Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.), chairman of the powerful tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, plans to retire after his current term, he announced Monday.
Camp said in a statement that his decision "was reached after much consideration and discussion with my family. Serving in Congress is the great honor of my professional life. I am deeply grateful to the people of the 4th Congressional District for placing their trust in me. Over the years, their unwavering support has been a source of strength, purpose and inspiration. During the next nine months, I will redouble my efforts to grow our economy and expand opportunity for every American by fixing our broken tax code, permanently solving physician payments for seniors, strengthening the social safety net and finding new markets for U.S. goods and services."

Maybe Camp David should be simultaneously retired.
Was a good congressman. Turned into an entrenched DC politico to get power. Interesting to see so much of the current leadership stepping aside.
He’s the ways and means committee chair.
Translation: "The extreme, far, far right-wing wackos are in control the party, waaah! We need more Republicans willing to reach across the aisle and compromise with our fellow Democrats."
Well, you almost took the words out of my mouth. I was wondering if he was going to retire to Camp David.
My congressman. Started out good. Went sour quickly. Won’t miss him a bit.
Hmmm...first Rogers, now Camp. Something’s going on that we’re not hearing about.
Definitely something unusual going on in Washington. Its pretty unlikely that the GOP will lose the house so those committee appointments will go to republicans.
Now the question is which republicans.
Couldn't be the IRS now could it? Hmmmm....
Thinking the same thing. Are they reading writing on the wall that’s still behind he curtain ?
Boehner’s losing all his committee chair minions. They’ll probably shove something disastrous through before they all go!
He doesn't have to worry about Peter Konetchy.
You’re in the district. Can we hold it?
Interesting. Thanks for the post/ping.
Can we confiscate every asset of these SCUMBAGS and their children and grandchildren?
What’s amazing is that most Ways & Means Committee Chairs tend to exit Congress feet-first. Way too much power to surrender voluntarily.
It hasn’t gone Democrat since 1982. Bill Schuette, now the State AG, held it before Dave Camp.
I see the great Sam Johnson of Texas is next in line.
