The Constitution says no to DC statehood

The Constitution says no to DC statehood

The House of Representatives is poised to make a bit of history on Friday, when, with all-but-unanimous Democratic support, it is expected to approve a bill – H.R. 51 – that would make Washington, D.C., the nation’s 51st state. The House vote will be merely symbolic, since the bill isn’t going to be brought up in the Republican-controlled Senate.
