Rep.John Dingell (D-MI): It's taken a long time to 'control the people'

Rep. Dingell: It's taken a long time to 'control the people'

American Thinker

Peter Barry Chowka

Rep. John Dingell (D-MI), the Dean of the House of Representatives for being the longest serving member of the body (he was first elected in 1955, succeeding his father, Rep. John Dingell, Sr.), made an amazing admission during a live telephone interview with Detroit WJR News/Talk 760 radio talk show host Paul W. Smith on Smith's show Monday morning, March 22, 2010. The night before, Dingell had been a featured speaker at the Democrat Congressional leadership victory press conference after Obamacare passed the House.

In response to a question posed by Smith, Dingell said:

Let me remind you this Americans allegedly dying because of lack of universal health care has been going on for years. We are bringing it to a halt. The harsh fact of the matter is when you're going to pass legislation that will cover 300 [million] American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.

The comment by Dingell begins 6 minutes 23 seconds into the twelve minute-long podcast of his interview on Smith's radio show. The podcast is titled "Congressman John Dingell tells Paul W. Smith he is thrilled with the passage of the health care bill."

It can be streamed or downloaded as an mp3 audio file from this page at WJR's Web site.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Just another example, similar to Maxine Water’s comments about socializing the oil industry, in a long line of examples of where these people intend to take this country - tyranny.

These people are TRAITORS. They sold their countrymen into enslavement. Pure, unmittigated evil.

Dingell should be held up as the reason we need Term Limits. He's been in congress so long, he has no idea what it's like to live outside of Washington.

"Let the eat cake," Marie Antionette said, too.

A great example of why we need term limits and a 28th amendment prohibiting Congress from exempting itself from it's own legislation.

Ya, gotta wonder, who votes for these people term after term without even thinking. My god, that's 55 years he's been in Washington.

I'd think there would be enough people that could find a better solution than Dingle. Talk about the fix being in this takes the cake.

We have to start now posting against those in our own states and districts. In NY I have 3 local sites where I have started doing that. Against Gillibrand, Schumer, Murphy and Hinchey.

I'm with Mark on this. Why?? It's as if Jimmy Hoffa were still running the show. Crooked as hell.

Term limits would help so much.

I agree too that there is something seriously wrong with people that keep voting this guy back in.

It takes a special person to have that kind of power for a long time and I can't even think of anyone right now. But power sure goes to their heads and if they are hate types to begin with like this man, Reid, and so many of them, like Obama is filled with resentment and hate is the worst job in the world for them to have.Weilding power in the sickest way.

Thank you everyone so very much.
