Democrat Senator Byrd

*The author of reconciliation cries “foul.” Here's what Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) has to say about using “reconciliation” to ram Obamacare through the Senate. You might share this quote with some friends: “I was one of the authors of the legislation that created the budget ‘reconciliation’ process in 1974, and I am certain putting healthcare reform and climate change legislation on a freight train through Congress is an outrage that must be resisted.... The misuse of the arcane process of reconciliation—a process intended for deficit reduction—to enact substantive policy changes is an undemocratic disservice to our people and to the Senate's institutional role.... Essentially it says ‘take it or leave it’ to the citizens who sent us here to solve problems, and it prevents members from representing their constituents interests.”
