Already, Republican leaders are struggling to gather enough support from the party’s rank and file for their replacement bill or a straightforward repeal of the 2010 law, even though they are leveraging “budget reconciliation” rules to carve Democrats out of the process.

In new guidance, the Senate parliamentarian made their task tougher by saying key parts of the plan should require 60 votes to pass, according to Senate Democrats on the Budget Committee.

“The parliamentarian’s decision today proves once again that the process Republicans have undertaken to repeal the Affordable Care Act and throw 22 million Americans off of health insurance is a disaster,” Sen. Bernard Sanders, Vermont independent, said after detailing Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough’s findings on Friday.

    Funny how the parliamentarian brings up “reconciliation”. Where was he/she when the democrats basically rewrote the entire text of an already approved House Bill concerning “making it easier for veterans to obtain benefits” into the ACA while it was in the Senate and should of been sent back to the House for “reconciliation” due to the changing of the text? That’s right folks. After the democrats (read: Harry Reid) totally changed the text of a totally unrelated but approved bill IT WAS NEVER SENT BACK TO THE HOUSE which by law was supposed to be done. And because the Republicans never ever challenged that action was proof to me that they were in fact in favor of socialized medicine. They could all vote against it, which they did, so they could cover their a$$es with the public. Just research what it takes and what MUST be done when even a single word of the text of a bill is changed by either chamber. You will find what I am contending to be totally true.

    I’m in hopes Sanders gets to hear the sound of a jailhouse door closing. Excuse me, him and that rag he’s married to!
