Is reconciliation still on the table?

Wow. I mean, just wow...
"In comments reported by Congress Daily, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s top health care aide Wendell Primus admitted top Democrats have already decided on the strategy to pass the Senate's pro-abortion, government-run health care bill.

"Primus explained that the Senate will use the controversial reconciliation strategy that will have the House approve the Senate bill and both the House and Senate okaying changes to the bill that the Senate will sign off on by preventing Republicans from filibustering.

“'The trick in all of this is that the president would have to sign the Senate bill first, then the reconciliation bill second, and the reconciliation bill would trump the Senate bill,' Primus said at the National Health Policy Conference hosted by Academy Health and Health Affairs.

“'There's a certain skill, there's a trick, but I think we'll get it done,' he said."
I've been predicting, for some time now, that the Republicans were going to take back the House of Representatives in November, but that the Senate was probably out of reach. If this happens, the Senate becomes not only in reach, but likely.

It's difficult to imagine a bigger expression of contempt to the voting public than this would represent...
