    Personally, I feel Washington D.C. & the 5 Island Territories (Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, & American Samoa) should be granted full statehood already. Being an American living in these 6 Territories is today's version of "No taxation without representation," since the people there are guaranteed citizenship at birth, pay taxes using U.S. currency, serve in the U.S. military, & can vote in the Primaires, but they can't vote for President (except for D.C.) nor do they have Congressmen that can vote on legislation. Plus, with statehood, the number of Representatives in Congress stays the same, its just there would now be 112 Senators & 423 in the House, with 12 Senators & about 9 members of the House representing these 6 new states.

    Hopefully it will hit Punta cana and get rid off the crooks down there.
