Reconciliation Regarding Obamacare

McCain Says Dem Use of "Reconciliation" Will Have "Cataclysmic Effects"

Good Morning America's George Stephanopoulos on Friday offered liberal spin for the issue of using reconciliation to pass the health care bill, a process that would allow legislation to go through the Senate with only 51 votes: "Reconciliation has been used for President Bush's tax cuts, for welfare reform, for other health care bills in the past."

Sen. John McCain on Good Morning America warning that if Democrats use the "Reconciliation Process" to jam ObamaCare through it will have "cataclysmic effects" in the U.S. Senate.
McCain said the "Reconciliation Process" has never been used for anything approaching "one-sixth of the Gross National Product." He also quoted Democrat Sen. Robert Byrd as saying it would be "an outrage" to use the process to jam Health Care through.


Reconciliation is on the table, and Gibbs long answer shows they have it in mind.



Obama 2 days ago, leaving the door wide open for Reconciliation


Wild Thing's comment.......

We ARE interested. It’s YOU Obama that doesn’t think we have the brains to understand what is going on. You are seriously mistaken. It’s liberal-speak for Americans aren’t bright enough to understand.

Obama: "I do think they want a vote...I think that most Americans think a majority vote makes sense".

Obama doesn't believe in rule by the majority or he'd listen to the majority of AMERICANS who say they don't want what he's selling.

Hot Damn! Robert Byrd woke up and criticized reconcilliation. obama is going to try to push it through regardless of the cost. I hope it fails and he loses in 2012 anyway.

Rep Louise Slaughter's ‘Has To Wear Her Dead Sister’s Teeth’ testimony at the televised Obama ‘healthcare summit.’ debacle yesterday reminded me of this excuse line:

'I got this aunt in Salinas, she lost both husbands in a flood' ~ Mack, from the movie Cannery Row.

No I don't give a rat's ass about the phony hard luck life stories these lying pricks put out. No más
