White House Opposes D.C. Vote

WaPo reported The White House declared its opposition yesterday to a bill that would give the District its first full seat in the House of Representatives, saying it is unconstitutional, and a key Senate supporter said such concerns could kill the measure. "The Constitution specifies that only 'the people of the several states' elect representatives to the House," said White House spokesman Alex Conant. "And D.C. is not a state."

Precise;y. DC should only be the land where people work. With the exception of the White House the land where people live should be given back to Virfinia or Maryland, whichever turned it over to become a part of DC
