TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" COUNT

DOWN TO THE MIDTERMS, HOW THE

PRESIDENT'S HEALTH CARE PLAN IS

GIVING A BIG BOOST TO

REPUBLICANS IN THIS YEAR'S

ELECTIONS.

PLUS THE POSSIBLE LEAD IN THE

FLIGHT 370.

IMAGES HAVE SOME WONDERING IF

THE PLANE HAS BEEN FOUND.

AND MEET A GROUP FROM CHICAGO

TRYING TO SNUFF OUT SEX

TRAFFICKING.

GOOD EVENING I AM MARK MARTIN.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

POLLS SHOW THE GROWING UP

POPULARITY OF THE PRESIDENT'S

HEALTH CARE PLAN COULD HAVE

MAJOR IMPLICATIONS.

FOR DEMOCRATS SEEKING -- SUNK

BY REPUBLICAN CHALLENGER DURING

A SPECIAL ELECTION.

JOLLY CAMPAIGNED ON REPEALING

'OBAMACARE' AND WON.

SINK EMBRACED 'OBAMACARE' AND

LOST.

THAT IS THE BIG CHALLENGE FOR

DEMOCRATS.

THEY ALL VOTED FOR 'OBAMACARE.'

IF THEY DON'T DISTANCE

THEMSELVES THEY MAY NOT BE UP

HERE NEXT YEAR.

DEMOCRATS CONTROL THE SENATE BUT

REPUBLICAN COULD TAKE OVER BY

TAKING SIX SEATS.

FOCUS ON DEMOCRATS WHO VOTED ON

'OBAMACARE,' KAY HAGEN IN NORTH

CAROLINA, MARY LANDRY AND MARK

PRIOR IN ARKANSAS.

I KNOW WE HAVE A TON OF

MONEY.

THEY ARE GOING TO CONVINCE

PEOPLE -- THE TRUTH IS I HAVE A

GREAT RELATIONSHIP WITH THE

STATE.

REPORTER: CONSERVATIVE GROUPS

QUESTIONING THE TRUST WITH ADS

REMINDING VOTERS PRYOR BACKED

'OBAMACARE

'OBAMACARE.' WE RECEIVED A

LETTER IN 2014 WE WOULD NO

LONGER BE COVERED.

REPORTER: PRYOR IS

FRUSTRATED.

I KNOW PEOPLE ARE FRUSTRATED,

THAT WAS A HARD, HARD PIECE OF

LEGISLATION.

PRIOR AGREES HE IS STICKING

BY THE CONTROVERSIAL LAW.

IF YOU GET 80% RIGHT, YOU ARE

DOING SOMETHING RIGHT.

I DON'T KNOW.

IT IS FAR FROM PERFECT.

REPORTER: FROM THE BEGINNING,

'OBAMACARE' UNDER A DARK CLOUD,

THE WEBSITE AND THE CANCELLATION

POLICIES.

AND THE LIST GOES ON.

ONE TOP HOUSE DEMOCRAT DOESN'T

BELIEVE IT.

HOW DO DEMOCRATS TAKE BACK TO

HOUSE?

WELL, I DO THINK THE

DEMOCRATS WILL PICK UP ADDITION

ADDITIONAL SEATS IN THE HOUSE.

QUESTION OF COURSE IS WHETHER

YOU CAN GET TO THE MAGIC NUMBER

17 WHICH IS WHAT THE DEMOCRATS

NEED IN THE HOUSE.

THERE IS A LOT OF TIME BETWEEN

NOW AND NOVEMBER.

REPORTER: WILL THESE

DEMOCRATS TURN TO THE PRESIDENT

FOR HELP?

HIS POPULARITY IS SINKING FAST.

IT IS SOMETHING THE PRESIDENT

WILL DECIDE WHETHER HE HAS TIME

AND WHETHER OR NOT MEMBERS MAKE

THE REQUEST.

