If it really bothered the Dems that much, they could always just cede DC back to Maryland, and the DC residents would have representation. The reason
DC was created in the first place was because in the early years of the country, the mayors of Philly & NYC would do stuff like arrest and harass
members of Congress they didn't like. The solution was to create an independent capital district that answers directly to Congress.
As it is, it's just an election-year political stunt, since they know it won't pass the Senate.
