Eleanor #DCStatehood Holmes Norton Aug 12
The House passed our bill on June 26. The Senate has not yet acted. Our 705,000+ federal taxpaying residents deserve equal congressional voting rights and full local self-government. Retweet if you agree DC needs statehood now.

Using whatever means available, I’ll keep getting fighting for DC home rule and equality until Senate passage of my bill gives DC the same authority and treatment as states.

DC is home to some of the most hard-working and dedicated people I have ever known, but besides that-the people of DC deserve to have because we pay federal taxes and are entitled equal representation in Congress.

Last year, we traveled the country asking presidential candidates to support making D.C. the 51st state with 51 votes in the Senate. We’re so happy to have on our side!

DC has nearly 120% of the population of Wyoming, so it should have at least 100% of the number of senators. Fight me.

We’re here with & to set the record straight. Senate Republicans say D.C. doesn't deserve statehood because we’re not “well-rounded” hardworking people. We’re teachers, nurses, students, and more. and we deserve :

Anyone who suggests Washington, D.C. isn't the home of honest, hard working Americans simply has no idea what he or she is talking about. Here's just one example of why I am proud to be a Washingtonian!

Maybe we should think about what’s the right thing to do (giving US citizens the right to representation) and not worry about politicizing this issue. statehood.

So what’s the down side?!! Seriously, this is just broadcasting that you belong to a party that doesn’t care about people of color. Crazy idea: you could try backing policies that the US citizens in DC and PR support?

I'm a 23-year DC resident. I own a small biz, tutor reading in a local public school, volunteer regularly at the food bank & with my neighborhood civic association. I love the DCPL & Fringe Fest & our local live music scene. I deserve equal representation!
