We need to abolish the Senate anyways, and lift the 435 cap in the US House of Representatives. We should set the level to 1 representative for every 750,000 Americans.

That would give us fair representation. And we need to end the 'first past the post' system which keeps these two parties in charge and replace it with Proportional Representation. And create a Prime Minister position and take the powers away from the president and give them to the Parliament(House of Representatives).

No. I would have to say a firm "no thank you" to the British Model Seriously. No, No, No. No Prime Minister, No Parliament, leave that to the tea-sippers in Europe. Gross. England is in worse shape than we are when it comes to actual representative government. Yucky.

What would be nice is a total reversal of the 17th Amendment where your Senators come from your state and vote for the vested interest of your State and not the Federal Lobbies. That, to me, would be a much better idea.
