FYI, it does not take a constitutional amendment for DC to gain statehood. How do we know? Because no other state added to this country has required a constitutional amendment. That's 37 states added and zero constitutional amendments needed. #DCStatehoodNow
The question of DC statehood should not be about the partisan consequence of granting statehood, but about the democratic consequence of denying it. #DCStatehoodNow
The Constitution is not an argument against federal legislation for DC statehood. Instead, a const. amend. is being used as a red herring, not unlike how claims of bipartisanship are being used as a red herring to argue against reforming the filibuster. Enough. #DCStatehoodNow
