Washington (CNN)- On the same day Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is to testify on Capitol Hill about the Obamacare website problems, President Barack Obama will travel to Boston to talk about the importance of the law, a White House official confirmed to CNN on Sunday.
The event is scheduled for the historic Faneuil Hall, where then-Gov. Mitt Romney in 2006 signed the Massachusetts health care reform into law.
Obama on Wednesday is expected to discuss the ongoing efforts to fix the problems plaguing the HealthCare.gov website, the official said.
The administration has touted Massachusetts' health care law as the model for the Affordable Care Act. Officials point to that state’s experience showing how many consumers sign up for insurance only as a deadline approaches. They point out that today, 97% of Massachusetts residents have insurance.
Also this week, administration officials and Cabinet secretaries will continue a series of appearances across the country to push enrollment in 10 areas with the highest rates of the uninsured. On Monday, Cecilia Muñoz, director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, will participate in a health care enrollment event in Detroit to help connect residents with application specialists. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will travel to Atlanta on Tuesday to participate in enrollment outreach events.
Obama is also attending a fundraiser for DCCC in Weston, Ma. on Wednesday.
He'll raise funds for the DCCC alongside Steve Israel and Nancy Pelosi at the home of Alan and Susan Solomont. Alan is a major Democratic donor and former ambassador to Spain under Obama.
Tickets range in price from $16,200 for an individual to $32,400 per couple according to invitation obtained by CNN.
