receive money. jan crawford is live with what has become a major distraction for that campaign. >> he spent most of the day repeatedly trying to shoot down these allegations, but sometimes his story did change. all of this is coming just as several new polls show his him solidifying his leader of the republican pack. >> i have never sexually harassed anyone. i've never sexually harassed anyone. >> was there any behavior on your part that you think might have been inappropriate? >> in my opinion no. >> the accusations against cain date back to the 1990s and were brought to life sunday on the politico website. two women at the national restaurant association a group cain then led, complained he engaged in sexually suggestive behavior. the women eventually were paid a settlement, a claim cain initially deposited. >> i am unaware of any sort of settlement. i hope it wasn't for much
because i didn't do anything. >> but later acknowledged on fox news -- >> and yes, there was some sort of settlement or termination and i don't even know what the contents of that was since it was found baseless. >> talgzs have create add media firestorm and come as cain has created a media in the polls. >> i told you this bull's eye got bigger. i have no idea. we have no idea the source of this witch-hunt. >> others have gone further announcing cain is the victim of a high tech lynching. >> you have a high ranking black figure who dare toes break away from the liberal orthodoxy, who dares to challenge the republican elite, as well. >> but the reporter who broke the story denies he had any agenda other than the truth. >> i was doing my job and reporting a story about a candidate for president of the united states who had serious
allegations lodged against him. >> reporter: despite the controversy swirling around him, cain was able to lighten the mood at his national press club appearance. ♪ i'll never know why jesus came to love me so ♪ cain said the story was designed to force him out of this race. he vowed that it wouldn't. the chief of staff toll me supporters were rallying behind him yesterday. online support was up 75%. the question is how long will that last if there are more disclosures. >> jan, thanks. we want to bring in now gop strategist mark mckinnon. mark, great to have you with us. we want to have you handicap what we've seen over the last 24 hours or so. taking a look at how this was handled by the campaign politico says they did reach out ahead of this story.
they should have known this was coming. was it handled correctly? >> no erica, it hasn't been. the three things should have happened. one, they should have known it was coming. two, they should have been prepared. three, they should have had a singular message and stayed on that message. the problem is not even so much the story itself, but the changing nature of the story. and so if cain would simply have come out, acknowledged that the story had happened been prepared, had a proactive statement about the incident and left it at that it would have been fine. but now he keeps talking and changing the story and that's the problem is the evolution of the story. >> so how does he take control of the situation today? >> well we should just be affirmative and acknowledge that there was a suit and say that the deal was sealed and proactively reaffirm what he said before, which is that he never harassed anybody. the problem is that he went into the details of the alleged incident now which he never should have done.
the he should have said, it never happened. i never harassed anybody. there was a settlement end of story. the problem gets into versions of the story now. he has a version of the story and the next thing we're going to hear is the version from one of the alleged victims of the incident is going to have their version. then there's going to be competing versions of the story. i think it was a mistake for cain too far get into how it happened where it happens and it would have been better to say it never happened that harassment never happened and that should have been the end of the story. >> so that's how it should have played out. you gave us some ideas of how the campaign should have handled this. moving forward today, support among his core group there is up according to his campaign manager. there was a rise in donations yesterday. how do the rest of the candidates handle this? they have been laying low. is that what you would have recommended if you were working
with the other folks? >> never get in the way of a train wreck when that's happening to your opponent. the other candidates should absolutely stay away from this. the problem for cain is twofold. one is he's been seen as authentic. if any of this comes across as being inauthentic, that he's trying to change his story line or he's not -- his support among republican could collapse and that spells real danger for him. >> mark good to have you with us. let us know if any of the candidates give you a call. >> sure will. we want to turn our attention now to wall street. there's jitters this morning. >> they come all the way from europe where a shocking move is sending ripples through the markets. rebecca jarvis is with us. the europeans did have a deal in place last week and something seems to have fallen apart. what's going on?
