Daily Kos Radio's Kagro in the Morning show podcasts are now available through iTunes.

It's Tuesday, and there's really never anything interesting about Tuesdays. Mondays are terrible, of course, but at least we can all commiserate about it being Monday. Tuesday doesn't even have that going for it, and it's as far as possible away from the weekend without having the commiseration factor going for it.

People are still wrapping their heads around the filibuster thing, and we'll watch them do that. Other crazy people are doing other crazy things, and we'll share my tabs full of them and see where that goes.

So how's that for a plan? I'll bet that made you forget it's Tuesday!

We're LIVE at 9 a.m. ET with Kagro in the Morning, thanks to

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

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.

    At least one person, Officer Bean, said he has already received a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder. He said he had been unable to return to work since the shootings, and had needed medication to sleep.

    The officers and their union are reaching out to state lawmakers, hoping to expand workers’ compensation benefits to include those who witness horrific violence.

    “Our concern from the beginning has been the effects of PTSD,” said Eric Brown, a lawyer for the union that represents the Newtown police. “We estimate it is probably going to be 12 to 15 Newtown officers who are going to be dealing with that, for the remainder of their careers, we imagine, from what we’ve been told by professionals who deal with PTSD.”

  •  Filibuster Non-Reform (0+ / 0-)

    I was a little stunned when I watched the votes on the Sandy Relief Bill in the Senate yesterday (one to require that the cost be offset by other cuts which failed, and one to pass the bill).  I was not stunned that almost all of the Republicans voted for the "pay-for", and against the bill, I'm used to that from them.

    I was stunned because immediately after dispensing with the filibuster rules issue where we are supposed to be starting on a path of comity in the Senate where we are told filibustering will be less frequent, Reid/McConnell set up both of the Sandy votes as "Silent Filibusters" requiring 60 votes to pass.


    What's up with that?  While the amendment was defeated with 62 votes and the bill passed with 62 votes (no harm, no foul), there was obviously no need for a 60 vote threshold as far as our side is concerned.

    If Reid just went with it because he knew he had the votes (which I doubt), it perpetuates the myth that everything in the Senate requires 60 votes which just reinforces the filibuster mystique.

    If McConnell was threatening a filibuster, which is usually the reason for the silent filibuster threshold, then it would appear that nothing much has changed with regard to the Republican's propensity to use the filibuster with reckless abandon.  You have to admit if they are threatening a filibuster on Sandy relief after the Christie outrage at the House Republicans, I don't see much hope for most any other legislation getting passed without 60 votes.

    What do you think?

      It's a variant of the silent filibuster that I call the "painless filibuster." Instead of going through the trouble of filing a cloture petition, waiting for it to ripen, voting on it, and then running out the clock on post-cloture time, you instead agree that if the bill can get 60 vote to pass, you'll forgo all that nonsense.

      Sometimes it makes sense. But here, it did not. If Republicans were going to filibuster the Sandy relief bill, we should have let them do it.

      We're not going to get anywhere with this thing.

    Pass such a law by simple majority.
