From CNN Politics:

James Wallner, a senior fellow of the R Street Institute and former executive director of the Senate Steering Committee under Republican senators, said both parties tend to structure process for bills like this to leave room to point fingers when it all falls apart.
“I can’t even remember the last time the Senate had an open process,” Wallner said. “McConnell, temperamentally, he’s not one to let go and let it play out however it plays out. He likes to control things, and my guess is he will structure the floor process in some way that allows him to exert some level of control.”
