GOP senators blocked from seeing Ryan plan for ACA being held in ‘secure location’
(Jim Stinson, Lifezette) – The draft repeal of the Affordable Care Act is already so controversial — with Republicans — that it is being held in a “secure location.”
And even Republican senators are barred from seeing it by GOP leadership.
Locked in a room in the U.S. Capitol, where only members of the U.S. House of Representatives can see it — the bill sits, aflame in controversy.
Republicans have said for years they were on the same page on repealing and replacing the behemoth health care law, better known as Obamacare. Now, with complete GOP control of Congress and the White House, a path forward appears jeopardized by intra-party squabbling.
At least three Republican senators — enough to kill a bill — have said they won’t vote for a new GOP health bill that expands entitlements. And there are also rebellions in the House of Representatives, where any Republican plan to replace Obamacare is expected to originate.
