The Final Run
Obama and the democrats in Washington have decided that they will do something called Reconciliations. What this means is that in order to pass the bill you do not need 60 out of the 100 votes to pass this bill. The problem with this way is that it takes longer time untill you can vote on it unlike the regular way. Time the president may not have considering a political up rise with the tea party movement and the criticism that he has spend to much time on health care. I personally believe that this is how it should work always a 51 majority rules bases. The funny thing is that in 2001 when democrats apposed the tax cuts of Bush. the republican use reconciliation to pass it, and democrats scowled at them for using "sneaky tricks", but the Republicans say that they believe that a 51 majority rules does work. Then on Obama Health care Democrats have changed their tunes and said they believe in majority rules, but Republicans are screaming at the president that he is "cheating the system". It all seems as politics as usual on Capitol Hill.
