Gotta Love Rand Paul ... Screw ObamaCare Lite

Saturday night yowls, dancing Big Cat Beauties ... okay then, the slimeazoid Republican leadership is busy HIDING the TRUTH from WE THE PEOPLE, per usual ... Top moron-psychopath Paul Ryan is doing everything in his despicable power to KEEP SCREWING the people with a Fed healthcare system that is being described as ObamaCare Lite ... of course, what ALWAYS happens in these times is that whenever they replace a bill, IT'S ALWAYS WORSE than the bill before it ... WE THE PEOPLE need and deserve REAL Healthcare ... not a system designed for BIG PHARMA and the FASCIST INSURANCE INDUSTRY ... not a bill that will SERVE THE DARKSIDE TECHNO GLOBALISTS, who want most of us dead, dead, dead.



Legislation being kept locked away in secret room


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.
The document is being treated a bit like a top-secret surveillance intercept. It is expected to be available to members and staffers on the House Energy and Commerce panel starting Thursday, but only in a dedicated reading room, one Republican lawmaker and a committee aide said. Nobody will be given copies to take with them.
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.”
Paul was denied entry to the reading room, and a staffer told him that he could not see a copy of the new Obamacare bill.
Paul fears that the new bill is “too elaborate now,” and objects to entitlement programs that he says have been added in by GOP leaders.
“We can be done in a week with repeal of Obamacare, if they’ll give us the repeal we voted previously.” Paul said, warning that it was this kind of tampering that doomed Obamacare to begin with.
The Senator has touted his own replacement healthcare bill, saying it would lower costs and save Americans money.
“We do have a replacement bill, and I would put it forward on the exact same day. And this replacement bill that we have, would lower insurance cost. That’s what the president mentioned in his speech. We want less expensive insurance for everybody in the country.” Paul stated.
Party leaders are concerned that conservatives will find the new bill too unappealing because the intricacies will mean it ends up costing as much if not more than Obamacare.

What Are Republicans Hiding In Obamacare Replacement Plan?

(ANTIMEDIARemember when Nancy Pelosi famously declared, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it?” She was, of course, referring to the Affordable Care Act, AKA Obamacare, and was justly skewered by “conservatives” at the time for the outlandish statement. Fast forward seven years, and now it’s the Republicans doing the exact same thing.
The GOP has chosen to conceal the text of what may become the replacement for Obamacare. Not only can you – someone the bill will most definitely affect – not read it. Members of the U.S. Senate are not even allowed to see what is contained in the legislation.
Senator Rand Paul, who is advocating for a complete repeal of the ACA, has made repeated attemptsto view what he refers to as “Obamacare Lite,” but has still been unable to get his hands on a copy of the bill. The Kentucky senator has even gone so far as to wheel a copy machine to where he was told the bill was being housed. Paul, a Republican, was denied access.
The secrecy should be enough to alarm citizens across the U.S. and cause the public to demand to see what kind of health care reform may be about to be shoved down their throats. But what Senator Paul believes the bill contains is the most distressing part of this story.
“When we heard it was secret, we wanted to see it even more because if something is secret, you do worry that people are hiding things,” Paul said speaking to CNN.
He continued:
“What we think is being hidden from conservatives is that there’s a lot of Obamacare lite in their bill. There’s a new entitlement program that will increase at about 5 percent a year forever. There is also a Cadillac tax, or something similar to the Cadillac tax that was in ObamaCare. And there’s also an individual mandate, believe it or not. Instead of paying the mandate to the government, they’re going to tell you that you have to pay the mandate by law to an insurance company.”
So basically, If you like being fined by the government for not purchasing a service, you’re going to be able to keep your fine — except instead of paying a penalty to the government, you’ll pay a private corporation.
Sounds like more of the same from Washington, but worse.

Today my staff and @randpaulcopier continued the search for the secret House Leadership Obamacare Lite bill

There were some obvious places to look. Perhaps near the statues of some great Republicans from the past.

This is harder than it should be. But wait. I think someone left us a hint!

They went outside and thought maybe this guy was helping House leaders hide it. But nope.
