State Senator Kevin de Leon harshly criticized Republicans for breaking into song following the passage of the AHCA. He got it wrong.
State Senator Kevin de Leon (D-CA) harshly criticized Republicans for breaking into song following the passage of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) on Thursday.
De Leon, who made the remarks the floor of the state assmebly, said that it was “morally repugnant” and “un-American” that Republicans were singing following the bill reaching the requisite 216 votes.
CSPAN video caught audible singing of “Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye,” Thursday afternoon in the House chamber.
But there’s one big problem with de Leon’s claim: it was actually Democrats who started gleefully singing.

Believing that voters would punish Republican members of Congress for the vote, Democrats celebrated the passage of a bill they warned would kill thousands of people.
“That’s not who we are,” de Leon accidentally said to Democrats. But it turns out, that’s exactly who Democrats are.
