The Senate is an anachronism, in that it is the most undemocratic institution in the U.S. federal government. With two senators from every state, from the smallest to the largest, it doesn’t represent people, it represents real estate.

In another example of its increasing fatal relationship with our democracy, the jobs bill passed last night, 50 to 49, but lost because the Senate, in its arcane rules, requires 60 votes for an issue to pass. Thus, the U.S. Senate voted against jobs for Americans. Not a single Republican voted for the jobs bill. They ate American jobs for dinner.

If we had an election for the Senate today, wonder how the American electorate would vote? See the Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/the-senates-epic-fails/2011/10/11/gIQAl15cfL_story.html
