Debunking GOP Talking Points on Reconciliation

Andrew Romano of Newsweek debunks seven arguments against using reconciliation to pass the revisions to health care reform. The fact that reconciliation is being used not to pass health care reform itself (which already passed in both houses of Congress) but to make revisions after the House passes the Senate version, is the second item on his list.

Besides debunking the GOP arguments against using reconciliation, he warns that they could have one valid argument–reconciliation can only be used for budget-related matters. Of course health care affects a large part of the budget and there already is plenty of precedent for using reconciliation to pass health care legislation (which is the third item on his list).
