Sen. Marco Rubio on Sunday cautioned against fashioning health care legislation “behind closed doors” in the Senate and rushing it to the floor for a vote.

“The Senate is not a place where you can just cook up something behind closed doors and rush it for a vote on the floor,” the Florida Republican said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

“Every camera in the world’s going to have to see what’s in it,” he said.

Rubio was responding to remarks from his colleague, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), who took issue with the clunky process of moving a health care proposal in the Senate.

“I want to know exactly what’s in the Senate bill. It’s not a good process,” Johnson said recently.

Rubio added that while he doesn’t take issue with the ongoing meetings about new health-care legislation, the final version “cannot be rushed to the floor.”

“Ultimately,” he said, “we’re all going to see what’s in it.”
