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

President Donald Trump addresses a joint session of Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington Tuesday Feb. 28 2017. Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis. listen

U.S. House committees plan to begin considering legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare next week, Republicans said Thursday after a closed-door meeting.

"We've got premiums skyrocketing, we've got insurers running for the exits, and even more people are going to be hurt if we get to the next open enrollment period and we haven't done anything to fix these problems", he maintains. Rand Paul blasting his Republican colleagues in the House for not letting him see a draft of their bill to repeal Obamacare.

Paul and two other senators, Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah, are displeased with the contents of the bill. He later called the whole thing "crazy".

And outside Congress, three prominent groups - FreedomWorks, Americans for Prosperity and Heritage Action for America - plan to increase pressure on lawmakers to repeal the law fully or risk retribution from the conservative grass roots. It's under lock and key, and we're not allowed to have a copy of it. "You have to take time to think through what it would mean for families". He was seen entering McCarthy's office at one point to see if it was in there. She wouldn't tell us anything really. "I don't think that's how the America process should work", he said. He then told reporters staking out the room that numerous proposals are "Democrat ideas wrapped up in Republican clothing" and he demanded that the legislation be debated openly and in public.

And with that, Hoyer leads the viewers through doors and down corridors, descending steps of Congress in search of this bill. That's why we are taking a step-by-step-approach to repeal and replace Obamacare with patient-centered reforms that give every American access to quality, affordable care.

He was even spotted gesturing at a bust of President Lincoln, saying that he is as disappointed in Lincoln's party as he would be, a Hoyer aide said.

Please let us know if anyone finds this bill. That's not regular order.

Where's the Republicans' embryonic health care bill? "And now we're told it's being classified and the hearing is like a security clearance hearing - you have to have security clearance and permission and have to be on the committee to see the bill".


Republicans on Thursday said that the Democratic hunt was ridiculous and that their members were still working on the legislation. The White House says he will release a proposal within the next few weeks.

"Simply put, Energy and Commerce majority members and staff are continuing to discuss and refine draft legislative language on issues under our committee's jurisdiction".

House Republicans were trying to keep their plan a secret because it is a very bad deal for the American people.

The latest survey found those who disapproved of the law were more heavily in favour of making amendments to the existing policy rather than repealing it entirely.

"It'd be good if we maybe had a sniffer dog", Schakowsky told reporters. Pallone's search was not successful. Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., claimed to have checked the men's room.

"I checked the men's room", Crowley said.

"It's the secret office for the secret bill", he said. It's not the way this process is supposed to be carried out. They also must figure out a way to protect patients with pre-existing conditions while scrapping the individual mandate that was meant to help buoy those costs. The bill is being worked on through the Energy and Commerce committee. Once again, no Walden.

He said he has a feeling that the bill will be kept secret until it gets to the House committees, and then it will come to the Senate without going through any committees there. He said it is simply another "entitlement with a Republican stamp on it".
