Rand Paul Hunts for Obamacare Replacement Plan Held in 'Secure Location'

I am heading to the secure location where they are keeping the House Obamacare bill. Rep. Chris Collins, who sits on the Energy Committee, told the news outlet that "unfortunately", the bill might have to be voted on before the CBO gets to see it.

After clashing with GOP leadership last week, accusing them of trying to push legislation that did not fully repeal Obamacare, Sen. Few details of the proposal have emerged publicly.

Congressional Democrats and one Senate Republican on Thursday claimed that they were being denied access to an Obamacare replacement bill that House Republican leaders are drafting behind closed doors. That makes it "welfare" instead of a "tax cut", you see - "redistribution" instead of "letting people keep more of their own money". Mike Lee, R-Utah, tweeted Monday night.

These four policies, which are common to lots of Republican plans, including Paul Ryan's A Better Way, have one important thing in common: Republicans believe they can move forward through reconciliation, meaning they would need only 51 votes in the Senate.

The lack of consensus has made it hard to repeal former President Obama's signature healthcare law after Republicans campaigned on a pledge to repeal and replace it.

It became known to lawmakers in Congress Thursday that a big portion of the replacement healthcare legislation Republicans have been working on, titled H-157, was being held for House review in a secret room somewhere on the Capitol grounds. It took the Democrats dozens of committee hearings and almost 14 months to pass the law, which included many Republican amendments. The effort to repeal the ACA is the first major test of whether they can harness the energy they used to oppose the law to actually undo it - or whether ideological divisions will sink the effort. They contend Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price can do some of the work administratively, and say they can attach other pieces to unrelated legislation.

Many insurance providers have recently dropped out of ACA exchanges due to excessive coverage costs. Trump endorsed the idea of tax credits in his address on Tuesday, but the Freedom Caucus has protested the provision as continuing an entitlement program from the Obama era.

Paul blasted committee members for keeping a plan to repeal and replace the health care law out of public viewing. The location of the plan remains unknown.

"During the ACA, we posted the bill online 30 days before the markup ― we had over 70 hearings", he continued, adding that Republicans seemed intent on holding a full committee markup without a hearing "and no regular order whatsoever". Legislators were not given copies of that draft, a week after an earlier version of the measure was leaked to reporters and lobbyists.
