    Countries that have only “one house” instead of 2 or 3, are more flexible towards new threats/changes, while the USA with its 3 (house, senate, president) is very good to keep status que.

    The fact that states such as Wyoming (population 578k) get the same amount of representation as my home state of Illinois (population 12.7 million) is absurd. If we were a true Democracy the Senate would not exist.

    I’m extremely discouraged by this interview. I LOVE Sen. Warren & voted for her in primary! But the message here was: “We can’t change voting rights; Republicans are doing everything they can to screw democracy & it’s working. So let’s vote them out!” HOW???

    As long as radically different sized populations of Wyoming and California get the same number of senators, the Senate has little to do with representative democracy.

    She ignored the question couldn’t even imagine getting rid or why some people want it gone. Abolish the senate!

    Sen. Sinema can now just pivot and say she has reconsidered based on the facts and these arguments. She will then be forgiven.

    Right, the Senate needs to get out of the way of good legislation (Remove the filibuster) and have every legislator have to go live on TV and the net when there is a vote to explain why they are voting yes or no on a bill and have what is in every bill listed on the screen next to them while they talk!

    Senate was designed to slow things down and prevent mob rule. It’s genius even when some can’t steam roll it.
