8:01 pm
gotham all in the name of this very special bat-kid. president obama is probably ready for the weekend. it's been another rough week for his health care program. today the house passed its own health care fix. it's called the keep your health plan act. the republicans backed the bill so did 39 democrats. that may be the most difficult for the president. libby casey reports. >> the mouse passed a bill that would change the health care law. say it strikes at the very heart of obamacare. >> house republicans have tried dozens of times to chip away at the health care act. >> the bill is passed. >> the republicans called the
8:02 pm
keep your health plan act obamacare fix. saying the health care plan isn't work. >> they're tired of the talk. they want people representing them. that's what we're here to do. >> president obama are announced a policy fix that americans can keep their health care. but it lets insurance companies sell plans that don't meet obamacare's pr issues. >> to sell policies that district against women that set annual caps and lifetime caps. if we continue to allow all of those practices that every american, 80, 90% of americans said they want in their health care system, then that risk pool
8:03 pm
goes away, rates go sky high and you will have raised premiums for every american in this country. >> but the 39 democrats who split from their party leaders want to be on the record as voting for fixes. the white house has threatened to veto the bill. spokesman jay carney said, it was the right fix. >> he will work with congress to do so that congress can do what it can do, legislative 30, in a owners -- legislatively, to improve the affordable care act. what he won't do is are support programs that will sabotage the bill. >> democrats won't move ahead with anything that they say will weaken the health care law.
8:04 pm
>> getting a letter saying your health care was cancelled, would be a lot different than going on the website, that's why the obama administration has made it a top priority to get that health care plan fixed, get the kings worked out. president obama has reiterated last week that's when americans will be able to get online and successfully look for their next set of health care options. >> that's libby casey reporting. meeting included ceo of cigna,ette nah, blue cross blue shield. ,. >> the website is working a lot better now than it was a couple of weeks ago. what we're going to be doing is brainstorming to make sure everybody knows what their
8:05 pm
option he are. because of choice and competition, a whole bunch of americans always see health insurance out of risk or out of reach are going to be in a position to purchase it. >> could disrupt the marketplace and end up raising rates. joining us to talk about the health care debate is louise radnofsky. it's a pleasure to have you here louise. thank you. >> thank you. >> what's the biggest challenge facing the insurance agency? >> they are worried about the competition, now that they don't base them on their medical risk, but on their age, and certain medical parameters, that's about it. the their concern so far is the technological problems that the website has had has deterred all bit the most persistent, and now
8:06 pm
what they're saying is that the presidential's proposal could further harm the exchanges because they're going to keep out a group of people whose plans are going to be cancelled and now reinstated. and that group is pretty healthy by and large. >> does the insurance industry have its own health risk? >> one thing big carriers want to do is be able to sign up people for coverage directly and administer formal announcement yet of some sort of deal around this. >> what about the people who had their insurance policies cancelled? what is the insurance industry saying about that given what the president did yesterday? >> well, everybody's waiting and seeing right now. to tell how many people whose policies were cancelled will actually see them reinstated. this depends on a couple of factors. allowing it to happen.
8:07 pm
what we are seeing that some reergts arregulators don't want. and willing to take.the president on his offer. if regulators give the green light to carriers then carriers have a decision to make and they're still weighing that too. >> help me understand this. didn't the insurance industry see this coming? apparently the white house and the president didn't see it coming. did they warn the insurance industry that this was going to happen and they would have to cancel millions of policies? >> it was something that the insurance industry had been warning about. they'd said that the rules that allow some policies that existed before 2010 to continue were very narrowly drawn and they were certainly jumping up and down saying this would lead to millions of people losing their policies. that said, it was a goal to move people out of these substart so
8:08 pm
to speak policies. a political fire storm around the cancellations, that's been much more high powered, because the exchanges weren't working so the people didn't have an opportunity to look at their alternatives. >> knows it can be very deduct and i wonder what it's going to be like for these insurance companies to reinstate some of these programs and how difficult it's going to be for the patients, for the people. >> well, it's complicated even for insurance companies to get it done. there's a very narrow time frame right now given that it's november and the end of the year is fast approaching. and this may well deter some of them from doing it anyway. what people are saying privately is it's very hard to put toothpaste back in a tube. >> how do you think it's going to wind up? >> we are waiting to see what the blarchewhat the balance is.
8:09 pm
what we've seen so far is an uptick past the point of november 2nd which is the point the administration announced the other day. we saw that in the following week with numbers that we reported on, more people seem to be coming in, you know, five-figure additional number seems to be coming in, in that week, which gives one small glimmer to the administration that perhaps maybe the first month's rollout being rocky hasn't stopped the second month from being a little bit about wert. >> we will be watching it to see if there's changes in the future. louise thanks for joik us. >> thanks john. >> turning to detroit, it was a lethal act of racism, to some, to others, a tragic mistake. either way an african american teen aged woman is dead. >> his name, thee dor wae-- theodore waefer.

8:11 pm
>> by all reports she was unarmed and no reports of entry into the home. >> toxic reports shows, there was marijuana in her system. when mcbryde's relatives say they believed this was a case of racial profiling, it incited rallies calling for social justice. shortly after waefer turned himself in mcbryde's family spoke out. >> we want to thank prosecutor's office for the thorough job that they have done to bring the charges against mr. waefer, i don't know why i'm saying mr. waefer. this monster that killed my daughter. >> you took a life, you took a beautiful life that was starting to blossom into a beautiful woman. and for that, i hope you stay in jail for the rest of your life.
