Retroceding DC back to Maryland would resolve your concerns about their lack of representation, and I suspect you could easily get bipartisan support for it. It does, however, deprive you of the chance to score two additional Dem Senators, so if its the power grab you're after, I guess you should keep fighting for DC statehood.
