Senate GOP to hide health care bill from voters


Senate GOP to hide health care bill from voters


President Donald Trump slammed Democrats on Tuesday, saying they wouldn't even support the "the greatest bill in the history of the world on health care," amid the ongoing political fight over amending Obamacare. However, doubtful as it is that the Senate has concocted a bill even close to the greatest ever, it's going to be a while before anyone knows what it looks like, as Senate Republicans are keeping their version of the bill close to the vest.

Pres. Trump: “If we had the greatest bill in the history of the world on health care we wouldn’t get one vote from the Democrats.”

A draft of the Senate bill is expected to be finished soon, with no immediate plans to let the public see what’s in it, according to a Monday report at Axios, citing two Senate GOP aides.

"We aren't stupid," one of them told Axios. "We are still in discussions about what will be in the final product so it is premature to release any draft absent further member conversations and consensus."

Not only are Senate Republicans currently taking flak for the secrecy around the bill, but the lack of an open process for the first version of the bill in the House of Representatives was one of the leading factors behind the original health care legislation’s failure earlier this year.

And during the months-long debate over Obamacare almost eight years ago, then-Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., slammed the cloak-and-dagger tactics that led to the bill’s passage.

Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, has previously said that there will be a health care vote before the now-contested August recess, but the current goal appears to be before the July 4 recess, according to the Axios report.

In either case, with Congress’ notoriously light work schedule, it leaves precious little time for the Congressional Budget Office to score the legislation and then even less for the Senate to deliberate it before a vote.
