Do you think we change how we structure representation in the US House and or Senate
What do you think – Should we change how we structure representation in the US House and/or Senate?
1) The original US Constitution states in Article I, Section 8 that “the Number of Representatives shall not exceed one for every thirty Thousand,” but that has long been changed as the size of the total US population has changed. The House of Representatives has (essentially) been capped at 435 since 1929, so the number of constituents each House member represents continues to climb. The number of senators per state has stayed the same, with 2 senators representing each state regardless of the state’s population.
Be sure to bring in specific supporting examples from our work on Congress (the activity materials and the OpenStax reading) to explain your response.
