Blame the Seventeenth Amendment

She has no concept of her role as a Senator, and simply wants to pander to the party line.

Once Senators were directly elected by the populace, common sense and ANY interest if protecting the interest of the states went right out the window. Our Founding Fathers set it up right - the House of Representatives represented the people and the Senators (appointed by the state Governors and Legislatures) represented the states.

Do you think we would have one-tenth of the idiotic mandates on the states if the Senators still represented the states? Do you think Obamacare or even No Child Left Behind would pass?
