Who signs bills so that they can become law?

The President signs a bill into law after it has been voted on by both the House and Senate. The President does have the option to veto the bill or refuse to sign it.


Who passes bill in the US?

A bill can be proposed in either house of Congress (the Senate or the House of Representatives). It is voted on in the house in which it is proposed; if it passes, it is sent to the other chamber of Congress, where it can be edited, amended, and voted on. If it is passed in the second house of Congress, then it is sent back to the first house to approve any changes that are made. If there are significant differences, sometimes a committee is formed between the two houses to iron these out. Once the bill has been approved in identical forms in both houses of Congress, it is sent to the President. If he signs it, it becomes law; if he vetoes it, it is sent back to the house of Congress where it originated. If it passes by a 2/3 vote in each house, then it becomes law without the president's signature.

Why would we impeach obama for what reason?

1. Only the House of Representatives can impeach the President. 2. The president must first break a federal law in order to be impeached. As of right now only two presidents have ever been voted on by the House of Representatives to be impeached and the House voted against it. Unless President Obama breaks a federal law, it is impossible for the House of Representatives to impeach him.
