An Illinois state lawmaker lost his cool on the state House floor Tuesday... in a big way.

Republican Mike Bost was furious about a new plan to overhaul the state pension system.

He unleashed a screaming rant on Democrats for not giving them enough time to read over the latest version of the proposed bill.

He threw papers into the air, yelled and even quoted Moses from the Bible, saying "Let My People Go."

All this-while stunned colleagues looked on.
