A U.S. House Representative from Florida was booed on the House Floor after she referred to President Joe Biden's spending bill as "Build Back Broke."
Republican Rep. Kat Cammack of Florida said she was voting "hell no" on Biden's Build Back Better spending bill and was designated by some of her Republican colleagues to issue similar votes on their behalf.
"As a member voting 'hell no' on this bill, and the member designated by Ms. Letlow of the state of Louisiana, I inform the house that Ms. Letlow will vote neigh on H.R. 5376, a.k.a. build back broke, and as the member designated by Mr. Loudermilk of the state of – Madam Speaker, the House is not in order."
Cammack stopped her speech to request that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi call the House to order after she was met with boo's.

In a statement, Cammack referred to the bill as a "dumpster fire."
House Democrats passed the nearly $2 trillion social spending bill on Friday morning that will set up universal pre-K for toddlers and renew monthly cash payments to the vast majority of American families for another year. The bill will also expand Medicare, enact paid family and medical leave, and issue caps for some prescription drugs, among other things.
The bill, which will be paid for largely by tax hikes on the rich and large firms who pay little to nothing in federal taxes, went to the Senate. There, it faces an uncertain future as Sen. Joe Manchin has not committed to backing the bill.
