Fwd: Washington D.C. Voting Rights

Hey, I just sent an email to Rep. William D. Delahunt (D-Mass 10th district) about the upcoming vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on H.R. 157 which is described as "To provide for the treatment of the District of Columbia as a Congressional district for purposes of representation in the House of Representatives, and for other purposes. "

Here is the email I received back from confirming the email was sent. Edited for security.

Hi, This is a really simple message, but a very important one.

I understand that the House will soon to discussing giving Washington D.C.
a real representative on Congress with voting rights.

Now, I'm not really from DC, but I was born in a hospital there and I have
friends there. But that's besides the point. I am an American and
believe strongly that every American should have REAL representation in
congress. It is especially against everything America stands for to tax
Washington D.C. residents without giving them proper representation. This
issue is Exactly why this country was formed in the first place! Every
citizen should have a real role to play in the legislature, and if they
don't have voting representation in the legislature then they have no real
ability to pay a role and no real way to get their interests out on the

This is not just a Washington D.C. issue. This is an American issue. I
know that D.C. is mostly full of Democrats like yourself, and honestly I
don't want any more fiscal statists like yourself in congress. However,
what is more important is that the people of Washington D.C. have a voice.
I don't care if they elect a bonafide Communist, as long as they have a
voice, for it is not my right or anyone else to deny them representation
no matter who they chuse to represent themselves.

It is just plain morally reprehensible to tax people without giving them
representation to help decide what taxes should be levied (if any at all),
how much taxes should be, and how such collected tax money should be used.

I really hope you can support bringing liberty and power the people of
Washington D.C.

If you wish to contact me, please send me an email. I am currently
residing in Norway and will not be able to promptly respond to any
reconnaissance sent to my Massachusetts address.
