    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.

    Mark Twain's Journey to Jerusalem: Dreamland MARK TWAIN'S JOURNEY TO JERUSALEM: DREAMLAND retraces Mark Twain's footsteps as a cub reporter on a bold adventure sailing around the Mediterranean and throughout Europe in 1867, with Jerusalem and the Holy Land as his ultimate destination. Narrated by Martin Sheen, the documentary reveals Twain's deep rooted and complex relationship with religion. Having regularly attended church services as a child with his devoutly Christian mother, and thoroughly educated on Christianity and the Bible, his childhood imaginings of the Holy Land are confronted with a vastly different reality; the monuments, cities, and landscapes aren't as grand as the Scriptures led him to believe. He also finds himself disillusioned by the poverty and squalor he witnesses beneath the "splendor" of European culture. The film chronicles Mark Twain's exploits on his landmark journey and establishes Twain as the voice of America - funny, sarcastic, and powerfully opinionated. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG
