House Approves Bill to make DC the 51st State

[Public Domain]

In a party-line vote, the House of Representatives has approved H.R. 1, the bill seeking to make D.C. the nation’s 51st state.

The Hill reports:

Winning a vote in the Senate would likely require ending the filibuster that requires most legislation to clear a 60-vote hurdle. Even then, not all 50 Democrats in the Senate back making D.C. a state.

The White House on Tuesday formally declared its support for the legislation, saying it would provide the residents of the District with “long overdue full representation in Congress.”

Republicans have opposed giving D.C. statehood, in part because it would lead to two more Democratic senators and a Democratic House member given the district population’s political leanings. President Biden won the District’s three electoral votes in last year’s election with 92 percent of the vote.

They have also offered other arguments against statehood, stating the founders didn’t intend for the city to be a state, or that it would be better for Washington, D.C., to become part of an existing state such as Maryland. One Republican lawmaker said D.C. should not be a state because it has no car dealerships. The District actually has a number of dealerships.

The bill will now advance to the Senate where it has an uphill road ahead with an evenly divided Senate and with Dem. Senators Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema have already voiced their opposition to the bill.

Why not square it off and add it to a state as a county? Oh they want the two Senators.

The House will pass ANYTHING that the Democrat “leadership” says it should. There isn’t an independent thinker among the Democrat members of the House. If there were, there would be some disagreement on such a notorious bill.

And you believe him? Just curious?
They have him by the cajones for whatever reason. He’s from a solid RED state who overwhelmingly voted for President Trump.
If he really was a man of honor he would of already left this crazy party he’s a member of.
Certainly he can clearly see where the party is going? Wonder if he thinks his constituents agree with him, or if he just doesn’t care?
If anyone here from WV, would love your input.

How sad to go against our Constitution and power grab and not think of we the people. Maybe it is time to have a vote to get rid of Congress altogether and come up with a better plan because it was to be for “we the people”, follow the Constitution, follow God, and do justice for us. They no long follow the law of the land, make their own laws like they are gods and forget who is our Lord except using His name in vane. They are destroying any symbols that may depict our history and progress over 200 years, rewrite history with lies, brainwash children with lies. If they are so successful with doing that inch by inch the last they will try to destroy God and anyone who looks to Him. We all have improvements to make but when radicals see evil as good then where are we going?

Don’t worry, God knows what He is doing. In 2008 the DEMs won both Houses and the White House (and I do believe they had a majority for the Supreme Court. They pulled the same crappo they are doing today. In 2010 they lost both Houses which curbed Obama and Pelosi.

We have GOT to win the House back in 2022! Nancy has totally lost it with these crazy bills: DC Statehood, HR1, the (in)Equality Act. Just to name a few. And we all know gun legislation is coming next. I think she is thinking that they will never have another chance to ram through their wish list. And even though they know they shouldn’t, they are doing it anyway. Is there not one sane Democrat in the House? I mean, I know that some are totally left wing and have lost their minds, but where are the Democrats from Red States? Like my State of MO, we have 2 Dems. One reps St. Louis, which is heavily Democrat, like D+29. But the other is KC and it is only slightly Democrat, like D+7. SO on some of this stuff, he should be voting against it! I don’t know, but we have GOT TO PUT A STOP TO these bills!

Then we should split NY into 2 states as well as California. Most of NY and Calif are red. It is just the cities that are blue. That would dilute NYC from taking all the votes in an election. Good for the goose? NY and Cal would not take all electors anymore.

I am from California and like your idea. I have NO representation in the State or Federal governments. I refuse ask a braying jackazz Democrat for anything. Maybe the recall of Newsom will work. One good thing Democrats are leaving the state in droves. We might turn Red again.

When is Lindell going to get that voting fraud issue rectified. The Supreme Court are responsible for not looking at the evidence. Dominion should be forced to show the Forensic Data, but most likely won’t. Biden never won US President and this whole thing is a Socialist Sham.

Actually some of the voting machine were tampered with so that the changes were not recorded. They took the seal off so the machines were tampered and evidence was destroyed. They wasted all the time denying evidence existed, so they had time to make the evidence disappear! Amazing that they allowed the tampered machines to still be certified.

Insanity and depraved mind are the result of rejecting God. Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they would do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed, and depravity. Romans 1:28. This behavior will only get worse.

Do you get the feeling that democrats will do anything to steal the power away from the people? A 51st state sounds like it’s going to cost the taxpayer a lot of money and clinche the democrat power play for the next 100 years.

Democrats are obviously brain-dead: short-sighted, power-hungry. David Horowitz has the Left figured out: they are driven mad by a lust for power, will do anything immoral or illegal to get it; yet once they get it, they have no earthly idea how to wield it. So it begins: disillusionment: why is our great 5-year plan not working? Search for the guilty, punishment of the innocent. It happened in the Soviet Union and in Eastern Europe. Millions perished as ‘enemies of the State.’
