Obama Signs Fiscal Cliff Bill with Autopen

President Obama ordered "that his signature be affixed to legislation that averts the bulk of the so-called 'fiscal cliff' and prevents federal income tax rates from rising on the vast majority of Americans," Politico reports.

"The official copy of the high-profile bill was signed at Obama's direction with an autopen, a device that places a facsimile of a person's signature on a document, a senior White House official told a pool reporter accompanying the president on the second leg of his winter break in Hawaii."
