Woman Protester Takes Top Off In Gallery Of House Of Representatives During Tax Reform Bill Vote

The House of Representatives passed the Republicans’ sweeping tax overhaul today sending the plan to the Senate and setting the stage for the bill to be signed into law by President Trump as early as this week.
The bill passed the House 227 to 203. All but 12 Republican members voted for the bill. Zero Democrats supported it.
“This is one of the most important pieces of legislation Congress has passed in decades…for all those millions of Americans struggling paycheck to paycheck, help is on the way,” House Speaker Paul Ryan said after the vote. “This is a good day for workers and a great day for growth.”
Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) echoed Ryan. “On New Year’s Day, America will have a new tax code for a new era of American prosperity.” 
The vote itself was chaotic, with a handful activists sitting in the public gallery repeatedly interrupting Republicans as they introduced the tax measure before they were escorted out by Capitol Police.
At one point, an activist yelled, “You are lying to yourselves!” and told House Republicans they needed to go back to school to learn math, which elicited laughter among the Democrats on the floor.
A woman in a wheelchair chanted, “Shame! Shame!” as she was removed from the gallery. 
At another point, someone on the Republican side of the chamber reacted to the activists by shouting, “Throw her ass out!”
