SPRINGFIELD, IL (KPLR) – Illinois State Representative Mike Bost, (R) Murphysboro, was fed up with what he says was pension bills repeatedly being voted on without giving any of the lawmakers a chance to read them.

He throws the paperwork from a bill in the air, hit the microphone and tells the members of the House to “let my people go!”

Frustrated and red in the face, Bost finally collapses in his seat, while those seated around him look away, or have no reaction at all.
