Biden Officially Backs DC Statehood Bill

President Biden has officially endorsed a bill that would designate Washington, D.C as the country’s 51st state. The Democrat-led bill is an obviously partisan push to secure a lasting majority in Congress as the District is staunchly Democrat-leaning.

The Hill reports:

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

The House is scheduled to vote this week on legislation to make D.C. the country’s 51st state, after Democrats pledged to prioritize it during Biden’s first 100 days in office. The bill passed out of committee last week in a party-line vote.

The House previously passed the bill last year, but it went nowhere in the GOP-controlled Senate. Even with Democrats now in control of both chambers, D.C. statehood faces an uphill, unlikely, climb to actually passing Congress.

To advance the bill Democrats would need the support of 10 Republicans without getting rid of the current filibuster.

If only they read the Constitution – it clearly states that D.C. is not a state, but a neutral area for the lawmakers

District of Columbia was created as a FEDERAL district. The Constitution only allows TERRITORIES to apply for statehood.
Further, the only reason DC has it’s economic and cultural apparatus is because the STATES fed into it for the past 220 years. By itself, it never created anything

This is the complete INSANITY we will get for 4 years if we don’t take back the house and the Senate. At least the bleeding will subside if we’re successful. For anyone saying, then we have gridlock. That’s exactly what we want.
Are you turds who voted for this criminal/corrupt administration, have you had enough yet?
Haters of country and the people.

For Democrats, the Constitution is something to work around and manipulate, not to uphold. They even use the Supreme Court to abuse the Constitution, such as with Roe v Wade, the gay marriage decision, and the upholding of the clearly unconstitutional Obamacare with the invention of a tax out of a clear penalty (unfortunately, with the aid or the political Chief Justice John Roberts). Democrats despise the Constitution because it stands in the way of their immoral and destructive agenda.

Democrats love unconstitutional actions. Obama did and was slapped down several times by the Supreme Court. The Democrats on the Supreme Court abused the Constitution by Roe v Wade, by the gay marriage decision, and by upholding the unconstitutional Obamacare (unfortunately aided by the political Chief Justice John Roberts).

This needs an ammendment to the Constitution not a bill from Congress. I do not think 35 states would pass this even if they put it out as an amendment.

The problem is that there are too few Americans paying attention to what is being done to this country by the Democrats and left. Some never ever watch the news, and if they do it is news from MSM. Thank God I am old enough that I will not be alive when and if this nightmare actually kills the greatest nation of all time.

The head of the snake needs to be removed. Somebody like Sam Giancana back in 1962 said that of the Kennedys. Our government has been crap ever since. Why would an administration want all of these children coming into the country? Why would anyone who pays taxes go along with this man-made disaster? They are trying to take down our country from the inside. Wake the hell up they are even taking a handling fee for your stimulus! We all have to stop Biden now. How is it he can write in these laws without congress? Biden now has a bullseye on his forehead for all concerned citizens of the United States of America. It`s jail time and treason charges for the Biden administration.

DC is a cesspool and taxpayer drain. The Govt apparatus there has outgrown its real purpose. They are represented by the state’s around there, so the obvious solution is to dissolve the district and eliminate the drain, only leaving the bare bones.

I support D.C. statehood! Consider this fact, in order to serve in Congress / Senate a person(s) must reside in the State and or District they are elected to represent! Everyone one knows all the Democrats reside in D.C. so they’ll have to give up their seats and run against each other for D.C.’s 2 or 3 seats!

These liberal politicians could care less about the Constitution — they are ONLY interested in POWER. Note their preoccupation with CHANGING the Supreme Court. They are NOT interested in the Court at all — just a way to ALLOW them to change the U.S. into a socialistic form of government — “with them in charge”. Since the Constitution stands in their way, they “need” sympathetic justices who will do their bidding. President Trump appointed “conservative” justices who would honor the ‘intent’ of the Constitution — NOT use the court to make new laws !!!

If ever there was the proof that the Democrats want absolute power over the people of the United States, this is it! The Democrat Party is strongly anti American, and should be flushed down the sewer with all the other wanna-be dictatorial political factions that identify as Democrat. The modern Democrat Party has VERY little in common with the traditional American Democrat Party of the 1940s and 1950s. They should ALWAYS be referred to as the new American Socialist Party, since that is EXACTLY what they are.
