    As Ezra Klien points out, At the time Gregg made this statment, Dems were pushing against re-conconciliation. It's amazing how both sides of the aisle support things when it will help them but oppose them when it helps the other side. Although I can see why Dems tried to block the use of re-conciliation on Republican agenda than Republicans blocking Healthcare Reform that includes many of their proposals from times past.

    Yeah. Except the Republicans did NOT use reconciliation to get judges approved.
    Democrats will try to use it to take control of 1/6th of the economy.
    See the difference?

    If Democrats do this--it will be the end of them for many decades.
    We are not talking about budgetery concerns which has been used in the past. We are talking about something that will affect every American in this county & 6% of this entire economy.

    And here is the reason why: Paul Ryan's comments

    so who the fuck made Ryan the last word on reconciliation, because it appears you repubs seem to be able to bend it whenever it fits your agenda

    Seriously, is there something you guys don't understand? Why is it you seem unable to tell the difference between a budget bill and system changing legislation? It's really not that difficult.
