United States Congress has members serving for more than 40 years

This list is at Wikipedia. It is curious that a democratic nation has a congress which some members have more than 40 years of service. John Dingell 55 years! It is more than Qaddafi's 43 years dictatorship, not comparing the work of the both, for sure.
