The Presidential Planner

From Sunlen Miller:

President Obama will travel to Iowa City, Iowa, today, hitting the road to sell the health care bill signed into law on Tuesday.

In a mid-afternoon speech at the University of Iowa Field House, the president is expected to highlight what immediate reforms Americans will be able to feel this year in the nation's health care system.

"I think the president believes it is important to continue to talk about the many aspects of the law that will do precisely what he said they're intended to do, help small businesses that provide health coverage for their employees," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Wednesday, previewing the trip.

In May of 2007, then-Senator and presidential candidate Obama first announced his health care plan in Iowa City, so today is something of a victory lap for the administration.

The president is expected to return to Washington, DC, in the early evening.
