    I think he was just spouting off - which he seems to be doing a little more these days. I love the guy, but sometimes he seems a little confused. I thought Reconciliation could only be used to 'reconcile' differences between house and senate bills that have been passed and only if such reconiliation has no fiscal impact. But, the determination of whether it can be used or not ultimately depends on who is deciding whether it has fiscal impact.

    As to filibusters, Reid says he''s gonna try to change the rules this next session. We'll see.

    If the Republicans get control of both houses the first thing they'll do is change the name of the institution to the Reichstag and then they'll change the filibuster rules.
