The entire premise behind having the "District of Columbia" is, has been and will always be a valid one. That no one state can make claim to being the seat of power of these great United States.. That has not changed...
While there are tons of people that call DC "home", many are transient and retain residence elsewhere. That being said, when one moves to DC for a job or other reason, do they not also accept the Constitutional situation as it is? I don't imagine the individuals living in the "Inner City" care one whit about the issues you raise and the others.. Well they can always move..
It has been this way since the founding of DC and now people are not satisfied?

I see no other idea but for District of Columbia to declare independence because of that.
