(TheConservativeNews.org) – Recently, the prevailing policy objective of the far left-wing of the Democratic party has been to make Washington, DC a state. The Washington, DC Admission Act, also known as H.R. 51, passed the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives last week. However, it appears the legislation will face a much more difficult test in the Senate.

On Friday, April 30, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) told a state radio station that he’s against the bill. He stated any attempt to make DC a state should take the form of a constitutional amendment, rather than an ordinary bill. 

With the Senate split 50/50, passing this legislation was always going to be a tall order for Democrats. Manchin’s opposition could be the last nail in its coffin.

Manchin has repeatedly shown he’s unafraid to dismiss the radical elements of his party to protect the interests of his voters. If there were more moderate Democrats like him, perhaps we would see fewer exhausting partisan gridlocks in Congress.
