Description

A bill to give DC a full voting member of Congress (ending Taxation without Representation), will also give Utah one more Congressman. Adding the two new Congressman will avoid tie votes in the House, by likely adding a Democrat from DC and a Republican from Utah. The net result would be one more electoral vote, which is almost 100% sure to be Republican. It will also end the theoretical outcome of a tie in the Electoral College.
