WASHINGTON - After months of political bickering between Democrats and Republicans over health care reform, President Obama signed health care overhaul into law today.

A House vote on Sunday sent the 10-year, $938 billion bill to the president.

Over time, it will extend health coverage to $32 million uninsured Americans.

No Republicans and 34 Democrats voted against it.

The GOP argued the bill would drive the U.S. economy deeper into debt.
