USA, USA, USA!’: See the Speech That Got a Standing Ovation in Congress Today

Representative Mike Kelly, speaking on the House floor today, managed something very rare in the history of the institution – he got a standing ovation. Applause is usually forbidden in the house, but Kelly‘s blistering attack on regulatory red tape and Washington’s culture of control was apparently so powerful that several of his fellow house members couldn’t resist showing their support, clapping, standing up and shouting “USA! USA! USA!”

Would you applaud this way? See Kelly’s speech below and decide for yourself:

It's about freakin time someone said that we're all AMERICANS and such.  Not Progressives, not Conservatives, not Greenies, just AMERICANS that want to work on a level playing field.

I guess a mirror hung 1/4 inch too low is more important than great bunch of AMERICAN kids playing baseball.

Stupid Government regulations......................and some want them involved in health care??? Really??

 Yeah, who needs regulations?  They seem like they are doing fine on their own.
