Hey, Brainless! Did You Eat Memory Loss For Breakfast?
So Mr. Alexander isn't for reconciliation, huh? Let's see what his voting record says:
2003, Mr. Alexander votes for the Bush tax cuts (Measure title: To provide for reconciliation pursuant to section 201 of the concurrent resolution on the budget for fiscal year 2004).
2005, Mr. Alexander votes for the deficit reduction act, which cut money from the Medicaid budget (Measure title: An original bill to provide for reconciliation pursuant to section 202(a) of the concurrent resolution on the budget for fiscal year 2006 (H. Con. Res. 95).
And those are just two examples. He also voted for the Tax Increase and Reconciliation Act of 2005, providing for tax cuts on capital gains and dividends.
Perhaps he was right when he said reconciliation has never been used for something like this. He only likes to use reconciliation when it helps his rich Republican friends, not regular Americans like us.
