CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee residents can expect to hear a lot more about the federal health care law from the White House in the coming weeks.
The Obama administration is planning a blitz of positive information about the Affordable Care Act and the law's various impacts in the state. The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported that the move comes as the president tries to drive up enrollment in the online health insurance changes, which kick in Jan. 1.
The move also seeks to counter attacks by Republican opponents of the law and rising public doubts about the troubled roll-out of the exchanges included in the process.
The Obama administration is pressing various statistics, including 1.4 million people on private insurance having gained coverage for at least one free preventive health care service.
