(Before It's News)

by Steve Watson, Infowars:

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul took the media on a literal ‘hunt’ for the legislation that is set to replace the Obamacare bill, and was refused access to a ‘secret’ room in which Paul claims the legislation is being held.

“I have been told that the House Obamacare bill is under lock & key, in a secure location, & not available for me or the public to view,” Paul tweeted earlier in the day, adding “This is unacceptable. This is the biggest issue before Congress and the American people right now.”

According to reports, the bill is locked away in a “dedicated reading room,” where members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee are able to read it.

As Bloomberg reports:

The move is said to be an effort to prevent leaks, however, Paul and others have claimed that it is really part of a ploy to prevent access to those who may disagree with significant portions of its content.

Taking to Twitter again, Paul claimed that the House leadership is attempting to cover up the fact that the bill is merely a watered down version of the original ObamaCare legislation, and does not constitute a full repeal: “I think that’s why it’s top secret,” he said. “Why don’t they want us to see it? The only copy we’ve seen is from the media — does that sound to you backwards?” Paul asked reporters.

“We saw a leaked copy that the media was given that we weren’t given,” he continued. “Now we’re told that it’s being classified, that the hearing is like a security clearance hearing, you have to have a clearance and permission.” Paul urged.

“This should be an open and transparent process,’ Paul added, saying “This is being presented as if it were a national secret, as if this was a plot to invade another country, as if this were national security. That’s wrong.”