>> basically was going on in europe is a jockeying. greece has a massive debt. as a result of thats massive debt, the rest of europe is saying, greece you have to cut spending. you have to cut on your jobs and other entitlement programs. well it looked like last week there was a deal. it looked like greece was willing to play ball with the rest of europe and do what the rest of europe wanted them to do in order to get a bailout. today, we have news that the prime minister in greece went back to his people and said you get to vote on this. you get to say whether we go along with what europe wants us to do. and there's a problem because the people don't look like they want to do that. >> and so if they say no we run into a whole new mess. we spent so much time talking about how this october was a great october here in the u.s. despite everything that was happening overseas. how are folks thinking this is going to impact the markets here today? >> well, you have the near term pain you have the near term fear playing into what's happening. so around the world, stocks are
pointing lower this morning. you mentioned, though we're coming off one of the best octobers in years. the dow was up 9.5% for the month of october. we've had a lot of positivity coming into all of this. we have a g-20 meeting taking place beginning tomorrow. and the united states along with the rest of the world is going to be pushing europe as well as greece to get on board with the austerity measures because it's really, as of now, it is the only solution on the table that can keep greece from going down that rabbit hole and from destabilizing the rest of the world economy. >> rebecca jarvis thank you. >> thank you. more than the 2 million people are waking up this morning without power in the northeast. >> space heaters are causing a spike in hospital visits as customers without electricity
find anything they can to stay warm. in north jersey the power is still out. >> this is where the family spent hall hoe wean night, sharing tales of trick or treat by candlelight. it's their third night in a row without power. their one comfortable a propane space heater which out of caution they turn off before going to bed at night. >> what's your routine at night without power? >> lots of blanket, heat the place up light the candles. >> they're like many residents in must milford, new jersey, who refuse to let a late october snowstorm dampen their spirits. >> i have regulars. they come every year. >> rain or shine, veterinarian carol carbury becomes a witch on hollow's eve. >> what was it that made you say i've got to do this?
>> because i'm the witch every year. i had to do it. i couldn't let them down. >> kids are grateful for candy being handed out this halloween. parents are thankful neighbors are sharing generators. >> and i was just bragging on saturday how we've had such warm halloweens and i think i spoke too soon and jinged everyone. >> one neighborhood has surprised power to five people on this street. >> we got in last night. >> a large tree limb narrowly missed marilyn cline's home while she was away for the weekend. was it freezing? >> it was freezing in here. >> utility companies say power may not be restored until late this week which means dark cold nights without the benefits of spooky fun. >> lots of problems in new jersey. my folks are still without power until thursday they're talking about getting it become.
more on the jetblue flight this weekend that was stuck on the tarmac. >> the government is now investigating how it could have been happened. but as pier greenberg reports, the government touted passenger bill of rights may not have happened in this case. >> it's ridiculous. the airport is leaving us here and not doing anything about it. >> jetblue was forced to land at hartford's bradley international airport saturday night. >> is there any way you can get a tug and a tow bar out here to us and get us towed somewhere, to a gate or something. >> reporter: 129 passengers were stuck on the tarmac for more than seven hours and working rest rooms. >> no. they're filled. they're totally filled. no one can get in them any more. you have to hold it. >> tempers began to flare on board. >> i've got a problem on the airplane. i'm going to need cops brought
on the airplane. >> behind us there was almost a fight. in front of us, people are yelling. >> jetblue's coo apologized. >> we know we let some of you down over the course of the weekend, and for that we are sorry. >> as of april 2010 a passenger egg's bill of rights says if a passenger is left on the plane for more than three hours, the airline can be fined up to $27,500 per passenger. >> when the airport realized they were being overloaded, they should have said we cannot accommodate the aircraft and you knight need to divert somewhere else. >> cbs news aviation safety expert pilot sullenberger believes everyone involved must work together.
