VIDEO: Kettle, It's Pot You're Black; Sen. Boxer On GOP Objection To Reconciliation

Reconciliation is a legislative process of the United States Senate intended to allow a contentious budget bill to be considered without being subject to filibuster.

Budget bills require 60 votes to pass the Senate, however, reconciliation would reduce that number to 51 making it impossible for Republicans to stop the Obama/Pelosi/Reid socialist take-over of America.

Socialist Spendocrats like Boxer are trying to use reconciliation to pass both Obama's National Healthcare plan and his job-killing Cap and Trade energy plan.

Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY) says reconciliation on a health care bill would be the equivalent of a "declaration of war".

Boxer's assault on past GOP reconciliation efforts is a childish display. These libs are so full of crap, it's painful to watch at times.

They continue to blatantly try to re-write the rules to pass their radical agenda.

The Hill reports:

"There is an interest in not taking any tools off the table," Sebelius said in response to a request by committee ranking member Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) that she reject reconciliation.

Enzi replied that if Democrats use reconciliation, which would enable them to pass a healthcare bill with just 51 votes rather than the 60 normally required in the Senate, it would be the equivalent of a "declaration of war" on the minority.

"I know that the president is very dedicated to having a bipartisan process for health reform," Sebelius said.
