Reconciliation: The Tyranny of Reid’s Majority

People who are pushing for Pelosicare, Reidcare or Obamacare will say reconciliation is a good and moral practice. They will site "Great" presidents who have used it. Or will they? Nobody printed on the US dollar has used it. Nobody who face is on a mountain has used it. No these people who are so honored warned against the tyranny of the majority and set in place protections against it - The 2/3rds rule. Reconciliation has been used to remove spending. It has been used to introduce changes to legislation. It has never been used to make massive changes in Government. Our greatest leaders never used it - Why would they? They were leaders not dictators.

2/3rds can be a difficult number. It is required to change the constitution or remove a president. Reconciliation was created to allow the congress to act quicker on small maters of state to prevent a filibuster. A filibuster requires 2/3rds to end it - It can be used at anytime but it is rarely used.

Our leaders have decided that 2/3rds may not be required to change 1/6th of our economy and impose a federal requirement that people must purchase insurance.
