Program Segments

Wednesday news

Broken promises: Pressure continues to  mount on President Obama after an assertion the he made more than 40 times proved not to be true. Millions of Americans now regard his words as, at best, a broken promise and at worst, a deliberate deception. A new Quinnipiac poll places the president’s approval at 39%, his lowest mark ever.

Obamacare: Former president Bill Clinton joins the ranks of Democrats piling on the White House over the president’s claims about Americans keeping their health insurance. Clinton says the president should keep his promise, even if it means changing the law

Philippines: Filipinos who weathered one the most powerful storms ever are still in harms way as the lack of sanitation in Tacloban puts the nearly ten million people affected impacted by the disaster at risk of disease. In addition, with Tacloban’s airport barely functioning and only military flights coming in, getting supplies to the needy is a logistical challenge.

Business/economy: Stocks were trending down most of the day but as business reporter Warren Smith reports, the skittishness came as a result of a generally slow news day in the markets, as well as a wait-and-see attitude before speeches by two Fed officials. 

Obamacare by morning

Although the administration has steadfastly refused to release official enrollment numbers, according to an insurance industry report, only 50,000 people signed up for Obamacare in October on state-run exchanges. TW&E’s Jim Henry provides an update and further analysis on the status of Obamacare. 

Commentary: The influence of C.S. Lewis

Fifty years ago this month, the world lost John F. Kennedy, author Aldous Huxley, and author C.S. Lewis. Commentator Cal Thomas appreciates the great Christian apologist C.S. Lewis.
