NASHVILLE (Times Free Press) -

The White House is trying to drive home in Tennessee what it says are the overall beneficial impacts of President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act with a blitz of positive information about the law's various impacts in the Volunteer State.

The move comes as Obama seeks to drive up enrollment in the online health insurance changes, which start Jan. 1, and counter recent attacks by Republicans on the law and rising public doubts about the troubled roll-out of the exchanges.

"Helping ordinary Americans and businesses take advantage of the benefits of the health care law is a top priority for the president and Democrats in Congress," the White House says in its release. "The Affordable Care Act does more than just give millions of uninsured Americans access to health insurance. It helps Americans who already have insurance feel more secure in their coverage, ensuring it'll be there when they need it. This is a pocketbook issue for many middle class families."
