Today on NewsTalk, Northern Virginia Rep. Gerry Connolly (D) talked about the news that American employers added nearly 250,000 jobs in January. The hiring surge beat expectations and dropped the nation’s jobless rate to near 8 percent. We also discussed the proposal to freeze federal worker pay, which Connolly called unfair and said will hurt the region’s economy.
We then previewed Super Bowl XLVI with former Giants and Jets LB John Booty and former Redskins lineman Ravin Caldwell. They also looked at the Redskins prospects for a turnaround next season and whether the team should go after Peyton Manning.