REPORTER: RIGHT NOW THE

REQUEST FROM VULNERABLE

DEMOCRATS HOW NOT TO GET SUNK BY

'OBAMACARE,' DAVID BRODY, CBN

NEWS, WASHINGTON.

PHIL CUR PIN JOINS US NOW.

DO YOU EXPECT TO SEE MORE

DEMOCRATS RUNNING AWAY FROM

'OBAMACARE?' IT CAN BE

DIFFICULT BECAUSE THEY ALL

VOTED, ALL THE ECHOED HIS FAMOUS

BROKEN PROMISE.

AS MUCH AS THEY WANT TO FIX IT,

AMERICAN PEOPLE KNOW THEY WERE

THE ONES THAT BROKE IT.

REPORTER: DO YOU THINK

REPUBLICANS ARE DOING ENOUGH TO

CAPITALIZE ON THE FAILURE OF

'OBAMACARE?' THERE ARE VERY

POSITIVE SIGNS.

THE HOUSE HAS VOTED MANY TIMES,

NOT JUST TO REPEAL THE LAW, BUT

TO FIX THE WORST AND MOST

EGREGIOUS ASPECTS.

SO FAR THE SENATE DEMOCRATS HAVE

BEEN UNWILLING TO DEBATE THEM,

TO SHOW THEY MEAN IT WHEN THEY

WANT TO FIX THE LAW.

REPUBLICANS HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB

IN SPOTLIGHTING THAT.

QUESTION IS WHETHER THEY CAN

CONTINUE TO KEEP THE PRESSURE

UP.

DEMOCRATS LIKE TO BLAME THE

INSURANCE COMPANIES INSTEAD OF

THE AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE ACT

ITSELF, IS THAT WORKING FOR

THEM?

I DON'T THINK IT IS.

MOST PEOPLE SEE THE LAW FOR WHAT

IT IS, COLLUSION BETWEEN BIG

GOVERNMENT AND BIG BUSINESS.

ALL OF THEM SPENT MILLIONS ON

LOBBYIST AND GETTING A VARIETY

OF PAYMENTS.

IDEA THEY ARE ON OPPOSITE SIDES

IT IS NOT CREDIBLE.

PEOPLE SEE THIS WHAT IT IS.

HOW DO YOU THINK THE MID-TERM

ELECTIONS ARE GOING TO PLAY OUT?

DO YOU THINK REPUBLICAN WILL

GAIN CONTROL OF THE SENATE,

PHIL?

I THINK SO.

I THINK WE'LL SEE THE SENATE

SWITCH.

I THINK EVEN SOME OF THE PURPLE

STATES, DEMOCRATS OR BLUE STATES

LIKE MICHIGAN, DEMOCRATS MAY

HAVE TROUBLE SPECIFICALLY THE

'OBAMACARE' ISSUE.

WE WILL SEE REPUBLICAN PICK UPS.

OKAY.

PHIL CUR PIN, PRESIDENT OF

AMERICAN COMMITMENT.

A SIGHTING OF DEBRIS COULD BE

A BIG LEAD FOR THE MALAYSIAN

FLIGHTS 370.

JOHN WAAGE HAS DETAILS.

REPORTER: IT IS NOT CONFIRMED

THE OBJECTS SPOTTED IN THE OCEAN

ARE FROM FLIGHT 370.

IT IS SOMETHING NEW.

THIS IS A LEAD.

IT IS PROBABLY THE BEST LEAD WE

HAVE RIGHT NOW.

WE NEED TO GET THERE, FIND THEM,

SEE THEM, ASSESS THEM TO KNOW

WHETHER IT IS MEANINGFUL OR NOT.

REPORTER: MILITARY SEARCH

PLANES FROM AUSTRALIA, U.S. AND

NEW SOOELAND HAVE ALL HEADED TO

THE AREA.

WE WANT TO GIVE CONCLUSIONS

FOR THE FAMILIES.

REPORTER: AUTHORITIES CAUTION

VISIBILITY IS POOR.

