Democrats want to turn Washington, DC into another state and for obvious reasons. It would give their party two more seats in the United States Senate. That’s the only reason Democrats want to do it.
The U.S. Constitution made the District of Columbia separate from the states because it is a federal district. It’s the seat of government.
Next week, the House of Representatives is going to vote on this.
Breitbart News reports:
House Will Vote on Whether to Make Washington D.C. a State Tuesday
The House of Representatives will vote Tuesday on whether to make Washington, D.C., a State.
The House Oversight Committee, chaired by Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), voted the bill, H.R. 51, out of committee by a vote of 25-19 to create D.C. statehood Wednesday.
Biggs’ view is supported by legal scholars, who opposed D.C. statehood’s feasibility without a Constitutional amendment to the 23rd Amendment. The Office of Legal Counsel in 2007 believed it was unconstitutional, the Justice Department under former President Reagan and former President Carter stated the transformation was unconstitutional, and so did Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, when he sat on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Additionally, twenty-two state Attorneys General sent a letter Tuesday to President Joe Biden and Congress arguing Washington, D.C., cannot transition into a state via legislation, but only through the method of a Constitutional amendment.
It’s amazing that Democrats are actually doing this.
