    statehood? I think they should get a Congressional district, but I'm not 100% sold on tossing in a Rep and 2 Sens.

    •  Yes, there is a case. (0+ / 0-)

      We've existed as a separate political entity for longer than 36 states have been in the Union.

      We have 600,000 people - more than Wyoming, which gets one representative, two Senators, and the right to make its own laws.

      And we're Americans - which means that we have the right to the exact same number of people representing us as everyone else has representing them. One representative, two Senators, full home rule.

      Statehood is the only progressive option.

      What have you done for DC statehood today? Call your Rep and Senators and demand action.
