About that reconciliation thing...

From Say It Ain't So Already:

When You Hear Republicans Whine About Reconciliation — Remember This

Between 1981 and 2009, 22 bills have been passed through reconciliation.  Eight of the bills were initiated by a Democratic-controlled Congress.  The rest, 14, were done by a Republican-controlled Congress.  So the Republicans have used reconciliation almost twice as much as Democrats.   They have no basis upon which to complain.  It’s all an act.  Period.  End of story.
Now let’s move on.

Base, Doug, not basis. As in little or no value.
