Voting is a bit of a touchy subject in DC, which is why the motto on our car tags reads "Taxation Without Representation." The Constitution only guarantees Congressional privileges to the states, but DC isn't a state. Therefore, we have no senator or representative. Eleanor Holmes Norton is DC's "Delegate to Congress." She can vote on procedural matters and committee votes, but not on the actual House floor votes. And, despite the fact that we pay taxes to the city--the highest per capita tax bracket in the United States--our city budget is completely at the mercy of Congress. Remember the looming federal shutdown a few months ago? We weren't even going to have garbage pickup. And you thought your hometown was buried in bureaucracy.
