WASHINGTON, DC — The United States House of Representatives has invoked martial law Thursday afternoon.
The move comes as Congress is trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. The House of Representatives will enact “martial law” thru Tuesday under rule. This will allow the House to vote on the repeal without notice if the U.S. Senate passes the bill.
BREAKING: The House has invoked martial law. If the Senate passes skinny repeal, the House can vote on it without notice.
