LARGO, Md. - The Affordable Care Act goes into effect Tuesday , and President Barack Obama remains in campaign mode, traveling the country promoting the law.
After spending Tuesday in New York with former President Bill Clinton touting what he calls the benefits of the new initiative, Obama will today travel to Prince George’s County for the same reason.
The president is set to speak at Prince George’s Community College around 11 a.m. Thursday. Obama’s final push comes as congressional lawmakers continue battling over a myriad of topics, among them a push by house republicans to defund the measure.
It's a move many see as pointless, given the likelihood for it to fail in the U.S. Senate.
As for the president's trip Thursday, Maryland has been among the most aggressive preparing for the new law's implementation through the Maryland Health Connection. Following his remarks at Prince George’s Community College, Obama will later take part in a Democratic National Committee event at the Jefferson Hotel in Washington, D.C.
