TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" THE

HEALTH CARE ROLL OUT HEADS TO

CAPITOL HILL.

WHAT THOSE BEHIND THE WEBSITE

TOLD CONGRESS ABOUT THE

TECHNICAL ISSUES.

PLUS INVESTIGATING IRS.

LOOK AT THE LACK OF BACKLASH

AFTER THE AGENCY TARGETED

CONSERVATIVE GROUPS.

AND SHOES THAT ARE STYLISH

AND COMFORTABLE.

THE GOOD NEWS THAT COULD HELP

YOUR ACHING FEET.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH."

LAWMAKERS ON CAPITOL HILL HELD

THE FIRST HEARINGS ON THE

'OBAMACARE' WEBSITE ROLL OUT.

GOOD EVENING I AM MARK MARTIN.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

THE HEALTH CARE.GOV SITE IS

PLAGUED WITH PROBLEMS SINCE IT

WAS LAUNCHED.

PEOPLE WANT ANSWERS, GEORGE

THOMAS IS FOLLOWING IT FROM THE

NEWS ROOM, GEORGE?

REPORTER: LAWMAKERS ON BOTH

SIDES WANT TO KNOW WHAT LED TO

THE MASSIVE TECHNICAL GLITCHES

WITH THE WEBSITE.

AS ONE HOUSE REPUBLICAN LEADER

PUT IT, THE 'OBAMACARE' HAS BEEN

NOTHING SHORT OF A DEBACLE.

FINGER POINTED THE MOMENT THE

HEARINGS CAME TO ORDER.

WE WERE PROMISED A WEBSITE

WHERE PEOPLE COULD EASILY

COMPARE PLANS AND COSTS.

500 MILLION DOLLARS LATER, WE

FIND AMERICAN PUBLIC DUMPED WITH

THE ULTIMATE CASH FOR CLUNKERS

EXCEPT THEY HAD TO PAY THE CASH

AND STILL GOT THE CLUNKER.

REPORTER: DEMOCRATS

ACKNOWLEDGE THE PROBLEMS.

WE WANT TO KNOW WHAT IS WRONG

AND HOW WE CAN HELP.

REPORTER: BUT ACCUSE

REPUBLICANS FOR HOLDING THE

HEARINGS FOR MOTIVES.

REPUBLICANS DON'T HAVE CLEAN

HANDS.

THEIR EFFORT ISN'T TO MAKE THIS

BETTER BUT TO USE THE WEBSITE

AND THE GLITCHES AS AN EXCUSE TO

DEFUND OR REPEAL 'OBAMACARE.'

REPORTER: FACT REMAINS THREE

WEEKS AFTER A LAUNCH AND PEOPLE

HAVE PROBLEMS GETTING ESTIMATES.

HEALTHCARE.GOV WAS LAUNCHED,

MANY WERE OVERWHELMED.

REPORTER: UNNAMED SOURCE

TELLS CNN THE NATION'S TOP

HEALTH INSURERS KNEW THERE WERE

PROBLEMS PRIOR TO THE LAUNCH.

IT IS CLEAR THE FOLKS GAVE A FAR

ROSIER PICTURE TO THE WHITE

HOUSE.

AN INSIDER TOLD CNN NO ONE

WANTED TO SAY YOUR LEGISLATIVE

ACHIEVEMENT MAY NOT GO SO WELL.

STILL EXECUTIVES TESTIFIED THEIR

OWN INTERNAL TESTING WORKED AND

ADMITTED MORE SYSTEM CHECKS

SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE BEFORE THE

LAUNCH.

THE GOVERNMENT'S LAST MINUTE

DECISION REQUIRING CONSUMERS TO

REGISTER CONTRIBUTEED TO THE

INITIAL BREAKDOWN.

THIS MAY HAVE DRIVEN DOWN

HIGHER USE IF CONSUMERS COULD

WINDOW SHOP ANONYMOUSLY.

THE PANEL ASSURED IT IS

IMPROVING EVERYDAY.

AS PAINFUL AS IT SOUNDS THE

SYSTEM IS WORKING, PEOPLE ARE

ENROLLING AND WILL BE ABLE TO AT

A FASTER PACE.

REPORTER: HEAD OF HUMAN

HEALTH AND SERVICES KATHLEEN

SEBELIUS WAS INVITED TO SPEAK

BUT WILL INSTEAD TESTIFY NEXT

WEEK.

WENDY?

