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

OK, we should have our latest round of technical problems behind us and have our live stream up and running again.

I still owe you that latest example of the stark differences between the treatment of Second Amendment protesters and everyone else in America, and I'll try to get to that.

There continues to be no sign in the floor schedules in Congress of anything relating to an alternative to the looming sequester, though we'll see the House begin consideration of the Violence Against Women Act (or at least the rule for considering it), while the Senate looks to take up the Jack Lew nomination for Treasury Secretary, and waits out the ripening of a cloture motion on the motion to proceed to to S.388, the American Family Economic Protection Act. Why are we waiting on that? Didn't the standing order adopted as part of the weakened filibuster reform package say debate on motions to proceed would be time limited during the 113th Congress? Yes it did. I'll explain.

Robin Kelly won the Democratic primary in the election to replace former-Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., and Daily Kos got a special shout-out!

All this and more, coming up.

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.

    NBC/WSJ poll: Public says GOP less interested in unity than Obama is

    With the automatic across-the-board spending cuts set to begin on Friday, Americans are split over whether President Barack Obama is emphasizing unifying the country or taking a partisan approach, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

    But by nearly a 3-to-1 margin, respondents conclude that the Republican Party is emphasizing partisanship more than unity.
    NBC/WSJ poll: Public wary about sequester cuts, but Obama in stronger political position than GOP

    With automatic, across-the-board spending cuts set to begin Friday, majorities of Americans believe that approach is not a good idea and also say the contentious budget negotiations make them less confident about the U.S. economy, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

    Despite those findings, a majority still supports Congress moving ahead with either the current cuts or a plan containing even more cuts as a way to reduce the deficit, suggesting the public’s general appetite for reducing spending.

    But the poll also shows that as the nation’s political actors once again quarrel over these automatic cuts totaling $1.2 trillion over 10 years – commonly referred to as sequestration or the sequester – President Barack Obama finds himself in a much stronger position than his Republican adversaries.

  •  GOP Divisions Throw Wrench In Sequester Alternativ (3+ / 0-)

    The Senate was scheduled to vote Thursday on two sequestration alternatives — one authored by Democrats and the other authored by Republicans. The Democratic bill would replace sequestration with a mix of higher taxes on wealthy Americans and cuts to defense and agriculture spending. The GOP plan with the most support behind it is a plan that would provide the Obama administration some flexibility to apply sequestration in a less indiscriminate manner.

    But the vote on a Republican alternative appears likely to be delayed because as of Tuesday afternoon, Senate Republicans couldn’t agree among themselves on whether or how to proceed.

  •  Congressional Questions (1+ / 0-)

    Yesterday, Boehner came out to complain that the House passed two Budget Bills to avoid the Sequester which the Senate has not taken action on.

    In response, Pelosi correctly pointed out that those bills were passed by the House during the previous (111th) congress and per the constitution, are now dead.  She also stated that again per the constitution, Budget bills must originate in the House, and therefore the Senate cannot initiate such legislation.

    However, today we see that at least the Dems. plan to bring to the Senate floor a Budget-Type bill to replace the Sequester.  What gives?

    We all know that Pelosi is technically correct that budget bills cannot originate in the Senate.  But we also know that the Senate has often taken up any House bill and amended it completely to effectively include its own bill as a way of getting around the budget bill origination problem.  Is that what Reid is doing with the Sequester replacement or am I missing something?

    BTW - I am glad to hear that the Senate Dems. are putting a bill on the table to replace the Sequester before March 1.  This will make it clear when the Sequester happens, the consequences will be due to a combination of a Republican filibuster in the Senate and inaction by the Republican House.

    •  Revenue bills have to start in the House (2+ / 0-)
      Recommended by:

      Though sometimes, they like to expand that to include pretty much anything that has to do with money that they don't want the Senate to go first on.

      But budget resolutions can certainly start in the Senate.

      I don't know if the Senate has any House bills suitable to the task of carrying a Senate tax vehicle. Maybe. But it looks like Republicans have settled on an Inhofe-Toomey bill (S. 16) as their sequester replacement. So either they're counting on the House waving any objections to S. 16 should it pass, or maybe it's just all for show. And the Republicans may genuinely have reason to believe the House would waive objections (if any are applicable) to S. 16, because it's a Republican bill. And they may even be expecting to argue against adoption of the Democratic alternative by claiming that only their alternative has any chance of being accepted in the House, for just that reason.

      It should be a mess in there.
