Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana yawned in boredom as disabled protesters, who oppose the Graham-Cassidy bill (which he co-wrote), were hauled out of a hearing in Washington D.C.
HuffPost journalist Matt Fuller tweeted a video of the moment, and wrote: “Bill Cassidy doesn’t seem to be phased. Bill Cassidy is literally yawning as protestors are carried away.”
Fuller noted that Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah shouted at the disabled people, some of whom were in wheelchairs: “Orrin Hatch gavels back in and tells the crowd that, ‘if you can’t remain quiet, then get the heck out.'”
The pro-healthcare protesters, who were reportedly with Americans Disabled Attendant Programs Today, chanted: ““No cuts to Medicaid, save our liberty!”
