House Democrats involved in an unprecedented protest on the House floor shouted down Speaker Paul Ryan as he attempted to bring the group to order.

The protest began early Wednesday. Ryan slammed House Democrats¬†about it on CNN saying,¬†“We don’t agree with that. The Senate already doesn’t agree with that … This is a publicity stunt.”
