Prior to your home passed the DC statehood costs 216-208, McCarthy stated, “Upending a framework that has been in place since 1869. Yesterday it was reported 100 Democrats to sign a letter urging Democrats to abolish the filibuster. And not since the democratic party is pushing to silence the voice of many Americans. And now the Democrats are moving on D.C. Statehood, another ploy to consolidate power so they can jam through socialist policies, like the green new deal, court-packing, and defending of the police. They do not even deny that that is their objective.”
Democratic representation in the United States federal government is a socialist conspiracy for Democrats to combine power. If D.C. ended up being a state, it would be bigger than 3 red states in regards to population (Alaska, Wyoming, and North Dakota).
It is unfair for little red states to have outsized Senate representation while D.C. has none.
D.C. statehood frightens Republican politicians since it would hand Democrats a Senate bulk that would damage the filibuster and offer most of Americans a federal government that would react to and represent their requirements, and democratic representative federal government is the opponent of the Republican politician Celebration.
