Even though Congress has a “pretty toxic” political culture, Representative Debbie Dingell and fellow Michigan representative Fred Upton said they both still have hope for cooperation there. 

“I have a lot of friends on the other side and what we need to do is to all of us get back to just remembering how much we have in common, just respecting each other, treating each other with dignity,” Representative Dingell said. 

She and Upton are close friends, but noted that the current situation, in and out of Washington, is quite unpleasant.
