    How Many fucking Mont Blanc pens does it take Obama to sign his fucking name to a bill anyway?

    Obama's 22 pens stamp health care bill into law - The Oval: Tracking the Obama presidency

    22 pens really?

    Our President only has 11 letters in his name and it took 22 pens to sign the fucking bill.

    And how much did all those pens cost? Since the Obama administration was the one to figure out that both sides of a piece of paper can be written on, you'd think they should know that a pen can be used to sign a signature hundreds of times

    Don't worry. They'll throw them on eBay, make a profit and pay off the deficit

    Knowing the government, they probably paid $5,000 per pen (which retail for $250).

    You forgot the Hussein part. That is an additional 7. And the spaces between the names, that is two more. ......

    It is VERY common for president to use multiple pens when signing a bill, and has been going on for YEARS. Get over it.

    They use a different pen for each letter. And then a different pen to cross each T and to dot each I. They then hand them out as souvenirs to loyal supporters.

    Every president has done this, not just Obama, and it's no big deal. While there is plenty to get upset at Obama for, this isn't one of the things.
