    sounds to me like he just wants to redraw lines on a map

    not forcing anyone out of their house

    just those that used to live in dc, would now live in md or va depending upon where on the map they are

    it solves their taxation without representation issue completely

    no one other than the president and vice president would live in dc.....

    so no need for any congressman or senators

    i think it serves all well

    Since I'm in favor of DC becoming a state that means "I hate the Constitution". I would ask how you came to that conclusion, but as usual its baseless typical ****.

    He literally said he wanted to use eminent domain to force people to move.

    You didn't even read the Constitution, you just jumped on the bandwagon of some idiot Democrat who doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground, who wanted to institute PC fairness in DC. You didn't, but that jackass took an oath to protect the Constitution, and no where in it can an intent to form Washington DC into a state be found.

    [The Congress shall have Power] To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;
    What does the word regulate mean and why did the founders put a list of groups that congress can regulate commerce among? Why do you believe the federal government can regulate business when business is clearly not included as a group the congress can regulate?

    Still didnt explain how "I hate the Constitution". Its simple you made a baseless accusation.

    Congress takes up bill to make D.C. the 51st state
    Yes, otherwise it is taxation without representation. I might support a good argument for exempting areas in close proximity to the most essential federal buildings.

    My understanding is that DC will never be a state as long as Republicans can prevent it because they expect them to vote for Democrats. Same with Puerto Rico.

    Is this thread about congresses power to regulate commerce or is it about Washington DC statehood?
