Should DC Get a Vote in the House?

The issue of Washington DC not having a vote in the House of Representatives is once again being debated on Capital Hill. The twist this time is that, if passed, the bill giving the District a vote would also create a new seat in the House that would temporarily be given to Utah (until 2010). The logic is that a DC seat would vote Democrat and a Utah seat would vote Republican, thereby not altering the balance of power between the two parties.

Unless I am mistaken, it would take a constitutional amendment to give a vote to DC, not an act of congress.
