Introducing Obamacare 2.0

According to USA Today President Obama and his aides will seek to rally public support for his embattled health care plan in the coming weeks, starting with an event at the White House on Tuesday.

Obama will promote the effort in a speech while surrounded by people who have benefited from the new law, says USA Today.

In the coming days, Obama and aides will highlight what they call successful aspects of the law. USA Today elaborates that they include provisions that prevent insurance companies from discriminating against people with pre-existing health conditions, and allow young people to stay on their parents' insurance policies until age 26.