>> the airlines the air krafk control systems, the airports all have to have action plans in place to quickly turn to in adverse weather affair to get stairs and buses to airplanes that cannot make it through gates. >> peter greenberg is here with us for more. how did this happen, whether it's the airport's responsibility or the airline responsibility how do you leave people on a plane for seven hours? >> once you divert a plane and an airport accepts that plane, there's a certain responsibility the airport should have that goes beyond what the airline is responsible for. >> bradley is not a big a airline, but you have a guy on a wheelchair. >> exactly. we don't need a jetway here. go back to the future. get the stairs to the plane and get the people off the plane. >> which the pilot requested at one point. if i'm sitting on that plane, i'm literally thinking, can we open the door and put the slide down and get us all out of here? >> well, a jetblue flight
attendant tried that. but the pilot didn't declare an on board emergency and didn't call the authorities. this is a 911 call. >> do you think the pilot should have gone further? >> it takes it to another level. >> could you ever realistically, though, is there a situation where the pilot could say, it's okay, i'm giving you the okay open that door and get them these people out. >> once you deploy that slide, it's a very expensive process. but the bottom line is in the 16 months from the rules were put in place for the department of transportation, there were 900 delays. >> do you think they'll be fined here? yes or no? >> no. >> and nobody has yet. >> those passengers would like to see a fine. >> i think they may get together and ask for something on their own, too. betty nguyen is here for

you to administer propofol in his bedroom every night, would you do it? >> absolutely non. that would be a job i wouldn't consider. >> this witness was virtually destroyed by the prosecution. not only was he a mixed bag, but he might have hurt the defense' case more than he helps. >> when asked, dr. white could not justify many of dr. murray's actions, including not calling 9 1 when michael jackson was found nonresponsive and for not telling paramedics and doctors that propofol -- >> well it was obviously overlooked. he -- >> well not obviously, but it could have been a lie, correct? >> if you say so yes. >> is and dr. white was repeatedly told he could be held in contempt by telling about
conversations he had with murray that were not admissible. good morning to you both. republican presidential candidate herman cain now admits he was accused of sexual ra harassment back in the 1990s, but says he did nothing wrong. in a series of interviews yesterday, cain repeatedly said he never harassed anyone. but as the day progressed the details of his short shifted. at first, cain said he was not aware his accusers received any settlements, but then changes hid story. it it skorted out it was a lot of money and it was baseless she ended up leaving with several months severance. >> kaib says his online donations nearly doubled yesterday. in other news, secretary of
state hill rad rodham clinton has canceled a trip because her mother is sick. there's no word on the nature of her illness. crews in the northeast are working to restore power after a power storm. the death toll has reached at least 21. well, the weather has got very interesting over about the past half-hour, we were going to have clouds around but there is an area of low pressure offshore swinging moisture our way. if you look straight out to the horizon, that is rain approaching the inner harbor, we will go ahead and take a closer look at i want to update you now on a story we first brought you last year. remember the ten russian spies who were arrested here in the
u.s. and sent home as part of a spy swap? it turns out chapman and other agents were caught on camera many times as they conducted their spy games. >> since being ex peld from the u.s. as a russian spy, anna chapman has become her own international brain, part-time lingerie model, tv personality and aspiring politician. but before japman was the star of men's magazine she appeared in more sedate almost boring videos and didn't know it. in june 2010 the red-hair spy delivered a lop top. later, the fbi watch her again while she shopped for leggings as a russian official waited outside. chapman was not the government's only unwitting video star. the fbi watched as two of chapman's fellow spies met on a brooklyn street and then again
near new york's columnby gentleman circle. frank bigluzzi is the is the top intelligent member. >> anytime you can totally dismantle an operating network inside the united states that's a huge win for us. >> it seemed over ten years, the fbi had cameras everywhere. agents took video of this stash. two years later, video cameras reported one of the spies retrieving the treasure. officials say the trade craft was sophisticated, but compromised. this video shows a package in a dead drop under a bridge in arlington, virginia. still, another camera captured this payoff.
>> so what you're seeing here in the passage is a russian official passing money to one of the actual illegals. >> fbi officials say they allowed the network to operate for as long as they did in order to learn as much as possible about russia's spy operations. but when the spies started getting closer to the circles in washington, a decision was made to end the cold war entries. >> this is why i always wanted to be a fed. it is fascinating. >> i thought you were going to say you always wanted to be a spy. >> they had cameras on these people for so long it makes boggles my mind. >> it will make me think quickly the luxurious time i try 20g9 on the subway. we're going to tell you

experts predict the unemployment rate will save up to 9% next year so where are the jobs? try the fast growing energy industry. >> there are jobs to be had. a lot of those jobs are riding on the natural gas boom right now. business and economics correspondent rebecca jarvis is here with an inside look at the game changing potential of this natural resource. there's a lot of controversy surrounding it as well. >> there is. and we will explore both estimates. by some estimates, the u.s. has two centuries worth of cable buried thousands of feet below ground. but now through hydraulic fracturing energy wells are digging wells across the country and they're hoping to generate up to a million new jobs. >> how many guys would you find on a rig like this at any given time? >> it will vary a little bit. from five to as many as six or seven. >> from high above this rig
