Watch Miller video on health bill signing ceremony

A clearly happy Rep. George Miller, D-Martinez, talks on video after he returns from the bill-signing ceremony today, where President Barack Obama signed historic health care legislation.

Miller, who helped write the legislation and has been advocating for many of its contents since he was elected 35 years ago, is one of a handful of people who will receive one of the pens that Obama used to sign the bill.

The congressman also talks about the receipt of a blue wristband that Sen. Ted Kennedy’s widow, Vicki, gave him in memory of her husband and the Democrats’ fight to pass health care legislation.
