Schumer Wants D.C. Statehood Power Grab

This from Cornelius Carroll

Chuck Schumer said D.C. statehood is a "top priority" should his party gain control of the Senate, which would hand the overwhelmingly Democratic city two seats in the chamber Schumer would be in charge of.

Top Dem Senate Challengers Silent on Schumer's Push for D.C. Statehood

A word from Tim:

McConnell ought to offer to fold D.C. into Maryland and see what Schumer's reaction would be. It would be a good tool to use against the Democrats on this issue, because they will become quite indignant when the offer is made. It would be proof this is just a power grab.

Sadly, Mitch isn't that swift.

D.C. was supposed to be outside of the political territory of the United States, a truly non-partisan town not subject to political pressures from the big states. It was not really supposed to have a large permanent population. It certainly was not supposed to become a stronghold for one political party who treated the other like an unwanted guest. That is the reality of D.C. today. Frankly, the city ought to be reduced in size to the mall area and run entirely by the Federal government. The rest should be given to Maryland and Virginia. Or it ought to be forcibly vacated and salt sewn in the Earth (my particular favorite). But statehood is absolutely out of the question; it doesn't have enough people, and it is hopelessly corrupt.
