Epic Speech on the Floor of the U.S. House

This May Be a Defining Moment for America

We’ve finally gotten to the point where Congress had to pass a law to make sure that the laws they pass are enforced.

In a speech that Representative Trey Gowdy (R-South Carolina) really shouldn’t have had to make, he explains angrily to the U.S. House what its job is, and to President Barack Obama what his job is. Members were heard to applaud as he reached the crescendo.

Five Democrats joined Republicans in passing a bill that directs Obama to follows the laws – clearing the House by a 233 to 181 vote.
