OK, if we interpret the Constitution as requiring a Senate with a nonzero number of senators for each state, then we could pass an amendment to de-power it, much like the UK did with the House of Lords. Every state would still get two Senators, they could still deliberate and give their official advice and judgement on legislation, they could still vote, and the democratically-elected House could hold all of the actual power.
