This bill is a waste of everone's time and needs to die

Real change in the system can only happen after the 17th Amendment is repealed. We have had direct election of Senators by popular vote for near 100 years, to solve the "issue" of the occasional deadlocked state legislature. Notice that this is when a lot of the crap we're up against really took root.

The president is only one person, what about the other 100 that are responsible for passing laws to that president to sign? This bill only distracts from the real issue.

Return real sovereignty to the States in the Senate. Restore this important check & balance so our Constitutional Republic can once again function as it was designed.
