Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ) threw a fit when he couldn’t obtain a “parliamentary inquiry,” interrupting the chairman 10 times in under two minutes.
A House committee markup of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) – the House GOP’s replacement for Obamacare – descended into chaos on Wednesday when a Democratic representative threw a fit after his “parliamentary inquiry” was not immediately entertained.
Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR) was moving forward on the AHCA when Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ) interrupted, attempting to obtain a “parliamentary inquiry” so that he could hold a vote on postponing markup of the Obamacare replacement bill.
When Walden pressed forward, Pallone quickly became upset, interrupting the chairman at least 10 times in two minutes. Walden finally entertained Pallone’s motion, after which the committee voted down Pallone’s effort to delay markup of the Obamacare replacement bill.