outside oklahoma city, chesapeake energy is focusing on america's drive toward energy independence. >> and this one can drill as much as two miles underground or could it drill even deeper than that? >> it could drill deeper. 18,000 feet, something like that. >> the drilling is part of a natural gas boom involving more than 150 companies across 36 states. >> what makes natural gas so important to this cup? >> it is the way away from foreign oil. it is the way towards more jobs. it is the way to stronger economy. it's the way to better national security. >> abdomenry mcclendon is ceo of chesapeake energy, the second largest natural gas producer in the country. he's betting his can company's fortune that this cleaner oil will eventually replace the 3
billion crude from opec we report every day. >> this is one turn. >> the more to inacceptsive natural gas does is it's a tremendous boost to our economy. it means electricity price res lower, gas price res lower, companies that would have gone overseas are building them in the united states. >> politicians of every strine -- >> it's a path forward president obama endorsed directly in march. >> recent innovations have given us the opportunity to tap large reserve reserves. perhaps a century's worth of reserves. >> reporter: the reserves are buried thousands of feet below ground in massive shale rock formations in states like texas, louisiana, arkansas and as far north aspen pen and ohio and new york. in 2010 the united states surpassed russia as the largest producer of natural gas. we currently get about a quarter
of our energy from natural gas and demand is climbing. >> is it easy? is it accessible to get to that 200 year's worth? >> yes. it's not that easy in the sense that it comes to you. you have to go drill a well. >> the process is noun as hydraulic fracturing. companies drill a well one to two meals below the either and turn it sideways, pumping large amounts of gas to the service. >> we've drilled about 125 wells in this particular field. >> that's a lot of natural gas. how many dollars does something like that equate to? >> they wells cost typically around $7 million, $8 million. some of the best wells might pay out in as little as 30 to 60 days. >> but the price of natural gas has dropped significantly, raising questions about the industry's profitability and its long-term nurch.
>> if we go into a deeper economic decline, a double dip, then we would see natural gas prices probably fall. they could fall to a level where you would see drilling activity decline simply because people don't have the capital. our company will make $2 billion this year for its shareholders. the industry is a protble industry. we're the lowest cost gas producers in the word today. and i'm going to deliver this american treasure to the american people because they need to know about it. the the. >> mcclendon tells us he's been in touch with several european conditions that are interesting in replicating this. tomorrow we'll look at whether high drat dralic fracturing is safe and if energies are done in the property agencies.

such controversial techniques were not being used in other of their federal investigations. breuer said in a statement yesterday he now regrets not alerting others within the department of justice to those controversial tactics when they first came to his attention. when new gun walking allegations arose earlier this year bruer said he did not draw a connection to the unacceptable tactics of atf agents years earlier. last night, senator chuck grassley of iowa said quote, despite their denials of gun walking, it appears that senior justice department officials clearly knew that gun walking had happened previously and ignored the red flags that it was happening again in a newer case called fast and furious. breuer, that high ranking justice official is scheduled to testified before a senate southbound committee today and will likely be asked about all
of this. >> it's chris. how did the material come to life? >> the justice department turned over about 650 pages the of documents due to a congressional subpoena. investigators will be pour thing over them in great detail to see who thought up the scheme who approved of it and who knew of it. >> sharyl thank you. betty, good morning again. >> good morning, chris and erica and good morning to you. republican front-runner herman cain says he never sexually harassed anyone. but yesterday he admitted he was accused of sexual harassment back in the 1990s. cain said the allegations are part of a witch-hunt. ate first, cain denied he knew of any payout to his accusers. but then changed his tune. >> yes. that was some sort of settlement or termination and i don't even
know what the agreement was isn't it was found baseless. the report on president obama's recent sfl in. the white house doctor says he is in excellent health at age 50. he stays fit and drinks alcohol in moderation. and after a long struggle to quit smoking, he is tobacco free. in summary, it says mr. obama is fit for duty. and a report this morning says the giant brokerage firm mf global is under a federal investigation. it filed for bankruptcy yesterday. the firm is run by former new jersey governor jon corzine and the "new york times" says about $700 million of customer funds had gone missing from mf global. regulators want to know if the firm used that money to support its own trades as the firm failed. in connecticut, long lines after this weekend's surprise snowstorm. some stations had to shut down
in brief, he's been a presidential speech writer actor, emmy award winning game show host lawyer, professor was in ferry beuhler's day off. >> and we are fortunate to have mr. stein with us here this morning. >> honored to be here in your deep freeze studio. >> and it's actually warmer than yesterday. it's a good thing you came in on a tuesday. you talk a lot about the importance of marriage. >> for more americans, the marriage choice they make is the most important choice they will ever make who they decide to marry or have as their significant other is the most important choice they'll ever make. >> so is 72 days long enough to allow a marriage to play out? >> if you're a wealthy beverly hills young woman whose father is a lawyer for a very famous sports figure yes, that's long enough. but for most people -- i don't know. i've been married 43 years to my same wife. we still learn new things about each other all the time.
