Converting the end for loop (last 3 lines) into:

    print [(queues[j], json.get(queues[j])) for j in range(len(queues))]

Does that help?

General advice:
1. Instead of writing 'naked' code as you have done, if you wrap it into
functions (preferably small)
2. Contents similar to the original naked code but with print's replaced by 

you make your as well as those trying to help/collaborate with you
life easier

Also the above is a more or mechanical translation. However

something[j] ... for j in range(len(something))

is usually a sign of a C programmer writing python :-)
Usually better to write

x for x in something

Better to write that comprehension as

print [(q, json.get(q)) for q in queues]
