U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Capitol Hill Democrats are rushing to give the District of Columbia statehood, a crusade that has been going on for at least three decades and which critics insist is nothing more than a raw power grab.
On Thursday, the House voted 216-208 to pass H.R. 51. Prior to the vote, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy stated, “The Democrats’ D.C. statehood scheme is about two things: consolidating power and enacting radical policies. The American people see right through this blatant power grab.”
Appearing on Fox News, Congressman James Comer (R-KY), ranking member on the House Oversight and Reform Committee, noted, “They (the District) shouldn’t be a state because our Founding Fathers made it clear they wanted the capitol city to be independent of any state.”
