    This is long overdue. This is America!s front porch for Americans and visitors from all over the globe. It's a sin that Congress has allowed the city/state of D.C. to become a blite on our reputation as the wealthiest most power nation in the world. For goodness sake! If Maryland is willing allow them to absorb D.C. and get crime and poverty under control. Rebuild its beauty to what Jefferson designed originally. Make it a showcase for American ingenuity, freedom and faith. Surely it will then make us proud and everyone will want to ship, live and work there. The history is so amazing. This alone will be a draw for capitalists and property owners to invest and thrive. CONGRESS must vote in favor for the good of all.

    This seems like a great idea as long as the people of D.C. are in favor of it.

    If the people of D.C. Would like to join I'm all for it. However; They deserve their own statehood. The days of taxation without representation need to go! Love you D.C.!
