That's $55,000 for every man, woman and child in the U.S. So eight regular people were asked to do something about it. Four Democrats and four Republicans gathered with a goal, to balance the federal budget, something Congress cannot do. We watch as they argued, fought, and negotiated their way to a settlement, a balanced budget that both sides agreed to. Watch as they came down to the wire and made an agreement with a few minutes to spare. And once it's over, you can't help but say, "If eight regular people can do it, why can't Congress?"

10:00 PM
Moyers & Company The Fight -- and the Right -- to Vote In the last four years, close to half the states in the US have passed laws restricting the right to vote, the most fundamental principle of democracy. A new nationwide effort to suppress the vote, nurtured by the Republican Party's desire to hold onto political power, fear and fierce resistance to inevitable demographic change, has hammered the country. Shelby County v. Holder, last year's Supreme Court decision revoking an essential provision of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, upped the ante and has encouraged many states to try to impose restrictive voter ID laws, as well as gerrymander congressional districts and limit registration and voting hours. The argument made in favor of this vast disenfranchisement is rampant voter fraud -- that people manipulate the system to cheat and throw elections. But in state after state, there is rarely proof of anyone showing up at the polling place and trying to illegally cast a ballot. This week Bill Moyers talks with an attorney and journalist, each of whom has been deeply involved in the ongoing vote suppression controversy. Sherrilynn Ifill is president and director-counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, a noted civil rights litigator whose work has included landmark voting rights cases. She notes that, "A core tenet of the civil rights movement rested on the centrality of voting as an expression of citizenship and dignity in our republic." Ari Berman is a contributing writer for The Nation magazine and author of the upcoming book, Give Us the Ballot: The Modern Struggle for Voting Rights in America. "Just as Dixiecrats once used poll taxes and literacy tests to bar black Southerners from voting," he has written, "a new crop of GOP governors and state legislators has passed a series of seemingly disconnected measures that could prevent millions of students, minorities, immigrants, ex-convicts and the elderly from casting ballots."

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Shoulder Arthroplasty The shoulder is a marvel of the human body. It's a "ball-and-socket" joint, where the collarbone, the shoulder blade and the upper arm bone work in tandem to provide arm flexibility. A strong healthy shoulder is necessary for even the simplest movements. But repetitive movement can overstress the shoulder joints and result in tendon tears, instability, and fractures. When this happens, one of the remedies may be shoulder arthroplasty, a procedure that replaces shoulder bones with an artificial shoulder. In this program we will explore the delicate workings of the shoulder, educate viewers on shoulder arthroplasty, and hear from patients who have benefited from this procedure.

In this program, we will educate viewers on Adrenal Cancer, with discussions on its history, screening, diagnosis, management, and the importance of patient care.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Pancreatic Cancer Hidden between the stomach and backbone, and surrounded by the liver and intestines, is one of the most important organs of the body - the pancreas. Without its digestive enzymes, our bodies could not break down food. Insulin is also made in the pancreas. Pancreatic cancer is difficult to diagnose early, primarily because the symptoms are often vague at first. Eventually patients may detect a yellowing of the skin and eyes, pain in the abdomen and back, weight loss and fatigue. Because this cancer is often discovered late, it typically has time to spread to other organs of the body. In this program, we will look at the risk factors, signs, symptoms, and diagnostic techniques for pancreatic cancer. We will also discuss the importance of patient care, improving patients' quality of life, and the latest research underway for this disease.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Learning about Advanced Breast Cancer In its early stages, breast cancer usually has no symptoms. Detecting a lump by way of breast examination, or having a mammogram, is typically how breast cancer is discovered and why regular examinations are so important. But due to metastases that occur with advanced breast cancer, symptoms may sometimes occur. These include: reddish, pitted surface on the breast, breast pain, bone pain, skin ulcers, unintentional weight loss, and shortness of breath. Advanced breast cancer patients have different needs and challenges than those with early stages of breast cancer, so overall patient care is extremely important. And when it comes to developing targeted cancer treatment strategies, doctors now know that the biological make-up of cancers vary greatly which will determine which treatments to recommend. In this program, we will delve into the study of advanced breast cancer; meet some of the country's leading researchers in the field, and spend time with patients who deal with the difficulties surrounding this disease.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Managing Female Stress Urinary Incontinence An unintentional loss of urine is called, urinary incontinence. Stress incontinence is caused when a physical movement or activity puts pressure (stress) on the bladder. Female stress incontinence is very common, and, in many cases, can be treated. Women in their 30s and beyond can be susceptible to this condition. Certain physical changes that can occur during pregnancy, childbirth, and also menopause, can result in stress incontinence. Throughout these events, muscles and ligaments that support the bladder can become weakened, eventually causing urine to leak into the urethra during moments of physical stress. Stress can be created through simple daily acts such as lifting an object, sneezing, coughing, even laughing, or any similar activities that put pressure on the bladder. In this program we will give dialogue to a topic that many of those affected often feel too embarrassed to discuss. We'll meet with medical experts and their patients, as they define this common condition and how it is managed.

