White House Suddenly Remembers Existence of Constitution
Apparently struck with terror at the prospect of several hundred thousand mostly nonwhite and/or nonheterosexual taxpayers in the District of Columbia obtaining a voting Representative in Congress, Geoge Bush announced his intention to veto the legislation that is the result of a bipartisan compromise. The pending bill would increase the number of seats in the House of Representatives by two. Utah, next in line for a new House seat according to the 2000 census, would get the other seat. It seems the Constitution says something about only the people "of the several states" electing Congress.
