StateHood from the D.C.

Washington D.C. Statehood has a topic of and if it should be a granted statehood, and in my part, I suggest that it shouldn’t because its Og and it should remain the same, instead of changing it up. Plus, I read that Maryland does not give permission so therefore I suggest that they should not be in the pros for changing it up even though there is a reason too, but it does not really change things up no matter what. Like in the 23 Amendment, the Washington state cannot be turned into a new state, it will also violate the amendment. In Conclusion, I think D.C. Should not be a statehood because it’s going to change things up but for no reason, just people going back at each other with opinions.

Hi Rene, you make some really valid points. Why would making Washington D.C. a state be so controversial? Can you think of any ways this could change things like the presidential elections?
