Nowadays, Gregg and his Republican cronies have switched sides and sound exactly like the Democrats of 2005. Nowadays Republicans argue that using the Reconciliation process would pave the way to hell. It would be "an unprecedented, dangerous and historic mistake."
This is the utterly stupid two-party tyranny system at work. The Dems and Republicans simply take turns making the same moronic arguments over and over and over again. No wonder the two parties get nothing done over and over and over again. It's impossible to believe that we would have such an utterly dysfunctional and pathetic system of government if women had been permitted to have a hand in designing it. The idiots in charge are good for taking out the garbage, and that's about it.