GEORGE, THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION HAS DECIDED TO

GIVE AMERICANS MORE TIME BEFORE

FACING THE PENALTIES FOR NOT

DOING SO.

IT IS NOT BECAUSE OF THE WEBSITE

GLITCHES.

WHY THE EXTRA TIME THEN?

REPORTER: WENDY, IT HAS BEEN

PUSHED BACK TO MARCH 1ST.

THE WHITE HOUSE IS DOING IT TO

HELP CLEAR UP CONFUSION OVER THE

TIMING OF THE NEW HEALTH CARE

MEASURE.

NOT BECAUSE OF THE GLITCHES.

GEORGE THOMAS THANK YOU FOR

THE REPORT.

OVERSEAS THE DAMAGE FROM

AMERICA'S MASSIVE SPYING PROGRAM

CONTINUES TO PILE UP.

NOW THE GERMAN FOREIGN MINISTRY

SUMMONED U.S. AMBASSADOR.

AFTER REPORTS AMERICAN

INTELLIGENCE MAY HAVE TARGETED

CHANCELLOR MERCKEL'S CELL PHONE.

REPORTER: THEY RECEIVED

INFORMATION THAT CHANCELLOR

ANGELA MERCKEL'S CELL MAY HAVE

BEEN TARGETED.

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS PERSONALLY

DEALING WITH THE FALL OUT.

ALL I CAN TELL YOU WHAT THE

PRESIDENT TOLD THEM.

REPORTER: THE U.S. IS NOT

MONITORING AND WILL NOT MONITOR.

HE DIDN'T SAY THE U.S. HAD NEVER

MONITORED MERCKEL'S

COMMUNICATIONS.

IT IS NOT JUST GERMANY, MEXICO

AND BRAZIL LAUNCHING

INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE U.S. SPY

PROGRAM.

FRANCE, ONE OF AMERICA'S OLDEST

ALLIES IS ALSO UPSET.

ITS GOVERNMENT DEMANDED AN

EXPLANATION FROM U.S. AMBASSADOR

AFTER REPORTS SURFACED THAT THE

NSA COLLECTED MORE THAN 70

MILLION FRENCH TELEPHONE RECORDS

OVER A 30-DAY PERIOD.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HAS

REJECTED SOME OF THOSE AL

ALLEGATIONS AND KEEPS INSISTING

IT IS WORKING.

JOHN KERRY: PROTECTING OUR

CITIZENS IN TODAY'S WORLD IS A

VERY CHALLENGING TASK.

WE IN THE UNITED STATES ARE

CURRENTLY REVIEWING THE WAY WE

GATHER INTELLIGENCE.

REPORTER: DAMAGE FROM NORMER

NSA EMPLOYEE EDWARD SNOWDEN

CONTINUE TO MOUNT.

KATELYN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

TOUGH NEW PRIVACY RULES

SHARED WITH NON EU COUNTRIES AS

WELL AS ALLOW EU CITIZENS

REQUEST THAT THEIR DIGITAL

TRACES BE ERASED AND 100 MILLION

EUROS FOR ANYONE WHO BREAKS THE

RULES.

WASHINGTON HAS BEEN FOCUSSED

ON OTHER ISSUES.

SOME PEOPLE ARE STILL TRYING TO

FIND OUT WHAT THE IRS WAS DOING

WHEN IT TARGETED TEA PARTY

GROUPS.

SCANDAL HAS LED TO SOME

INFORMATI

INVESTIGATIONS.

SO FAR NOT MUCH IS KNOWN.

REPORTER: WHEN THE IRS

SCANDAL BROKE, REPUBLICANS AND

DEMOCRATS CRIED FOUL.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: THAT IS

OUTRAGEOUS.

MY QUESTION IS NOT WHO IS

GOING TO RESIGN, IT IS WHO IS

GOING TO JAIL?

REPORTER: ELLIANA JOHNSON

TELLS CBN NEWS, FIVES MONTHS

AFTER THE IRS ADMITTING

TARGETING GROUPS AFTER TAX

EXEMPT STATUS AND DESPITE THE

PRESIDENT'S PROMISES IT DOESN'T

SEEM LIKE THERE IS AN IN DEPTH

INVESTIGATION UNDERWAY TO GET AT

THE TRUTH.

I KNOW FROM A SOURCE IN THE

IRS, PEOPLE WITHIN THE IRS HAVE

BEEN INTERVIEWED BY THE FBI.

THOUGH I HEAR FROM TEA PARTY

GROUPS THEY HAVE NOT BEEN

CONTACTED.

