Topical, Advanced-Novice Political Science Question for EZ

Dear EZ,

Why is there so much more support for the public option in the House than there is in the Senate? Does it have to do with demography, geography, etc.?

School me. I'm kinda slow. Got any charts?

Lex,

It is kinda like what my diss. was about. The difference between at-large (Senate) and district (house) elections. Since we have single member winner take all first past the post(plurality req.) in almost all states, the senate requires a much larger vote total(to win) than the house. This ends up with a much broader and more middling coalition to win a senates seat. Also, as my diss. showed (albeit at the city level), the difference in the amount of money needed to be competitive, and the power of money to sway outcomes is larger in the At-large than in district races. Additionally, there is a rural urban split. The Progressives mostly come from urban and sub-urban areas, and can win the smaller, more homogeneous house seats. Some senators represent states with smaller populations than a house seat.
That is why there are around 90 progressives in the house(about 20%) and only 2(maybe3) in the senate. This is also why there is so little black representation in the senate. Blacks do not make up a majority in any state. (add in historic rac(ial)(ist) white voting patterns and you have the US post-reconstruction with precisely 3 african americans serving in the senate since ruthefraud)

this has been politics minute with EZ... you may now return to your regular townhall viewing...

Hi

I just joined this lovely site. I found loads of useful information here. Please accept my little contribution towards community. I would like to share some [url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com/lose-10-pounds-in-2-weeks-quick-weight-loss-tips]quick weight loss tips[/url]. If you need to know how to lose 10 lbs in a week, you are probably not seeing for a common diet and work out plan. You can lose weight with a regular diet and work out plan, Still this takes a lot of time doing intense cardio drills and sticking to a strict diet. Here I will outline the exact steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a calendar week.

1. Stay away from all deep-fried nutrients for the week
2. Drink an 8oz glass of Citrus paradisi with breakfast each day. (this accelerates up your metabolism)
3. Consume average portions (stop consuming when you are full)
4. Instead of consuming 3 huge a meals a day, consume 5-6 small meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
5. Aviod eating after 9 P.M.. When you eat that late your body does not burn off the calories.
6. Get plenty of sleep every night. Not getting enough sleep causes been proved to be a leading element to the body putting up excess fat.
7. Apply a body/colon cleanse for the 7 days. This will get rid of unnecessary fat stored just about the tummy area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that cause you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
8. I reccomend you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is proven to work, and you can get a free trial.
9. For those people who wish to burn fat quickly, avoid alcohol.
