Violating Constitution Democrats Vote To Transform D.C. into a State

Violating The Constitution Dems Vote To Make D.C. 51 State

Straight Party Vote of 216-208.

Pelosi says Washington, DC residents as being “denied their right to fully participate in their democracy.”

Pelosi: Washington, DC “pays more federal taxes per capita than any other state. Its budget is larger than 12 states. Its population is larger than two states… Its people have been fighting for voting rights for 220 years, with a full 86 percent recently voting for statehood.

Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA) voiced his opposition to the idea that Washington, DC has no representation, calling it “absolutely false.”

“It does have local representation. [It] also has a delegate right here in the House of Representatives. And has electoral votes for the Presidential election. Seems like – something no other city in this country has. H.R. 51 flies in the face of what our founders intended,” Hice boldly said.

The Framers “never wanted the seat of our government to be a state, and they specifically framed the Constitution to say so,” he concluded.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) took the totality of the Democrats’ radical agenda to task. “Democrats started last week with one of their members saying we should get rid of the police all together. They ended last week with another one of their members being admonished by the trial judge in Minneapolis for saying ridiculous things,” he pointed out.

“And what did [Democrats] do in between?” he asked.

“They passed this bill out of committee which gives two new Democrat senators to the District of Columbia and, less than 24 hours after that bill passed in committee, they introduced legislation to pack the Supreme Court,” Jordan recalled.

“In three months of Democrats being in control of the federal government… They created a crisis on the southern border. And they continue their push to defund the police now so they can continue their radical policies,” he reminded the House floor.

“Think about what else they passed out of this body,” Jordan said.

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) argued that, “No state has been admitted by the Constitution, but no state was created from a territory which was crafted in the Constitution.”

The legislation will now proceed to the Senate, where Sens. Mark Kelly (D-AZ), Joe Manchin (D-WV), Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), and Angus King (I-ME) have said they are a doubtful “no” vote.

The Biden administration, supports D.C. statehood unlike previous Democrat administrations’ legal determinations of unconstitutionality.
