Judd Greggg Today:
Gregg (N.H.), the senior Republican on the Budget Committee, told The Hill in a recent interview that Republicans will wage a vicious fight if Democrats try to circumvent Senate rules and use a budget maneuver to pass a trillion-dollar healthcare plan with a simple majority.
Judd Gregg speaking in favor of using Budget Reconciliation to ram through drilling in ANWAR in 2005:
"We are using rules of the Senate here. Is there something wrong with majority rules? I don't think so."
SO when they do it to ram through their agenda, it's simply the "rules of the senate" and theres nothing wrong with it. When we try to do it, It is "circumventing" those rules.
Will the media call him out on this, or will they continue to paint reconcilation the way Republicans want them to, as a way of "cheating"? I'm not holding my breath.
