Democrats Reintroduce Bill to Grant D.C. Statehood

Legislation to provide what is now the District of Columbia with statehood has been reintroduced into both the Senate and House of Representatives respectively. If passed, DC will be shrunk to include only Federal property as the rest becomes the 51st state. A similar bill was introduced last year, though efforts at the time were blocked by President Trump and a Republican majority in the Senate.

DC cannot be a state because then the Federal Government offices would be on state land and thus subject to state laws. Constitutionally the Federal Government cannot be subject to state laws because of the Supremacy Clause.

DC does not need to be a state. If it is an issue of representation, just absorb the whole area into one or two of the surrounding states. Dems will only be able to do the usual gerrymandering then...

If Demacrats were serious about fixing the Electoral college, they would expand it from 2 Electoral votes per state to 2 votes per county. That way all counties would be represented, not just a few.

Hey Atlas shrugged it seems to me that most of the gerrymandering is being conducted by republicans. Try again.

Its pretty much a sure thing. The house and senate are democrat controlled. We'll enjoy the extra electoral clout, and the congresspeople.

Joseph you speak of constitution, trump broke every rule in the constitution. One example attacking the capital which is a treasonist act. And all those involved should be prosecuted as traitors.

Finally, obviously it should be a state. Otherwise you face taxation without representation. Something you silly Americans made quite the fuss about.
