"We are a city that pays three-and-a-half billion dollars annually in federal taxes and raises $5.6 billion dollars in local taxes to support our city. Our great nation was founded on the fundamental principle of resistance to taxation without representation, yet we continue to endure that in the District of Columbia. So we ask you, please America, as we work to re-elect President Obama, work with us to bring justice and equality to the District of Columbia."

D.C. Mayor Vince Gray speaking at the Democratic National Convention, while pledging the capital’s 45 delegates to nominate President Barack Obama as the party’s presidential candidate.
