Very disappointed that the bulk of this conversation was about the political calculations involved in making DC a state and less about the gross injustice of taxing the residents of DC while denying them a vote! This is the very reason we declared independence and went to was with Britain. What is wrong with these people?!

Andrew Dias Bud, are you okay? You do know that they vote, yes? That they have electoral college representatives? They literally start the episode by stating that their representatives vote on some floor issues and vote in committee.
