But it will die just as surely with opposition in the Senate from Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.Democratic leaders and DC officials announced the vote at a press conference. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said

Its not about taxation without representation. It's about picking up two more democrat senators. If your serious about taxation without representation, shrink the city and return the remaining territory to Maryland. Better yet..... relocate the capital to the Midwest and return DC to Maryland.

Frankly, there shouldn't be anyone on site in D.C. who votes there. Thy should all be registered to vote, and hole a residence in one of the surrounding states. The District of Columbia should only be for office space for Government, along with temporary residences for Congress, when in session, foreign diplomats and their entourage, and the on-site military force that defends the Capital, and votes like any military force when overseas. There should be no elected officials OF Washington D.C. Only hired help, living outside the city, required to maintain and clean. The Capitol Police should be managed out of Congress, while the Washington D.C. expeditionary force is managed by CIC.

the District of Columbia was created by the Founding Fathers, in part, to keep it out of politics. and if the District had been managed properly, there would be no residences there - just federal buildings. I have long been in favor of rezoning the District, moving family residences to Virginia and Maryland, thus giving them representation. It would increase Dimocrats in the House, a small price to pay, but it would shut the mouths of Pelosi and norton, a wonderful; benefit. The hidden advantage for the leftist loons? No longer would they have to say they lived in Washington, named after a slave owner, in the District of Columbia, named after Christopher Columbus, who is perceived to be an all around bad guy.

Another waste of Congressional time by the Democrats for partisan political purposes, as it is wishful thinking that the wimpy Congressional Republicans would knowingly commit political suicide by essentially granting the Democrats two more US Senators and two more Congress-critters by transforming a city into a state. If the Democrats could get away with doing that, they would most likely come back and demand that all the leftist and liberal Democrat controlled inner cities be transformed into new states.

Better yet, why not simply expand that scope to include the main counties in Virginia that encompass most of the Federal employees, and remove them from VA into the new State? Maybe Virginia would turn back into Red state. And, don't the Obama's live in DC?

LONDON– Workmen began removing protective hoarding around a statue of Britain’s wartime leader Winston Churchill on Wednesday ahead of a visit from French President Emmanuel Macron, after the monument was covered up during racial equality protests. London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s office confirmed the uncovering was linked to Macron’s visit, which marks the 80th anniversary of General Charles de Gaulle’s radio address to France after the Nazi invasion in 1940, broadcast from London by the BBC. The plinth of Churchill’s statue outside parliament was daubed with graffiti that said “Churchill was a racist” during a Black Lives Matter march 10 days ago. The authorities feared it was at risk
