They give the Senate a voice. Large states felt that they should have more representation in congress., small states wanted equal representation.The creation of a bicameral legislative house give the Senate equal representation and The House representation based on population.
Why is the House Of Representatives is based upon population while the Senate is based upon equality?
The House of representative have some unique powers including elect the president in case of a electoral college tie, and impeach federal officials!
The Senate has the sole power to conduct impeachment trials, and essentially serving as jury and judge.And filibuster and cloture.
I need to know some powers of the Senate for my homework!!
