Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) interrupted his floor speech during the Senate’s vote on the GOP tax bill early Wednesday to admonish Republicans in the chamber for speaking during his speech.
“Can we have order, Mr. President?” Schumer said to the presiding senator, Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.).
“This is serious stuff. We believe you’re messing up America. You could pay attention for a couple of minutes," Schumer added.
Schumer used his speech to blast the GOP tax bill, saying the bill would lead to a “hefty windfall for the wealthy and only [a] paltry temporary leap for some in the middle class” and labeling the bill as a “disgrace.”
