comment Is the USA Congress explicitly patterned after the British Parliament?
Re: Direct election to the upper house. The Senate was much closer to the House of Lords originally, in that state legislatures- not ordinary citizens, selected senators. In the 1900s, however, the 17th amendment changed tat, making them directly elected. (and killing federalism in the process, but I digress)
