    • On April 25, 2009, by mrlargo - I agree. It is the seat of the government, not a state and there for not represented. Having a district for the government to operate from is listed as a power of congress. For the government to represent itself for itself within the district would be unconstitutional.

    • On April 29, 2009, by mattbman - If it were only a seat of government and it's entire function was related to government, I would agree, however there are people who live in the district, and I feel it would be appropriate to represent them in the Congress, as most of them are directly or indirectly supporting the federal offices in the district.
