What did Obama sign?

Too many journalists and news agencies have neglected to include, or do not provide, any reference to the name and legislative number of the healthcare reform bill signed by Obama on Monday, 3/22/10. So here it is:

H.R. 4872 - "Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act of 2010" - announced here:

Read the Full text of the bill here [PDF]. CORRECTION: This is NOT the full text as the site states. It is simply 150 pages of the Act of Reconciliation.

SO WHICH ONE DID HE SIGN? SURPRISE! It's still not quite hammered out. However, the version of H.R. 3590 passed by the Senate on 12/24/09 appears to be THE bill which the president signed this week, at least according to the Democrats.Senate.Gov site.

Read all 2,409 pages here [PDF].

Isn't this fun? Gag.
