Paul complained that the ObamaCare bill was being kept in a “secret location.” He then walked over to the House side with a copy machine in tow to seek access to a room where he said the bill was being held.
His move quickly created a spectacle, with reporters gathering around Paul for an impromptu press conference.
“We want to see the bill. We have many objections,” Paul said outside of the room.
“We’re here asking for a written copy of this because this should be an open and transparent process.”
Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.), the chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee, pushed back on accusations that the process is being kept secret.
“Reports that the Energy and Commerce Committee is doing anything other than the regular process of keeping its members up to speed on latest developments in its jurisdictions are false. We are continuing to work on drafting and refining legislative language to provide relief from a failing law,” Walden said in as statement.
