toyota. let's go places. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." good morning norah. >> good morning, charlie. >> cbs confirms more than 2 million americans have been told they cannot renew their current health insurance policies. o learn they can't keep their current policies despite the president's assurances to the contrary. >> reporter: the white house is on the defensive, trying to explain how, when the president repeatedly said this -- >> if you like your doctor or health care plan you can keep it. >> reporter: he really didn't mean it.
7:04 am
>> well the president said what everybody said all along there are going to be changes brought about by the affordable care act to create minimum standards of coverage. >> reporter: it's an unexpected reality of obama care being told through ant thatna antidotes and media. cbs news has confirmed with insurance companies across the country that more than 2 million people are getting notices they no longer can keep their existing plan. in california 279,000. in michigan 140,000. florida, 300,000. and in new jersey 800,000. and those numbers are certain to go even higher. some companies tell us they've sent letters, but they won't tell us how many. >> what we're seeing now is the reality. coming into play. >> reporter: industry experts like larry levitt of the kaiser family foundation say the insurance companies have no choice. obama care forces them to drop many of their plans that don't
7:05 am
meet the law's ten minimum standards, including maternity care, emergency visits mental health treatment and even pediatric dental care. that means consumers have to sign on to new plans even if they don't want or need the more generous coverage. industry experts say about half of the people getting these letters will pay more. half will pay less thanks to taxpayer subsidies. >> the winners outnumber the it. industry experts say for everyone, the best get to c >> thanks, janet. the obama administration is thinking seriously this morning about ending surveillance programs. . . .
7:06 am
leaders. the a allies are said they'y're fufurious the national secu >> sources tell "the los angeles times" that the obama white house did approve many of those oppositions. margaret brennan is at the state department. margaret, good morning. >> good morning, norah, and to charlie. european lawmakers tell us they're upset by the volume of information collected by the nsa and want to know what was done with it. they'll hold meetings at the white house and the state department today. but some of these questions are going to be hard to answer as we just begin to realize how far the surveillance program reaches. >> reporter: president obama said there should be additional constrains on how the u.s. gathers intelligence. he told cable channel fusion. >> what we've seen over the last several years is their capacity to continue to develop and expand, and that's why i'm initiating now a review to make sure that what they're able to do doesn't necessarily mean what they should be doing. >> reporter: the president would
7:07 am
not say whether or not he knew that the nsa has been monitoring german chancellor angela merkel's communications since 2002. but according to senate intelligence committee chair dianne feinstein, the president was unaware. so was her committee. in a statement released on monday, she said "it is clear to me that certain surveillance activities have been in effect for more than a decade and the intelligence committee was not sats factually informed. our oversight needs to be strengthened and increased." european lawmakers demanded an explanation during a closed meeting on monday. germany's elmar brock said he and his colleagues were not satisfied. >> if you have a feeling that your closest allies are spying on you then that's difficult to talk to such an ally in an open way anymore, and i think they have to make a clear distinction between fight together
7:08 am
terrorists but not spying on friends. >> reporter: national security advisor susan rice acknowledged the uproar posting on twitter, "we must seek proper balance between security concerns of our citizens and allies and the privacy concerns that all people share." a white house review of u.s. intelligence gathering is expected by the end of the year. european lawmakers are meeting right now with senator feinstein who says she's totally opposed to spying on u.s. allies and says the white house will end the program. whether or not it actually will is a question for the director of national intelligence and the nsa chief, who testify on capitol hill at 10:30 pacific. >> margaret thank you. and vigils and prash services will be held along the east coast today to mark one year since superstorm sandy first came ashore in new jersey killing 71 people in that state. 346,000 homes were damaged or destroyed. 26,000 people are still out of their homes.
