Former Rep. John Dingell (D-MI) has died at age 92. Rep. Dingell was the longest-serving member ever of Congress.

In this 2014 speech at the National Press Club, Mr. Dingell talked about some of the changes he saw during his nearly 60-year congressional career, from the growth in the size of committees to a lack of compromise among members to pass legislation. He said Congress was broken, but didn’t have to be, and argued that change would only come if there were a national calamity, or if the American people chose to replace all members of Congress. close
