In a heated debate on the Congressional House floor a Republican and Democrat got into a heated debate over the Affordable Healthcare Act.
Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.) was rudely interrupted by Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) while giving his response to the vicious attacks against Republicans. Mullins quickly told him ‘You can shut up now.’ Many people may not like this, but I love it and believe more Republicans should stand up in the manner of this gentleman from Oklahoma.
Mullins stated, “My employees that I have currently ― because I’m still an employer ― their biggest complaint that they have about ACA is that their coverage sucks,” he said. “It doesn’t cover anything. Their premiums are off the chart because it does nothing. You want to talk about ACA prices? Let’s do something about it.”
Lujan attempted to interrupt by asking for Mullins to yield his time.
“No,” Mullinssaid. “If I did, I would have already told you. You already had your time to talk.”
Luján again interrupted Mullens unfairly.
“I said I wasn’t going to yield to you,” Mullin fired back. “You can shut up now.”
The Democrats demanded Mulllins to apologize, but he stood his ground like a man and refused to back down. This is the kind of people we need in Congress to fight back against the radical left.
