The Perversion of the United States Senate

The United States Senate has been perverted from the Founders’ original intent.

Madison wrote in Federalist 62:Another advantage accruing from this ingredient in the constitution of the senate is, the additional impediment it must prove against improper acts of legislation. No law or resolution can now be passed without the concurrence, first, of a majority of the people, and then, of a majority of the states.” Madison, as the Constitution’s primary author, designed the institution as a check on the People’s Legislature which is the House of Representatives.
