Tennesseans show 'bittersweet' reaction to health law in Vanderbilt Poll
Mothers never stop fretting about their children even when they become adults, but Louise Hardaway worries less now that her 21-year-old son is back on her health insurance. A mandate of the Affordable Care Act allowed the Nashville woman to put him back on her employer-based plan. “He didn’t give it a second thought, but I was concerned and hoped for the best during that time,” Hardaway said. “Even though he is young and healthy, anything could happen at any time.” The Tennessean

Things could be worse; look at California
Much like the old adage that in the hospital there is always someone else who is sicker, Floridians can take some comfort (but not too much) that things could be worse. Yes, the state struggled to balance its priorities after a $2 billion budget shortfall. But we could be California, where Gov. Jerry Brown is trying to plug a $15.7 billion budget gusher of red ink and lower a skyrocketing unemployment rate. Tampa Bay Times

Great Scott, it's Gaetz!
Gaetz, the ad says, fought to reduce job-killing regulations and emphasized education. Of course, it's not unusual for lawmakers to claim they alone are responsible for policy changes, but Gaetz is striking a theme achingly similar to that of the governor. Will anyone notice? Gaetz, incoming Senate president, does not yet have an opponent. The video was done by Tampa-based The Victory Group, the same folks responsible for the epic video shown at Gaetz's designation ceremony, "From Rugby with Resolve." Tampa Bay Times

It also can be seen as a motto for the role Primerica hopes to fill following a devastating financial crisis that’s put buying life insurance and planning for retirement several notches behind keeping a household afloat for many struggling families.

Tenn. poll: A blowout wrapped in a nail-biter
In Tennessee, Republicans control the legislature, the governorship, and both U.S. Senate seats. In 2008, the presidential race there wasn’t even close: John McCain won by 15 percentage points over Barack Obama. So it comes as something as a surprise that a new Vanderbilt University poll shows Obama in a virtual tie with Mitt Romney, with Romney leading by just one percentage point, 42 percent to 41 percent.

There are numerous factors driving the new industrial revolution in the South. And it is a revolution, as this manufacturing surge that began in 2007 continues to break records year after year in the total number of large, capital intensive projects. One factor, of course, is that reshoring of facilities back to the U.S. continues to grow each year.
