Essentially you are telling me the US senate is an absolute mess. 

Congress has been a mess since its inception, by design. The whole country was built inorganically to try and appease opposing political ambitions

As far as I am aware they are finally talks to remove the filibuster.

There is a PR statehood bill (H.R. 4901) but its probably going to die in committee :noparty: 

Which is sad because now a majority of Puerto Ricans support statehood. It'd be a swing state too so idk why Republicans want to gift Democrats the fight for PR statehood. If Dems are the ones that get it done, middle ground PR voters would feel more...idk, "obligated" isn't the right word but they'd be more willing to vote Dem.

If there was bipartisan support for it then Republicans could tap into the conservatives and centrists living there.
