Monday Rule: House of Repeal and Redaction
All the duties of the Senate ought to be given to the House of Representatives as the sole governing body in the US. I am tempted to scrap the whole Senate altogether, for it gives the states of Wyoming (pop. 563,000) and Vermont (pop. 625,000) the same number of votes as the states of California (pop. 37,253,000) and Texas (pop. 25,145,00). While I would like to see it just scrapped, since it’s already there, I figure I could just hand over the responsibilities of a new house of Congress I have in mind. We need a House of Repeal and Redaction, a legislative body which has no power to write new laws, but which has the ability to repeal old, redundant, or constitutionally invalidated laws from the books, and which may even have the power to consolidate and redact legislation to simplify our legal system.
