Federalist Style Paper Essay
Unfortunately, I do not believe that there is any way for us to change Congressional apportionment in the House because it is hard to make it fair for smaller states. For example, it wouldn’t be fair for a small state in the sense that their population would be too small for them to get representatives in the House. I feel as though the way we currently have it is fair regardless of population because it was set up in a way that would represent all states equally instead of going based on population. If it were based on the population that would make it really hard for some states to voice their opinion and I think it is wrong for a smaller state not to have as much say in government when they are valid as well. Though, the only thing I would change is giving DC a chance to voice their opinion. In my eyes, not everyone is a government lives there and it is wrong for that area not to be able to have representation solely because our main government functions take place there. I think it isn’t fair for the citizens of DC and it should be changed. Although, our territories should get one representative per place as they play a key role in our society too. I believe in fairness and the only way to make this happen would be to provide representation to DC and other U.S territories but keeping representative numbers the same per state as it keeps it a fair system.
