    Roll Call ^ | 4/03/14 | Hannah Hess
    Despite what constituents outside of Washington might think, members of Congress are underpaid, a House Legislative Branch appropriator suggested Thursday. Virginia Democrat James P. Moran said he plans to highlight the injustice by introducing an amendment to the Legislative Branch bill during its full committee markup, and at floor consideration of the bill. Moran made the comments while the bill that funds member’s $174,000 salaries was being marked up in the Legislative Branch subcommittee. “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid,” Moran told CQ Roll Call. “I understand that it’s widely felt that...

    what is viewed as a rush to the exits in the face of the Obamacare disaster and the Obama scandal machine bleeding into the 2014 mid-term elections, three prominent democrats in the U.S. Congress have announced their retirement this week. On Monday, 40-year Capitol Hill veteran and Pelosi Democrat, George Miller (D-CA) called it quits. Miller, 68, has been in the House since 1974, the year of Watergate. Miller stated that he looked “forward to one last year in Congress, fighting the good fight and then working in new venues on the issues that have inspired me.” Miller also indicated...

    Groups want ethics probe of Murtha, othersBy Sean Lengell Saturday, May 2, 2009 Four political watchdog groups that typically support Democratic causes want a congressional ethics panel to probe ties between three House Democrats and the defunct Washington lobbying firm, the PMA Group, which benefited from the lawmakers' help. In a letter Thursday to the House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct, the groups Common Cause, Public Citizen, Democracy 21 and U.S. PIRG asked for the panel to investigate whether Reps. John P. Murtha of Pennsylvania, Peter J. Visclosky of Indiana and James P. Moran of Virginia were influenced by...

    Democratic Leaders Ride to the Rescue of MurthaBy Emily Cadei, CQ Staff Wed Oct 29, 4:13 pm ET Rep. John P. Murtha is cashing in on his extensive network of House connections to help fend off a surging Republican challenge for his 12th District seat in Pennsylvania. The 17-term incumbent has raised more than $170,000 since Monday, a large slice of it from his Democratic colleagues. Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California kicked in $7,000 from her campaign and political action committees, as did Democratic Caucus Chairman Rahm Emanuel of Illinois and Rep. James P. Moran of Virginia, a fellow member...

    Knowing the 8th Congressional District tends to vote overwhelmingly Democratic, neither Tom O'Donoghue, 41, or Mark Ellmore, 47, wants to be seen as a hardline Republican. "I don't have an elephant tattooed on my back end," O'Donoghue said. "I'm reaching out to labor organizations and African-Americans," Ellmore said. "I'm not interested in playing politics, I'm only interested in being the best I can be and spreading my message of hope and unity." The two candidates, both Alexandria residents, are vying for the GOP nomination to challenge U.S. Rep. Jim Moran (D) in the fall. But first they will face each...

Moran, Jr. Estes and the co-operative's board of directors rejected offers of help from the city and a nonprofit developer and, with Chestnut's guidance, assembled a group of politically connected partners that includes several former Washington Redskins, the wife of U.S. Rep. James P. Moran Jr. (D-Va.) and KSI Services Inc., one of the region's largest developers. The team persuaded HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson to give Sursum Corda another chance, halted a mass eviction threatened for June 15 and...

    Last week was Public Service Recognition Week, a time to praise and appreciate the work that local, state and federal employees do for their communities and country on a daily basis. These citizens function as the backbone of our system of self-government In particular, I would like to thank the men and women who serve in our Capital region as federal employees. Home to over 350,000 workers, our system of self-government depends on their commitment, hard work and professionalism. From the first days of our developing nation to today, civil service has been the very essence of public service. That...

    The U.S. Congress turned a family tragedy into a political travesty with the case of Terri Schiavo. By ignoring the Constitutional and legal principles of states’ rights, separation of powers and sanctity of marriage, we created a precedent that will come back to haunt us for generations to come. The unprecedented Congressional action to pick sides in the fully adjudicated Schiavo family dispute, contributed to a 24/7 media circus over an issue that we were never factually, legally nor morally equipped to deal with. The media saturation has forced many Americans to confront such end of life decisions affecting their...

    The day after the latest anthrax scare, public officials focused on the role of a private Richmond laboratory and its powerful client, the U.S. Department of Defense, in a slow-moving response to what could have been a threat to hundreds of government workers. The negative results of additional tests taken from a Pentagon mail facility and a Defense Department mailroom in Fairfax County have prompted questions about the source of the anthrax. The positive results came from a swab of a 2-foot square filter last Thursday that was tested by Commonwealth Biotechnologies Inc., based in Chesterfield's Gateway Center. For reasons...

    A universal military draft could be in the works if a new approach to resolving the post-invasion turmoil in Iraq is not found, Rep. Jim Moran told a near-capacity audience at a town meeting here Monday. The event was held at the George Mason High School auditorium and featured sharp remarks critical of the Bush administration Iraq policy by former U.S. Ambassador Joseph Wilson. Asked by a Mason High student about the prospect of a draft, Moran cited comments by GOP Senator Chuck Hagel of Nebraska that such a draft could be the only logical consequence of the administration's current...

    Last night, the U.S. House shot down the military draft bill proposed by Democrats. The purpose of the bill was to scare college kids into voting for John Kerry. George Bush has never been in favor of the draft. But don't take my word for it. Check out the U.S. House's official website at the link below to see who sponsored the bill to reinstate the military draft. In the end, the sponsor of the bill to reinstate the draft, Charlie Rangel (D), didn't even vote for his own bill. The two "yea" votes were Democrats. The other sponsors of...

    It is interesting that of the $84,000 that officials of the now-outlawed Safa Group/Saar Foundation gave to politicians, $15,000 went to Virginia Democratic Congressman James Moran. That is more than any other politician received. Why was Moran so popular with this group? What is Moran doing that makes him so attractive to terrorists with money to give politicians?

    <p>Democrats missed a good chance to try to defeat President Bush's competitive-sourcing initiative, which would privatize some government jobs, and unions are blaming presidential candidates Sens. John Edwards and John Kerry for missing the vote.</p> <p>"There's disappointment that senators who are presidential candidates were not there," said one union source who had been tracking the issue. "It seems they may have been blindsided by the schedule of the vote, and if that's the case, it's certainly understandable, but it's disappointing."</p>

    Less than two weeks after announcing his candidacy, Arlington County Board member Jay Fisette said Monday he will not challenge U.S. Rep. James P. Moran in the 2004 Democratic primary race for the 8th District. After filing to run Aug. 6 and proclaiming the district needs a change in leadership, Fisette said he realized now is not the time to pursue the office. ``It became increasingly clear that this year's intra-party campaign will serve primarily as a referendum on the incumbent," Fisette said in a statement Monday. Fisette also said it would have been difficult to run a positive campaign...

The praise from Judie Brown referred to an incident involving Rep. James P. Moran, Virginia Democrat, who, according to eyewitness accounts, got into a shouting match May 4 with a priest at Blessed Sacrament Church in Alexandria after a homily touched on pro-life topics. Here's what we know: Two days before Election Day...
