Obama to Talk Romneycare Wednesday

The President will head to Massachusetts on the same day HHS Secretary Sebelius testifies before Congress on the ACA.

President Obama will head to Boston on Wednesday for a speech about "the importance of providing all Americans with quality, affordable health insurance and the experience in Massachusetts, which passed its bipartisan health care law in 2006," the White House said Monday.


The Affordable Care Act is nearly identical to the reforms Mitt Romney enacted as Massachusetts governor. Both rely on an individual mandate and an online exchange where consumers can shop for coverage.

In other words, Obama will be making the case that the reforms in his health care law should have bipartisan support--on the same day House Republicans on the Energy and Commerce Committee will be grilling Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius about the launch.
