It would be 'the only state without an airport, without a car dealership, without a capital city, without a landfill,' said Rep. Jody Hice.

House Democrats are moving forward with legislation that would make Washington, D.C., the 51st state in the nation and Republicans are mad.

.............D.C. shouldn't be a state because it doesn't have manufacturing, mines, or agriculture.

Rep. Glenn Grothman of Wisconsin said Washington couldn't be a state because its main industry is tourism and retail, not farming and mining.

"I was taught manufacturing was so important for creating wealth of the country in a way that retail or tourism is not. Can you tell me about the manufacturing or agriculture or mining in your district? I am not aware of virtually any of that in your city," Grothman asked Bowser.

Bowser responded, "There may be states that rely on manufacturing, and I would argue that their economies aren't as good as ours."

1. However, i bet manufacturing isn't so important that thus guy supports a living wage.

Bet hes okay with US entities manufacturing their products in other countries, rather than providing union jobs here.
