Obamacare bombshell dropped

Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron at my desk in the WBTV Newsroom.

In just a few minutes from now, a bombshell dropped tonight in the Obamacare controversy.

For days, administration officials have refused to say how many people have signed up on the health care exchange. Tonight we may know why. It's small enough to count on one hand.

According to CBS News, only 6 people signed up on day one. A day later, the number was up to 248 people-- far, far less than the hundreds of thousands some had predicted.

The White House isn't commenting and actual numbers aren't set for release until mid-November.

A judge blocked release of dashcam video from the night a CMPD officer shot and killed an unarmed man. Judge Richard Boner says he wants the officer tried in court and not by the media.

North Carolina Congressman Mel Watt's political future is on hold tonight. Republicans in the Senate blocked Watt's nomination to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency with some saying he's too political to confirm the President's nomination.

On my weekly Crime Stoppers report, I've got exclusive video of a frightening robbery at a local convenience store. A man covered from head to toe, carrying a large black handgun, bolts in at 6:00AM, terrifying the two clerks on duty. He demands money from very specific locations, which is why police believe he may be an ex-employee.

We escaped Halloween without storms raining on the kids, but Eric Thomas says there will be action later tonight. He'll have the First Alert Forecast looking ahead to the weekend.

Please join Eric, Molly Grantham, Delano Little and me for WBTV News at 11:00 tonight!
