Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul was turned away Thursday as he attempted to enter Room H157 in the Capitol to read Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) so-called Obamacare secret draft.
At the door of the Capitol room, the conservative senator, who has developed his own bill, along with members of the House Freedom Caucus, which is the House’s conservative bloc, said, “In my state of Kentucky, it is illegal to do this.” He added, “You can’t do this. You can’t have legislation locked behind closed doors in my state.”
Paul said the text of the speaker’s bill was being treated as if it were a national secret, such as a plot to invade another country. “It’s wrong.”
The senator, who is an eye surgeon, said the bill needs to be developed in public.
“Conservatives, who have objections, who don’t want Obamacare-lite should be able to see the bill,” he said.
FK – Once again the republicrats are hanging themselves. Only the next time the commies lie their way back in to power they won’t hold back. The result will be civil war. If it doesn’t kick off before then.
