Democrats in Congress and their supporters are being critical of House Speaker Paul Ryan for not turning on microphones and cameras during the House Dems’ sit-in:

Republicans have turned off the cameras in the House of Representatives so that public can't see gun control protest! Stunning.

Pelosi and the Dems didn’t seem to mind so much when somebody else did it:
Flashback to 2008 when Speaker Pelosi shut off House floor lights and CSPAN cameras as GOPers demanded energy votes https://t.co/IqnTPrkWWz

Pelosi now calling on Ryan to "turn on this microphone." Just FYI – When Rs did that to her in 2008 (Pelosi was speaker then), she said no.

Remember when Pelosi ordered CSPAN cameras off when GOP had its "sit-in" over gas prices in 2008? How she turned off lights? Retaliation. Go
