Paul Wiedefeld has started to turn the troubled ship that is Metro, and his logical proposal for a long-term funding plan is worthy of careful consideration.

Where I really was able to look in the mirror and say, you know, I'm comfortable to be in the reality that I'm in, was when I was at the inauguration.

At that moment, I was very peaceful with the role I was playing.feedback

Like, if they didn't have me – I'm it. They wouldn't have anyone. So I prayed the system worked. And usually it did, but not always.feedback

Four hundred years after the death of Pocahontas, our country continues to do a disservice to her descendants by failing to recognize the major role Virginia's tribes have played in American history and the fabric of our nation. These six tribes have treaties that predated the United States, but because of this historical quirk and the systematic destruction of their records, they have been denied federal recognition and the services that come along with it. Congress can fix this injustice by passing our bill and granting these tribes the federal recognition they deserve.feedback

The fact that they [issued the statement] and imposed this religious test against Muslims in the executive orders on the same day, this is not a coincidence.feedback

Jan 29 2017 - Holocaust

This is what Holocaust denial is. I think all of these things are happening together, when you have the chief political adviser in the White House, Steve Bannon, who is connected with a news organization that traffics in white supremacy and anti-Semitism, and they put out a Holocaust statement that omits any mention of Jews.feedback

Jan 29 2017 - Holocaust

"It's a religious test,". "It imposes a different burden on Muslims than others. And the irony is not lost on me that it was issued the same day as the White House issued their Holocaust Remembrance Day proclamation that, unlike any previous administration, removed all reference to Jews.feedback

Al Gore did, in a very gracious way that was very patriotic, accept the results once the court process was complete. But all along the way, he did it in a respectful tone. Did Al Gore ever say things were rigged? Did he use that kind of language? Absolutely not.feedback

We've got to keep regulation on abusive practices and on Wall Street, so that Wall Street doesn't tank Main Street again. These are their ideas, but they're our ideas too: We put Dodd-Frank in place for a reason, and we want to strengthen it, not get rid of or weaken it.feedback

Oct 18 2016 - Wall Street

Oct 04 2016

How many of us are in the church and are deeply serious about our faith and agree with 100 percent of church doctrine?feedback

Sep 11 2016 - Homosexuality

I knew gay couples as friends, in my neighborhood. I knew them to be great neighbors. I knew them to be great parents to beautiful kids. And I saw them struggle with antiquated and even hostile adoption laws.

The LGBTQ community vote in so many of our battleground states can be the difference between victory and defeat.feedback

She's consistent. She has battled to put kids and families first since she was a teenager – in good times and bad, in victory and defeat, in and out of office, through hell or high water.

Jul 13 2016 - Zika

This is why people hate Congress. This is why people hate Washington.feedback

Jun 26 2016 - Abortion

I don't like it personally. I'm opposed to abortion. I deeply believe, and not just as a matter of politics, but even as a matter of morality, that matters about reproduction and intimacy and relationships and contraception are in the personal realm. They're moral decisions for individuals to make for themselves. And the last thing we need is government intruding into those personal decisions.feedback
