Ginny Goldman is the executive director of Texas Organizing Project. Her group is helping recruit the uninsured for Affordable Care Act insurance, but the numbers are drastically low. Is it far fewer than what they expected?

This week, Dallas marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. JFK is also remembered for his ability to inspire the youth of America. On My Voice, My Opinion, Dallas Morning News columnist Mercedes Olivera questions whether any state leader today shares that important trait.

President Obama promises that the HealthCare.gov website will finally be fixed by the end of the month. From the right, radio talk show host Mark Davis of 660 AM The Answer welcomes the news, saying a repaired site will show that the Affordable Care Act is still a disaster. But on the left, author and producer Katie Sherrod says the opposite will be the case as millions more Americans will have affordable health care. That's the debate on this week's Flashpoint.

Plus, we'll put the headlines into perspective on Reporters Roundtable with Fort Worth Star Telegram columnist Bud Kennedy and Dallas Morning News Austin bureau chief Christy Hoppe.

WFAA political reporter Jason Whitely is the host of Inside Texas Politics.