but if you make the right choice about who you marry, pretty much everything else works out. it's vital. >> economics is definitely a big part of it. you don't want to obviously marry for money or anything like that. but if you marry into a situation where somebody is bad with money, it can create big problems. >> character is everything. one of the key hallmarks of character is if a person has a job. at least a person has to be looking for work. watching baseball games, playing video games, that is not usually good marriage material. work is so important in life it's unbelievable. >> it gives you a purpose. >> do you feel people now, we hear of a time of people that just stop looking for work.
>> there are an awful lot of americans that woep won't work at a fast food shop say they're artists and refuse to do things. that's nonsense. a person of good character will take any job rather than take welfare or take handout webs any job with dignity is a perfectly good job. my old boss president nixon, now belonging to the ancient past used to say emptying a bed pan, if you do it with the right spirit has as much dignity as being president of the united states. and i think it's true. carrying for the sick has incredible importance. >> and let's talk about wall street. you believe there is a lot of responsibility for what's happening right now. a lot.
>> when you look at occupy wall street, do they have the right message? >> no, they don't. they're a bunch of bums as far as i'm concerned. if they had some specific ideas, if they had some specific proposals, if they were doing anything whatsoever besides sleeping in their tents and banging drums, i would say great, god bless them. i spent a large part of my life crusading against fraud on wall street. but to just bang a drum and light up a big doobie and go back into your tent, that does not do anything whatsoever to advance the cause of justice or processsperity prosperity. if young americans want to fight fraud, that's great. but to bang against drums, no thanks. >> is he handling this the right way? what would you have done differently if you were him? how would you advice him inspect. >> i would advise him that he should have national experience in government before he run for president. i think he's an impressive guy.
i agree with his point of view on almost everything he says. but government is a job that requires experience. you cannot walk in after having run a pizza company and do it. he's not my guy to be president. i like him. he's impressive. the i think with some seasoning, he's the right guy, but he's not the right guy right now. >> who is your guy? i guess romney. >> thank you very much. >> i love how you talk about the importance of education, too. be sure to read it.

daughters are now generating buzz of their own with that interpretation of their ad. >> we are shamelessly promoting our dad like no other candidate's family ever has. but then again, no one has ever seen a trio like these girls. we need you to get involved to make sure our next president is based on substance, not sound bites. >> check out our dad at jon2012.com and follow us on twitter. >> what exactly is the xap strategy? let's ask the jon 2012 girls. they're known as abby huntsman livingson, mary anne hundredsman and liddy huntsman. >> did you wear those outfits for halloween? >> no. >> what is the genesis? why fire back with an ad like this? where did it all come from? >> wait.
i thought we were supposed to talk about the crashing award. >> we'll get to that. >> there are other things going on in the world. but yeah, we came up with the ad. we thought it was a very clever idea. we saw this video had just going gone viral. we thought this would be so funny to do a spoof of it and why not blow bubbles. >> you guys are having a lot of fun with this campaign. obviously, there's a lot of reason behind et because you want your dad to get the bid and ultimately become president. how do you think humor is helping you guys and helping rye to get the word out for your dad because he's lackinggging in the polls. >> we're trying to get out there. we're obviously being honest in our tweets. but we want to be light hearted and funny, but also you know help our dad out. so -- >> do you think it's -- do you notice a change in the buzz at all that you're seeing online?
>> absolutely. i mean it's generating a lot of buzz. and i think we're the only ones out there, especially our age, that has the opportunity to see the inside of what's going on in the election. i think a lot of people are curious to see what's going on. and we're very honest in everything we say. and i think people are really attracted to that. so we're having a great time. >> and they may find it weird that a politician's child -- we're so honest and blunt. we're supposed to be taken aback and reserved. but we're having fun with it and like people to see what we're saying behind the scenes. >> what does your dad say? does he say it's good to be funny, but you don't want to mention something that is going to generate -- >> there's definitely a balance with that. he trusts us but i think we're all in this for a very serious reason and we know that our country is going through some things that needs to be fixed. that's the main reason for doing this.

