Obama to Pitch Affordable Care Act in Dallas Wednesday

Hoping to quell the tide of negativity surrounding his signature healthcare law, President Barack Obama will visit Dallas Wednesday to meet with healthcare navigators and local volunteers.

Obama will travel to Temple Emanu-El—off Northwest Highway—to meet with canvassers and navigators volunteering through Dallas Area Interfaith. Rabbi David Stern announced the visit in an email to congregants on Sunday evening, the Morning News reported late Sunday.

“The foundation for this event has been the vital work we have tirelessly done in social justice over many years,” Stern writes. “With our Dallas Area Interfaith partners, Temple members have advocated for Medicaid expansion and created the Durable Medical Exchange of Dallas, along with our most recent efforts to educate citizens for health care under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.”

Obama was already planning to visit Dallas for a quick fundraising jaunt.
