Your procedural workarounds in charts

This is the best chart summarizing the history of the reconciliation process. That would be true, I think, even if there were other charts summarizing the history of the reconciliation process. op-ed explaining the chart here.

Forget reconcilliation.

And forget the corrupt pay-offs to Senators from Louisiana and Nebraska.

The real story NOW is about INTIMIDATION OF CONGRESSMAN TO VOTE RAHM EMANUEL's way or get out of DC!

Compare the willful ignorance of Chris Dodd/Kent Conrad on taking sweetheart mortgage OR the tax delinquincy of Charlie Rangle.

BUT A DEMOCRAT CONGRESSMAN WHO VOTED 'NO' ON HEALTHCARE HAS TO FACE A HOUSE INVESTIGATION BECAUSE HE APPARENTLY SAID SOMETHING TO AN AIDE AT A NEW YEARS EVE PARTY!!!!

Is there any level that Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama won't stoop to to get SINGLE-PAYER TROJAN PASSED?

As we can see from this chart, pretty much nothing happens outside of the budget reconciliation process, since the Senate never has 60 votes for anything, save invading other countries and the paying for it.

Has no one else found it curious that the Democrats took control of both the House and Senate in 1997?
