Washington D.C. to no longer have Federal taxes?

A bill, H.R.1014, if passed, would allow residents of Washington D.C. to not have to pay any federal income tax.

I am not sure what this is... I think it may be some sort of statement by the Republicans that introduced it. What they are trying to say, I don't know. Perhaps they are trying to start a tax revolt.

I don't get it...

Right there with you. What is the point of this legislation?

The only thing I can figure is to waste time during session. (snerk) No way it'll pass...

Exactly. So that still leaves the question: what is the point? What statement are they trying to make?

From what I heard, some people are claiming "taxation without representation" because they vote in primaries but not the Presidential election. It seems to slip their mind that they are represented, though, by a delegate in the House of Representatives.
