President Obama is scheduled to hold a press briefing in the Brady Press Briefing Room at 10:15 Tuesday morning, the White House just announced.

The full press conference, the first one Mr. Obama has held since mid-January, will likely focus on the administration’s new efforts to respond to concern over the difficulty of implementing the Affordable Care Act, the president’s signature legislative achievement.


The administration Tuesday morning is set to unveil shorter forms for individuals to sign up for insurance under the 2010 health care law. The previous application was 21 pages and prompted complaints that it was too long and complex so the officials worked to winnow it down to three pages.

Mr. Obama is scheduled to make a “significant employment announcement” for veterans and military spouses with Vice President Joseph R. Biden and Jill Biden later Tuesday morning. He will then meet Mr. Biden for lunch and with Mr. Biden and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel Tuesday afternoon.
