Yes, but it'd still be bound by "has to be ratified by 3/4ths of the states" afterwards, so better write something 38 state legislatures can get behind.

The easiest way to get around the Senate is to allow the Senate's continued existence, but allow the House to pass bills on the behalf of Congress without approval from the Senate.

Turning the Senate into the House of Lords, with power to say "You might want to take another look at that" but without power to say no?

I'm not sure how I feel about that.
