Guam - Reacting locally to the passage of the landmark health care legislation, Calvo's SelectCare Administrator Frank Campillo told KUAM News, "It's significant because it passed, but it's not significant in regards to controlling the spending of health care in America. I don't think this bill will control health care spending."
He continued, "It will be signed with the president; first it will go back to the Senate and the Senate will possibly make some changes, so the bill is not final yet the president still has to sign one more time after the Senate makes the changes."
A pivotal part of securing all the votes came when President Barrack Obama said he would sign an executive order that ensures no federal dollars will be used to interfere with a current ban on federal funding for abortions. The commander in chief has made health care reform a top domestic priority and even delayed his trip to Guam Indonesia and Australia to remain in Washington for this critical vote.
