    Rachel Maddow Show

    If you watch this, the host shows clips of GOP leaders speaking out of all sides of their mouths. Even better...she shows FOX News news programs doing what they say only opinion shows do...take partisan swipes and feed propaganda.

    I am no great fan of the host, but the facts speak for themselves.

    :evil:

    GOP says reconciliation should not be used for an entitlement issue.

    1) deficit reduction act 2005 with VP Cheney making tie breaking vote....issue? medicaid...entitlement. reconciliation used

    2) 1989 Omnibus budget reconciliation act. issue: medicare doctor payment system overhauled.

    Dems need to use reconciliation to pass ObamaCare only because I've never seen a political party lose 100 House seats in a single election

    That alone will make it worthwhile

    Wow....I used to think you had a little brains and were merely a shameless troll. Now I'm certain you're a stone schmuck.

    Medicare/Medicaid spending issues are over budgetary consideration of entitlement legislation that has already been passed, not passage of it in and of itself.

    I'd expect that such a distinction would get past a mouth-breather like rdean or sallybooboo...But really. :lol::lol::lol:

    all of a sudden, nuance is important and reconciliation is bad?

    I see. Wingnut dis-ease.

    :cuckoo:

    Republicans and conservatives are for reconciliation before they are against it. It's all clear now

    You are either a stone dope or acting like one on purpose.

    I'm starting to lean toward the former.

    The Repubs have used reconcilliation 14 times since 1980, the Dems have used it 8 times. Just to be fair, I think we should use it at least six more times this year.
