President Obama made a stop in McLean today to talk about lasting federal funding for transportation. Noticeably absent was John Foust, Democratic candidate for Congress in Virginia’s 10th District where McLean is located. This despite sitting on numerous transportation boards as a member of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and voicing strong support for just about every policy Obama has put forth.
So why would Obama’s would-be rubberstamp avoid a choice photo opportunity?
Maybe it has something to do with the embarrassing revelation that John Foust campaign has hypoctically been pushing for the expansion of Medicaid with his wife heading up Women for Foust, all the while her OBGYN practice denies basic health services to the 28% of the women in Washington DC who are on Medicaid.
