DC Autonomy: Is it Constitutional?

There is a move afoot in Washington DC to give the city autonomy of over its finances. While this may sound good on the surface, there are unintendend consequences, and it may not be constitutional. As a federal district, the District of Columbia is funded solely by federal tax dollars.Dean Clancy, FreedomWorks Vice President, says,
