An open letter to the U.S. Congress

No More Taxation Without Representation!

133 so far! Let’s get to 250 signers!

Today, the 700,000+ residents of Washington, DC are treated as second-class citizens. District residents pay more in federal income taxes per capita and collectively pay more than $3B in federal taxes each year. This is higher than taxes paid in 12 other states! Additionally, more than 200,000 brave men and women from Washington, DC have served in the United States Armed Forces defending, fighting and 2,000 have died for our beloved country. Yet, these brave men and women had no voting representation in Congress and lacked the form of democracy at home that they fought and died for abroad. We believe this to be a true denial of democracy to the residents of Washington, DC, and all citizens of the United States of America. This injustice must end.
