    something wrong with this part

    "...on the issue of whether the new Congress should be proportioned by population or have equal votes for each state. "

    There could possibly something wrong with "have" because the subject of "have" is "the new Congress" in singular form, so it should be corrected to "has", or "the new Congress" has a plural meaning, which refers to the Congressmen, which is correct?
    thanks.

    It's "should be" or "should have." You wouldn't say "should has."
