Republican lies about reconciliation


The next time you hear some Republican say that Democrats are using the budget reconciliation process to ram through health insurance reform and that is an unprecedented use of it that affects 1/6 of our economy, know this:


Not only have they used it for gigantic, party line votes themselves, the way it will be used for health insurance reform is very small. Congress will pass the Senate version that passed with a SUPER MAJORITY and then reconciliation will be used for very small fixes of that legislation.

Do NOT let these lies get perpetuated. Republicans are desperate and freaking out and, like a cornered wild animal they are using desperate measures and are behaving erratically and unpredictably in response. Fight back so that we can prevail in this historic fight.

I’m just sayin’…
