And Dems should channel GOP talking points from when that Party added four states
By 2040, 50% of America will live in 8 democratically-controlled states and only be represented by 16 out of 100 US Senators, creating an unbeatable majority for the GOP.
During the Civil War Abraham Lincoln & the GOP added Nevada, for purely partisan reasons, when it didn’t qualify as a state. They did it again with Colorado and both Dakotas, just to add Republicans to the Senate.
Adding Washington DC and Puerto Rico as states will not only help the senate reflect who America is, but also gives representation to Americans who currently have no voice.
With a balanced Senate, impeachment, Medicare For All, the end of student debt and a Green New Deal would all be done.
