Two in the Hand
The Senate is supposed to be the States’ check on the Federal Government. Surprise: it is not even close!
In order to balance power in the Senate, each State and Territory should receive a set of Senators in relation to their population and another set in relation to the amount of land they control.
The Senate should increase in membership while the House of Representatives should shrink.
All members of Congress should be elected on 4-year cycles that expire in the middle of Presidential terms, resulting in country-wide federal elections every 2 years.
