HEALTHCARE PROBLEMS
    IN NATIONAL NEWS...PRESIDENT OBAMA PROPOSED A FIX FOR PEOPLE WHOSE INSURANCE PLANS WERE DROPPED BECAUSE THEY DIDNT MEET THE NEW STANDARDS UNDER THE HEALTHCARE PLAN.

    BUT IT ISNT AN EASY FIX - AND IT MAY END UP LEAVING SOME EVEN MORE FRUSTRATED.

    CAN PRESIDENT OBAMA'S SO-CALLED FIX ACTUALLY WORK? YESTERDAY THE PRESIDENT VOWED TO CHANGE THE RULES...SO THE MILLIONS OF AMERICANS WHO HAD THEIR HEALTH INSURANCE PLANS CANCELLED...CAN BE OFFERED THEIR OLD PLANS FOR ONE MORE YEAR. SOT Obama: "This fix won't solve every problem for every person, but it's going to help a lot of people." BUT EVEN THAT MAY BE WISHFUL THINKING. CANCELLED PLANS NOW HAVE TO BE RE-PRICEDAND FILED WITH STATE REGULATORS FOR APPROVAL. THEN IT'S UP TO STATE INSURANCE COMMISSIONERS TO IMPLEMENT THE CHANGE. THE WHOLE PROCESS USUALLY TAKES MONTHS. ALREADY ONE STATE - WASHINGTON - HAS SAID IT'S NOT A VIABLE FIX. TODAY AT THE WHITE HOUSE PRESIDENT OBAMA MEETS WITH INSURANCE COMPANY CEOS. THE INDUSTRY'S TOP LOBBYIST WARNED YESTERDAY THAT "CHANGING THE RULES AFTER HEALTH PLANS HAVE ALREADY MET THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE LAW COULD DESTABILIZE THE MARKET AND RESULT IN HIGHER PREMIUMS FOR CONSUMERS." THE HOUSE WILL VOTE TODAY ON A BILL THAT WOULD ALLOW AMERICANS TO KEEP AND EVEN CONTINUE TO BUY HEALTH CARE PLANS THAT WERE SCRAPPED UNDER OBAMACARE. SOT Rep. Michael Burgess, (R) Texas "HR350 offers a legislative solution to help Americans get a lifeboat, a liferaft out from under the crushing weight of this law." SOME DEMOCRATS - UNDER PRESSURE FROM FRUSTRATED CONSTITUENTS - HAD BEEN THREATENING TO REVOLT. YESTERDAY'S ANNOUNCEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT GAVE THEM COVER BUT IT MAY NOT BE ENOUGH. SOT Dowd "I think he's provided an opportunity and a window to give his opponents much more room to maneuver in this. And it gives his people that support him, difficulty defending him."

SMART HOLIDAY SHOPPING
    THE HOLIDAY SHOPPING SEASON BEGINS IN TWO WEEKS.

    AND FOR SOME, THE SPIRIT OF THE SEASON MAY LEAD TO OVERSPENDING AND ADD UP TO A LESS-THAN-HAPPY NEW YEAR.

    HERE ARE SOME TIPS FOR SMARTER HOLIDAY SPENDING.

    MANY AMERICANS WON'T START THE HOLIDAY SEASON WITH A CLEAN FINANCIAL SLATE. IF CREDIT CARD DEBT IS ALREADY MOUNTING, LEAVE THE PLASTIC ALONE.

    "Maybe you can't do what you really want to do during the holidays in terms of everything you want to give your kids or your friends, but if you stick with cash your situation at least won't get any worse."

    STICKING TO CASH ON HAND REQUIRES A MORE DISCIPLINED APPROACH - AND A BUDGET. IN ADDITION TO GIFTING FAMILY AND FRIENDS, FACTOR IN OTHERS THAT ARE OFTEN OVERLOOKED, LIKE TIPS FOR BABYSITTERS AND HAIRDRESSERS.

    CREDIT CARD EXPERT BEVERLY HARZOG URGES SHOPPERS TO BE HONEST ABOUT THAT BUDGET -- AND DON'T RELY ON POTENTIAL MONEY LIKE A HOLIDAY BONUS THAT MAY NOT MATERIALIZE.

    "Stick with what you know you have in your accounts at the moment, your current cash flow, and plan your budget around that. That way you won't have any unpleasant surprises. The last thing you want is to be in the debt when 2014 rolls around."

    IF A LARGE PURCHASE IS GOING ON A CREDIT CARD, MAKE A SMART CHOICE. USE A REWARDS CARD THAT WILL EARN POINTS, MILES OR CASH BACK.

    AND RESIST BEING TEMPTED BY THOSE DEALS THAT PROMISE INSTANT SAVINGS BY OPENING A STORE CREDIT CARD. THEY TEND TO HAVE HIGHER INTEREST RATES, MEANING YOU MAY STILL BE PAYING FOR THIS YEAR'S GIFTS, NEXT YEAR.

    FOR CONSUMER WATCH, I'M KARIN CAIFA.

    AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE... WE HAVE SOME KEY DATES THAT WILL HELP YOU AVOID THE BIG CROWDS.

    SHOPPER TRACK FOUND THAT SHOPPING EARLY AND MOSTLY MID WEEK ARE THE BEST TIMES TO SHOP.. AND THE LEAST BUSIEST DAYS .. DECEMBER 2nd THROUGH THE 4th.. ALONG WITH THE 9th AND 11th.

    NOW IF YOU HIT UP THE STORES ON THOSE DAYS.. JUST REMEMBER.. THERE MAY NOT BE DOORBUSTER DEALS LIKE ON BLACK FRIDAY, BUT THERE SHOULD STILL BE SALES.
