morning." happy halloween. >> happy halloween and good morning to you. we begin with the controversy obama care moving beyond >> sources tell cbs news those are costing more than a billion dollars. >> good morning to those of you in the west. that is $1 billion with a b to pay for obama care websites in 15 states. that huge price tag is being paid for by the federal government courtesy of taxpayers and some of the websites struggle to get off the ground. with unusable by most administrative officials pointed to efforts in the state and call it success. >> they are eager to enroll folks and that is going smoothly. >> reporter: people in some of the states may disagree with how smoothly it is going. one thing sure the
7:04 am
federal tax dollars are pouring in. a cbs news analysis shows the 15 states opted to set up exchanges are spending more than $1.1 billion to launch and implement the websites. california has dedicated $359 million while new york is spending $161 million. in kentucky it is $100 million and in oregon the price tag is $50 million. the president has pointed to oregon which has enrolled 56,000 people in medicaid to argue things are working. >> that is 56,000 more americans who now have health care. that doesn't depend on a website. >> reporter: it is a good thing because oregon's website doesn't work. the new medicaid enrollments came through the mail. the state website has yet to enroll a single person. clay johnson is a former member of president obama's technology
7:05 am
team. >> what we have done is created systems that enable this level of waste. >> reporter: he links federal rules that favor large government contractors who win out over and over like cgi which won bids in five different states to help develop websites the same company under fire as its role as the lead contractor for the federal website. >> cgi federal had contractors with five different states. something tells me they got paid five times for some of the same code. >> kentucky is seen as a model. other states say the website is now underway. it goes back to the money. why are taxpayers forking over more than $1 billion on different state websites that are going to end up looking pretty much the same? >> thank you. you saw kathleen sebelius in the report. she testified for 3 1/2 hours
7:06 am
yesterday at a house committee hearing. she said americans trying to use the health care website are having in her words a miserably frustrating experience. >> let me say directly to these americans. you deserve better. i apologize. >> michelle snyder is responsible for debacle. >> excuse me. michelle snyder is not responsible for the debacle. hold me accountable. >> you accepted a risk on a computer that put personal financial information at risk because you did not have the most basic end to end test on security of the system. >> i don't want to turn over anything that is not confirmed and reliable. that's what -- >> but that data out there exists. >> insurance companies cancel individual policies year in and year out. some people like to drink out of a red solo cup and not a crystal
7:07 am
stem. you are taking away their choice. >> sebelius said hhs will meet a november 30 deadline to work out all of the bugs. in boston president obama offered regrets yesterday for problems with >> there is no excuse for it. i take full responsibility for making sure it gets fixed asap. we are working overtime to improve it every day. >> the president defended his health care law. he believes critics are not telling the whole story. john dickerson is in washington. good morning. how does the president get on top of this? >> well i think he gets on top of it by having a website that actually works. most obviously that is because he doesn't want the biggest public manifestation of his signature law, he wants it not to be a glowing mess. he wants it to actual work so there can be the flood that they hope of good stories of people
7:08 am
signing up that is good for policy reasons because it means the law will be working but from a public relations standpoint they can say the promises are turning out to be true. here are people signing up and premiums are lower and they are happy. >> not all promises are true. he has had to modify some of them. did that put his credibility at risk? >> right. the promises were always at issue with the law. the president made promises and people didn't trust him. that is why the question of keeping your doctor is so important. the white house says that only applies to five percent of the population. if you think about when this law was being sold the president said that over and over again. it was the one piece of information people took in. the argument was this. i'm unleashing this chaotic new program but for you who have
7:09 am
health insurance it is okay. things won't change. now that things are not turning out as the president promised even people who have their own insurance have worries. they think that this new law as it goes into effect is going to somehow effect them. that is the real political damage that is possible when these promises don't turn out to be true. >> you point out it is more than the glitches of the website but the substance of the promises the president made. he said no one will take away your insurance no matter what. yesterday in boston he said for the vast majority of people who have health insurance that work you can keep it. he needs qualifiers in the new statement. >> exactly. and the qualifiers are what is the problem here. there were a lot of promises. all throughout this law the president said just trust me it will get better. they were hoping once the website was launched that you would have data and real people saying it does get better. now that that is not happening it is a problem. >> on these new poll numbers
7:10 am
that shows the president's disproval ratings quite high his approval rating lowest ever. is this more than just the second term curse that a lot of presidents experience? >> it is a result of a number of things. people think the country is not going in the right direction and all of the things they see the president doing aren't related to making the country go in the right direction even if it is dealing with the government shutdown. it doesn't mean they think the president is doing a great job. the approval rating of the president doesn't matter so much for him. the worry is for democrats up for reelection in 2014. >> i was stunned that for the first time majority of americans no longer say they belong to neither party. people don't identify themselves as republican or democrat. people are more dependent now. a new report says the national security agency is monitoring e-mails and other information on google and yahoo.
