Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Monday, February 17, 2014

It’s the fifth anniversary of President Obama’s signing of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The stimulus was supposed to create 3.5 million new jobs. Five years on, we run the numbers on how successful the program was at reaching that goal. Also, the Affordable Care Act continues to encounter traction issues. One big problem: the administration’s apparent failure to connect meaningfully with minorities. Later: Snow's the word in much of the country. But so's the word drought. In Texas and the far west the rain has been sparse for almost two years. Marketplace's Adriene Hill looks at how we value the water we have.
