Joseph is sort of right....it'd be more accurate to say the states could block this very easily. Some of the things that'd need to be done off the top of my head:

-Change 50 state constitutions (this means the legislatures AND the people would all have to agree to the plan, which would never happen)

-Get Dems and Reps to work together at the states level (because surely one party will get a boost and one party will not, so this would never happen)

-The federal legislature would have to go thru the statehood process for the new state (you expect them to vote themselves out of a job?)

-I think the President would have to sign off on it in the end (now he's gonna have to deal with more powerful states, and loose the whole divide and conquer strategy the feds likes to do with the states occasionally)

In effect, the plan threatens all the power brokers as well as the common voter. Its not gonna go far.
