GOP Talkathon Part IV: Come on Down

The revolution has begun! March on Washington. If you can't get there then send e-mails, make phone calls! Take back our government! Let them vote, Madam Speaker and let our voices be heard!
With the public viewing galleries shutting down for the night, Rep. Kevin Brady has just invited everyone down to the House floor to keep the protest going.
It has been quite the scene on the House floor this afternoon, as GOP staff members have kept the chamber filled with an eclectic assortment of people.
Boy Scouts, members of the German army, stray tourists and even members in shorts and t-shirts have all been spotted on the floor at different times.
While Democrats have privately decried the breakdown in order, Republicans defended the protest.
"You are not witnessing a revolt," said Rep. Mike Pence. "You are witnessing democracy in action."
