Obama to discuss health care law at Faneuil Hall

Faneuil Hall is where former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney signed the state’s landmark health care law in 2006, with top Democrats standing by his side.

The Associated Press

BOSTON — President Barack Obama plans to use Boston’s historic Faneuil Hall as a backdrop for a speech touting the federal health care law.

The White House says Obama will travel to Boston on Wednesday as his administration continues to deal with issues related to the rollout of the Affordable Care Act.

Faneuil Hall is where former Massachusetts Republican Gov. Mitt Romney — Obama’s rival in the 2012 presidential election — signed the state’s landmark health care law in 2006, with top Democrats standing by his side.

White House adviser David Simas tells The Boston Globe it’s the perfect setting to show how Democrats and Republicans can work together.

Obama’s visit is planned on the same day Health and Human Secretary Kathleen Sebelius testifies before Congress on problems with the government’s health care website.
