Time for Jim Moran to Retire

Guest post from Cindi, in Westover:

"It's time for Congressman Jim Moran to announce he's retiring. He's been in Congress for 19 years. He's going nowhere. The Democratic leadership will never appoint him to a major leadership position. His legislation is going nowhere, and hasn't gone anywhere for years in a Democratic Congress. He's under investigation with his good bud, John Murtha, for favors to military contractors in return for campaign cash. All Jim Moran's done for the past decade is talk...and more talk. Time for a Progressive to repreeent us in Congress what can and will get things done? I hope so."

Republicratic Leadership Furious at Anti-HOT Lanes "Obstructionists"

Leaders of both the Republican (Bob McDonnell) and Democratic (Tim Kaine) Parties are furious at Arlington and Alexandria anti-Hot Lanes "obstructionists". Both political parties were recipients of hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from the corporations that signed contracts to build and operate HOT Lanes on I-495, I-95 and I-395. Moreover, for almost 8 years Republicratic leaders have been promising outer-suburb constituencies that more lanes would be added to I-66 and I-95.
