i never expected to say this but: thanks orrin!!!! orrin hatch, republican senator from utah, is co-sponsoring a senate bill to give dc a seat in the house of representatives. the opposition to our being taxed WITH representation comes from republicans who fear that giving the democratic leaning district a vote will make it more difficult for them to have a majority. so much for principal. this bill, close to the one that recently passed the house, gives utah a new house seat and the district a seat. counterpoise. so it is win, win, win as michael scott would say.
so if you live somewhere other than the district and have a senator you can call (this is a phone list if you need his/her number). please do so and ask them to support the district getting the right to vote. lets end taxation without representation in america.
