Hey, the U.S. Senate passed a budget!! Even though my opening bit of reciting the number of days since the Democrat-controlled Senate last passed a budget (1,424 days since the last one) can now be put aside, today is shaping up to a busy show nonetheless. As per usual, The Closer will be on the air from 1:00 until 3:00 pm Central.
At 1:15, my own MN state rep Jim Abeler will call in to talk about the continual DFL overreach this legislative session, including the passage of the monstrosity known as the MN health insurance exchange (now known as "MNSure").
At 2:00, my longtime friend Nancy LaRoche will call in on the heels of her victory as chair of the CD5 Republicans! She'll likely address the road ahead in a Congressional District that has been the victim of a DFL stranglehold for far too long.
Then at 2:15, it's a Northern Alliance Radio Network Super Show, as my friend and NARN colleague Mitch Berg will talk about his week at the Capitol. Mitch attended the myriad DFL "gun grab" hearings and, as always, has much to share about the issue. We'll also chat about the CD4 GOP convention, which he attended Saturday.
So please give us a call at (651) 289-4488 if you'd like to discuss
any of the topics we plan on addressing. You can also text
comments/questions to (651) 243-0390.
You can listen live in the Twin Cities at AM 1280 on your radio dial. In and out of the Minneapolis-St Paul area, you can listen to the program on the Internet by clicking this link.
Even though I have a face for radio, there is a UStream channel where you can watch the broadcast, if you so desire. Check it out here.
For mobile phone users, there are apps available for iphone, Blackberry and Android!
