    She's currently documenting reconciliation- and the Republicans using it and passing bills only because Cheney broke the tie.


    Something to keep in mind when they call it unconstitutional.

    i don't think they call it unconstitutional. but they act like it's somehow 'not fair'.

    ... unless of course THEY do it.

    Rachel did a great job.

    "the Constitution intends the opposite"
    -Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT)

    Former Reconciliation Supporter Hatch Attacks Reconciliation As Unconstitutional | TPMDC

    Limbaugh declares reconciliation "not constitutional" | Media Matters for America

    Not surprisingly, the Dems (the other head on the same beast) has said the same kinda shit in the past.

    Rachel rocks. She has given the Cons fits recently. Nothing like seeing them on tape doing the things they condemn.

    didn't hear hatch and don't listen to limbaugh. but what I have heard is that reconciliation is supposed to be limited to matters of budget. I say let the demons do "reconcilliation" and then we can watch the explosions that follow and learn a little thang or two or three.

    It is a misuse of a procedure in the senate that was never meant for a big social program like this. Nor was it ever used for one by the GOP.
    Rachel Maddow is an ugly dyke. No wonder you like her.
