Can President Obama keep his promises on health care?

Many Americans who want to keep their current insurance coverage are now finding out that they can't. Did President Obama know this would happen when he was selling the Affordable Care Act? Should he have known? Former Vermont Governor Dr. Howard Dean debates those questions with the Faith and Freedom Coalition President Ralph Reed.

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.

White House responds to Gary Tuchman's report on Superstorm Sandy victims

Last night on AC360, Gary Tuchman's report featured the Camaradas from Staten Island, New York, one of the families still struggling one year after Superstorm Sandy struck. They met President Obama after losing their home in the storm, and they personally asked for help. Now the Camaradas are unable to get a government loan to rebuild their home because they don't have the required flood insurance, which they are unable to afford.

Today, the White House responded to Gary's report:

“A year ago, Hurricane Sandy devastated communities up and down the east coast, requiring a massive response, recovery and rebuilding effort.  A year later, that effort continues, but as the President has made clear, we know there is more work to do. There are homes to rebuild, businesses to reopen, and the federal government will continue to stand with the impacted communities every step of the way.

The administration has provided assistance to more than 230,000 people and small businesses through FEMA, Small Business Administration and the Department of Labor.  The administration has also announced or paid out nearly 40 billion in funds, with billions more for recovery funds being made available.  We will continue to work with residents in the impacted area to ensure they have access to every resource available as we recover and rebuild, and that process will continue in the months and years to come.”
