Scalise: Every Member ‘Had More than Enough Time to Read’ Health Care Bill

‘Obviously some people that want ObamaCare to stay law don’t like this bill because they like ObamaCare’

RUSH EXCERPT:

SCALISE: "First of all, every member that voted on this bill had more than enough time to read every aspect of it. In fact, the total bill, which most of it had been online for weeks, even the changes that we made today were about three pages worth of changes. The whole bill is less than 200 pages, so everybody had more than enough opportunity. In fact, some people were criticizing us that wanted us to bring it up weeks ago. Some people wanted it brought up in the first 100 days which we would like to have done but the bill was not completed. More members want to make additional changes so we took extra time. In each step we took, each amendment we added in was online for days if not weeks. So everybody has had more than enough time to read the bill. Obviously some people that want ObamaCare to stay law don't like this bill because they like ObamaCare."
