as a gift
a "commemoration" of the signing of the bill. A piece of the history.

One pen for each letter of his name ... Barack Hussein Obama ... not sure what the 19th & 20th are for.
