You forgot DC. The real motto on our license plates fits this set: "Taxation Without Representation."

Sorry, I was unaware that DC had achieved statehood.

How about: "We can't afford to live in VA or MD"

You are correct on the statehood issue but you have it backwards on the "afford to live in." People move out to the burbs to find more affordable housing.
