A Simple Question…
…Does anybody think this is particularly healthy for our country and helps lead to better, more efficient, more honest government for the American people?
John Dingell sets an all-time all-American new record for sitting in the House of Representatives.
The 82-year-old Michigan Democrat has been sitting in the same place now for 19,421 days.
Dingell’s tenure on Capitol Hill goes back to the first Eisenhower administration.
Dingell’s seen 11 moving vans come and go from the White House. Sounds pretty absorbing. Every four years something to see in Washington. Sometimes he has to wait eight years though.
Dingell’s father sat in the same seat.