LAWYERS FOR THE TEA PARTY AND

TEA PARTY GROUPS HAVE YET TO

HEAR.

SEEMS LIKE THERE IS SOME SORT OF

FBI INVESTIGATION HAPPENING BUT

NOT INCREDIBLY DEEP OUR THOROUGH

ONE.

REPORTER: LAWMAKERS HAVE

ISSUES SUBPOENAS ON THE

INAPPROPRIATE OF CONSERVATIVE

AND TEA PARTY GROUPS.

I HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING

WRONG.

REPORTER: THEY HAVE BEEN

REPORTING FOR LOUIS LEARNER HAS

SINCE RESIGNED.

NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR

MARRIAGE IS SUING IRS FOR

PUBLICALLY DISCLOSING PRIVATE

PROTECTED INVESTIGATION ABOUT

DONORS AND AMERICAN CENTER FOR

LAW AND JUSTICE REPRESENTING 40

CONSERVATIVE GROUPS IN 22 STATES

CITING TOP U.S. WORKERS.

AGENCIES WHO AREN'T SUPPOSED TO

BE INVOLVED IN POLITICS CAN'T BE

-- DEMOCRATS HAVE TRIED TO

MAKE THIS ABOUT WAS THERE A

WHITE HOUSE CONNECTION OR NOT?

IF THERE WAS IT IS NOT WORTH

INVESTIGATING.

THE SCANDAL IS ABOUT THE

INHERENT FEDERAL BUREAUCRACY.

REPORTER: JOHN JESSUP, CBN

NEWS, WASHINGTON.

I DON'T PUT MUCH TRUST IN

WHAT THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

IS DOING.

PRESIDENT SAID HE WAS GOING TO

GET TO THE BOTTOM.

FOUR WEEKS LATER THEY WERE

CALLING IT A PHONY SCANDAL.

THE FACT THAT IRS IS GOING TO BE

DEALING WITH 'OBAMACARE,'

UNBELIEVABLY POOR ROLL OUT OF

THE AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE ACT

WHICH APPEARS TO BE NEITHER

AFFORDABLE OR GIVING MUCH CARE.

IT IS NOT A GOOD SITUATION FOR

AMERICAN PEOPLE.

FOR MORE OF THE INTERVIEW

WITH JAY, VISIT CBNNEWS.COM.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: WE SHOULD

PASS IMMIGRATION REFORM.

IT IS GOOD FOR OUR ECONOMY.

IT IS GOOD FOR OUR NATIONAL

SECURITY.

GOOD FOR OUR PEOPLE.

AND WE SHOULD DO IT THIS YEAR.

THANK YOU.

HE IS ASKING CONGRESS TO PASS

COMPREHENSIVE LEGISLATION BY THE

END OF THE YEAR URGING LAWMAKERS

TO SEE IT AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO

SHOW AMERICANS THAT GOVERNMENT

CAN ACTUALLY SOLVE PROBLEMS.

SENATE PASSED A BILL IN JUNE BUT

STALLED IN THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES.

SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER BELIEVES

THE HOUSE CAN TAKE ACTION BEFORE

2014.

MANY HOUSE REPUBLICAN AREN'T

READY TO SUPPORT THE PRESIDENT'S

PLAN.

NO SWEEPING IMMIGRATION

LEGISLATION HAS BEEN PASSED

SINCE 1986.

COMING UP, A LOOK AT WHAT IS

BEHIND A RECENT RISE IN

ANTI-SEMITISM.

NEARLY SEVEN DECADES AFTER

THE HOLOCAUST, WE LIVE IN A DAY

WHERE ANTI-SEMITISM IS ON THE

RISE AND SOME WORRY ANOTHER

HOLOCAUST IS WITHIN THE REALM OF

POSSIBILITY.

MOST DANGEROUS THING IS WHAT

COULD HAPPEN AGAIN.

I DON'T SEE IT VERY FAR OR

IMPOSSIBLE.

ISRAEL HAS EXPRESSED CONCERN

OVER TERROR GROUPS LIKE

HEZBOLLAH THAT HAVE MISSILES

THAT COULD HIT ANYWHERE INSIDE

THE JEWISH STATE.

HERE TO TELL US MORE IS

SUZANNA KACOAN, SHE IS THE

DIRECTOR OF THE NATIONAL

HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM IN

JERUSALEM.

SUZANNA, WE ALL HEARD ABOUT

THREATS TO WIPE ISRAEL OFF THE

MAP.

