...and the South and West pick up more seats in Congress, along with Washington

Because of high population growth. It wouldn't be something that has a lot of impact on the country except for the fact that the Senate is widely undemocratic and favors the points of view of small, conservative, states in a way that's completely disproportionate to the rest of the country. I've ranted on this before, but in the Senate we have a situation where a state whose entire population wouldn't fill up a single borough of New York City has the same power as the entire state of New York.