7:09 am
>> our conversation with new jersey governor chris christie permitting he was the face of disaster response but we begin with elaine quijano in seaside heights, new jersey. elaine, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah and viewers in the west. sandy was the biggest and fiercest storm ever to hit new jersey, costing the state nearly $40 billion in damage. recovery has been slow and for many it's far from over. when superstorm sandy slammed ashore last october, more than 100 miles of new jersey's coastline bore the brunt of it. communities split in half homes crushed, others simply washed away. in seaside heights the same boardwalk and heart of the shore town's economy took a pounding. >> this is our lives, how we feed our family, support ourselves. >> reporter: mike carbone had to completely rebuild the first and second floors of his restaurant after the storm. almost a year later, tragedy struck again. fast-moving flames destroyed
7:10 am
nearly 70 businesses along the boardwalk in september. authorities blamed the fire on electrical wiring damaged by sandy. >> on the road to recovery and then this fire i think we took one step forward and about three steps backwards. >> reporter: in the days after the storm, new jersey governor chris christie promised a full recovery. >> we're going to work together to rebuild our state in a way that's going to make us even prouder than we are already about where we live. >> reporter: before or after photos show how far jersey has come, roads broken up by storm surge now patched up. neighborhoods reduced to rubble are in the midst of rebuilding. the reaction to christie's response has been mixed. a recent poll found that among those surveyed 61% were somewhat or very dissatisfied with the recovery efforts. only 7% were very satisfied. still, others say he's done a great job. >> from the moment sandy happened he has been all over us as far as trying to help us to help ourselves. we're hope that feel every day
7:11 am
we're going to be better than we are today. >> reporter: later tonight, some new jersey residents will mark the anniversary of sandy in a unique way. they'll gather on the shoreline shining flashlights, a symbol of hope after what was a dark time. charlie, norah? >> elaine quijano, thank you. with us from seaside park new jersey governor chris christie. governor, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. how are you? >> fine sir. it's good to talk with you this morning. are you satisfied with new jersey's recovery from sandy? >> well, charlie, listen i think we've made tremendous progress in the last year. tens of thousands of people back in their homes all the boardwalks rebill so many businesses that have come back online. but i also know that we still have a lot more work to do a lot of people who are frustrated or not back this their homes, and my mission is to get all those people back in their homes. from p begin, i said this was an 18- to 24-month process. we've made great progress in the
7:12 am
first year but there are frustrations and challenges that remain and my job is to address those and evercome them. >> why are there 26,000 people still homeless? >> well there's a number of reasons. first, let's start with the fact it took 92 days for the congress to act on aid for sandy victims. that's unprecedented. it was ten days for katrina and 17 days for gustav. you remember me being pretty exercised about it at the time because i knew what that would do to add time at the end. the first fetd ral dollars from the sandy aid package didn't flow to new jersey until the end of may. >> governor it is true there were delays, and yet $60 billion in federal aid, and yet so many people who lost their homes say they've barely seen a trickle of that. how can you explain that? >> well, norah, first off, i don't know whether you would call $8 billion a trickle but $8 billion has been distributed in new jersey. despite all the challenges i just talked about, between aid from fema and aid from the sandy
7:13 am
package, $8 billion has been distributed from $51 billion that's available. $9 billion went to the national flood insurance program. but of the $51 billion available, $8 billion has been distributed in new jersey. and we're going to continue to work to make that even better. but, you know, you've got to work with your partners in the federal government and as we can all tell from looking at washington, d.c. that's sometimes not the easiest thing in the world. >> let me ask you about washington, d.c. and the current problems with obama care. jan crawford just reported that 800,000 people in new jersey are getting notices that they can no longer keep their existing plans. do you wish that you had set up a state-run insurance exchange so that people could use that? >> no norah, it wouldn't have made any difference, in fact because you can see all the problems with this. what the federal government wanted us to do in the states was to take on this burden ousts without telling us how much it would cost or what authority we would have to actually run our exchanges. that's why myself and 33 other governors, both republican and
7:14 am
democrat, said no to a state-run exchange. the real problem is that people weren't told the truth. you can remember they were told that they would be able to keep their policies if they liked them. and now you hear hundreds of thousands of people across the country being told they couldn't. so the white house needs to square that with what was told to the american people and told to the congress before hand. and it doesn't seem to square at the moment but we'll wait and see. >> let me turn to the nsa. as you know you have said that if people who want to crack down on the nsa would regret it when the next attack came. do you want to suggest to america that nsa should be doing everything it was doing and is necessary for america's national security even if it involves tapping the cell phones of foreign leaders? >> i'll it will you, charlie, what the folks in washington should be doing is doing their job, and that means the folks at the white house and in congress -- >> i remember as you well do when hurricane sandy hit and the
7:15 am
president came to new jersey you welcomed him with open arms and you believed in the cooperation with the federal government. but this morning you seem to be attacking the federal government at every level. >> charlie, all i ask is people do the same thing i do, which is to be held responsible for doing their jobs every day. i'm proud that here in new jersey the state government has been working extraordinarily well with local groups and organizations and everyday citizens to try to help us recover from what is the worst natural disaster that's ever hit this state in its history. you know me charlie. ask me a question i'm going the give you an answer. it's about the questions you're asking this morning, charlie, not about my answers. >> all right, governor. how about this -- you look great? how is your health and how's your weigh loss going? >> my health is really good. we released a medical report on friday that lays all that out for the people of new jersey in the run-up to the election. they've also seen me do the job for the last four years.
