I'm beginning to agree with this point of view and think Americans should repeal the 17th Amendment. The elimination of territory-only, non-proportional representation in _state_ senates solved the worst of the pre-#17 corruption; the other pre-#17 corruption in the election of and influences over Senators seems no worse than what has been taking place since #17. Also, of the top of my head I cannot point out any improvements in policy that #17 has either sped up, slowed down or completely prevented. Anyone?
