2:00 amWashington Week [#5202H] Taxes, jobs and health care were the main themes for both President Obama and Mitt Romney this week as both men targeted the middle class during campaign stops in the battleground states of Iowa, Colorado and Virginia.
* President Obama re-ignited the tax policy debate when he revived calls for lawmakers to extend Bush-era tax cuts only to families making less than $250,000 a year. Republicans want all tax cuts to be extended and say the president's efforts to portray himself as the champion of the middle class is nothing more than "class warfare." The Obama campaign pushed back with a new ad campaign accusing Republican challenger Mitt Romney of being out of touch with the middle class and claiming his tax proposals would overwhelmingly benefit the wealthy.
* During campaign stops in Colorado, Mitt Romney told voters that the president's plan to extend tax cuts for all but the rich would harm job creators and said the president was the "outsourcer in chief" Later in the week, the former Massachusetts governor addressed the NAACP convention. But the predominantly Democratic-leaning crowd booed the GOP contender when he declared that he would repeal "Obamacare" if elected.
* As both candidates tried to rally support and distinguish themselves from their contender, House Republicans voted to repeal President Barack Obama's signature health care reform law despite the fact that the measure will almost certainly die in the Democrat-controlled Senate. And the Obama campaign once again raised questions about Romney's tenure at Bain Capital where he spent the majority of his career and made his fortune.

3:00 amNature [#2306H] Life In Death Valley It is a visual wonderland, where imposing mountains rise almost two vertical miles above sprawling salt flats, and canyons are painted in strokes of blue, pink, violet and green from sunrise to sunset. This is Death Valley - one of the most inhospitable places on the planet. Nowhere else is a landscape so exquisite yet brutal, stunning yet harsh. Here, temperatures spike into the 130s, the earth cracks like broken clay and when the hot wind blows, all anyone can taste is dust and salt. Ironically, it is water that has shaped this super-arid home of true survivors. duration 55:41 SRND51 TVG
