Republicans are tearing up documents on House floor, throwing a fit because of Pelosi (VIDEO)
House Republicans have been condemning Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for days now, after she tore up her copy of President Trump's State of the Union speech. The move was largely considered symbolic.
So what are they doing now? They're on the floor of the House of Representatives throwing a fit like little babies.
Congressman Paul Mitchell (R-MI) went off on Friday:
"So, let me at this time express my opinion, exercise my First Amendment rights, by simply saying...." He then paused before tearing up a paper and storming off.
The particular piece of paper he tore up was a Democratic resolution critical of a proposed regulatory change introduced by the Trump administration on healthcare.
So, basically, when Congressman Mitchell was trying to imitate Speaker Pelosi, he expressed his outrage that Democrats were criticizing Trump for reducing Medicaid spending. Critics say this will make it harder for low-income people to get health benefits. It's good to know this is what Republicans are mad about - letting people have access to healthcare.
Other Republicans are copying Pelosi's move, too, and indirectly acknowledging to the American people that it was a great marketing tactic.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy released a video showing him saying "acquitted for life," as he ripped up papers showing Trump was impeached.

One of the reason's Pelosi tore up the speech is because it's a "a manifesto of mistruths." That's what she told reporters as she was walking off the House floor on Tuesday.
We really don't know why Republicans are so angry to be honest. Trump is basically doing the same thing to the U.S. Constitution, is he not?