7:16 am
i don't think they're concerned that i can't. as my doctor noted in the report my weight loss has been good and steady. i feel good. and, you know, we're just going to continue on the program. >> governor, good to see you. thanks for join us. we're thinking about everybody in new jersey and new york that's been affected still by superstorm sandy. thank you. >> norah, thank you. charlie, thank you for having us on this morning. outrage over nearly 12 hours of delays on an airlines. they faced a day of frustrations at oakland's airport. mark kelly of our san francisco station wpix looks at what went wrong. >> reporter: allegiant air's twice weekly flight from oakland to provo, utah is usually a quick 90 minute but at 9:30 monday morning, shortly after flight 1032 pushed back from the gate a cable controlling the front landing gear snapped. >> allegiant 1032 are you just going to push back into the gate? >> yes, ma'am. >> reporter: passengers deplaned and were told a second aircraft
7:17 am
was coming from las vegas. departure time 3:00 p.m. plane number two arrived but also had a mechanical problem. passengers were told plane number three should arrive from arizona sometime after 6:00. on board the third plane, there was this -- >> we had to return back to the gate for some more fuel, and we'll probably be pushing off the dwaet in another 30, 35 minutes now. >> reporter: by then passengers had lost all patience. >> imprisoned by allegiant airlines. >> so fed up with this airport. >> it's cruel and unusual. >> reporter: just before 9:00 p.m. flight 1032 finally took off, arriving in utah at 10:22, almost 13 hours after it was scheduled to leave. allegiant issued a statement saying in part every effort was made to keep the passengers as comfortable as possible. we never want to delay or inconvenience our passengers but the safety of our passengers and crew is our number-one
7:18 am
priority. for "cbs this morning," mark kelly, san francisco. >> what a story. and this morning about a dozen texas abortion clinics remain open after a federal judge struck down parts of a new anti-abortion law. it was set to go into effect today. protesters at the state capitol had rallied in recent months against one key requirement, doctors performing abortion procedures would need to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. on monday, a judge ruled the provision is without a rational basis and places a substantial obstacle in the path of a woman seeking an abortion. the state has already filed an appeal. time to show you some of this morning's headlines. "cbs this morning" shick says former congressman jesse jackson jr. reported to federal prison in north carolina, serving a 2 1/2-year sentence for misusing campaign funds. he surrendered yesterday. >> the "philadelphia inquirer" says penn state university will pay nearly $60 million to settle
7:19 am
child sex abuse cases. they involve 26 men who shay they were victims of former assistant football coach jerry sandusky. six other claims are unresolved. >> the "detroit free press" says "consumer reports" no longer recommends the three toyota models based on results of a new crash test by the insurance institute for highway safety. the honda accord, v-6, and the nissan altima are also off the list because of their poor showing in a reliability survey. "the wall street journal" says the end of internet cookies could be near. they track your online moves but microsoft, google and facebook are developing new ways to follow users and that has online

faced his greatest challenge in superstorm sandy. our own dr. jon lapook was there. that story is ahead. sources tell cbs news about an anticipated announce from the justice department. tech giant infosys will pay the biggest fine in history. john miller is assistant cia director. john, good morning. >> good morning. this is about infosys. it's the second largest software exporter and has about 30,000 workers in the u.s. in 2012 we reported the result of a cbs news investigation. based on allegations from a whistle-blower. he blamed the company was involved in a massive fraud that may have put thousands of americans out of work, all in the name of profit. jay palmer was a principal
7:32 am
consultant at infosys. after seeing what he described as systemic visa fraud to bring indian workers into the united states at lower wages, displacing american workers, he became a whistle-blower. what was the first thing that caught your attention? >> i had an employee over from india that had been over several times before he came up to me, he was literally in tears. he told me he was over here illegally. he didn't want to be here. he was worried that he would get caught. >> reporter: the scheme palmer says he uncovered involved bringing in indian workers to the u.s. under falsele pretenses, using visas claiming they had superb expertise that couldn't be found in the u.s. visas claiming they were just here for a meeting. and visas claiming they wouldn't work in the u.s. cbs news obtained these internal infosys documents that allegedly gave employees instructions on how to so then what's the motive to bring them in? you could hire an american who
