act an obamacare fix and say the healthcare law isn't delivering. >> now we find out it was all just talk, this is what this country is fed up with. they're tired of the talk that comes out of washington. they want to have people represent them. >> reporter: president obama announced a policy shift thursday that americans can keep their healthcare plans next year. but the house bill goes further. it let's insurance companies sell new plans that don't meet the basic obama requirements you like maternity care, and today mike doyle said that defeats the healthcare law. >> if we continue to allow private insurance companies to sell policies that discriminate against women, that set annual caps and lifetime caps, if we continue to allow all of those practices, then every american, 80%-90% said they want in their healthcare system, then that risk pool goes away.
6:03 pm

6:05 pm
don't adhere to the basic qualification of obamacare. watch to see if this goes somewhere, but for the house and the senate to agree on much of thing is a tall order. >> thank you. in the philippines a massive effort is underway to get help to the survives of typhoon haiyan. we're learning more about the scale of the disaster. more than 3600 people have died, 1200 people are still missing, and nearly 2 million people have no homes. aid from all over the world is arriving, but relief workers are still encountering obstacles as they try to get food and water to those hard-hit areas. craig, tell us exactly where you are. >> reporter: we're on an island part of the group of islands in the far northern tip of cebu, a
6:06 pm
very remote area and very difficult to get to. we spent 12 hours on a small cargo ship yesterday getting here with some relief supplies by a local volunteer group, and then traveled with those trucks across the island to here, a little sleepy fishing village called santa fe. as you can see behind me the place has been totally wiped out. we're in a resort, well, what was a resort right on the coast here, and this is indicative to what is happening thon island. 95% of all homes and structures have been completely decimated. >> are you seeing any evidence or maybe the question is to what extent are you seeing evidence of the rescue mission reaching--look at these picks, reaching where you are, and what kind of state are the people in.
6:07 pm
>> reporter: well, the rescue effort we're see something part of a local government initiative. not an international initiative. it's a very difficult thing to get supplies here. they have to be airlifted in or brought over by boat. that's part of the problem, for the locals when the typhoon passed through most of the fishing vessels and transportation was also damaged, so they haven't been able to eke out a living or to get off the island. the people here are quite desperate. there is no power. there is no tantation. there is very little food arriving and there is no shelter. we had to spend the night in a hut. we were lucky that we had a roof that did work. but it was raining overnight and into this morning. for those who don't have shelter, that provides problems because it gets quite cool here in the evening. during the day it gets incredibly hot. so pneumonia is a big problem,
6:08 pm
disease, diarrhea, these are the things that mission who is come up here have to deal with. they're in the mission that we came in with, there are a few doctors who are struggle to go able to cope with the problems that the peep here surround themselves with. and yesterday, as we distributed the food, we saw chaotic scenes as people desperate who haven't eaten in days fought for the food that was handed out. >> craig, i want to try one more. i think the windows are about to close. if it does go i hope folks will understand, but this is a week now since the storm barreled through, are people where you are beginning to think that perhaps they have been forgotten by the international relief effort? >> reporter: that's right. indeed, they have. we traveled with a convoy yesterday and it was difficult
6:09 pm
getting in because these trucks had to move through fallen power lines, trees across the road. it was very difficult. when we arrived in santa fe it was quite chaotic as they contributed the rice. people were fighting over the packages that were handed out. they were lined up one after the other. there has been very little food here since the typhoon came through. >> craig leesom for us, thank you for, devastating pictures craig, thank you. now skype from manila in the philippines, an international emergency respondent for the u.n. office with humanitarian affairs. you're charge of the digital relief effort. what does that mean? >> hi, tony, yes, my responsibility has been sort of how we as international
6:10 pm
community handle, bring together information to give a better picture to help responders who are in country. now the digital side of it is working with external groups, mostly international volunteer tech-enabled groups trying to undertake activities such as mining and social media, and other sources of data to try to ament existing services that we offer to the humanitarian community in hopes to give a better picture and better understanding. as craig mentioned, to become aware of where the needs are needed the most. we're really working with the digital humanitarians abroad to try to augment the response. >> that's terrific, so we're into the first week of this. how is it going, and what are the challenges you're
6:11 pm
encountering? >> reporter: well, as craig mentioned challenges in country to a high degree are logistical issues, and as we'll start to see trying to get a handle on what is or is not the needs since communities are so heavily affected being able to understand what was needed was difficult to get clarity on. it's something that we're working very hard on trying to get an idea of who is responding in country. then for us on the digital side, those who are producing novel technologies, companies that are stepping up like esri and google, trying to make sure that the efforts they undertake are in coordination to groups like the u.n. or the government or civil society so that what they do helps us in some way which
6:12 pm
then in turn helps the effected population here in country. >> andre, you're describing a back and forth communication, so what are you hearing from the people who are reaching out to you? if you get a moment to have a conversation with them that's not about do this, go there, there is help for you there. what are you hearing about conditions on the ground and any distribution bottlenecks. >> this is a significant. they're trying to get a picture on that. what i'm here something there is a large group of international responders coming in, and we get

