Our House of Lords

Read this article from the Washington Post about how the Senate became the place where progress goes to die.

For me, the key thing is that over time the Senate has structured and conducted itself in a deliberate manner to increase its power to accomplish its policy goals.  If Senators were really interested in getting something done, they would find ways to change their structure and conduct accordingly.
