Like all Americans, the 600,000 residents of the District of Columbia pay income taxes and serve their country in times of war. Teachers, doctors, veterans, military personnel, parents – all pay billions per year in federal income taxes.
Yet for more than 200 years, District residents have been denied voting representation in Congress, the very body that controls every aspect of the city's judicial, executive, and legislative functions. A bill is before Congress that would give DC residents their first-ever voting member in the House of Representatives, but it is being filibustered by a minority of Senators.
Time has come for Congress to end taxation without representation.
Tell Congress that you support bringing democracy to America’s Capital!
