There is no mystery why Mitch McConnell, is trying to hurry the legislation to repeal major provisions of the Affordable Care Act. Opening it to scrutiny before a vote would be the congressional equivalent of exposing a vampire to sunlight. Says one aide: “We aren’t stupid.” Better to pass a terrible bill in the cover of darkness just as the House did with its version.' McConnell’s strategy belies the disingenuous GOP complaint that Democrats jammed the A.C.A., or Obamacare, into law in 2010 without sufficient analysis or discussion. This effort to undo the A.C.A. bears no resemblance whatsoever to that much more thorough exercise. Congress and the Obama administration spent a year on health care reform from March 2009 to March 2010.By contrast, instead of public drafts and hearings, we now have to settle for a series of leaks from Capitol Hill about what is or isn’t in the bill.'
