Decentralization of Congress
Fiorina, Morris "The Rise of the Washington Establishment" American Government Ed. Peter Woll.
The Framers' of the United States' Constitution created a divided government and delegated power to each of the three branches of government they created. They did not want to concentrate all the power into a single governmental institution; even one elected by popular vote, because they feared such a consolidation of power would lead to an oppressive or impassioned majority. Hence, legislative responsibilities were granted to Congress, which was further subdivided into a Senate and House of Representatives, as decided in the Great Compromise. This layout of a bicameral legislature was constructed in an attempt to thwart a future concentration of power that could lead to an oppressive majority. Since its creation, Congress has endured an ongoing conflict regarding the internal distribution of power. There are two competing values which struggle for supremacy in both the House and Senate which consist of: efficiency by means of a strong and centralized leadership, and that of participation through a decentralization of leadership.
