    “As I prepare to leave this all behind, I now leave you in control of the greatest nation of mankind and pray God gives you the wisdom to understand the responsibility you hold in your hands.”

    An amazing story, an amazing man, an amazing career

    This is so very touching. Imagine spending literally your last moments on Earth, bidding farewell to the country you served and love.

    "Deepest sympathies to Congresswoman Debbie Dingell and the entire family of John Dingell. Longest serving Congressman in Country’s history which, if people understand politics, means he was very smart. A great reputation and highly respected man." - Trump

    " Dingell would see the Red Scare of the 1950s, the golden age of civil-rights legislation, and the end of the Cold War. He would vote for the passage of Medicare, Medicaid, and the Affordable Care Act, pushing toward his father’s goal of universal health care. And Dingell would serve with—but never, he would insist, under—11 presidents."

    That district has been in "Dingle hands" for nearly 90 years. He inherited the district from his father after, I think, 22 years. His wife inherited the district after he retired.

    Leftists think they're that important. Like RBG, they refuse to give up ruling over others.

    I wish they'd just go away and stop meddling in the country

    Legacies are a central part of Congress. But that doesn’t make them a good thing. Dingell, because his father was in Congress, grew up in D.C., attending Georgetown Prep and prowling the halls of Capitol Hill. He even went to college and law school in D.C., spending only a few months living in Michigan before he took his father’s seat. Then, he was permanently ensconced in his House seat for decades before taking a D.C.-based lobbyist as his wife.

    Dingell let slip that the goal of Obamacare was to "control the people"

    So we should celebrate that we were stuck with a fucking socialist for six decades? Good riddance to the SOB. May he rot in his grave.
