That's how our Founders saw it. The Senate was supposed to represent the States in Congress. Now the States have no voice. The Texas Legislature is spending lots of time lately trying to nullify Federal Government Overreach. That is wasted time that could have been eliminated if the States actually had a voice in what bills made it to the President's desk for signature. Unfortunately, the 17th amendment eliminated that protection.
