    democracy.  The House was.  The Senate was designed to be representative of the States.  That's why there are two Houses.   That's why Wyoming has the same number of Senators as California.  The Senate does not represent the individual people as the House does.  The Senate represents each state.  That's how it was designed in 1789.

    And let me know if you think there is any shot of getting rid of the filibuster any time soon.  Not. Gonna. Happen.  Has about as much chance as passing tax increases on the rich without a deal or bargain.
