Cannon House Office Building

(202)225-3012

 

H.R. 5388, The "District of Columbia Voting Rights Act of 2006:

 

Dear Congressman Chabot:

 

Before the United States Congress gives the District of Columbia a vote or statehood, it should give such to America Somoa, Guam, Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands based upon its agreements made with them which it never made with the District of Columbia.

 

The District of Columbia was never meant to be a state, have a congressional vote but the other U.S. possessions were in that, they were promised consideration of such when entering into alliances to the United States.

 

The District of Columbia does not deserve a Congressional vote or statehood nor should it be given such and when people moved here,they knew this and need to move elsewhere if they want such rights.

 

Respectfully,

 

Jonathan R. Rees.

I have not lived in the District that long, but I don't understand why you would not want to give people a right to vote.

Natalia1974,

 

The answer is simple. When Congress created DC as a federal enclave, it made it clear that it was a city for people to come and work, it would not be a place treated like a state or territory and thus we all knew before we came here of the peril.

 

Even if we had a vote it would be cancelled out by special interest groups.

 

I have not lived in the District that long, but I don't understand why you would not want to give people a right to vote.
