Democrat Jim Moran, Violent Racist

Congressman Jim Moran is an old white Democrat from Virginia who thinks he can judge whether we minority conservatives are acting sufficiently non-white enough. Moran’s an inveterate bully, a brawler, a crook and a bigot. And not one of his civility-preaching liberal colleagues has the courage to call him out. Responding on cable news to GOP Rep. Allen West’s blunt criticisms of President Obama this week, Moran derided the retired U.S. Army colonel, who is black, as “not representative of the African-American community.” Moran then launched into the kind of tired ...

Moran's News Commentary:Remarks on the Payroll Tax Extension

Congressman Jim Moran's remarks, as prepared, on H.R. 3630, the payroll tax conference committee report. The bill passed the House on February 17, 2012. I rise this morning against a Payroll Tax extension that adds to the deficit and rejects the idea that all of us should sacrifice for the common good. Again, this body is asking only one group of Americans to bear the burden. And those individuals are federal employees - hard working members of the middle class dedicated to serving their country. Federal employees safeguard our nation, protect your food from contamination and ensure the ...

Moran Wants 'Go To Hell Barack' Ad Removed Fr. Metro Station

Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) wants the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority to remove a controversial anti-health care reform advertisement from a Northern Virginia Metrorail station that bluntly says "Go to hell Barack." As reported by Blue Virginia on Wednesday morning, the ad promotes the movie "Sick & Sicker" and reads "Barack Obama wants politicians and bureaucrats to control America's entire medical system" before declaring "Go to hell Barack." ARLNow reports that the ad in the Clarendon station has already been vandalized: "That's President Obama to you!!" Moran argues that ...

Moran Responds to Russian Sanctions
Washington DC - Congressman Jim Moran, Northern Virginia Democrat and senior member of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, released the following statement in response to sanctions announced earlier today by the Russian government: “While this does clarify my overseas travel plans, it seems that the Putin regime would be better served by addressing the consequences of encouraging and enabling Donetsk separatists to perform such a heinous act of cold blooded cruelty or utter incompetence that resulted in the mass murder of nearly 300 innocent civilians. “I suspect this is due to my amendment banning the US purchase of helicopters from Rosoboronexport, the Russian state arms dealer and principal supplier to the Assad regime in Syria.” The Moran amendment to the FY’13 and FY’14 Defense Appropriations Bills prohibits money from being used by the Department of Defense (DOD) to train the Afghan Special Mission Wing to operate or maintain Russian-made Rosoboronexport Mi-17 heli
Moran Commemorates 100th Anniversary of CRS
Washington, D.C. - Congressman Jim Moran, Northern Virginia Democrat, commemorated the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Congressional Research Service (CRS) today. First established as the Legislative Reference Service in 1914, the CRS provides legislative research and analysis to Members of Congress. “The Congressional Research Service has proven a superb resource to Congress during the past century by offering objective, nonpartisan comprehensive research on the issues that matter most to the American people,” said Rep. Moran. “CRS has armed Members of Congress with the knowledge and information needed to be effective lawmakers.” CRS is staffed by more than 600 expert policy analysts that produce reports and confidential memoranda at the request of Members, while also holding periodical briefings and seminars open to Members and their staffs. In FY 2013, CRS processed nearly 70,000 requests for information from Members and Committees, totaling 636,000 responses. CRS h
Moran Writes DoD Over F-35 Grounding
Washington DC - Congressman Jim Moran, Northern Virginia Democrat and senior member of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, today wrote to Lt. Gen. Christopher C. Bogdan, USAF, Program Executive Officer for the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter. Specifically, Rep. Moran expressed growing concern over the recent grounding of the entire fleet due to an engine fire. This delayed the plane’s European debut at the Royal International Air Tattoo and Farnborough International Airshow in the United Kingdom: “This most recent episode is only the latest in a series of highly disturbing developments, one that poses a grave risk to the personnel operating the aircraft and that should raise serious concerns about the viability of the program. I ask that you provide information to my office on the decision to ground the entire fleet in light of recent statements from the department that this may be an isolated incident,” Moran’s letter states. Rep. Moran goes on to question the wisd
Moran Welcomes Arlington House Donation
Washington, D.C. - Congressman Jim Moran, Northern Virginia Democrat and Ranking Member on the Interior and Environment Appropriations Committee, today released the following statement recognizing businessman and philanthropist David M. Rubenstein for his $12.35 million gift in support of the National Park Service’s Arlington House. “On behalf of 8th District voters and local history buffs I’d like to thank Mr. Rubenstein for his generous gift.  I’ve been a supporter of Arlington House, the Robert E. Lee Memorial, throughout my 24 years representing the people of Northern Virginia,” said Rep. Moran.  “Mr. Rubenstein’s philanthropy allows the flexibility needed to restore this historic site, working beyond the constraints of public funding to build on the restoration work already completed by the National Park Service.” Rubenstein’s gift will expand on the NPS’ recently completed restoration work Mr. Moran mentions to improve the visitor experience and services to
