US Rep. Justin Amash breaks down in tears after missing a vote in Congress

Michigan Republican Rep. Justin Amash on Fridag broke down in tears after his 4,289 votes in a row record ended.

Amash had previously boasted that about not missing a single vote since he arrived in Congress in 2011.

But on Friday, Amash failed to notice a roll call had just closed while he was talking to reporters about his objections to the party’s health care bill, which he’s dubbed “Obamacare 2.0.”

While speaking with reporters and noticing that he was almost losing a vote, Amash sprinted into the chamber and tried to put his card in the voting but the vote had closed.

He approached the leadership asking if

they could either re-open the vote or call it again, but they couldn’t.

Rep. Steve Womack now holds the record for the longest voting streak in the House with 4,294 votes.

Womack said in a statement, “I have been sent to Washington by Third District Arkansans to make sure their voices are heard; voting is fundamental to that duty.”

“I am humbled by the opportunity to serve my constituents and thank God that no personal hardships have kept me from representing them on a single vote since taking office.”
