Democrats' False Promise on Term Limits

The House Democrats have gotten credit for retaining the Republican rules on term limits for Committee chairs. Interestingly however, they have not applied them retroactively - so Energy and Commerce Chair John Dingell - who has already led the committee for 14 years - has six more in that powerful position.

Or does he have even more? Apparently, the Democrats plan to eliminate the rule before it impacts any of its committee chairs, anyway.

Well, I guess this is one area where the Democrats really will bring change to Washington.

Has any seat in Congress resided in one family as long as Dingell's (held by himself since 1955, and by his father before him from 1933-55)?
