Daily Kos Radio is all my opponent ever talks about!Daily Kos Radio is on the air, Monday through Friday, now from 9 a.m. to noon, ET. We start with two hours of the Kagro in the Morning show from 9-11, and then it's The Ministry of Truth, with Armando Llorens, starring Jesse LaGreca from 11-12.
How to Listen
Your options to listen LIVE:
For podcasts you can stream or download, watch the Daily Kos Radio group page, where we post our shows daily.
We're working toward a solution that'll enable us to take your calls during the show without blowing up our computers. But in the meantime, you can reach me at @KagroX on Twitter with comments, suggestions, story ideas, etc. Try your hand at the job of Program Director! If you're any good at it, maybe we'll hire you #Retroactively!
And hey... psst! If I told you that one of these days soon we might just try a super secret experiment with phone calls, but you'd have to listen in to get the number, would you do it? You know you would! So admit it, already! Start listening!
What'd you miss if you skipped Daily Kos Radio yesterday? Well, some of the good stuff went like this:
Marriage equality and the historic wrongness of Republicans on everything of consequence, ever:
On today's show
We'll start with a Congressional round-up, then open the door for DemFromCT's daily polling and issues report. We'll review the news, Teh Hotness from Twitter, and check in with the Romneybot3000 and Hunter's The Chronicles of Mitt.
Be sure to hang around afterwards for Jesse and Armando, and a full day of solid, progressive programming afterward, brought to you by the gang at Netroots Radio!

What's happening in Congress today?
In the House
The House takes up the Republican tax bill today, proposing to extend the Bush tax cuts, yet again, for everybody. Dems will have an opportunity to offer a substitute, which will likely be the Senate-passed version, extending the cuts only for those under that first quarter-million dollars per family. The substitute will be rejected, of course, leaving us with one Senate-passed vehicle with a blue slip problem, and a different House-passed vehicle in which the Senate has no interest. And a five week recess coming.
Other House agenda items for the day include another 10 suspension bills, and postponed votes on 14 of yesterday's suspensions. But not the abortion bill from yesterday. That one they got right to voting on. You betcha.
In the Senate
The Senate continues to debate the cybersecurity bill. How's that going? Well, they filed for cloture on it yesterday. So what else do you need to know? They're still attempting to work out a deal on amendments, but that cloture motion becomes ripe for a vote tomorrow, so that controls the clock. Whether or not they can get cloture on the bill without a deal on amendments remains to be seen. But why expect any deals on anything, at this point?
