    Simple Congress must pass all Laws that the City Council puts forth if the Democrats try to push this thru then Cons. Dems and Main Stream Rep. will force a fight over the Districts Budget this isn't the first time the District has put themself into a sticky problem with Congress.

    Officially no but Un-Officially there has been talk by both sides that this wasn't one of the smarts things that the City Council has done.

    Then "officially" you are just making wild conjectures and until you have something "official", this argument is "officially" a fantasy you are trying to peddle as reality.

    Sort of like your girlfriend living in DC and DC driver's licenses coming from Maryland or Virginia.

    It has to go to congress. There is no evidence whatsoever there will be a real fight over this. No one is going to stop funding DC, that is just stupid.


    I just did see above
    And I can show you how it won't, using the same method you used: it won't be a fight.

    Source? This sounds like wild conjecture, and I have heard nothing.

    No, they are not. They have Virginia and Maryland addresses. If they were part of the District, they would have DC addresses. Your girlfriend may say DC but she lives in Georgetown Maryland.

    Sort of like living in "LA" but having a Hollywood address.

    You need to just consult a map and the postal service web site. This conversation is pointless by now. You aren't going to accept a fact if it comes up and bites you on the ass so I'm basically talking to a wall at this point.

    I looked it up, it's Georgetown, Washington DC. There is no mention of Georgetown being part of any state, which is to be expected since DC is not part of any state.

    What city budget? Dude. Wikipedia is your friend.

    Washington, D.C. - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    The mayor and council adopt a local budget, which must be approved by Congress. Local income, sales, and property taxes provide about 67% of the revenue to fund city government agencies and services. Like the 50 states, D.C. receives federal grants for assistance programs such as Medicare, accounting for approximately 26% of the city's total revenue. Congress also appropriates money to the District's government to help offset some of the city's security costs; these funds totaled $38 million in 2007, approximately 0.5% of the District's budget.[146] The Federal government operates the District's court system,[147] and all federal law enforcement agencies, most visibly the U.S. Park Police, have jurisdiction in the city and help provide security as well.[148] All local felony charges are prosecuted by the United States Attorney for the District of Columbia.[149] U.S. Attorneys are appointed by the President and funded by the United States Department of Justice.[150] In total, the federal government provided about 33% of the District's general revenue.[151] On average, federal funds formed about 30% the states' general revenues in 2007.[152]
    So what have we established?

    1. The 'police' from Virginia and Maryland have no jurisdiction in what is considered The District of Columbia. Not sure where you got that bit of information from.

    2. The budget of D.C. consists of local funds from people living in D.C. & federal funds. Just like the budget of every other city/state in the country.

    What are you talking about? What is the problem with the city's budget? And how does gay marriage create a problem for this budget? What changes? Please instead of just throwing out red herrings why don't you tell us what Virginia and Maryland have to do with two guys sucking dick in D.C.! FOR ****S SAKE!

    If Georgetown is part of D.C. and she lives in D.C. then there is no way she could have a Maryland DL. Unless of course she can pays bills in her name in Maryland and the DMV allows them as proof.

    District of Columbia: Department of Motor Vehicles - Services - Drivers' Licenses - Getting Your Learners' Permit

    Requirements
    Proof of name and date of birth (must be at least 16 years of age)
    Proof of DC Residency
    Proof of Social Security Number
    No outstanding debts to the District of Columbia or unpaid fines for moving traffic violations in other jurisdictions
    Proof of parental approval (if applicant is 16 or 17 years old)
    All documents required for obtaining a DC driver's license
    And obviously unless she lived in Georgetown pre-1790.