7:11 am
the "washington post" says the agency tapped into cables around the world. that is according to secret documents from nsa leaker edward snowden. the nsa is rejecting allegations that it spied on the vatican. officials say the story from an italian magazine are not true. the boston red sox are world champions once again. they beat the st. louis cardinals last night 6-1. it is boston's world series win. mark strassmann is inside fenway park. >> good morning, charlie. what a night here in fenway park as inning by inning pitch by pitch the crowd in here stood up and got louder waiting for the magical moment. >> the red sox are world champions! >> bedlam boston the final pitch
7:12 am
with koji uehara thousands of fans poured into the streets to celebrate the historic championship. it is the first time in 95 years the red sox have won the world series in fenway park. david ortiz was the series mvp. >> this is for you, boston. >> reporter: outside fenway park groups of fans ran through the streets jumping on top of cars trying to push some over and even lining up at the finish line of the boston marathon where tragedy struck six months earlier. ever since the bombings last april the motto for the team and this city has been boston strong. the red sox success symbolizes the city's resilience. players grew beards all season long through the playoffs and turned the baseball world upside down. >> to these guys in uniform to be able to come to work with them every day to see how they have prepared the work that they put in and to share it with
7:13 am
everybody here the greatest fans in the sport, it is one heck of a night. >> you can't get much better than that. >> i think this city loves us. we love the city. i think it is special. boston strong. we have come a long way since that marathon. this whole city has. everybody is here together tonight. this is a special moment for us and i hope a special moment for the fans. >> will you keep the beard? >> we'll see. >> reporter: later the city of boston will announce details of champion parade to be held saturday. and fans are getting used to winning. >> so great. >> it is unbelievable. for anybody who loves baseball even big papi had a phenomenal series. this was such a team victory. >> it was great for boston. my husband is for boston. we root for the red sox.

7:15 am
potential for thunderstorms is there, as well. we think about two plus inches around shreveport. potentially higher in louisiana. more than an inch possible in areas. the yellow shaded area the potential for severe weather today. potential for hail strong winds and even an isolated tornado. expecting chilly rainy, windy conditions across the center part of the country. looks pretty good out to the west and pretty decent in florida. >> thank you. in chicago delta airlines passengers are back on their way this morning after an emergency landing. normally we might be hearing stories of tense moments. as john blackstone showed us flyers enjoyed this detour. >> reporter: for passengers on a flightt that was 12 hours late arriving in san francisco they were in surprisingly good
7:16 am
spirits. >> it has been really nice. how many of us have been to alaska. >> ever been there before? >> no. never been on my bucket list. i can add it to my bucket list and cross it off. >> reporter: there was almost nothing in this community except a run way left over from world war ii. the 167 passengers and crew were quickly welcomed by the vastly outnumbered towns people. >> we met a couple that had newly adopted a baby girl from china. and which captured the imagination and the hearts of all of the kids. >> that couple is tim and tiffany nielson with their new daughter ellie. >> we heard ellie made quite an
