7:04 am
>> if you like your doctor or health care plan you can keep it. >> reporter: he really didn't mean it. >> 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
7:05 am
insurance companies have no choice. obama care forces them to drop many of their plans that don't 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 losers here. but because of all the website problems it's really hard to find out who all the winners are because they don't even know it themselves. >> now for people who have gotten the letters, that broken website say real problem. they don't know what to do, if they'll get subsidies. then there are other people who have very good insurance and they're being told they can't keep it. industry experts say for everyone, the best get to call your insurance companies to get

7:07 am
continue to develop and expand. that's why i'm issuing a national review to what they're able to do doesn't necessarily mean that they should be doing. >> reporter: the president would not say he knew that the nsa has been monitoring german chancellor merkel since 2002. in a statement released on - monday dianne feinstein said it is clear to me that certain surveillance activities have been in effect for more than a decade. and that the senate intelligence committee was not satisfactory informed. therefore, our oversights need to be. elmar brok said he and his allies were not satisfied. >> if they spy on you, it's
7:08 am
difficult to talk in an open way anymore, and i think they have to make a clear distinction between fighting terrorism, but not spying on friends. >> reporter: national security adviser 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 all intelligence gathering is expected by the end of the year. european lawmakers will meet with senator feinstein who said she's totally opposed to spying on allies. she said the white house told her it will not. whether it will be will be a question for the director of national intelligence and the nsa chief when they testify on capitol hill today. vigils and prayer services will be held along the east coast today to mark one year from superstorm sandy.
7:09 am
it first came ashore in snchnew jersey killing 71 people in that state. 26,000 people are still out their homes. in a conversation with new jersey governor chris christie we begin with elan quijano in seaside heights, new jersey. good morning. >> good morning to you, charlie and norah. sandy was the biggest storm ever to hit the state of new jersey costing new jersey $40 billion in damage. recovery has been slow and for many it's far from over. when superstorm sandy slam issed ashore last october, more than 100 miles of new jersey's coastline bore the brunt of it. communities sliced in half homes crushed. others simply washed away. in seaside heights, the boardwalk and heart of the shoreline's economy took a pounding. >> this is our lives. this is how we feed our families, this is how we support
7:10 am
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 nearly 70 businesses along the boardwalk in september. authorities blamed the fire on electrical wiring damaged by sandy. >> totally on the road to recovery, and after 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 already about where we live. >> reporter: before and after photos show however new jersey has come. roads broken up by storm surge are 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 to mention surveyed 61% were somewhat or very dissatisfied with the recovery efforts. only 7% were very satisfied.
7:11 am
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 hopeful that every day we're going to be better than we are today. >> later tonight, some jersey residents plan to mark the anniversary in an unique way. they'll gather along the shoreline shining flash lights a symbol of hope after what was a dark time. charlie, norah. >> elaine quijano, thank you. joining us from seaside park new jersey governor christie. 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 rebuilt. so many businesses that have come back online. but i also know that we still have a lot more work to do. we still have a lot of people who are frustrated and are not back in their homes.
7:12 am
and knew initiative is to get all of those people back in in their homes frpt beginning, charlieics i said this was an 18 to 24-month process. there are frustrations and challenges that remain and my job is to address those. >> why are there 26,000 people still homes? >> well there's a number of reasons. first, let's start off with of the fact that it took 92 days for the congress to act on aid for sandy victims. that's unprecedented. it was 10 days for katrina and 17 days for gustav. you remember me being pretty exercised about it at the time. the first dollars for new jersey didn't flow to new jersey until the end of may. >> governor it's 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 you can explain that? >> well norah, first off, i don't know when you'd call $8
7:13 am
billion a trickle but $8 billion has been distributed in new jersey. despite the challenges i just talked about, between aid from fema and the sandy package, $8 billion has been distributed $51 billion available, $9 billion went to the federal program. we're going continue to work to make that even better. you've got to work with your partners in the federal government. and as all you can 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 you had set up a state-run insurance exchange so 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 ourselves without telling us how
7:14 am
much it would cost or what authority we would have to actually run our exchanges. that's why myself and 33 other governor, both republican and 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. 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 beforehand. 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 want to crack down on the nsa would regret it when the next attack came. do you want to suggest to america that nsa was -- should be doing everything it was doing, and it's necessary for america's national security? even if it involved tapping the cell phones of foreign leaders? >> i'll tell you, charlie, what the folks in washington should be doing is doing their job.
7:15 am
and that means the folks at the white house and the folks in congress. >> i remember, as you well do when hurricane sandy hit and the president came to new jersey. you welcomed him with open arms and you believed in the cooperation with the ferg. but this morning, you seem to be attacking the ging the federal government at every level? >> charlie, all i ask that people do their jobs every day. i'm proud here in new jersey the state government has been working extraordinarily well with local groups and organizations and everyday citizens 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 to give you an answer. so it's about the questions you're asking this morning. not about my answers. >> all right governor well how about this you look great. how's your health and how's your weight loss going? >> my health is really good. we released a medical report on
7:16 am
friday that laid all that out for the people of new jersey in the runup to the election. but they've also seen me do the job for the last four years. 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. you know we're just going to continue on the program. >> governor good to see you. thanks for joining us. and we're thinking about everybody in new jersey and new york that's been affected still by superstorm sandy. thank you. >> norah, charlie thank you for having us on this morning. passengers outraiding over nearly 12 hours of delay on allegiant airlines. they faced a day of frustrations at oakland's airport. mark kelly at the station kpix looks at what went wrong. >> reporter: allegiant air's twice weekly flight from okdland to provo, utah is usually a quick 90 minutes. but at 9:30 on monday morning, shortly after flight 32 pushed back from the gate, a cable
7:17 am
controlling the front landing gear snapped. >> flight 32 you pushed back into the gate? >> yes, ma'am. >> reporter: passengers were told a second airplane coming from las vegas. departure time, 3:00 p.m. plane number 2 arrived but had a problem. plane number 3 arrived 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 back the gate 30, 35 minutes now. >> reporter: by then passengers had lost all patience. >> i've been imprisoned by allegiant airlines. >> i'm fed up. >> 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.

