A nuclear option for the Democrats
Mark A. R. Kleiman: "Here's a modest proposal: instead of just whining about the Republicans' unprincipled power grabs, the Democrats should retaliate.
Fortunately, we have an excellent opportunity: change the California Constitution to elect the entire California Congressional Delegation as a bloc.
California is about as solidly 'blue' as a state can be in national elections. But of its 52 Members of Congress, 20 are Republicans. Move those 20 votes into the Democratic column, and we get to organize the House. (Just imagine the oversight hearings.)"
