Dingell of Michigan Calls Senate Procedures `Undemocratic'
Representative John Dingell, a Michigan Democrat, said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt” airing this weekend that the Senate’s “undemocratic” procedures have made it a “drain on the legislative process.”

HUNT: On the economy your state of Michigan and your depression, 14 percent unemployment, President Obama’s person in charge of the auto industry recovery, Ed Montgomery, is now leading. Is the administration doing enough for Michigan, for the auto industry?

DINGELL: Well, Michigan people will tell you there is not enough being done and, quite honestly, it is pretty hard to see how anything could be done to cure the problems we have in Michigan. We are not the worst off state, but second worst, but that is terrible as you well know.

Now, having said that, it is important that we do something and do everything that we can to see to it that the state turns around and that the economy of the nation turns around. FULL STORY

Unbelievable. Not only has he missed the point of having a House and Senate, he has no idea how to "cure' the disaster he has created in Michigan over his 54 years in power. Why is he running? People need to get on board with Dr. Steele and retire Dingell fast.

Mr. Dingell obviously needs a rest. Even his rhetoric on important Michigan issues is debilitated. I, of course, agree with Dagny - that 28 terms is enough for this man. We need a true representative of the people in the 15th district, Dr. Rob Steele.

The people of the Detroit area are hosed. Even your representatives have given up.
