DC Bill Is Dead

Washington D.C. doesn't get a full voting member of Congress and Utah has to wait until 2012 for it's new seat.

I don't think this is a racist issue, as Washington D.C. didn't have voting rights even when it was a white-majority city.

Still, if it is unconstitutional, then an amendment needs to be passed. Why?

The city has been denied voting rights in Congress since 1801, making it the only major capital city in the world where citizens are denied a vote in the nation’s representative body of government.

And that's just Un-American if you ask me.
