Flip-flop

Have the characters of the House and Senate flipped?

In the old normal, senators would harrumph at length on a bipartisan basis about being members of a "deliberative body" of ladies and gentlemen while viewing the House with some disdain as a bunch of chest-thumping, lock-stepping good ole boys and girls.

Representatives, in turn, regarded senators disdainfully as something of an elitist debating society, foolishly dithering away hours and days in arcane arguments over the minutia of mundane matters.

In the new normal, the House has become the deliberative body while the Senate is home of the Republican lockstep railroad.
