The online clearing house for the Obamacare exchanges went live on Tuesday, October 1st, 2013 ( launched more than seven weeks ago and its diagnosis isn't looking good so far. 

The program's problems keep piling up as hundreds of thousands of people receive notifications that their current coverage is being cancelled. There are also concerns over the website's security. Last week President Obama tried to calm the situation by announcing that people can keep the plans they were told they were dropped from. This week on Money Talking, regular contributors Joe Nocera of The New York Times and Rana Foroohar of Time magazine consider if these changes put the entire law at risk and what the uncertainty means for consumers and businesses. Plus, a look at the recent JPMorgan settlement, which forced the bank to shell out a record $13 billion.
