    There can be only one reconciliation bill this year.  If the Student Loan Reform isn't included, it can't be passed until next year.

      budget resolution, I mean.  Which in real life means it's likely dead for this Congress, because there aren't 60 votes in the Senate.

      nicely. NO

      Can we for once please keep a bill clean and focused on the job it is supposed to do as opposed to things it is not.

      While I fully agree with the student loan overhaul this isn't the place to do it.

      In the choice between changing ones mind and proving there's no need to do so, most people get busy on the proof.

      ..resurrecting the Integral Fast Reactor program, too while we're at it. A couple of billion would do nicely.

      Moderation in most things. Except Reactors. IFR forever!
