The Obama Administration and congressional Democrats plans to use reconciliation to ram through ObamaCare is an unprecedented and remarkable abuse of power. Heritages government relations expert Brian Darling lays out how reconciliation is used largely for budgeting items like raising the nations debt limit. But taking on something as large as health reform is something Congress has never done with the parliamentary tactic. Furthermore, lawmakers are scheming to use reconciliation so they can amend a health reform bill that has yet to pass Congress. The bottom line is that Congress needs to scrap ObamaCare and start over with measures that actually have bipartisan support.
