They won’t get away with this.
Recently on Fox News, Rep. James Comer (R-KY) condemned the push for giving Washington, D.C. statehood.
According to Breitbart, Comer stated, “They shouldn’t be a state because our founding fathers made it clear they wanted the capital city to be independent of any states. Washington, D.C. is the best-represented city in America in Congress. Each member of Congress spends half their year in Washington, D.C. If Washington, D.C., needs something, then the members of Congress will make sure of it. Plus, the 23rd Amendment gives Washington, D.C., three Electoral College votes in the presidential election. So, pound for pound, Washington, D.C. has more input than any major city in America on presidential elections.”
