Besieged President Obama heads to Boston

Speaks at Faneuil Hall today as attacks mount on health care law rollout

WASHINGTON — President Obama, on a symbolic trip to Boston’s Faneuil Hall Wednesday, will highlight the Bay State’s success at expanding insurance coverage and its status as a national model as he seeks to stem the political damage caused by the rocky rollout of his national plan.

Obama is expected to highlight the bipartisan nature of the Massachusetts overhaul and emphasize that it took many months to sign up residents, according to the White House. He will speak in the same room where former governor Mitt Romney, a Republican, signed the groundbreaking law in 2006 with the late senator Edward M. Kennedy, a Democrat, looking on.