HOW WIDESPREAD IS THIS?

ONE THING WE NEED TO REALIZE

IS THAT ANTI-SEMITISM IS NOT

LIKE A CHAPTER THAT BEGAN AND

ENDED.

IT IS AN ONGOING THING.

SOMETHING THAT POLITICS BRING UP

IN DIFFERENT SOCIETIES AND

TIMES.

AT THIS MOMENT WHEN WE HEAR

THESE WARNINGS, WE CAN'T DENY

ANTI-SEMITISM IS WIDESPREAD.

IT EXISTS IN PLACES WHERE WE

MIGHT NOT THINK IT EXISTS.

THEREFORE WE ALL NEED TO BE

FIGHTING IT AT THIS TIME IN

HISTORY.

ANTI-SEMITISM IS A TERRIBLE

CHAPTER IN THE HISTORY OF THE

LAST 2,000 YEARS AND MORE LIKE

YOU ARE SAYING.

WHAT IS FUELLING THIS GROWTH AND

ANTI-SEMITIC ACTIVITY TODAY?

ONE THING ANTI-SEMITISM IS

LIKE A VIRUS THAT CHANGES ITS

FORM SO WE DON'T FIND A

VACCINATION THAT IS EFFECTIVE

AGAINST IT.

ALL THE DIFFERENT FORMS OF

ANTI-SEMITISM WHETHER THEY ARE

THREATENING THE SOCIAL

ANTI-SEMITISM OR RACIAL, THEY

HAVE SURVIVED UNTIL OUR DAY.

WHEN WE SPEAK ABOUT RISE OF

ANTI-SEMITISM, IT IS MORE THAT

IT MAY HAVE BEEN DORMANT.

IT HAS NEVER REALLY DISAPPEARED.

WHAT IS DRIVING IT TODAY, WE

WOULD HAVE TO LOOK AT THE WORLD

STAGE AND DIFFERENT NATIONS AND

TRY TO FIND THE MOTIVES.

I WOULD SAY THE MORE IMPORTANT,

MOST IMPORTANT THING FOR US IS

TO STAND UP AND FIGHT

ANTI-SEMITISM REGARDLESS OF WHAT

THE REASON BUT WE AS CHRISTIANS

HAVE TO STAND BY THE STATE OF

ISRAEL TODAY AND WITH THE JEWISH

COMMUNITIES LIVING IN OUR

COUNTRIES.

WHAT CAN CHRISTIANS DO

SPECIFICALLY TO HELP?

I THINK WE NEED TO BE

EDUCATED.

INVITE CHRISTIANS TO COME AND

STUDY WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES

OF ANTI-SEMITISM.

WE NEED TO FIGHT IT TOGETHER

WITH THE JEWISH COMMUNITIES AND

EDUCATE OURSELVES AND BE A VOICE

FOR THE JEWISH COMMUNITIES ON

THEIR BEHALF.

THE GREATEST THING CHRISTIANS

CAN DO IS STAND BY THE STATE OF

ISRAEL AND COME AND STUDY AND

UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPPENS WHEN

ANTI-SEMITISM IS ALLOWED TO

EXIST IN A SOCIETITY.

ALL RIGHT, SUZANNA, DIRECTOR

OF THE CHRISTIAN FRIENDS OF

YADVASHIM, THANK YOU FOR YOUR

TIME TODAY, WE APPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.

UP NEXT, HOW PICKING THE

RIGHT PAIR OF SHOES COULD HELP

YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR FEET.

MOST PEOPLE WILL WALK SOME

75,000 MILES BY THE TIME THEY

ARE 50.

THAT IS LIKE WALKING FIVE TIMES

AROUND THE EARTH.

ALL OF US NEED TO TAKE BETTER

CARE OF OUR FEET.

JENNIFER WISHON TELLS US IT

STARTS WITH WEARING COMFORTABLE

SHOES.

*

REPORTER: SHOES, GLORIOUS

SHOES, CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THE

PERFECT PAIR OF SHOES.

RIGHT COLOR AND STYLE CAN MAKE

YOU FEEL LIKE A STAR.

PUT ON THE WRONG PAIR AND SHEER

AGONY.

I KEEP EXTRA HEELS AT WORK.

REPORTER: AVERAGE AMERICAN

WOMAN OWNS 17 PAIRS AND WEARS

THREE ON A REGULAR BASIS.

AVERAGE MAN WEARS 17 PAIRS.

NOT EVERYONE CAN WALK INTO A

STORE AND WALK SHOES OFF THE

RACK.