7:33 am
is trained in that particular discipline and do better. >> purely profit. >> and palmer says some of the workers who claim to have special expertise actually had to be trained by the same american workers whose jobs they were taking. did you find that they were all people who had some special expertise that we couldn't find here? >> absolutely not. not even close. >> palmer says infosys executives knew about the fraudulent practices and continued them to increase competent profit. >> it's really about getting people over no matter what the -- no matter what the cost, or whatever. and i think that's the first time i heard the term you know americans are stupid. >> and they said that in reference to -- >> the law. getting around the system. yeah. >> at the time of our report infosys denied any intentional fraudulent practices. when we contacted them last night, they said they had no comment on the upcoming settlement. this is a $34 million fine we're being told by our sources.
7:34 am
>> so the question is is could the company look at this simply as a cost of doing business? >> i think when you're a $30 billion company, when you have $6 billion in sales every year $34 million is certainly the kind of hit you can take. and charlie, this is part of the larger discussion about settling with corporate america. is it the cost of doing business? or is the thing that changes behavior when somebody actually gets arrested or goes to jail so we'll see how this unfolds with the announcement tomorrow. and what the fallout is >> all right don, thank you. and the search continues this morning for two inmates who broke out of an oklahoma jail on sunday. but authorities are making some progress. two other convicts who escaped with the men are now back. we're outside the jail in oklahoma. manuel, good morning. good morning, nora. the search now involved several state and federal agencies including the u.s. marshals.

the two inmates who have been captured were brought through those gates back into the jail where the sheriff vows this time they won't be able to use the pipe system as a way out. these are new mug shots taken after they were recaptured. their escape from the caddo county jail lasted nearly 30 hours and ended at this convenience store 20 miles away. surveillance video shows the last moments of freedom. >> they walked in and we never seen them before so we kind of watched them to make sure they didn't steal anything. >> police were watching too. they had spotted the two going in. >> as soon as they walked out, and the cops were there, and that one just dropped his stuff and just stood there like that. and the other one took off running, went down the alley, and the cops pulled you know, their guns on them. >> reporter: the men were being held for burglary, drug and weapons convictions, and were about to be transferred to a state prison when they escaped early sunday. they stacked two jail-issued foot lockers on the ground to

data center that could house its computer and storage systems. or it could be a floating mobile google glass store participating the launch of google's most high profile new project. as speculation builds google has chosen to remain silent and is not responding to any inquiries about the barge. >> if you don't comment then at least you, you know you still do get to control the message to some extent. >> reporter: but the tech giant has a few hurdles to cross before anything can be revealed. according to the san francisco bay conservation and development commission, google currently does not have a permit to operate anything on the bay. >> we don't know if this vessel's purpose is to maritime related or whether it's not maritime related. and so that has to be discovered as part of the permit process. >> reporter: so perhaps google's latest attempt to literally barge its way in to san francisco with a top secret project might ultimately be sunk. for "cbs this morning" john blackstone, san francisco. >> so what is google up to? >> i know. >> i'm looking forward to

8:02 am
it is. what the folks in washington should be doing is doing their jobs. that means the folks in the white house and the folks in congress. obama is in so much trouble he called hillary clinton and said, can you start early? this morning's eye opener at 8:00 is presented by bene fiber. white house officials said president obama always knew the affordable care act would require existing health care policies to change. we have new evidence of how big those changes will be. >> as jan crawford reports for every american getting health care insurance under the new law at least three are losing their current coverage. >> we have real numbers and this is just the tip of the iceberg. cbs news has confirmed with insurance companies across the country that more than 2 million people are getting notices they no longer can keep their existing plans.
