You got that right.

OP, it's always refreshing to see things like this.


EDIT: Did anyone else notice how everyone else there just sat there slouched drooling like zombies? (Except the chick who giggled briefly)

That was awesome. I also lost it when he yelled 'Let my people go!'

Good for this Rep...

If anyone spots an article in regards to his disgust with the workings of Congress please post it, I did a quick check and nothing surfaced as of now..

Watch it a second time, and take notice of all of those sitting around him while he vents his frustration.. some thought it was funny

This is what we need more of. A elected official trying to stand up for his people. I think I just found a write in or atleast a canidate for 2016.

The sad part was he didnt even rile up the people in the seats next to him. Look at them, they hardly moved when he threw the papers everywhere. They look half asleep.

As other people here have said, the concerning part is the other people's reactions.

Even if you agreed with the man and didn't have the balls to say something yourself, surely this would be the opportunity to stand up and support his plea?
Nope, they would rather swivel on their chair... like this wheeeee


This man needed to feel support here, not isolated.

Something:


Illinois state Rep. Mike Bost (R-Murphysboro) engaged in a fiery rant on the floor of the state House where he threw papers and screamed at his fellow representatives over the state’s unfunded pension liabilities and Democrat-lead pension reform measures.

“These damn bills that come out here all the damn time, come out here at the last second,” screamed Bost. “I’ve got to figure out how to vote for my people! You should be ashamed of yourselves! I’m sick of it!”

This guy is really amazing..

He is right though, left or right
would not matter if ALL of them
stood up and would get mad,
when bull crap is being pushed around..

Most these bills these guys never even have
a chance to read.. (like the healthcare bill)
then they are expected to tow the party line
on it whatever the hell it is, without them being
able to know what the hell it is they are really voting for.

I don't think it is right, and this guy has some guts..
Why would they push these bills out like this?
Because most of them are shady, and most these bills
are filled with more pork than a pig farm.

When I read the title I thought it was another zombie attack but this time in the House Floor

Good to see it wasn't that kind of losing it....
