Republican Sen. Rand Paul isn't happy with House Republicans' decision to keep their Obamacare replacement bill under lock and key somewhere in the Capitol Building.

The Kentucky lawmaker aired his grievances on Twitter Thursday morning to protest the move.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bloomberg reported Wednesday that the draft of the Obamacare replacement bill is being kept under a tight lid. It was to be available for members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee Thursday morning, but only in a dedicated reading room. Lawmakers would not be allowed to make copies or remove the document from the room.

Republicans have promised in recent years to repeal and replace Obamacare, but any effort to do so during former President Barack Obama's presidency would have resulted in failure. With Republican President Donald Trump in office, the GOP's plans to ditch the Affordable Care Act for something else have been given new life.
