Senate Passes Bills In Secret

Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) explains how the Senate is passing bills without debating, scoring, or even voting:

Essentially, the Senate passes bills through a process known as "unanimous consent", but they do it without telling anyone. This means that no one has a chance to object because they don't even know that a bill has been brought up. Since there's no objection, the bill is considered to be unanimously consented to.

The Senate has become the headquarters for the political parties, and Senators obey the party. They don't even care about their constituents. The idea behind voting for Senators is that people will hold them accountable. That's just not happening.

Repeal the 17th Amendment so that state legislatures can hold these people accountable.
