Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

We are the Congressional Progressive Caucus, the largest Caucus of the Democratic Party.  We’ve been in existence since being founded in 1991, with a primary mission of giving a voice to the needs and aspirations of all Americans and to build a more just and humane society.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Today we held a press conference and unveiled the People’s Budget- a more realistic view of what can be done to balance the budget while making sure the burden is being borne by all, including the wealthiest 2% of our citizens who haven’t been shouldering their fair share.  

Tomorrow, Progressive Caucus Co-Chairs Raúl Grijalva and Keith Ellison, along with leading members of the Caucus will be here from noon til 2 pm EST to answer any questions you have about how we can work together to restore the American Dream. Members participating will be:

Rep. Raúl Grijalva (AZ), Co-Chair

Rep. Keith Ellison (MN), Co-Chair

Rep. Hank Johnson (GA), Whip

Rep. David Cicilline (RI)

Rep. Mike Honda (CA)

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (OH)

Rep. Jim McDermott (WA)

Rep. Jared Polis (CO)

Rep. Charlie Rangel (NY)

Rep. Peter Welch(VT)

We hope to see you here tomorrow as we start a conversation with you, the Progressive community so that we can work together to build a better country for us all.
