Right. It’s not like we already have a chamber in Congress whose representatives are apportioned by population. It’s fascinating how the ones always screaming about how the Republicans are a threat to our Democracy are the first ones ready to shred the Constitution every time they lose an argument.
The collapse of Democrats’ social welfare bill at the hands of Sen. Joe Manchin III has renewed the call by some liberals for abolishing the Senate‘s constitutional design of two votes per state and replacing it with something more like the House, where more populous states have greater influence. Sherrilyn Ifill, president of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, said a “healthy democracy” shouldn’t be “structured in a way that can allow one man elected by 290,000 voters in one of the least populous states to thwart the agenda of his party and the President who was elected with 81 million votes.” “We need structural change,” she said in a post on Twitter. “We are in crisis [because] too many structural flaws can be exploited.”Liberals irked by Manchin call for new Senate apportioned by population – Washington Times
