It has just been pointed out to me the declaration of Obamacare’s individual mandate’s teeth (the tax) is not subject to filibuster but can be passed by a simple majority in the Senate because is a tax. Taxes are subject to the reconciliation process which require only a majority vote. Hmmmm. Is Robert’s a genius?
Please let me know if anyone knows if this is true or not. If so, GOP winning the Senate races in FL., ND, WI, MO, MT, and VA are more than enough to give Romney the votes to over-turn Obamacare. I was thinking we’d have to get to 55 GOP Senators and either draw five Dem’s up for re-election in 2014 or wait until after that election. Maybe brighter times are coming.
