And because I still care... What's happening in Congress today?

In the House

The House hasn't got much on the schedule today, but what's there is noteworthy. First, their attempt to start laying the groundwork for wriggling out of the supposedly mandatory, supposedly across-the-board spending cuts imposed by last summer's debt ceiling deal and the subsequent failure of the SuperCommittee. It's the "Sequestration Transparency Act," and it'll require the President, if it passes, to submit a report outlining some specifics about what'll get cut in order to hit the targets. The idea here is to force the President to be the first one to put his name to specific cuts. But the bill's coming to the floor under suspension of the rules, which means it needs a 2/3 vote to pass, and I'm not at all certain they can get that done. So it sounds like maybe the plan is to point to Democrats and try to blame them for not forcing the President to, uh... do this thing. Hmm. We'll see how well that works. After that, they'll start consideration of the Department of Defense appropriations bill. That's likely to stretch out over the next two and a half days or so, with an open rule and lots of amendments.

In the Senate

The Senate has given up on the DISCLOSE Act for now, and will spend the day trying to get a deal on a motion to proceed to the "Bringing Jobs Home Act." I wouldn't count on it, though, given the way things have been going. If nothing works out, they'll be voting on cloture on the motion to proceed tomorrow, instead.

On the Radio

Hey, I'm thinking there might still be a little Bain discussion tomorrow, as entire racks of shoes are beginning to drop. And I'm pretty sure Romney isn't going to be releasing any tax returns today, either. So we've got that going for us. Which is nice.

DemFromCT will be dropping by for a polling and issues update. And hey, who knows who else might get sucked into the vortex? Stay tuned, to find out! And 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!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