8:03 am
in california 279,000. in michigan 140,000. florida 300,000 and in new jersey 800,000. and those numbers are certain to go even higher. some companies tell us they sent letters but won't tell us how many. obama care forces many of them to drop their plans that don't meet the laws ten minimum standards including maternity care emergency visits and pediatric dental care. that means consumers need to sign on to new plans. industry experts say about half of the people getting the letters will pay more and half will pay less. for cbs this morning jan crawford washington. new jersey governor chris christie responded to reports that 800,000 people in new jersey will no longer be able to keep current health insurance

plans. >> you can see all of the problems with this. what the federal government wanted us to do in the state was to take on the burden ourselves without telling us how much it would cost or what authority to run our exchanges. that is why myself and 33 other governors both republican and democrat. the problem is people were not told the truth. they were told they could keep their policies if they like them. you hear hundreds of thousands of people being told they couldn't. the white house needs to square that. a senior administration official is facing congress being questioned by the house weighs and means committee on what happened on the health care enrollment website. the s&p 500 index opened at a record high but millions of potential investors are not sharing in the gain. americans have $10 trillion in low interest bank accounts and
8:05 am
america spent more time planning vacations and purchases like smart phones and cars rather than planning for retirement. welcome. >> thank you. >> why are people saving so much in this country? >> people are not saving enough and they are not investing enough. so we have over 10 trillion sitting in cash. more people are going to be turning 65 than ever in history over the next ten years. on top of that they are going to live longer. so we did a survey because 2/3 of the assets at black rock are retirement assets. what are people doing? they are not investing. you can't invest for the future in the future. the average person has less than $25,000 for retirement. that is not going to be enough. >> how much should we have? >> it depends how old you are. if you are turning 65 the number
8:06 am
is about $500,000. and, in fact what we are trying to do is educate people around the world and we created a website which you can get on determine, actually what you need per month once you are 65 or older. it will tell you how much you need today or you can put in how much you have today and it will tell you how long that will last month by month. and this is very important that we get this message out that people need to invest now because in this survey the one thing we found and this is where wisdom comes in is everyone of the retires said they wished they had saved more for the future. >> it is worth reminding because people are spending more time planning vacations and thinking about which smart phones and cars to buy than they are about their retirement. how often should you be thinking about your retirement and planning for that? >> this is very important that you get invested today.
8:07 am
the earlier the better because the money will work for you. because so much is sitting in cash earning 0 that over a 20 year period with inflation you will lose half that value. one other thing interesting in the survey the people most concerned are 45 to 55. that is when people start to say i better look at my bank account and think about retiring. earlier they are not thinking about it. and even later they have already taken care of it. >> what about those people? why are they keeping money in cash? because they don't trust wall street? >> over the last several years people have lost a lot of money in the market. however, waiting in cash is not the answer. the market is up again this year. it was up last year. you have missed two years that is really hard to make back especially in a very low interest rate environment. we need to bringt that cash out in a less risky way where people can earn a better return.
