Senator Mitch McConnell, wholly loved and supported by liberals with a tinge of awe, opposes Senate Bill 1257. The legislation was developed with bipartisan support and would provide Washington, D.C. a voting seat in the House of Representatives.
Sources say McConnell wants to filibuster in order to block passage.
Race is the only reason D.C. has been denied congressional representation for 175 years. We wonder if the 650,000+ African Americans inside the capital have anything to do with Mitch’s opposition.
Is this 1910? What the flip century is this?
