Obama’s Limo To Get D.C. ‘Taxation Without Representation’ Tags

Without Represenation" license plates, the White House confirmed to TPM Tuesday. The new plates will remain for the duration of Obama's second term.

“President Obama has lived in the District now for four years, and has seen first-hand how patently unfair it is for working families in D.C. to work hard, raise children and pay taxes, without having a vote in Congress," White House spokesman Keith Maley said in a statement. "Attaching these plates to the presidential vehicles demonstrates the President’s commitment to the principle of full representation for the people of the District of Columbia and his willingness to fight for voting rights, Home Rule and budget autonomy for the District.”

D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray thanked the president on Twitter.

1. Washington D.C. needs Congressional Representation

The fact that they don't have it is bullshit. More people live in D.C. than Vermont or Wyoming. Of course Republicans would likely oppose it because there are many African Americans that live in DC.
