The Democrat House just absurdly passed a bill to make DC the 51st state:

U.S. House voted 216-208 to pass bill that would admit Washington DC as the 51st state and give it full representation in Congress.

Democrats are just doing this to increase their power and get more seats in the Senate. Which is ironic, because this doesn’t stand a chance of passing in the Senate. It will never overcome the filibuster and we have Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema to thank for not allowing Democrats to kill the filibuster.
