I’ve always believed there should be a much larger congress, with the end of gerrymandering districts as well. I never realized that the proposed first amendment to the constitution actually would have called for a huge number of reps. Sadly it was only approved in the house and not by the senate. Here it is:

Article I.   After the first enumeration required by the first article of the constitution, there shall be one representative for every thirty thousand, until the number shall amount to one hundred, after which the proportion shall be so regulated by Congress, that there shall be not less than one hundred representatives, nor less than one representative for every forty thousand persons, until the number of representatives shall amount to two hundred, after which the proportion shall be so regulated by Congress, that there shall not be less than two hundred representative [sic] [the usual “nor less than one representative” is omitted either by mistake or for brevity’s sake] for every fifty thousand persons.
