SORT BY Relevancy
It is no exageration to say the Obama's "Executive Action" on immigration and it's funding will be looked at as Round 1 of the GOP-Obama Championship Fight. Both opponents have a lot to lose or gain by taking Round 1.
In one corner the GOP, with some confusion in interpreting the message sent in the mid-term election, are split as to what to fund in the upcoming budget vote.
In the other corner sits the bruised and battered Democrats who is suffering the same ailment. They are split on supporting President Obama's plan or go along with a "negotiated" budget.
In the middle of this fight stands Homeland Secretary Jeh Johnson, the benefactor of the plan and it's funding.
This fight could take place as early as today.
Join me this morning at 8AM-10AM EST by jumping "In the Pickle Barrel" as we discuss the pros/cons and expectated outcomes of Round 1.

So after a hard-fought political season, around 11:13 pm EST, it was almost anti-climatic when President Barack Obama was declared the winner this past Tuesday. Polls fluctuated, debate performances came and went and yet, without any recounts or hanging chads, the campaign was over. If you were to look or listen to the likes of Neal Boortz or Bill O' Reilly, we are just days away from the Apocalypse. President Obama's "opponents" can't even find it in their hearts to "congratulate" him for a well run campaign and a victory. O'Reilly's somber assessment is there is something wrong with the "majority" who elected him, and there is still nothing wrong with him or his views. But do they truly represent the majority of what is now the "minority" party, also know as the Republican Party. As President Obama gets back to work, there are people from both parties planning their next moves. How do the Democrats keep up the momentum, they are enjoying? How do the Republicans gain more traction and develop the next wave of young leaders within their party? At the same time, how do they juggle those strategies, while they do what they were elected to do...govern the country? Coming fresh off of her appearances on BET and Anderson Cooper, Our guest will be young Florida Republican Chelsi Henry. We will talk about what the strategies are that she believes her fellow Republicans will impose, how she believes the Republican controlled house will or will not work with the Obama Administration, and the importance of bipartisanship? The phone lines will be open.
Today, on The Meter, we discuss the legacy of Martin Luther King. The civil rights leader organized marches throughout his career that led to sweeping reforms in race relations. We will cover the latest in the New Jersey bridge "scandal" involving Gov. Chris Christie and how this may effect his presidential desires. As he midterm elections take shape a voter ID law in Pennsylvania has been struck down by a state judge claiming its an unreasonable burden. In North Carolina a judge has stuck down a law requiring a woman to have an ultrasound before an abortion. Are these cases a threat to democracy? In a seemingly rare moment of bipartisanship the US Congress passed a $1.1 Trillion spending bill that funds the government thought September reversing previous cuts and freezes. Please join the discussion at 10:00 AM. your not is essential.
"If you've got good people of good will on both sides who really want to get something done, you can have really good debates and then you compromise." This philosophy of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, if nothing else, should be the governing rule everywhere for state legislative action on broadband issues.
Iowa Democratic State Representative Mary Gaskill and Republican State Senator Mark Chelgren join us to discuss initiatives both legislators are pursuing to help bring better broadband to constituents. In addition, they give listeners valuable lessons for working effectively with elected representatives on both sides of the aisle.
Communities planning broadband projects are advised to include tactics for building strong working relationships with elected officials locally and at the statehouse. These relationships can be key to resolving some of the various challenges along the way to broadband deployment.
