John Lewis: 'Disgraceful' GOP Breaks Every Olive Branch Obama Offers


An emotional Rep John Lewis (D-GA) took to the house floor Wednesday to argue against the House Republicans proceeding with a lawsuit against President Barack Obama.

“From the first day in office, the Republicans in this House has never supported this president,” Lewis yelled. “Every olive branch he extended was broken. But today, Mr. Speaker, they have reached a low, a very low point. This resolution to sue the president just goes a little too far. It is a shame and a disgrace that we are here debating the suing of the president. The American people deserve better. We can do better. We can do much better.” 

“I urge each and every one of my colleagues top oppose this insulating resolution. it has no place on the floor. let us get back to work that we were elected to do.” he added.
