It was another busy day on the Randi Rhodes Show today.

In the first hour, I welcomed The Hill’s Brent Budowsky to help us try to understand the budget quagmire in Washington DC.  Honestly, I can’t understand the rationale of Republicans who think that cutting programs to help the needy and cutting taxes on the wealthy individuals and corporations is the way to dig out of a devastating recession.

In hour two, I was joined by David Dayen, who does an amazing job with the news at FireDogLake.  I asked to to come on to talk about the 10-part series on HAMP (Home Affordable Modification Program) Part I of this series, Part II, Part III, Part IV, Part V, Part VI, Part VII, Part VIII, Part IX, Part X .

And in hour three, Jeremy Scahill was my guest, to talk about his cover story for The Nation, “The Dangerous US Game in Yemen“.  In case you’re wondering what we were talking about regarding Jeremy’s appearance on the Ed Schultz Show last night,  just watch this…

Tomorrow, we’ll wrap up the week and celebrate April Fools Day with John Fuglesang, Lizz Winstead, Jamie Killstein, Andy Cobb and Tom Tomorrow!
