time to catch up. if you are driving home, the roads will be fine. but the airports for the remainder of today and tomorrow will be rough. the yellow indicates two inches of rain. the wind will be a factor as we go through over the next couple of days. winds gusting that high. that means it causes big problems. into tomorrow evening, thursday thanksgiving day, fregretchen, everybody is looking pretty good. >> my sister is lucky, she got into new york just in time. we want to hear from you. you can send us your photos. go to my facebook page, we'll read your comments and show your photos later on in the show. president obama wrapping up a three day fund raising tour in
the east coast. he is going to meet with industry execs before giving a speech on the economy. you couldn't go out to california? >> i wouldn't want to do the traveling. good afternoon to you. today's visit to the hollywood farm run by his most prominent campaign donors. he attempts to do this on a day when the conference board reports to us that consumer confidence hits lowest level since april. economists interpret that as hiring and wages. so did the rocky roll out of obama care. a program that impact s one sixh of the economy. last night's party held as the
mansion of magic johnson, he framed the success of the program as a moral issue. he said: meantime, on a conference call with state and local officials, health and human services secretary said it will boast a different user experience. >> it is one of the few places he can go and be useful and helpful to democrats. he is visrating his presidency and ratings so the one thing that he can do to help is go out and raise a bunch of money for the party committee. that is what he has been doing for the last couple of days.
>> government figures showing that 7.5 million seniors have benefited from barack obama to prescription drugs. gre grethen? >> thank you so much james. >> despite his promise to get affordable health care to every american, think tank tells a different story. in most states barack obama will increase by an average of 41%. only eight states will see a reduction. good to see you david. good to be here gretchen. >> what do you make of that study. 41% increase really? >> what we know about the affordable care act is it is going to have a different affect on consumers and different mace secs. it could determine the outcome for you personally.
we know that if you are in the individual market where you are phasing cancelled plans and you have to sign up for insurance policies you will be paying more than you used to. >> how can you call it the affordable care act when 41 states will see an increase. >> i'm asking how the administration can call it the affordable care act. >> the administration claims that insurance the price for insurance is growing at a slower rate than it would have if the law had not been put into effect. we short of forget all of this, when the president first started campaigning or pushing for health care reform generally, theficial response to health care reform was positive.
although americans liked their plans or their doctors, they didn't necessarily like playing for them. >> this was promises that it would be a $2500 decrease per family per year. and it is not panning out. i want to move out to aarp launching campaign offering free e-cards saying the bank of mom and dad may be closed get health insurance and i'll admit that you are my favorite child. it is cute, will it work? >> we'll find out. if people think the law is good and if people believe like the program is worth participating in, it is going to work. if you are young and you look at the penalty for not signing up and it is low, you are likely to
look at the marketing plan. what they need to do to move young and healthy people to move into the marketplace is to get it into their head they are going to save money and save trouble by signing up now. if you are guaranteed insurance no matter what you do, there is no reason to start paying a couple,0 thousand dollars a yea insure. >> maybe this e card will get you going. you are the reason that i drink wine out of a box. maybe that will get kids to feel sorry for their parents. >> happy thanksgiving. >> the president, and congress on track for one of its least productive years in history.

>> silgt piegnature piece of legislation based on a series that we now know to be lies. you have to call into question whether president obama would have won the election. given that they knew this should they be held accountable after that. >> the midterms are coming up real quick. a cnn poll shows the gop has
catapulted over the democrats now. the reason i say that, just a month ago they were ten points down. between now and election time both could go up and down. it really will depend not just about the affordable care act. still, you have to remember the last election most of the states that he won over romney were states that were upset about romney's comment about the 47%. saying that they will no longer print pictures to them by the
white house photographers, the news out of chicago was the first to do this. now the usa today joining the band. so chris, will more follow suit. >> president obama should have a photo. >> come on chris, this is a disgrace. >> and the news media really is the guilty party here for five years, they have been taking these photos and treating them like a news product and it is
being treated like a tac ooma washington photo. >> your thoughts? you are supposed to report the news to the readers. i feel that you have to have a certain level of respect for the readers. it is irresponsible to the readers. where does this go next. they are not going to cover when jay carney is speaking in washington? >> you are missing the first part of the story. which is that they are not allowed into cover the news that they want to. that is the difference here, we are not going to be handed the photos that some would say make the president look good. chris and leslie happy thanksgiving we'll see you soon.

it has helped prevent a second 9/11. one of the reasons we see al qaeda today is because president obama is not focused on that intelligence. we know now based on the data that about a third of the detainees who have been released are confirmed are suspected but we don't know who came out of the cia release program. >> wow fascinating details. thank you so much. >> a deadly storm system barrelling towards the east coast now. we'll tell you who may have to cancel their holiday plans. the wife of a u.s. pastor being held in a u.s. prison. our faith panel is here. we are looking at how the president is dealing with christian persecutions around the world.