8:08 am
>> the question is people sitting on a lot of cash maybe not sitting on not sitting on trusting investments. you are arguing there is a better way to do it than simply sitting on cash. >> there is a better way than cash. there are certainly ways to invest in the equity markets with large cap companies that pay good dividends. remember you are getting four percent more. you need to use longevity as a tool and invest for the long term. where people get confused it's not timing the market it's time in the market. they should use this longevity to their advantage and get invested. they are not day traders. they shouldn't be looking at the markets every day but invest in good companies that pay a dividend over a long period of time. there are many tools to limit

the risk but at the same time really help yourself for the future. >> so take your money out from under the mattress. >> exactly. >> thank you. good to see you. this morning a brazilian surfer is waiting to learn if he conquered a record wave that could be 100 feet high. it was one of the life changing moments for carlos burle. setting what may be a world record. carlos burle is the man who road the big one this week. all of the energy goes to one place he says and all of that power becomes seen if you fall you hurt yourself you die. the jet skis are also the rescue

and john tierney. this news flash, women can be bitchy. is that what this is? >> indeed. i'm going to get e-mails telling me i can't believe you just said that. >> what does that mean? >> we exclude people from the peer group. we give the silent treatment. the customary, i won't speak to you for three weeks then you have to figure out why i'm mad at you. >> or what's wrong? nothing. >> nothing. the appearance suggest that it's promiscuous. >> do men do this? >> they do this but we do it indirectly. will men do it against others a lot of times, it's direct. it's verbal. i didn't like what you did. with us we don't say it so directly. >> so how did you do this study? there's one study that we did where we had women come to the lab, and they thought they were going to be talking about how women deal with friendship.
8:34 am
and in fact we had a sexy confederate interrupt their conversation. so somebody who was dressed in a sexual provocative outfit. we secretly videoed taped and audiotaped their reaction to this individual. almost everybody except for two were indirectly against her. >> why did you think it was important to do this study? >> most of what we know about women's aggression and competition is anecdotal. so we think we know and is that really the case. we needed to have science to support what our anecdotal evidence is. certainly, i can appreciate it's a little awkward to hear that women behave poorly, we don't like to be told the truth. but it's important, we have girls who take their lives over this about the way they're treated. recently in florida there was that young woman, i think she was about 14 that took her life
8:35 am
because -- >> bullying. >> yeah she was being bullied but indirectly. they were starting rumors about her and calling her out on the internet. so you can't change what you don't acknowledge. >> why are men different? >> well, men basically have to compete in the status hierarchy for men. they're competing for resources. for women, it's traditionally been they have more of a social network. whereas, men have more direct confrontations. what i found interesting here men get blamed for pressuring women to be thin or for shaming people. you know with people it really shows this is intrasexual competition with women. men want women to be faithful. they want their partner to be faithful. but they don't have a big problem with someone else being promiscuous. that's not above, that's a feature. that's like a fantasy. so the shaming is much like that indirect regression that women go through. the same for thinness.
8:36 am
men don't want women to be super thin. their ideal women is someone who is average weight or slightly above average. they want beyonce or jennifer lopez not ally mcbeal. >> indirect inaggression ever work? >> works. it's so effective. absolutely effective. because if you think about if you're compete for mates, let's say. you like a boy and somebody else likes a boy. you tell the boy that you think that person is a -- that person is less attractive that shows and debates that person's individual. so it works. when somebody gives us the silent treatment it really does hurt us when people call us names and say things behind our

what's the healthiest and best way for them to grow so that they really become cauldrons of prosperity and cities of opportunity? what we have found is that if that family is moved into safe, clean affordable housing, places that have access to great school systems access to jobs and multiple transportation modes then the neighborhood begins to thrive and then really really take off. the oxygen of community redevelopment is financing. and all this rebuilding that happened could not have happened without organizations like citi. citi has formed a partnership with our company so that we can take all the lessons from the revitalization of urban america to other cities. so we are now working in chicago and in washington, dc and newark. it's amazing how important safe, affordable housing is to the future of our society.
