Today on the 3@3, WBEZ's Steve Bynum and Achy Obejas discuss today's news and culture with host Steve Edwards.

Today's topics include:

Steve Edwards: The state pension debate heats up and so does the drama. Illinois Republican Mike Bost launched into an impassioned speech about Speaker Madigan and the lack of democracy in state government. Is he right?

Achy Obejas: Congress approval ratings have hit record lows. Both parties are taking the hit, but generic polls believe that the GOP is doing a better job than the Democrats. Why is this?

Steve Bynum: Last week, an 8 year-old boy from Skokie boy was killed by a car. The community has rallied around the family. Steve is a resident of the Skokie community and comments on how the small suburban community’s reaction to a child’s death differs from that of the big city.
