Brilliant blog, Dr. Chervinsky. I too went down this rabbit hole with a few folks. Ugh! In the middle of your magisterial book and Woody Holton’s brilliant book! Heaven!

I agree, and I believe the part that is clearly broken is in the House. The 1929 Permanent Apportionment Act. Means the 39m Californians vote in the House (& electoral college) means less.

The brilliance of the founders build (albeit flawed with misogyny and bigotry) is in that the balance of the out of control obstructive Senate is in the power of the House and President. If the president and House would continually push a popular agenda, eventually the Senate would flip if for no other reason than the citizenry being sick of the lack of action.
