Wochit 0:49 mins

The White House shot back at critics who claim Obamacare is leading to higher healthcare costs, slower job growth and rising numbers of part-time workers, saying the latest economic statistics show none of those effects. The White House condemned violence in Egypt that led to the killing of scores of demonstrators at the weekend but said it had taken no steps to suspend U.S. military assistance to the Arab world's most populous nation. President Barack Obama welcomed Israeli-Palestinian talks starting in Washington, but cautioned that a tough path lies ahead.
