The latest technical failure preventing Americans from signing up for coverage under the Affordable Care Act appears to be fixed. But now more people are finding out President Obama's claims that if you like your coverage, you can keep your coverage may not be true. Jim Acosta takes a closer look.
President Obama spoke with House Speaker John Boehner over the phone today. When both men spoke to the press after, there were few signs of progress toward ending the government standoff. CNN's Dana Bash and Jim Acosta have the latest.
Anderson discussed all of this with Democratic Strategist Paul Begala, Rich Galen who handled messaging for then House Speaker Newt Gingrich during the last shutdown and Republican consultant Alice Stewart.
CNN's Jim Acosta on the trail with Romney "there was a spring in his step," and CNN's Jessica Yellin on the trail with Obama: "It was do-over Obama today."
Jessica Yellin, Jim Acosta and Fareed Zakaria discuss attention to foreign policy in the U.S. presidential race after the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya.
CNN's John King, Dan Lothian and Jim Acosta discuss where Pres. Obama and Mitt Romney stand on the war in Afghanistan and whether the war will play a part in voters' decisions in the upcoming election.

Salt Lake City, Utah (CNN) - Utah's Republican U.S. Senate candidate, Mike Lee, is a vocal defender of what's become the bible of the Tea Party revolution: the U.S. Constitution.
"I hereby pledge to you that I will not vote for a single bill that I can't justify by the text and original understanding of the Constitution," he promised voters at a Tea Party rally this year.
But Lee, an attorney and former clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, has advocated some breathtaking changes to the Constitution.

Las Vegas, Nevada (CNN) - Nevada Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle just might be the Tea Party's biggest gamble yet.
A staunch conservative with a history of making bold and sometimes controversial comments, Angle insists her comments have been taken out of context in her campaign to oust Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in upcoming midterm congressional elections.
"I'll be a mainstream senator," said Angle.
A grandmother of 10 children who secured the backing of Tea Party leaders on her way to winning the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate, Angle has been both praised and criticized for her views.