ONE OF THE FLOATING OBJECTS IS

90 FEET LONG, THE OTHER 15 FEET.

WE HAVE DONE THIS USING

SATELLITE IMAGES BEFORE.

THEY DON'T ALWAYS TURN OUT.

EXPERTS SAY THE SIZE HAS THEM

QUESTIONING WHETHER IT IS FROM

THE FLIGHT.

NORMALLY SOMETHING SO LARGE

WOULDN'T SURVIVE A CRASH.

FLIGHT 370 VANISHED MARCH 7TH.

UNDER FIRE FROM AROUND THE

WORLD, A HINT OF AN ANSWER IS

WELCOMED.

IF WE CONSIDER CONFIRM THE

DEBRIS IDENTIFIED IS THE PLANE,

EFFORTS ARE BEING MADE TO GO TO

THE LOCATION.

NEXT STEP IS TO FIND THE BLACK

BOX.

THE WAIT IS PAINFUL.

THIS FATHER OF ONE PASSENGER

SAYS WE ARE WAITING IF R THE

RESULTS OF FORENSIC EXAMINATION,

IF IT IS MALAYSIAN AIR FLIGHT

370, WE WILL ACCEPT THAT.

THE FBI IS HELPING TO ANALYZE

DELETED DATA FROM A SIMULATOR.

REPORTER: MARCH 16, PEOPLE

IT WAS REAL AGGRESSIVE VERY

CRAZY PEOPLE.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS.

A CHRISTIAN ORPHAN MINISTRY.

DEMONSTRATORS CHANTING RUSSIA,

RUSSIA TRIED TO PULL HIS TEAM

OFF THE BUS.

FORTUNATELY, THEY MANAGED TO GET

AWAY UNHURT NOT BEFORE SMASHED

RUSSIA IS SENDING MEN ACROSS THE

BORDER TO INSTIGATE CHAOS AND A

BROADER RUSSIAN INVASION OF

UKRAINE.

I HAVE TWO ADOPTED CHILDREN.

I AM AFRAID.

WE HAVE A REAL CHANCE FOR WAR.

UKRAINE'S PRIME MINISTER SAYS

WITH.

LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES HAVE

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

THANKS, GEORGE, COMING UP,

WHY SOME SUFFERING FROM CANCER

AREN'T ABLE TO GO TO THE DOCTORS

WHO FOCUS ON THIS DISEASE.

CANCER PATIENTS RELIEVED TO

GET INSURANCE COVERAGE FROM THE

PRESIDENT'S HEALTH CARE PLAN

MAYBE IN STORE FOR A BIG

DISAPPOINTMENT.

SOME CANCER CENTERS ARE NOW

OFF LIMITS.

LORIE JOHNSON HAS THAT STORY.

REPORTER: JUST FOUR OF THE

TOP CANCER HOSPITALS --

ASSOCIATED PRESS MADE THE

DISCOVERY IN A NATIONWIDE SURVEY

OF COMPREHENSIVE CANCER CENTERS

WITH HIGHER SURVIVAL RATES.

WELL KNOWN INSURANCE COMPANYS

ARE SCALING BACK CANCER

COVERAGE.

PATIENTS MAY NOT BE ABLE TO GET

THE MOST ADVANCED TREATMENT

INCLUDING CLINICAL TRIALS OF NEW

MEDICATIONS.

THERE ARE 100,000 PEOPLE IN

THE WASHINGTON EXCHANGES.

MAJORITY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO

RECEIVE THEIR CARE HERE.

U

REPORTER: LESS CHOICE MEANS

LOWER COST.

THESE EXCHANGE NETWORKS ARE

NARROW TO KEEP THE COST LOW TO

CONSUMERS.

REPORTER: SOME INSURERS SAY

CUSTOMERS ARE WILLING TO MAKE

TRADE OFFS FOR AFFORDABLE

COVERAGE.

ANALYST NOTE MANY WERE

UNINSURABLE BEFORE THE HEALTH

CARE LAW.

