Yep. You heard that right.
Yet you think it deserves statehood, and equal footing with Texas, and two Senators? If population alone is the criteria, should we eliminate Wyoming and Vermont? Should Texans and Californians demand, that number of Senators be changed to by population basis as well and erode the protection of small states? As a Texas and California citizen we have only 1/5oth the representation in the Senate as Vermont and Wyoming, or a proposed DC state. So yea, I think I get a voice here. You think it's fair to ask 330 mm of the rest of us to give up our Constitutional protection of having our capital outside of another state? At 50x the voting power I and 50 mm other Americans have?
