Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, has had enough of the all-day sit in protest from House Democrats. Liberal politicians have been occupying the House floor for the entire afternoon, and now, reports are circulating that Republicans will try to regain control of the House floor at 10pm ET.

If that fails, Ryan allegedly already has senate police on stand-by, ready to remove the Democrats from the House floor, regardless of the mayhem it may cause. Earlier, Ryan held a press conference in which he called the strategic move a “publicity stunt,” rather than a fight to protect Americans.

Law enforcement is apparently the last resort, as Ryan and his staff are prepared to attempt tactics such as turning off the air conditioning and the lights.
Rep. Tom Cole told me that after the House votes to adjourn tonight, the lights and AC may turn off.
