Egregious process

Why are the media not demanding reforms after the scandalous House elections? At least that is the case in Pennsylvania, and I suspect in much of the country? In Pennsylvania, more voters chose Democratic candidates than Republicans, which should deliver an edge in number of delegates to the Democrats. Instead, we send 13 Republicans and five Democrats to the House while electing a Democratic senator, and the media treat this as a schizophrenic electorate.

Such egregious gerrymandering is how we end up with a national Democratic majority delivering a Republican House and hence a split Congress. We are the only Western democracy that leaves the election process in the hands of local partisan politicians and this is the corruption, gridlock and illegitimate government we get for it.
