D.C., under Congress's thumb
Regarding the Jan. 19 Local Digest item “New chairman for House D.C. panel”:
Good to see that things are getting back to normal for the District in its relations with Congress. First, the GOP disenfranchises the taxpaying Americans who reside in the federal city by removing their delegate’s vote on the House floor. Then it installs freshman Rep. Trey Gowdy, representing perhaps the most conservative district in (arguably) the most radically conservative state in the Union, South Carolina, to chair the subcommittee that oversees District matters.
Guess who gets to be the lab rat in the GOP-Tea Party political and social experiments for the next two years? The more things change, the more they stay the same.
