The Hill is reporting:

Florida Rep. Allen West (R) said he’s unsure whether the District of Columbia should be a state, but suggested its residents be excluded from paying federal taxes.

“If you live in the District, perhaps an exclusionary zone should be set up where District residents do not pay federal taxes,” he added.

I think we may have discussed this once before – but I’ll ask again – would you trade representation in Congress if you didn’t have to pay federal taxes?
