    Washington Week [#5716H] A bipartisan proposal drafted by Sens. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Patty Murray, D-Wash., would restore health insurance subsidies and provide short-term fixes to the insurance marketplaces. The approximately $9 billion per year would help pay the out-of-pocket costs for millions of low-income Americans covered by the Affordable Care Act exchanges. President Trump's support for the bill has wavered throughout the week as the White House and many Republicans in Congress remain committed to repealing and replacing Obamacare.
    *Jeff Zeleny of CNN, Yamiche Alcindor of The New York Times and Molly Ball of The Atlantic will discuss the ongoing efforts to stabilize health care exchanges and the impact on budget and tax negotiations.
    *Two weeks after an ISIS ambush in Niger killed four U.S. soldiers, the details remain murky about what caused the deadliest combat mission of Trump's presidency. The conflicting accounts of President Trump's condolence call with the widow of one of the soldiers has erupted into a war of words between the White House and a Democratic congresswoman. Many politicians and military officials are worried about the politicization of the deaths of U.S. service members and the grief of Gold Star families in the wake of the controversy.
    *Nancy Youssef of The Wall Street Journal will report on the deadly attack in West Africa and wider concerns about how families of fallen soldiers are comforted.

    Suze Orman's Financial Solutions for You We all have financial issues and problems. Suze Orman's latest special sharply focuses on her helping individual viewers "find financial solutions for you." As always, Suze's advice is based not just on numbers, but on a critical understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs. The special's central theme is that our financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of "the goal of money." As Suze perceptively defines it: "The goal of money is to make you feel secure." Our financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal. In addition, Suze stresses the importance of making financial decisions that you feel comfortable with. Financial problems are caused when you do things with money that do not seem "right" to you, despite pressures and advice from others. duration 1:57:06   STEREO TVG

Audiences adored his larger than life personality, childlike charm, generous figure, and happy go lucky style. This program celebrates the 50th anniversary since his career debut in Amsterdam, Vienna, Zurich and finally London where he substituted for the ailing Giuseppe di Stefano as Rodolfo in La Boheme.

It is Pavarotti who brought opera to the masses and made football fans worldwide fall in love with "Nessun dorma." This program includes that hit and other beloved arias from La Boheme, Rigoletto and Aida; Neapolitan songs in arrangements by Henry Mancini including "Mamma" and "O Sole Mio"; favorite sacred songs like "Ave Maria" and "O Holy Night"; as well as popular duets with Bono, Sting and Eric Clapton.
