Obama's limo to soon don DC's 'Taxation Without Representation' license plate

Washington, Jan. 16 (ANI): The White House has said President Barack Obama's limousine will soon carry the District of Columbia's 'Taxation Without Representation' license plate.

The White House said that Obama has lived in D.C. for four years and has seen how patently unfair it is for families to work hard, raise children and pay taxes, without having a vote in Congress.

According to Fox News, the White House said that Obama's official vehicles will begin using the symbolic license plates during the inauguration this weekend.

Former President Bill Clinton also made the symbolic gesture by putting the tags on his limousine.

Local activists and city officials have asked Obama to support efforts to give the district representation in Congress and more control over its budget, the report added. (ANI)
