Senate Republicans deny Congressional representation for District of Columbia...
Senate GOP'ers are officially addicted to the filibuster. This time, they've used it to disenfranchise voters in our nation's capital.
This story pissed me off even before I read this bit of information about D.C.'s lack of a voice in Congress:
The city has been denied voting rights in Congress since 1801, making it the only major capital city in the world where citizens are denied a vote in the nation's representative body of government.Stunning.
Makes you wonder if the residents of Baghdad have representation in the Iraqi Parliament...
