Obama signs bill to avoid ‘fiscal cliff’

While in Hawaii two years ago, though, Obama personally signed legislation providing aid to first responders of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act. The White House released a photograph of the moment.

Obama landed in Hawaii in the early hours of Wednesday morning, after an overnight flight from Washington. After a brief stop at his rental home to reunite with family, he immediately launched into his vacation routines — a morning trip to the gym and later a round of golf, both on the grounds of the secure Marine Corps Base Hawaii.
