As the White House races to fix the Affordable Care Act, President Obama is traveling to Cleveland on Thursday to shine a light on the economy and, in particular, the manufacturing industry he says is critical to the country’s future.

Obama will be visiting ArcelorMittal, a company that makes steel for cars, to celebrate the rebound of the auto industry since the lows of the recession, officials say. There, he will tout the surge in employment in the auto sector since the government bailed out General Motors and Chrysler – the industry has added 357,300 jobs since then, the best jobs growth since the robust 1990s.
