Here's How the GOP Wants to Replace Obamacare
First the Supreme Court has to overturn Obamacare's federal subsidies. Then the Republicans will go to work. No one outside the Court's walls knows if it will issue a devastating blow to the Affordable Care Act, but Republicans have a strategy to capitalize on it just in case. They feel fairly confident thatKing v. Burwellwill go their way—i.e., that the justices will say the law does not allow subsidies for people who buy insurance on federal exchanges —and they have a response ready. National Journal

U.S. Supreme Court reverses Ala. redistricting ruling
A U.S. Supreme Court reversal of a district court's upholding of Alabama's 2012 redistricting plan could have a huge impact on the 2012 elections or no impact at all. While proponents of the suit said the decision could bring a number of different remedies, Republican leaders said they expected the ruling would not lead to redoing elections and would likely lead to no changes at all.

 Top Ten Places in the South for Relocating California Companies

Just look around at what's happening in the aerospace industry in the American South. Aerospace is really making a move to become one of the region's top two industry sectors. It’s not there yet, but if large project counts are any indication, aerospace may soon challenge the petrochemicals sector as the second largest industry in the region.

That industry hasn't been challenged much for 25 years in this region, or since we’ve been counting.

Want proof we've been chasing ghosts in China for years? Okay, go ahead and name a Chinese brand that's made in the South? Tick. . .tick. . .tick. Give up?

If you have ever seen one of my presentations, then you know about the word "reshoring" and how that phenomenon has lifted the spirits of even the most skeptical Southerners regarding the future of the region's economy. After all, in the last four decades, manufacturing has suffered a bloodletting never before seen in U.S. history. The biggest factor behind the slow and long meltdown that began in the 1990s was the herd mentality to offshore manufacturing capacity to cheaper locales, primarily by U.S.-owned companies.
