    Nightly Business Report [#32248] Tonight on Nightly Business Report, the S&P posts its longest win streak in nine months.

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5320H] * Thursday, President Obama unveiled a plan to fix a provision of the Affordable Care Act that will allow policy holders whose current insurance plans were canceled to get 1-year extensions even if they don't conform to all the new health care laws. He also admitted that the administration "fumbled" last month's roll-out of the healthcare exchange program. On Wednesday the administration announced that only 106,000 people enrolled on the state and federal insurance exchanges since they opened on October 1.
    Republicans remain skeptical that the Affordable Care Act can be "fixed." The House will vote on Friday on a Republican bill to permanently change the health care law to allow insurance companies to continue selling existing policies that do not comply with the law's new standards. Meanwhile the president admitted that troubles in implementing the ACA have "put a burden on Democrats" whose constituents are unhappy that they might lose their current health insurance plans despite the president's assurances that if they liked their existing plans, they could keep them.
    Joining Gwen Ifill to explore the proposed solution to fix Obamacare and whether the ongoing political battle over the president's signature legislative achievement could stall other legislative priorities including a long-term budget deal, immigration reform and passing a farm bill: Dan Balz of The Washington Post, John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times, and Jeff Zeleny of ABC News.
    * Secretary of State John Kerry remains optimistic that the US and international community will be able to reach a deal with Iran over its nuclear program before the end of the month. Kerry returned to Washington this week empty-handed after talks in Geneva failed to yield an interim deal. Kerry spent part of the week trying to persuade skeptical lawmakers on Capitol Hill determined to impose a new wave of sanctions on Iran that some members of Congress believe would give the US increased leverage in negotiations. Indira Lakshmanan of Bloomberg News traveled with the secretary of state and will report on the sticking points of a deal to limit Iran's nuclear program.

    Examining California's Criminal Justice Experiment
    Two years into California's massive criminal justice experiment dubbed "realignment," a new Stanford University study examines how the reforms are playing out across the state's 58 counties, many with different resources and distinct approaches. Since realignment went into effect, more than 100,000 prisoners have been diverted from state prisons to county jails or probation. While some law enforcement agencies report rising crime rates and a decline in public safety, other agencies say they have renewed their emphasis on rehabilitation.
