Chickens**t House GOP Hide Their ACA Replacement - Part of Plan to Ram It Through the House
What a Bunch of Cowards
Bloomberg reports that Republican have a replacement for Obamacare ready but will not allow it to be made public.
House Republican leaders have a new version of their major Obamacare repeal and replacement bill. They just don’t want you to see it.
The document is being treated a bit like a top-secret surveillance intercept. It is expected to be available to members and staffers on the House Energy and Commerce panel starting Thursday, but only in a dedicated reading room, one Republican lawmaker and a committee aide said. Nobody will be given copies to take with them.
The unusual secrecy is a reflection of the sensitivity -- and the stakes -- surrounding the GOP effort to rewrite the Affordable Care Act, a top priority of President Donald Trump, who has yet to offer his own plan.
Republican leaders are trying to avoid a repeat of what happened last time. When an outdated draft leaked last week, it was quickly panned by conservatives.
Uh, they do realize they have to reveal it don't they? Maybe not, these aren't the brightest bulbs in the pack, kinda like 5 watt if that. We guess they think no one is looking. And from Taegan Goddard this news that they are even scared of Rand Paul. We mean, who is ever scared of Ron Paul?
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) “tried unsuccessfully to wrest a draft of the House GOP’s Obamacare bill from a secure room in the Capitol on Thursday, an escalation of his opposition to the party’s healthcare plans,” Politico reports.
“The bill had apparently been moved from the room, which was guarded by Capitol Police — or was never there at all — by the time that Paul got there. But his decision to stomp over to the House side of the Capitol, with dozens of reporters in tow, highlighted conservatives’ concerns about an opaque process as the GOP races to repeal Obamacare.