COMFORTABLE, APPROPRIATE FOR

WORK AND SOME WHAT STYLISH, ALL

THREE.

REPORTER: SUCH WAS THE CASE

FOR SHOE DESIGNER ANYA LOU.

SHE HAD THE OPPOSITE PROBLEM

FINDING SHOES IN HER SIZE.

THREE AND A HALF.

FORMER DANCER STARTED HER

MULTIMILLION DOLLAR COMPANY.

MY SISTER SAID I NEED YOU TO

BUY ME A PAIR OF SHOES.

REPORTER: HER SISTER HAD A

PAIR OF SHOES AND COULD ONLY

WEAR THEM 15 MINUTES MAX.

SOME WOMEN CHOOSE FASHION OVER

SENSIBILITY AND END UP HERE.

I SAY PUT YOUR SANDAL WHEN

YOU ARE GETTING READY AND CHANGE

INTO YOUR SHOE BEFORE YOU WALK

IN.

REPORTER: MOST WILL WALK

75,000 MILES BEFORE THEY ARE 50

THAT IS LIKE WALKING AROUND THE

EARTH FIVE TIMES.

MOST COMMON PROBLEM, PAIN IN THE

HEEL, ARCH AND BALL OF THE FOOT.

TENDON ISSUES IN THE AND

BUNIONS, TOENAILS AND MAKE THEM

WORSE.

PUMP BUMP, IT RUBS ON THE

HEEL.

REPORTER: WHAT ABOUT THE

PAINFUL BUNIONS AND HAMMER TOES?

USUALLY HEREDITARY BUT -- WE

TEND TO DO THINGS WITH OUR FEET.

LOOK FOR A DRESS SHOE TWO

INCHES OR LESS.

CHOOSE COMFORT SUCH AS A

SNEAKER.

ORTHOTIC IN YOUR VIEW IS ALWAYS

AN OPTION.

REPORTER: NOTHING WORSE THAN

WALKING AROUND IN AN

UNCOMFORTABLE PAIR OF SHOES.

TRENDS ARE CHANGING.

IT IS GOOD NEWS.

IT IS NOT THE SITUATION WHERE

YOU MAKE A SHOE AND PUT

CUSHIONING.

YOU HAVE TO PAY MORE BUT

DEFINITELY VERY COSMETICALLY

APPEALING SHOES THAT PATIENTS

WOULD BE EMBARRASSED TO WALK

AROUND IN THAT STILL GIVES GOOD

SUPPORT.

REPORTER: WHICH BRINGS US

BACK TO ANYA LOU.

THOUGHT OF WEARING ORTHOPEDIC

SHOES COULD BE DEVASTATING.

HER GOAL TO CREATE A STYLE SHE

CALLS CATOURE COMFORT.

IF WE CAN SEND MEN WALKING ON

THE MOON, HOW CAN WE NOT HAVE A

COLLECTION OF SHOES FOR WOMEN

THAT WE CAN LOOK CHIC?

REPORTER: LOU WANTS TO

EMPOWER WOMEN.

THAT IS SOMETHING RETAILERS WANT

TO PASS ON TO THEIR CUSTOMERS.

WOMEN LOOK FAR MORE BEAUTIFUL

WHEN THEY WALK COMFORTABLE.

REPORTER: PEOPLE ARE TAKING

NOTE.

I AM TRYING TO BE STYLISH.

COMFORT IS MY PRIORITY.

IF YOU EVER NEED A PICK ME

UP, ALWAYS REMEMBER --

REPORTER: IF YOU WANT TO

FORGET ALL OF LIFE'S TROUBLES

WEAR TIGHT SHOES.

KEEP YOUR FEET COMFORTABLE AND

HEALTHY.

REPORTER: JENNIFER WISHON,

A BROKE SINGLE MOTHER FROM

FLORIDA FELT SHE HAD NO CHOICE

AS SHE WAS LEAVING FOR A CART

FULL OF GROCERY, OFFICER VICKY

THOMAS ARRIVED ON THE SCENE.

I MADE THE DECISION TO BUY

GROCERIES.

ARRESTING HER WASN'T GOING TO

SOLVE THE PROBLEM.

TO SEE THE BAGS IT WAS LIKE

CHRISTMAS.

THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF

MY HEART.

WOW.

JESSICA IS GOING TO A LOCAL

FOOD BANK.

WHEN SHE GETS BACK ON HER FEET

SHE WILL BLESS OTHERS THE WAY
