We are referring to actually creating a Universal Healthcare System, are we not? Continuing with that, it is impossible for Obama to sign into existence such a System, as he is not yet President! The current Senate does not have the power to push it through themselves if Bush vetoes (the) bill, and, therefore, only once Obama has been inaugurated can the change be enacted.