8:01 am
today's "eye opener" at 8:00. we reached out to insurance companies across the country to find out some real number us. >> more than 2 million americans have been told they cannot renew their current health insurance policy. >> and that is more than triple the number of people said to be buying insurance under obama care. >> sandy was the biggest and fiercest storm ever to hit new jersey. recovery has been slow. >> you got to work with your partners in the federal government, as all you can tell from looking at washington, d.c., that's sometimes not the easiest thing in the world. european lawmakers will meet with senator feinstein who said she's totally opposed to spying on allies. she said the white house told her the sbieg stop. the two inmates have been captured were brought through those gates back into the jail where the sheriff vows this time they will not be able to use the pipe system as a way out. tech giant infosys will pay $30 million to settle the fraud. >> you can hire an american

8:03 am
country that more than 2 million people are getting notices they no longer can keep their existing plans. 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. obama care forces them to drop many of their plans that don't meet the law's ten minimum standards include magazine ternt care emergency visits mental health treatments 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. now industry experts say about half of the people getting these letters will pay more. half will pay less thanks to taxpayer subsidies. for "cbs this morning," jan crawford, washington. this morning, new jersey governor chris christie responded to jan's report that 800,000 people in new jersey will no longer be able to keep
8:04 am
their current health insurance plans. christie told us it would not have made a difference if he set up a state insurance exchange. >> you can see all the problems with this. what the federal government wanted to us do in the states whats to take on this burden ourselves without telling us how much it would cost or what authority we would actually have to run our exchanges. that's why myself and 33 other governors, both republican and democrat said no to a state exchange. the real problem that people weren't told the truth. you can remember they were told they would be able to keep their policies if they liked them. now you hear hundreds of thousands of people across the country being told they couldn't. the white house needs to square that. >> this morning, a senior obama official medicare chief marilyn tabbener will tace congress. she'll be faced with what happens to the health care website. the s&p opened at a record high this morning but millions of investors are not sharing in

