House Dems Refuse To Yield To GOP Demands For Order, Sit-In Continues
June 22, 2016

When Speaker of the House Paul Ryan gaveled the House of Representatives to order, no one listened.

They voted on a bill to override President Obama's financial regulation rules at the moment, but Democrats are not being silent. During the votes, they sang "We Shall Overcome," and shouted "Shame!" at Ryan as he left the room.

Republicans quickly gaveled out after their veto override failed.

Here are some tweets:

UPDATE 1:

Louie Gohmert had to jump into the action. LOL

UPDATE 2:

Goober Gohmert shouting at the Dems:

Can you help us out?