i think some people take that the wrong way. >> as much fun as you guys are having with add jon 2012 girls, which is the twitter handle you joke around with some of the other candidate's kids, but you have come out pretty strongly with other topics specifically with mitt romney. how did that go over with your dad when you guys do that? >> well i think at the end of the day, we believe in our dad so much. and when we see a lot of other people out there who kind of -- i don't know. we don't have the resume or the experience, you know as being out and saying you have the guy right here the candidate who has everything to turn this country around, you know, look into it. >> do you think young people are engaged in this election or do they feel forgotten inspect. >> i think a lot of people fooem feel without a home right now. i think there were a lot of oh bam obama supporters that was a thing four years ago. and i think my dad represents our age group and he provides a
roof for people to come under. we hope to reach out to our group and get people involved because it's so important for the next generation. >> do any other candidates have a sense of humor? >> clearly not. we try. we play around with them. >> thank you very much for coming. >> let's go to betty nguyen at the news desk for a check of the headlines for us. good morning to you. a bittersweet victory for two families in russia this morning. a court awarded them a huge settlement after their babies were switched at birth 12 years ago. cbs news correspondent charlie dagget reports. >> if the em braes between a mother and her daughter looks a little awkward, it's with good reason. >> i'm a strange woman for her, just a stranger and that hurts me, knowing she's my flesh and blood hurts me. >> no long ago, yulia woke up to the horror that she 12-year-old daughter she raised from birth was not her own.

open enrollment season is kwhomg companies change their benefits and employees have to make big decisions. as the cost of health care rises, many americans are choosing workers who chose health insurance plans with deductibles. >> so we want to take a look at this for you. most of you are in the thick of this decision period right now. joining us is carmen wong ulrich. so these higher costs, one would guess that companies are trying to push you towards this because it's less expensive for them. >> yes, that's the key. this is growing, the high deductible plans. and they call it consumer directed plans. here is the way it is. you're paying less monthly in monthly premium, but you're going to pay a lot more when you go to the doctor and you have procedures. large companies, now two-thirds of large companies in 2012 that's what they're offering you. that's up from 61% this year. 10% of companies only offer high deductibles as a way for you to share the cost of health
coverage. >> if you have a choice, who could this be a good idea for and who may want to choose a traditional if they can? >> it's a good good thing if you're young and healthy because you don't need to pea pai these high premium. anybody with a crone inillness, you want to make sure you get a traditional plan. there's one key thing, this ch is great. the hsa, the health savings account that is tied to a high dedoubleble plan. they're like an ir.r.a., but for your health care. it's a tax deduction, up to $6,250 if you're a family of two or more. and it can grow you can invest it and it's potable. when you go from job to job, it stays with you through retirement. this is another way to save for your health care coverage. >> let's say you have kids that are often sick. >> traditional plan is for you.
it's going to cost way too much for you to go through that deductible. if you have to go to the doctor often, stick with a traditional plan. but a high deductible plan makes sense for a lot of other folks. >> and you mentioned this hsa. a lot of people are more familiar with what's called an fsa, the flexible spending account. walk us through quickly what the kirchbss are, but allow you can use that plan to your advantage. >> and that's very different. that's something we've seen a lot of hsa is different in the sense that this is something you can invest, it grows, take it with you. an fsa, this is an account you put money in and it has its limits, as well. and it is changing. in 2013 the new rules are that this is going to slipg from $5,000 that you can put away to $2,500 in 2013 also over-the-counter medications, no longer qualify for ffas. this is an account that if you don't use it you lose it. if you know you need insulin, this is a way to put pretax money away. >> if you're going to have a
baby. >> exactly. >> i wouldn't know but i'll taker word for it. >> they are very expensive. >> if you don't have health care coverage through your employer what should you do? >> and there's more and more americans in that situation whether you're in between jobs you're a freelancer you need to get your own health care coverage and here is where you need to go. your state department of insurance. iii.org. this is the insurance information institute website. put in your state and it will give you that information. they help you stop. freelancers union.org, check in there. if you or a member of your family, usaa.com. there are options out there for you. if none of this applies to you, health at einsurance.com. >> whatever decision you make, do it quickly. exactly. >> always great advice. carmen, thanks. just ahead, it's time to smile. we've learned this morning that
