Martial Law Coming very Soon.....

'Martial Law' In The
House Of Representatives

Under the martial law procedure, long-standing House rules that require at least
one day between the unveiling of significant legislation and the House floor vote
on that legislation so that Members can learn what they are being asked to vote on are swept away.

Instead, under "martial law," the Leadership can file legislation with tens or hundreds
of pages of fine print and move immediately to debate and votes on it, before...
Members of Congress, The Media, or The Public
have an opportunity to understand fully what provisions have been altered or inserted into the
legislation behind closed doors. This is the procedure that the Leadership intends to use to
muscle through important bills in the next two days.
