The House of Un-Representatives

June 1954
New Republic;6/21/54, Vol. 130 Issue 25, p8
This article focuses on the U.S. politics and government. Millions of dollars and millions of words will be poured out to determine what party will control U.S. Congress. Yet the party with most votes in the Congressional contests may not be the party with a majority of representatives. Who controls Congress may not be decided by the electorate but by unrepresentative state legislatures. There is a proposal currently before the Massachusetts legislature to increase the Republican delegation to U.S. Congress by two and to decrease the Democratic delegation by the same number.
