On Sunday, the House passed an extensive-health care bill that will completely overhaul the current health care system in America. Today, the Senate passed a companion bill, sending it back to the House for final approval. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the bill should have enough votes to pass. As long as the House approves the bill, President Obama is expected to sign it into law.
On Tuesday, President Obama signed the overall health care bill, which will assure that 32 million Americans will be able to receive health insurance coverage, made possible by subsidies, employer obligations, and a mandate for most Americans to carry insurance.
Some features of the legislation include:

But once all is said and done, the number of Americans without insurance will drop by over 50%, and those Americans who want to keep their current insurance policy will be able to do so.
