the post was about GOP agreement dating back to the 1970s
Some GOPs. And it doesn’t make the Democrats argument any more honorable.
The Congress shall have Power To… exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States… (The U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 8, Clause 17)
I personally do not hold to the argument that Washington deserves or warrants Statehood. However if the process is followed and others think otherwise, my opinion is irrelevant. If Democrats truly believe this to be the right thing to do, then put it to the people and let them decide.
