Retirement of Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) May Be a Part of Bigger Shifts in the GOP

THE BIG IDEA: Exhausted from his ideological battles with the House Freedom Caucus and clashes with Donald Trump’s White House, Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) has decided to retire.

“As a member of the governing wing of the Republican Party, I’ve worked to instill stability, certainty and predictability in Washington,” Dent said in a statement last night announcing that he will not seek an eighth term. “I’ve fought to fulfill the basic functions of government, like keeping the lights on and preventing default. Regrettably, that has not been easy given the disruptive outside influences that profit from increased polarization and ideological rigidity that leads to dysfunction, disorder and chaos.”

Dent is the co-chairman of the moderate Tuesday Group, which has about 50 center-right members. That’s more than the three dozen or so guys in the Freedom Caucus, but the tea partyers punch above their weight because they mostly vote as a bloc.

I’d personally also like to say that there may be a situation that you will obtain a loan and never need a co-signer such as a Fed Student Aid Loan. In case you are getting financing through a regular bank then you need to be prepared to have a co-signer ready to help you. The lenders will probably base their very own decision using a few elements but the greatest will be your credit ratings. There are some loan merchants that will additionally look at your work history and make a decision based on that but in almost all cases it will depend on your scores.
