Washington D.C. Votes Matter!
200 years later and D.C. residents still do not have a vote
"No Taxation Without Representation"
"No taxation without representation" is a slogan that was used mainly during the 1750's and 1760's that summarized how the colonist felt when they were getting unfairly taxed by the King of Britain. Today the residents who live in D.C. have no vote in Congress, but they have federal taxes to pay.
