With the loss of any conservative control in any branch of government, the left is set to stack the deck even more. The mayor of DC stated a few days ago that she fully expects DC statehood within the first 100 days of the Joe & ho administration.
This would permanently give the Dems two more seats in the senate and one rep in the house. So even the 50/50 tie in the senate with the need for the ho as tie breaker would be lost. Along with a diminished hope of flipping enough seats in 2022. Add to that the fact that too many republicans are useless as well.
The biggest argument for DC statehood is the residential population of the district not having representation or a vote.
In my opinion the best solution for this to have the residential portions (the land they sit on) given back to Maryland. Given the politics of Maryland they may not want it back.
So the argument is tough.
Also know that regardless if this passes or fails there will again be a push for statehood for Puerto Rico as well.
So my point here is again, write, email or call your respective senators and representatives to stop this.
As bad as 2020 was 2021 is getting really ugly really fast.
