A Congressman Loses His Temper When Told To Not Talk About The People Suffering In The Room

Congress has voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act 46 times, wasting tons of time on pointless votes while actively ignoring other issues like immigration reform. Rep. Joe Garcia decided to speak up about the real people affected by the lack of action, and he spoke eloquently about a family sitting in the gallery. After his speech ended, at 2:37, Rep. Jackie Walorski, who was standing in as speaker pro tempore, let Rep. Garcia know that mentioning people in the gallery isn't acceptable. At which point another congressman, Rep. Jared Polis, kind of lost his temper. In a really great way.


If you think it would be great if Congress did something — instead of literally nothing — you could share this.
