It’s hard to say if this is truly an advantage. Although ObamaCare must be overturned, so much more needs to be done. America has to have the 60 in the Senate simply to erase the socialism. Almost a year and a half ago Kieth Hennessey wrote about senate GOP requiring a simple majority to repeal ObamaCare. Under Bush, he was the director of the National Economic Council. The 51 Senate votes would also require a House majority, and obviously Romney.
Keith wrote: “Reconciliation is a procedural tool primarily used to change spending and revenues, deficits and debt. Repeal of the subsidies, the individual mandate, the insurance provisions, and the Medicaid expansions would, in each case, directly affect spending and revenues, so it would be a straight-up-the-middle use of reconciliation for deficit reduction.”
He suggests focusing on big spending items only: “If I’m right, they could include in the reconciliation bill other spending cuts that more than offset the CBO-scored deficit increase. Technically, the Senate Budget Committee Chairman could also overrule CBO scoring, but why give Democrats the rhetorical advantage of a perceived process abuse? Republicans correctly insist that we need to slow spending growth, and they could here turn a tactical disadvantage into a legislative opportunity to further cut spending.”
Obama, the libs, and news media followers realize 60 votes are not required to repeal the new ObamaCare Tax. They firewall the truth, lie to the people, in an effort exert control, force people to accept the idea that the tax is here to stay. Your option in November, keep Obama or keep your Job.
