The House approved a measure to make Washington, D.C. the fifty-first state on Friday, marking the first time a D.C. statehood proposal has passed in either chamber of Congress. The legislation passed 232 to 180, with only one Democrat joining Republicans to vote against it.

The legislation, titled H.R. 51, would create the State of Washington, Douglass Commonwealth, named after Frederick Douglass. The district has a population of over 700,000 people, larger than the populations of Wyoming and Vermont. D.C. residents have no voting representation in Congress. Eleanor Holmes Norton represents D.C. in Congress as a non-voting delegate.

It will never pass the Senate. I'm pretty sure DC would be blue so they won't go for it.

This can never happen- - it will make the flag look too weird.

Seems abou time a bunch of Washingtonians disguised as Virginians throwing US senators into the Potomac River shouting "no taxation without representation!" and starting a revolution against the oppressive government.

They won't call it the Tea Party.
