Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Thursday blasted House Republicans for keeping their Obamacare repeal and replace legislation under wraps.
“I have been told that the House Obamacare bill is under lock & key, in a secure location, & not available for me or the public to view,” Paul tweeted.
“This is unacceptable. This is the biggest issue before Congress and the American people right now.”
House Republicans’ new version of the replacement bill is being kept in a “dedicated reading room,” Bloomberg reported, where it will be available to members of the House Energy and Commerce committee ahead of a markup. The move is an effort to prevent leaks.
GOP leaders say the bill will be released once it is final.
In several tweets, Paul accused House leadership of not wanting to admit to creating a watered down version of Obamacare, and demanded that they release text of the bill.