the aid in to the people who need it the most in the areas that are most affected. >> best of luck with your efforts, andre, disaster responder and information management for the u.n.'s office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs. thank you for the time. what was supposed to be a peaceful protest turned violent. armed militia fired on demonstrators. over 20 people are dead and hundreds more have been wounded. we have more. >> reporter: the message of the march was simple. get out. people heeded the call to protest and demand m militia groups leave. as they approached the headquarters of the brigade they
6:14 pm
were met by bullets. several people were killed. dozens others injured. >> i saw scenes of total chaos at the hospital both in front of the hospital, with lots of military, with lots of armed men trying to divert the traffic, and the safety was reflected inside the hospital where i saw lots and lots of armed men running around totally overwhelmed with what happened today. it was unprecedented. >> reporter: rival armed groups have been fighting with each other, and this is the first time civilians have become the target. >> they started shooting. look, this is the blood of libyans. i say to the national congress you traitors. to you government, you traitors. where is the army? where is the police? >> those questions reflected frustration ca with the governm. >> any interference from the government will have bad consequences as the forces could
6:15 pm
open fire on people exchanging shots. >> reporter: the militias began as local rebel groups who fought and overthrew muammar qaddafi. but they've grown in size and influence under a weak government. they so far refuse to disband or join the national security force despite the december deadline. once hailed as heroes, many libyans say their country is so lawless. al jazeera. >> more tonight the u.s. government is offering $10 million in reward money to find anyone involved with the bengahzi embassy attack. it went out in january, and security concerns prevented the department from discussing it sooner. arraignment today for a

6:22 pm
>> obviously someone else steps out of line like i have, it's going to affect councilors and the mayor, i think for years to come. >> reporter: in fact, when it came to a vote just the mayor and his brother, a councilor, opposed the motion to limit his powers. with almost unheard of unity, the councilors told the mayor his apology for his behavior is simply not enough. he is now mayor in name global >> those powers have been withdrawn from the mayor's office. >> reporter: rob ford has always been colorful and controversial. he came to power promising to cut spending and taxes, and he has. but his behavior has cost him much of his authority, and many of his loyal supporters, too. this woman voted for mayor ford three years ago, now she's part of a campaign to make him quit.

6:31 pm
this street so they can plug into generator power. they've even come from other towns to charge their phones. this hospital is the only one of three that is fully functioning. everyone has been working around the clock to get it cleaned up so it could deal with victimming of typhoon haiyan. only the patients with the most injuries remain a week after the storm struck. hospital administers told us that they took in three times the number of usual patients at first. the electricity they have come from two big generators, but it's not enough to bring the hospital to capacity. they can't even do blood tests. >> electrical, plumbing 1234 one of the main problems is damage to the power station that supplies electricity not only to

6:34 pm
the president said he and the executives want to make sure that all americans get the kind of affordable care that they deserve. that meeting took place hours after the house approved a bill that will let americans keep their insurance plan, but the white house said that the measure could undermine affordable care. =fplt washington state's insurance commissioner, commissioner, it's good to see you. tell me, this is--i'm curious about the stand the state is taking and that you're taking here. tell me why you don't think the president's proposal is a good deal for the state of washington? >> principally because it's disruptive to our insurance market. once you allow the creation of two-folds of people who have signed up, one with the affordable care act, one with their existing plans that have been continued for an additional year, you wind up with risk being sheared between two pools,
6:35 pm
and its likely the higher risk will be the affordable care act pool, and the lesser risk the extended pool, and the health insurers with rates all around a shared single pool. >> you're familiar--i'm sure you're familiar. i don't know why i'm asking if you're familiar with the bill that was passed today in the house. what's curious with that bill it will allow people to buy exchanges in the future that are outside the exchange. is that part of the disruptive affect that you're warning us? >> i think the legislation, the president, if i'm not mistaken, has indicated he's going to veto. what we're focused on is what the president announced yesterday. that proposal may work in some states where they've had problems with the facilitated exchanges. but for the state of washington we have a functioning exchange.
6:36 pm
people are getting signed up. they won't have problems accessing healthcare coverage. it's a different scenario for the state of washington. it actually move washington right along the path that president obama wants us to go. >> i think we thanksgivin thinkt commissioner kreidler. appreciate it. thank you. china announced today it's easing it's one-child policy this week's rulen of the communist party with sweeping changes it has had. generations. >> this is basically amounts in future if either member of a couple was a single child themselves, then that couple will be allowed to have more than one child. but given the one child rule

watt sewasset in 1979. before it was a poor country and could not forward to care for its population, but now it's the opposite problem with an aging population. also they would do away with forced labor camps. it has been abused by local officials to throw anybody into a labor camp that didn't agree with whatever local policies were going on. i think both of these reforms, though, are a way the ruling communist party can show people that things can change without the need of political change, too. >> last month a florida teenager in foster care made headlines

6:39 pm
>> i was getting frustrated, and i was searching for that family that i didn't. >> reporter: patrick's hope for a home is one shared by thousands. according to the administration, in 2011 there were more than 153,000 kids between the ages 12 and 20 in foster care. 26,000 had aged out of the system. a lot of people don't want teenagers because they figure you can't shape them. that's not true. >> so we need these forever families that are going to be able to say i will take you unconditionally. >> reporter: travis said adoption was never the plan but when the family expressed interest in adopting patrick, he is now 20 and a college student. >> oh, i'm here to push you up and get you back on your feet, and it feels good. >> reporter: travis and patrick share their home with foster

6:42 pm
directly or is targeted towards you specifically, they may not consider it abuse. they may consider it offensive. and in that case they just recommend that you block that person. >> i don't want to minimise this, because i mean, there's some really horrible things that are on line, and it's not - it's not just twitter, what has happened through social media and the anonymity of the net is that you see websites, hate-filled websites targetting all sorts of groups, popping up. there has been a huge number of those that exist as well.
