Schools sending "fat letters" home with obese children

Across the country, 18 states are sending home so-called "fat letters" to alert parents their child's body mass index is unhealthy and doesn't make the grade. The notices are part of an effort to fight childhood obesity. There are plenty of parents who are angry. Just two weeks ago, Massachusetts stopped sending them home with kids due to concerns over self esteem and bullying. New York Times columnist Frank Bruni joins the panel and talks about his struggle with weight as a child.

Obamacare under fire

A report obtained by CNN shows the Obama administration was warned that healthcare.gov wasn't ready to go live. Meantime, for 15 million Americans, it looks like one of the president's mantras - 'if you like your health plan you can keep it' - may not be true. Does the White House have a message problem? The AC360 Later panel debates.

Can you keep your insurance plan?

Many Americans are receiving letters from their insurance companies, canceling coverage and offering new Obamacare-compliant policies. They often cover more, but may also cost more.  Some will also get federal money meant to make up the difference, but that's not quite the same as previous promises that nothing will change. CNN's Jim Acosta has the latest.
