01 Jun

“Why, did you pour that coffee into your saucer?” asked George Washington. “To cool it,” replied Thomas Jefferson. “Even so,” said Washington, “we pour legislation into the senatorial saucer to cool it.” The Convention hotly debated whether the Constitution should provide for one or two legislative chambers – the House and the Senate. Washington wanted two chambers, Jefferson only one.
