Hutchison to go imperial on dc's ass

Time to share a pet peeve here, folks. As a DC resident it makes my blood boil when elected representatives from other states use my city as a testing ground for their policy ideas.

Feinstein did it a couple of years ago with her lame school voucher idea, and now Kay Bailey Hutchison is joining the bandwagon. The Senator has introduced legislation to repeal the city's gun ban. Say what you will about gun rights and modern interpretations of the second amendment, that's not at issue here. What is at issue is the fact that I did not vote for Senator Hutchison and yet I get the benefit of her splendid new regulations. Such imperialistic actions are tightening Republican control over liberal DC and only serving to remind us that our own elected representatives have no power when it comes to voting on issues in Congress.
