With Senate Democrats losing their majority but still able to muster enough troops to mount successful filibusters, Republicans are eyeing another tactic in their uphill fight to dismantle Obamacare.

It’s known as reconciliation, and despite the collaborative-sounding name, it’s anything but. Part of the budget process, it’s a powerful but unwieldy tool that the majority can use to push its issues through Congress with only majority votes in either chamber, thus evading the roadblock of a filibuster in the Senate.

    When the Dems threatened to use that tactic, the Republicans called it the “nuclear option”. If the right decides to go that route, it will be the sign of a VERY bad start to this Congress. Because they know they don’t have enough votes to override a certain veto, and from then on, they’ll get absolutely NO cooperation from the left.
