My local TV news reported that the house voted to make DC the 51st state.
What are the pros and cons to this?

I believe they’d need to amend the constitution before it could be made a state.

Like the man said, this would give the Dims two more Liberal Senators.

The Founding Fathers would be appalled. The very reason that there IS a District of Columbia was that they didn't want the Federal Government to have any role in voting.

And exactly why it won't happen. The District was set up that way for a reason. Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17.
