I think people electing Senators is a horrible idea. The House is supposed to represent the people, and the Senate is supposed to represent the states. By eliminating the power of the states in the senate, all we've effectively done is hand it over to billionaires. It no longer represents the states or the people.

The 17th amendment backfired. It's been a net loss. It was a terrible and short-sighted idea to begin with, and only gets worse as each year passes.
