GUEST,Songbob BS: WWRD What Would Republicans Do? (49) RE: BS: WWRD What Would Republicans Do? 15 Nov 10


Reconciliation "can only be used once per term of Congress," so the conventional wisdom goes, and was used in the Health Care Reform scramble. Now, it's actually possible to use it again, since in actuality (as opposed to the VW) it can be used once per budget, and we're now in the 2011 budget year.

However, using it now ties the hands of the Congress till the next budget year (10/1/11) (or 1/10/11, for our Cousin John Bull), and getting agreement on doing that will make it extra hard to accomplish.

As for the general question, WWRD?, we had eight years of example to answer that one.
