    as it was intended these are the changes that I think should be made.

    Stop Gerrymandering.

    Each elected official in congress is supposed to represent his/her district not a party platform. There should not be a rule to prohibit an up or down vote if the result of that vote doesn't support the majority party's preferred outcome.

    Change the filibuster rule. It makes sense that the minority has a tool to extend debate before a vote is taken. But there should be a debate, and within a certain set period an up or down vote should be taken.

    Set federal rules for federal elections.

    Get money out of politics.
