This GOP Congressman Just DESTROYED Democrat’s Narrative that D.C. Residents Aren’t Represented

Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) destroyed the Democrat narrative for D.C. statehood on the House floor, arguing that it is unconstitutional and gives the incumbent President three free electoral votes as the law currently stands.

The current situation would add three free electoral votes PLUS more electoral votes for D.C. as a state. This would create an unfair advantage for Democrats in every election going forward since they are in power right now.

Washington D.C. does have representation. It has a delegate in the House members to fight for them. Of course, the left isn’t satisfied with this, and wants this to change because D.C. votes exclusively Democrat. Making it a state would virtually guarantee two new Democrat senators and at least two new House members, which means Democrats would have control of the Senate then.

 

But to work, D.C. would have to raise taxes as a state. Why? It is not self-sufficient. D.C. takes more money from the federal government than any other area in the nation.

That’s $73,000 per person. The next closest is Virginia at $16,000 per person.

Reschenthaler notes some of the only ways to offset this level of expense would be through charging tolls and raising taxes—both as huge levels to offset that level of funding.

The left doesn’t seem to mind the voting being unfair, of course. As long as the votes are to the advantage of Democrats, they are willing to be as unfair as necessary to make D.C. a state. Check out the facts and see why D.C. should not become the 51st star on the flag.

  1. Question? Just “What” does it say about this in the CONSTITUTION? And the REASONS WHY? End the B.S. social Communist and go back to the Basement of your Mother, that is IF You even know who she is!

  2. Biden swore to defend our Constitution, protect our borders and American citizens but has done nothing but spread hate and discontent and misery throughout our country.
    He listens to his keepers via the “hidden” earpiece that he is constantly adjusting while he squints at the monitor while taking orders from Communist Bernie & the mob. I hope his wealthy donors and Union members are proud of themselves for assisting this frail, dementia-addled old man in destroying our way of life.

    1. He will promise YOU the world but give YOU nothing!!…..Except fatten HIS wallet and the wallets of specific friends of his, this is why, “his wealthy donors and Union members, ARE PROUD OF THEMSELVES, for assisting this frail, dementia-addled old man in destroying our way of life”. If you will remember, it wasn’t that long ago, a certain Democrat t*rd with a “fro”, that was elected as “president”, by a massive number of individuals, like yourselves, did, in many ways, the same things and much much more, spent “trillions” of freshly printed, and borrowed money that we as the taxpayers knew we would, in the future have to pay back in taxes and all the Democrat t*rd with a “fro”, handed massive amounts of this money out as government loans to, so-called “Green Energy” companies, most of which were on the verge of bankruptcy. Not too soon afterward that these companies received their loans, they all collapsed. Where did all the loan money go??? Not one person in congress attempted to investigate where the money went, the Democrat t*rd with a “fro” ant lent the money or the persons that received the money. This and many other things that were committed by the Democrat Communist Party, left this country so divided, that many of us conservatives stated publicly, that our country would never recover. Well, here we are again…………Now its the EX- Vice President to the Democrat t*rd with a “fro” that is subjecting the country to the same filth that was committed before but now on a much grander scale. Don’t tell me any of you are surprised……….

    2. Both of the democratic offers for president and vice president are in the process of ruining this country ! THEY DON’T CARE !!! 27 trillion in debt and all they can think of is 2 more trillion to spend on stupid projects. WHAT ABOUT THE DEFICIT JOE, WHAT ME WORRY ??? NAH— NOT MY PROBLEM. WAKE UP JOE– IT IS YOUR PROBLEM!! DO YOUR JOB PUT PEOPLE BACK TO WORK!!
      PLEASE– WAKE UP AMERICA ,VOICE YOUR OPINION , GET OUR COUNTRY BACK!

    3. Well, if Americans started Standing up to these Traitors and became a Civil Militia, as is stated in the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution, March on Washington DC with the National Guard and Military standing with the People, as they should, because they both take an Oath to Protect and Serve the American People, to Protect the American People from, both, foreign and domestic enemies, Then America remove these Traitors from Our Government. This is going to have to be done, or the American people are just going to have to get used to being the SLAVES of the chinese communist party. It doesnt really matter which Communist party they are all the same.
      People, either Stand Up, or Perish as Americans, to be SLAVES to the democrat DICTATORS

  3. The GOP isn’t doing anything of value to upset this election. All they do, as a whole, is keep the chatter going without results. What the h**l is going on? They have plenty of evidence that Obama wasn’t qualified to be President, now they have enough proof that the Dems stole Georgia and Arizona along with a rig election on the White House. When are they going to fix this?

    1. They R not able to “do” anything since they R in the minority & do not have the votes to change things! They have to “chatter” to let the voters know what they should vote for & against! SPEAK UP REPUBLICANS! In fact they should speak louder & more often because the Democrats R destroying our freedoms!???

      1. Know what? I absolutely agree with you. With one exception. The GOP had the House and the Senate during Trump’s first two years yet didn’t have the resolve and energy to work with him. What they did was expose the true RINOS who were voted out next election (House). We are extremely fortunate that the Senate has the slimmest of margins to make it risky to try to legislate their most radical agenda items.

    2. Agreed. Time to proceed with criminal charges and imprison these corrupt Marxists for every crime they’ve committed against U.S.

  4. Historic times. Won’t it be interesting to see the first time a state was removed from the union? Hey DC, you’re a state. Oops, you’re not!
    Cannot wait to watch that fiasco. And we can thank good ol joe. Impeach 46!

  5. once again the democrats have put their foot in a pile of schiff. their eagerness to cheat their way into more power has created a whole new set of issues.

    Now if I were allowed to be governor of Washington DC the first thing I would do is declare all federal building in Washington dc to be on state land and start charging rent.

    Next i would issue state ID to all full time citizens of the state and then put in a 25% sales tax on non citizens and a 5% sales tax on citizens. show your ID 5% no ID 25%.

    Then I would put a 50% rental tax on non-citizen rentals and a service tax for restaurants, auto repairs, dry cleaners etc. for non-citizens.

    Doing this would allow me to keep the citizens cost low while fleecing the visitors and non -citizen government people.

    you want to make Washington DC a state you can pay for us to be a state.

  6. Agreed. Time to proceed with criminal charges and imprison these corrupt Marxists for every crime they’ve committed against U.S.

  7. This is why I don’t register to vote anymore. I won’t endorse a political party. One is as bad as the other. There is no “good” political party. Candidates should run on the own merit and let the voters decide who they want, not a party or big business. The parties tell the candidates what to say to persuade the people to vote for them, then they do something different after elected. The only honest politicians are in the cemetery. They’re dead, they can’t lie and steal anymore.

  8. Kind of hard for any government entity to charge any crimes because they too are part of the criminal action.
    Ask Amy C. Barrett that knew the institution from front to back and is not there for profit.
    After a couple of months she has for gotten what the Constitution is because she doesn’t have time she has received a $2,000,000.00
    Up front for her book.
    Dems don’t need to stack the court the last two Justices’ are RHINOS.
    So if charges were brought the Supreme Court would refuse to take the case.
    So what would be your next means to remove them?
