Here is video of Republican Rep. Steve Buyer reading acting House Speaker (Dem Rep. Laura Richardson) the riot act over the power games she was playing by refusing to recognize him to speak even though there was no one else even there to object to him being recognized. As she continued to deny him the right to speak, Buyer even said to her, “This is why the American People have thrown you out of power.”

It’s Never WRONG to be Patriotic.
For too long, members of Congress have put their personal agendas ahead of the Constitution they have sworn to uphold. Many have chosen to spend tax dollars without regard for the future. That must end.
In the 112th Congress, I will be a voice for serious reform in Washington. I believe that government must be smaller, more transparent and less expensive.
I am reminded of an illustration that free-market economist Milton Freidman used. He noted that there are four ways money can be spent: you can spend your own money on yourself, you can spend your own money on someone else, you can spend someone else’s money on yourself or you can spend someone else’s money on someone else. Clearly, we all spend most efficiently when we are in the first category. Congress fits in that last category – and because Congress is always spending someone else’s money on someone else, it rarely uses your tax dollars efficiently.
That’s why I always try to remember that I am voting to spend my own money – my tax dollars and those of my children as well as yours. It’s why I want you to hold me accountable for the way I spend your hard-earned money. And that’s why I want to make sure you keep as much of your money as possible.
Looking ahead, I fully expect that the Speaker of the House will call the 111th Congress back into session one more time. Should that occur, I will oppose any attempts to use a “lame duck” Congress to pass a legislative agenda that is out of step with the priorities of the American people. During the next Congress, which will begin in January, I look forward to pushing back the big government agenda of this administration and advancing simple, conservative solutions to the real problems Americans face.
You can be part of that process by sharing your top priorities with me. I always appreciate hearing from you.
