Washington (CNN) – Continuing his push to use executive powers as a way of advancing his agenda, President Barack Obama will announce Thursday a new effort to help improve the lives of young African-American males.
A White House official said the “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative would partner government with businesses to “make sure that every young man of color who is willing to work hard and lift himself up has an opportunity to get ahead and reach his full potential.”

(CNN) - With a little more than two weeks to go before the Obama administration’s deadline for repairing the problem-plagued HealthCare.gov, a close parsing of White House officials’ words shows a completely functioning website isn’t likely to materialize.
Instead, the White House and other agencies are predicting the website will work for a “vast majority” of Americans - while admitting the repair job is uncovering even more problems with the failed digital property than were previously known.
