Epic facepalm moment from Dylan Matthews at Vox:
The problem is that the deck is stacked in favor of small states, which receive equal representation in the Senate despite dramatic variance in population. The Senate is a profoundly anti-democratic body and should be abolished.
Don’t they teach American history and civics anymore? I guess Dylan never heard of the Connecticut Compromise. During the Constitutional Convention of 1787 the smaller states were concerned that the new government would be dominated by the big states so a compromise was reached. The lower house of Congress would be proportional to the population but in the upper house all states would be equal.
But I guess those JuiceVoxxers are smarter than our Founding Fathers.
