DC was never intended to be a residential community

And that's why they have no voting representation in Congress per the Constitution. But, it is a residential community now and they should have representation. Republicans fight this because DC is a democrat stronghold due to the number of poor minorities that make up the majority of the city's population. The DC city council lobbied the White House to do this, and they obliged. It's just patronization for DC's citizens.
