Do We Need More Congressmen?

by Patrick Appel

Reihan says yes. Bernstein is against the idea:

[W]hat (rightly!) bothers people about the Senate is the malapportionment, not the idea that there are only 100 Senators. And note that most of us feel a lot closer to our Senators than to our Member of the Housebecause our Senators get so much more publicity than do Members of the House. Increasing the size of the House would, alas, only make that problem worse.
