Dems to Get an Extra House Seat via DC?

Democrats are trying to get a permanent 1 seat advantage by allowing DC to get a vote in the House and an elector for presidential elections. Never mind that it's unconstitutional. And they are going to attempt to placate a few GOP members by offering Utah an "extra seat" (never mind that Utah is going to get an extra seat in 2010 anyway because of its population growth).

Hopefully the GOP doesn't fall for it.

PS - I saw in one article that DC residents proudly display the license plate "No Taxation without Representation." The truth is that drivers have to pay extra for a plate that doesn't have that tagline.
