Taxation Without Representation?

President Obama was asked about the prospect of the District of Columbia becoming the 51st state during a town hall at a city school. The President said,"I'm for it," adding that he has been "for quite some time." He added that:"The politics of it end up being difficult to get through Congress,but I think it's absolutely the right thing to do."

What's Your Take? Do you support DC Statehood?

The District's lack of voting representation in Congress has been an issue since the capital's founding. Numerous proposals have been introduced to change this situation, including legislation and constitutional amendments, returning the District to the state of Maryland, and making the District into a new state. All proposals have been met with political or constitutional challenges. Will never happen

As citizens living in the United States, the more than 600,000 residents of Washington, D.C., should have the same right to determine how they are governed as citizens of a state
