Paul Ryan wants to fine people who livestream from the House floor


Democrats led an epic sit-in (25 hours is nothing to sneeze at) on the House floor last June when House Speaker Paul Ryan refused to vote on gun control bills following the Pulse nightclub massacre. 

Livestreams, tweets and other social media posts of the hours-long Democratic refusal to leave chambers spread all over the internet, but now Ryan is proposing a vote in January to bring in rules that fine anyone who uses electronic devices to photograph, film or broadcast from the House floor.
