Here’s some passion for you. Illinois State Rep. Mike Bost went ballistic on the House floor. Apparently, a committee passed a pension bill earlier that day, and then the majority pulled a Nancy Pelosi. They forced a vote before anyone could read it.
“Total power in one person’s hands – not the American way!” Bost began.
“These damn bills that come out here all the damn time, come out here at the last second!” Bost added as he threw papers. “I’ve got to figure out how to vote for my people!”
“You should be ashamed of yourselves! I’m sick of it!” he went on. “Every year! We give power to one person! It was not made that way in the Constitution! He was around when it was written! Now we give him – we’ve passed rules that stop each one of us! Enough! I feel like somebody trying to be released from Egypt! Let my people go!”
Indeed, Rep. Mike Bost. Indeed.
