House passes bill that includes support for DC statehood

The House of Representatives passed a bill last week that includes support for D.C. statehood.

H.R. 1, or the For the People Act, was passed along party lines on Friday by a vote of 234-193.

It’s a wide-ranging bill aimed at expanding voting access, revamping ethics investigations and would require presidential candidates to release tax documents. It also includes “extensive findings supporting statehood for D.C.” according to a statement from D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton.

D.C. should NEVER be a state! It is the seat of government as it was originally designed!

Just a ploy to add two more Dem senators to the mix.

More wasted time and taxpayers dollars to justify their phoney bulls**t jobs while neglecting the matters that desperately need to be resolved. Sickening.

DC 'statehood' is a crock. It was designed as a Federal District specifically to be apolitical and without a vote.
