Biden administration says it supports bill to make Washington, DC a state

Biden administration says it supports bill to make Washington, DC a state
The administration of U.S. President Joe Biden on Tuesday formally expressed its support for a House bid to make Washington, D.C., the 51st state, saying it would provide the District with “long overdue full representation in Congress.”

“Establishing the State of Washington, Douglass Commonwealth as the 51st state will make our Union stronger and more just,” the Office of Management and Budget said in a statement on Tuesday. “Washington, D.C. has a robust economy, a rich culture, and a diverse population of Americans from all walks of life who are entitled to full and equal participation in our democracy.”

The statement called for Congress “to provide for a swift and orderly transition to statehood for the people of Washington, D.C.”

The Democratic-led House is expected to vote this week on the “Washington, D.C. Admission Act” (H.R. 51). The bill was passed by the House last year, but was unsuccessful in the then-Republican controlled Senate.

Democrats would need the support of at least 10 Republican senators in order to advance the bill without getting rid of the 60-vote filibuster.

FOR

Residents ‘deprived’ of representation

“For far too long, the more than 700,000 people of Washington, D.C. have been deprived of full representation in the U.S. Congress. This taxation without representation and denial of selfgovernance is an affront to the democratic values on which our Nation was founded,” the statement said.

Two states, Wyoming and Vermont, have fewer residents than Washington, D.C.

The average size of a congressional district is about 710,000, according to data from the Census Bureau.

AGAINST

Wouldn’t qualify as a congressional district

D.C. wouldn't even qualify as a singular congressional district and here they are, they want the power and the authority of being an entire state in the United States — and they want that power,” Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) said.

“The Founding Fathers never intended for Washington D.C. to be a state,” Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SD) wrote on Twitter, adding that the move “is really about packing the Senate with Democrats in order to pass a left-wing agenda.

And do we really want an uneven flag?

If Puerto Rico is granted statehood, there's an opportunity for it to become a massive tourism destination, far greater than what it is today.

Build up the infrastructure, line the beaches with 4 and 5 star hotels, legalize gambling and watch it become a huge tourist destination.

I know I'd certainly prefer to go there as opposed to Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, Cancun or Cozumel, especially in today's climate. Hell, if it was built out, I'd probably prefer it to Hawai'i as well, which to me has become way too commercialized to enjoy.

What do they bring to the table other than more demand for welfare?
This is a question to which I'd like to see the answer.

Why would they?

Use common sense. Why would "rules" for DC be different than a state?
If they maintain a home (maybe not even a requirement) and intend to return there in their home state, you think they lose their home residency if they are out of state for their job--a job that required them to be a resident of that state in the first place in order to get the job to represent it?
Cosmo you insufferable twat.

I'd certainly visit if they did. I wonder though if investors would take note of the fact PR is located in the "hurricane belt" which is predicted to become an even more hazardous situation?

The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico is a particularly vulnerable place in the United States in regards to climate change. Puerto Rico is uniquely susceptible due to it's status as an island on the hurricane belt, which puts it at risk for rising sea level and severe storms. In recent years, Puerto Rico has experienced devastating hurricanes, which are increasing in intensity and occurrence due to rising global temperatures (IPCC, 2014).

Would make just as much sense to make it a city of an existing state.

Doesn't really make sense either way, but eh...

Hawaii isn't all super commercial. In fact the big island is pretty drastically under developed. Spent 9 days there in March, it was amazing.

They do have gambling...I was there for just a day on a cruise stop but it was nice. I'm sure there are lots of shitty parts like most Caribbean islands though. And, like most US cities and states.

Good question.

But Cab San Lucas experiences Tropical Storm and Hurricane Season as well and it's been built up to be pretty damn amazing, at least near the beaches and city.

We were in Cabo back in 2006 when a hurricane passed by. Fortunately, there wasn't much damage, other than pool chairs and whatnot but the Sea of Cortez, which is already unswimmable due to the undertow, was freaking angry AF.

when the bullets start flying it wont make a difference. Democrats tip the scales and Republicans will respond in kind.

Can wait to see the Texas become 5 states.

Every rep who voted for this just violated their oath of office. Every. Single. One. Swore to uphold the Constitution. When is something going to be done about this recurring bullshit?

If you want to steal the Senate, do it the right way with an amendment.
