That "more effective form of governance" created by the founders was abandoned with the reapportionment act of 1929 which put a cap on the members of the house and a minimum members of house for each state, making it effectively Senate Jr. Instead of fully representative representation.
It should be worth noting, that if this system was followed before the Reapportionment act of 1929 hit, chances are that Bernie Sanders would be the US president right now, as he won areas over Hillary that would have given him more advantage, and in turn, the democrats would have one a non-reapportioned electorate even at Hillary's dismal numbers.
Further, the Reapportionment act of 1929 is decidedly unconstitutional as it violates Article IV of the constitution.
