Bond On Reconciliation

Kit Bond is referring to the move by majority leader Harry Reid to force a simple majority vote established only for budget bills. Reid publicly denied democrats were discussing budget reconciliation to pass healthcare just a few weeks ago. Bond calls the maneuvering on bills that have been rejected by citizens in dozens of polls "Outrageous". Missouri democratic senator Claire McCaskill says the procedure of reconciliation is not the problem, but what's in it that matters.