the gains. a nah new sur ray by the investment firm black rock that americans have $10 trillion in cash saved in low interest accounts. the president of blackrock one of the world's largest assessment management companies. welcome. >> thank you. >> why are people saving so much in this country? >> well people are not saving enough and they're not investing enough. so we have over $10 trillion as you said sitting in cash. unfortunately, more people are going to be turning 65 than ever in history over the next ten years. and on top of that they're going to live longer. so we did a survey because two-thirds of the assets at blackrock are retirement assets. what are people doing? they're not investing. you can't invest for the future in the future. so this was very surprising. the average person has less than $25,000 for retirement.
8:06 am
that is not going to be enough. >> how much should we have? >> well it depends how old you are, of course. but if you're turning 65 the number is about $500,000. and in fact what we're 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're 65 or older. and it will tell you how much you need today. or, you can go in and 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 have found, and this is where wisdom comes in. is every one of these retirees said they wished they had saved more for the future. >> it is worth reminding because as your survey pointed out people are spending more time planning vacations and thinking about which smartphones to buy,
8:07 am
which cars to buy than they are about their retirement. how often you should be thinking about your retirement? >> this is very important you that get invested today. the earlier the better because money will work four. earning zero over a 20-year period just over enflation, you will lose half that value. one of the other things interesting in the survey the people most concerned, 45 to 55 that's when people start to say, wait a second i better look at my bank account and think about retiring. earlier, they're not thinking about it. and even later, they've already taken care of it. >> well what about those people? i mean why are they keeping money in cash? because they don't trust wall street? >> well, one is over the last several year people have lost a lot of money in the market. however, waiting in cash is not the answer earning zero. the mark is up again this year. it's up last year. so you've missed two years. it's really hard to make that back especially in a very low
8:08 am
interest rate environment. we need to bring that cash out in a less risky way where people can earn a better return than sitting in cash. >> people who are sitting on a lot of cash may not be sitting on it because they don't trust investments or what might happen to it. but you're arguing there's a better way than simply sitting on cash. they may believe sitting on cash is saving it and preserving it. >> yes. now, there is a better way in cash. there's certainly ways to invest in the equity markets with large cap companies that pay good dividends. even a company paying a full percent dif vidend. remember, you need to use longevity as a tool and investment for the long term. where people get confused, it's not timing the market. it's time in the market. they're not day traders. they shouldn't be looking at the
8:09 am
markets dave but invest in good companies that pay a dividend over a long period of time. so there are many tools that you can limit the risk but at the same time, help yourself for the future. >> take your money out from underneath the mattress. >> exactly. >> thank you, good to see. you. this morning, a brazilian big wave surfer is waiting to learn if he conquered a big wave 100 feet high. it was one of the life changing moments for carlos burle. >> reporter: as mad as this may seem the tiney smudge on this wall of water say surfer. the monsters are generated off the coast portugal forced by an underwater canyon on to the beach. carlos burle is the man who rode the big one this week. all the energy goes to one place, burle says all of that power becomes science.

treated. recently in florida there was that young woman, i think she was about 14 that took her life 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
8:36 am
feature. that's like a fantasy. so the shaming is much like that indirect regression that women go through. the same for thinness. 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.
8:37 am
when somebody gives us the silent treatment it really does hurt us when people call us names and say things behind our back, we become depressed and anxious and suicidal. >> we stop it how? >> by acknowledging it. by maybe actually being strong enough and competent enough -- i guess strong would be a better word to accept that conflict is part of life. that sometimes you're going to say something that somebody doesn't like and it's not the end of the world that they tell you. that sort of thing. we're so sensitive, and i think we need to toughen up a little bit. >> boyce are oblivious, it doesn't work with boys. it goes right over their head. they really respond to i'm going to challenge you on the playground. i'm going to do better than you on the team. >> and they nail it right then. boyce don't pout the way girls do. >> and it's done with. as soon as they say it right, it's dealt with. we do that three week pouting period.
