After the 2nd use of the "Nuclear Option" it is now time to either write the filibuster into the Constitution as an Amendment OR to strike the Senate from the Constitution. As it is the Senate is now a waste of money, they no longer effectively represent their states & the Constitution before their party, the Senate is no longer a place for the Minority party to stand on the foundation principles of the nation & to hold in check the enthusiasms of the Majority party by demanding themselves be respected for as long as they can talk. Partisanship has destroyed what is arguably one of the most critical aspects of the success of our system of government. The Senate performed functions of each branch of the federal government, it was there as our nation's wise council, it has historically been filled with former governors many of whom would go on to be on their own state's supreme courts. It was designed to be the body through which the states gave their consent to be governed & it has been broken, now it is useless & for a useless body it's damned expensive, so let's get rid of the Senate & give the D.C. Rep a vote.
