WASHINGTON - Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) delivers the Republican response to President Barack Obama's address on health care reform at the U.S. Capitol March 3, 2010.

News broke Monday evening that Senate Republicans were apparently working on a repeal to the Affordable Care Act without plans to share drafts of it with other lawmakers or the public. The bill is expected to be sent to the Congressional Budget Office for scoring soon, and a vote before July 4 has been promised.

The secrecy and fast-tracking has angered many Democrats, who want more say and sunlight in the process.