THE ISSUE IS LIMITED TO THE NEW

INSURANCE EXCHANGES AND COULD

BECOME A CONCERN FOR JOB BASED

COVERAGE IF EMPLOYERS TURN TO

MORE NARROW NETWORKS.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SAYS THEY

WILL GET MORE ADDING CANCER CARE

WILL BE A PRIORITY.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

IN OTHER HEALTH NEWS, NOT

GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP MIGHT

LITERALLY KILL YOUR BRAIN CELLS.

LACK OF SLEEP DID DAMAGE TO THE

UP FOR IT.

LEAD TO IRREVERSIBLE INJURY IN

KEY PARTS OF THE BRAIN.

WAVE TAKES MORE THAN A GUN AND

UNIFORMED.

YOU NEED STREET PERSPECTIVE.

THAT IS WHERE THESE PEOPLE COME

IN.

WE ARE ON THE STREET WORKING

SIDE BY SIDE WITH THE CHICAGO

POLICE DEPARTMENT.

THEY KNOW THERE ARE CHILDREN

INVOLVED.

A POLICE OFFICER WILL TAKE A LOT

OF CALLS.

WHEN IT IS A CHILD, THAT IS A

SORE SPOT FOR ANY POLICE

EPHRAIM: THEY FOLLOW A LEAD

TO A NEARBY HOTEL.

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS GENTLEMAN

COMING IN LATE AT NIGHT?

WHEN SOMEONE SAYS MY CHILD IS

MISSING.

WE HAVE TO DROP WHATEVER WE ARE

INVOLVED IN.

EPHRAIM: ONE DAY AFTER

RECEIVING THAT CALL, CARLOS AND

ANDREW TRACK DOWN THE MISSING

GIRL.

AT AN ABANDONED HOUSE ON THE

CITY'S SOUTH SIDE.

YOU HAVE BEEN STAYING HERE A

WHILE, ISN'T YOU.

EPHRAIM: THIS IS WHAT IT

HAPPENING.

EPHRAIM: CHURCH'S PASTOR

ADULTS AND CHILDREN.

HE TURNED A WEDNESDAY NIGHT

BIBLE STUDY INTO SEX

TRAFFICKING.

WE MUST BE ACTIVE AND

PROACTIVE.

EPHRAIM: THE PASTOR SAYS HIS

EYES ARE WATCHFUL.

LOOK AT A GIRL WALKING ALONE

WITH HER HEAD DOWN.

I WONDER IS SHE ONE, WHERE IS

HER HOME?

IS SHE OUT HERE WONDERING OR

WHERE IS SHE?

IS SHE UNDER SOMEONE ELSE'S

CONTROL OR HEADED THAT WAY

WITHOUT INTERVENTION?

WHEN I SEE THEM ON THEIR CELL

PHONES, WHO ARE THEY

COMMUNICATING WITH.

THEY ARE VICTIMS AND

VICTIMIZERS.

COMMUNITY AND OR IN THE CHURCH.

EPHRAIM: MORRISON SECURITY

RESCUED SEVERAL VICTIMS, MANY

TARGETS REMAIN ACROSS THE CITY.

THEY COVERED WHOLE SPECTRUM

A-Z EDUCATED, SOME ARE NOT

EDUCATED, MIDDLE CLASS FAMILIES,

WE HAVE LAW ENFORCEMENT

PERSONNEL.

EPHRAIM: HUMAN TRAFFICKING IS

A SPEEDING TRAIN MOVING FASTER

THAN POLICE CAN TRAP.

OVERTAKE THE DRUG TRADE.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CHICAGO.

FAME WOULD BE MY FAINTING GOATS.

I AM CALLED THE CRAZY FAINTING

THAT IS GOOD IT IS NOT

HURTING THEM.

FAINTING HAPPENS BECAUSE OF A

GENETIC DISORDER.

CURRENTLY 83 ANIMALS AT THE

PENNSYLVANIA FARM, 44 BABIES.

THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN TO ALL

GOATS.

NO.
