John Dingell's Long View

 

continued

[One major issue is] to get control of the costs of the student loans--I've got kids in the office who have bills for student loans bigger than their mortgages, their houses--explain that to me if you can.



Observer: You told the Detroit News that serving in Congress is "obnoxious."

Dingell: The Congress has become a very difficult place to serve. [It] started, as I recall, when [former House speaker Newt] Gingrich came in and started running against the Congress and [members] decided to get themselves elected by denouncing the Congress.

We're supposed to be talking together. I don't see that being done. I think it's a bad thing--bad for the country, bad for Congress, bad for the people.

Over your years in Congress, what memories stand out?
