Rep. Mike Bost Is Mad As Hell.....

In a Howard Beale moment - Illinois State Representative Mike Bost erupts in fury on the House floor Tuesday afternoon, after lawmakers call on a quick vote for a new pension reform proposal. Bost was expressing his frustration at Speaker Madigan(D) and the rules which caused this new pension reform bill to be presented in such a manner that lawmakers could not read it before voting on it.

Yeah, we are all sick of this type of passage of legislation.
"Pass the bill so you can see what's in it..." it's just not the way things are supposed to be done.

Ok... so maybe the Bost did not display proper decorum (at least he didn't act like some legislator from Italy)... but I'll wager we will see more of this behavior because the frustration level in these state houses is just too high.... as is the frustration of many Americans.

Time and time again we see massive legislation being shoved through without proper debate or consideration. This is not good, and it is not right. It's happening in Congress and it's happening in our States. This is certainly not the way the system was intended to work.... and the party in power acts like a dictatorship.
