    Washington Week [#5652] After weeks of behind-the-scenes discussions, Senate Republicans unveiled their plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. The Better Care Reconciliation Act authored largely by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell rolls back many requirements included under President Obama's signature healthcare plan
    The Senate plan would:
    - Phase out the Medicaid expansion to low-income Americans
    - Provide smaller subsidies for insurance plans that offer less coverage
    - Repeal the individual mandate requiring Americans to buy insurance
    - Allow states to opt out of requiring certain essential health benefits like maternity care and mental health treatment
    In addition to Democrats, who are in lock-step opposition to the GOP Senate health care bill, four conservative Republican senators have rejected the plan calling it "Obamacare light." Sens. Rand Paul (KY), Ron Johnson (WI), Ted Cruz (TX) and Mike Lee (UT) released a joint statement saying they're "not ready to vote for this bill."
    The Senate plan is similar to the American Health Care Act passed by the House last month. President Trump touted its passage in a Rose Garden ceremony but recently has called it "mean" and "cold-hearted." He has not yet indicated his opinion of the Senate plan.
    All of the debate is racing towards a vote next week before the July 4th Congressional recess. McConnell's schedule leaves little time for public debate or amendments. The Congressional Budget Office will release its score of the bill next week.
    Robert Costa will explore the details of the Republican prescription for health care and the real-world impact with:
    Sarah Kliff of Vox, Susan Davis of NPR, Philip Rucker of The Washington Post, and Kelly O'Donnell of NBC News.

    Truly CA: Our State, Our Stories [#103] Screaming Queens: The Riot at Compton's Cafeteria It's a hot August night in San Francisco in 1966. Compton's Cafeteria, in the seedy Tenderloin district, is hopping with its usual assortment of transgender people, young street hustlers, and down-and-out regulars. The management, annoyed by the noisy crowd at one table, calls the police. When a surly cop, accustomed to manhandling Compton's clientele, attempts to arrest one of the queens, she throws her coffee in his face. Mayhem erupts -- windows break, furniture flies through the air. Police reinforcements arrive, and the fighting spills into the street. For the first time, the drag queens band together to fight back, getting the better of the cops, whom they kick and stomp with their high-heeled shoes and beat with their heavy purses. For everyone at Compton's that night, one thing was certain -- things would never be the same again.

    This documentary introduces viewers to a diverse cast of former prostitutes, drag entertainers, police officers, ministers and neighborhood activists, all of whom played a part in the events leading up to the Compton's Cafeteria riot. With extraordinary candor and from differing points of view, the subjects recount the difficulties they encountered in the Tenderloin, as well as the sense of community they created there in the mid-1960s. The doc also goes on to show the connection between transgender activism and the larger social upheavals affecting the United States in the 1960s: the civil rights and sexual liberation movements, the youth counterculture, urban renewal, and Great Society antipoverty programs. It sets out to foster a better understanding of the experiences of transgender people and to inform a broad audience of their often-difficult lives and unheralded accomplishments. Along the way, the program also illuminates the interplay of urban politics, community mobilization and social services in creating the modern inner city. By Victor Silverman and Susan Stryker.

Filmed in just five days with an intimate cast and crew of queer women of color, Suicide Kale is a tale of two couples, one brunch, and a mysterious suicide note. Jordan and Billie are the perfect established lesbian couple ... or so it seems. Jasmine and Penny, meanwhile have been together for a month and are still getting to know each other. They're also finding time to sneak away to their friends' bedroom to "get to know each other." But in the midst of a discreet quickie, Jasmine and Penny stumble upon an anonymous suicide note and proceed to devise a strategy to uncover the identity of the author. When nothing goes according to plan, Jasmine and Penny depend on their oft-misguided intuition to get to the root of this crisis, leading up to the films unexpected conclusion. Mostly improvised, Suicide Kale's small cast entertains throughout with diatribes on masturbation and whether or not it's a good idea to decorate your home with items that once belonged to a neighbor who died in a hot tub. duration 1:18:05

    Age Fix with Anthony Youn, MD Everyone ages whether they like it or not. But it doesn't mean that some signs of aging can't be fixed. Have you ever thought that it would be great to have friend, who just happened to be a plastic surgeon, and you could ask anything and get a straight answer? Someone who won't judge you about your insecurities but would open up a world of insider tips, tricks, and secrets from the fields of beauty, dermatology, and plastic surgery?
    Well, now you do - because that's Dr. Tony Youn. Yes, plastic surgery trims waistlines and reduces wrinkles, but in The Age Fix, Dr. Youn gives easy home remedies to save you thousands of dollars and achieve the same results without surgery.
    Dr. Youn's goal is to offer you a way to fix your age-related skin concerns, without having in-office treatments, painful surgery, or spending a lot of money. While he acknowledges there are some instances where the only real good option is actual surgery, in most cases he offers ways to turn back the clock in a significant way without even seeing a doctor, much less a plastic surgeon. Throughout the program Dr. Youn reveals tips, tricks, and secrets - natural anti-aging tips plastic surgeons don't want you to know.
    With the simple changes he discusses, you'll look younger on the outside and be younger on the inside. He'll share with the single best cream to put on your skin to prevent aging, and the best cream to reverse aging, and even prevent future skin cancers. And he gives simple and easy treatments to improve most aging concerns, like age spots, wrinkles, and under eye puffiness. He demonstrates do-it-yourself anti-aging treatments, reveals the best products to tighten your skin, and simple dietary changes that can make you look and feel years younger. Your skin will glow, and you'll probably notice a few pounds fall off in the bargain.
