GOP takes heat for ObamaCare secrecy

GOP takes heat for ObamaCare secrecy
At The Hill by Peter Sullivan -- 

House Republicans are coming under growing pressure to release their ObamaCare repeal and replace plan ahead of committee markups that could begin next week.
Even some Republican lawmakers are criticizing their party for the lack of access to the House Energy and Commerce Committee's draft bill, which is apparently being kept in a designated room in the Capitol where entry is limited to certain members.

“We want to see the bill. We have many objections,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) told a swarm of reporters Thursday as he tried to get into the room where he thought the bill was located. “We're here asking for a written copy of this because this should be an open and transparent process.”

Paul has serious objections to multiple elements of the House GOP plan and is threatening to oppose the measure if it includes them.
