Here is audio of Democrat Rep. James Clyburn telling liberal talk show host Bill Press that the “way forward” on Health Care Reform is to use the “Reconciliation Process” to pass a bill “as an Easter Basket.” It also has audio of multiple other Democrats saying the same thing, that the use of the “Reconciliation Process” to pass a bill of some kind is a definite option. The “Reconciliation Process” has also been called the “Nuclear Option,” and Democrats howled at even the suggestion of Republicans using that process to get Judicial Nominees approved during the Bush Administration. It was not used, but now Democrats seem to have no qualms at using it to push through ObamaCare. Such a process only requires 50 votes to pass a bill (plus VP Joe Biden), and bypasses the possibility of a filibuster by the GOP.
