Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

A seat in the House for D.C.?
A bill is being reintroduced to give the District of Columbia a seat in the House of Representatives. Currently DC residents have absolutely no representation on a national level. That's 563,000 people - just 56,000 people less than Vermont (which has 2 senators and 1 rep), and 62,000 more than Wyoming.
Isn't this a no-brainer? Can anyone give a reason why these people shouldn't be represented?