A new documentary puts the spotlight on this "Silent Majority." THE SILENT MAJORITY gives some interesting answers as to what teens want and their desire to stay drug-, alcohol- and tobacco-free.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Understanding Organ Donation & Transplantation The human body has 78 organs. Due to illness or injury, if one of your organs fails, you may need a transplant. An organ transplant is when doctors remove a healthy organ from one person and place it in the body of another. The organ may come from a living donor or a deceased donor. Whatever the origin, becoming an organ donor offers hope to thousands of people each year in need of a transplant. Daily, about 79 people receive an organ transplant. Eighteen others, however, will die waiting for a transplant that can't take place because of an organ shortage. Every 10 minutes another name is added to the waiting list. Among the major organs regularly transplanted are heart, lung, pancreas and small intestine. However, the two organs most consistently transplanted are the kidney and the liver. In this program, we will discuss the importance of organ donation and transplantation, hear from leading researchers in the field, visit with patients and family members whose lives have been changes by having received an organ transplant, and go to "The Transplant Games" in Houston, Texas, as donation recipients show firsthand how organ transplantations change lives.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind MDS: A Disease of Abnormal Blood Cells Levels Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a group of diseases that affect the bone marrow and blood. In MDS, the blood-forming cells in the marrow slow down, or even stop. Most patients with MDS will develop anemia caused be a low number of red blood cells, and may need blood transfusions. Some patients also have low numbers of white blood cells whose job is to fight infections, and platelets which help blood clot when we're bruised or cut. About 19,000 people are diagnosed with MDS in the United States each year. And although it can affect people of any age, the majority is older than 60 years. Exposure to certain industrial chemicals or radiation can increase the risk of developing MDS. In some cases, it is caused by chemotherapy used to treat a different disease. This is called secondary MDS. In most cases though, the cause of MDS is unknown. In this program, we will explore the science behind this disease, learn from leading experts in the study and treatment of MDS, and hear the stories of patients whose lives are affected by MDS.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Learning About Primary Immunodeficiency However, a pattern of frequent and recurring infections is not - such as pneumonia, bronchitis, sinus infections, ear infections, meningitis or skin and blood infections. The reason for these frequent occurrences may be a condition known as, primary immunodeficiency. The result can be a compromised immune system which can be serious, lead to chronic illness, permanent organ damage, or even death. Because these frequent infections are longer lasting and often harder to treat than those that occur in a normally functioning immune system, it's critical to detect, diagnose and treat primary immunodeficiency before it becomes a serious problem. In this program we will study the science behind primary immunodeficiency. We'll also learn how doctors help patients deal with this disorder, and, how patients can live normal productive lives when PI is properly managed.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Gaucher Disease: An inherited condition of the Body's Organs Gaucher disease is an inherited disorder that affects many of the body's organs and tissues. From infancy to adulthood, Gaucher can be diagnosed in most all age groups. Gaucher is the result of a buildup of certain fatty substances in certain organs, particularly the spleen and liver, causing these organs to become enlarged, affecting their normal function. Type 1 is the most common, and is called non-neuronopathic Gaucher disease because the brain and spinal cord are typically not affected. Types 2 and 3 are known as neuronopathic because they typically do affect the brain and spinal cord. Type 2 is usually life-threatening beginning in infancy. Type 3 also affects the nervous system, but usually progresses more slowly than type 2. One person out of 50,000 - 100,000 is affected by this Gaucher. However, Type 1 is present 1 in every 500 to 1000 people of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry. In this program, we will meet leading medical researchers who work diligently to better understand and manage this condition, and we'll spend time with Gaucher patients and their families who live with this often debilitating disease.

SONGS TO KEEP: TREASURES OF AN ADIRONDACK FOLK COLLECTOR The Emmy-winning special SONGS TO KEEP: TREASURES OF AN ADIRONDACK FOLK COLLECTOR opens a musical time capsule from a hundred years ago. Marjorie Lansing Porter (1891-1973) dedicated her life to preserving the rare folk songs of the Adirondacks. Throughout the 1940s and '50s, Porter traveled throughout New York State, interviewing and recording traditional musicians and singers in the hopes of creating a comprehensive collection of previously unpublished folk songs, transcripts and other writings. Like folksong collectors Alan Lomax and Anne and Frank Warner, Porter captured many songs just before the last living tradition bearers died. The Marjorie L. Porter Collection of North Country Folklore consists of more than 300 traditional ballads, songs from lumber camps and iron mines, Irish and French-Canadian songs, and Iroquois chants. The collection also includes dozens of oral histories and Porter's collected writings. SONGS TO KEEP features contemporary folk musicians Lee Knight, David Ruch, Dan Berggren, Alex Smith and others discussing and performing these traditional tunes.

His complex mathematical theories unlocked the mystery and power of a force few of his contemporaries understood. DIVINE DISCONTENT: CHARLES PROTEUS STEINMETZ traces the life and career of "The Wizard of Schenectady" (1865-1923) — from his immigration from Germany to his pioneering work with General Electric to the physical challenges he faced throughout his life. Standing just over four feet tall, Steinmetz transcended his multiple physical disabilities, including hip dysplasia, curvature of the spine and dwarfism, to live a robust, active life.
