Reconciliation Bill to Return to the House

While the Republicans have virtually no hope of stopping ObamaCare and the reconciliation fix from passing at this time, I do take some pleasure in the fact that the GOP was able to force another vote in the House.  Senate Republicans obtained a favorable ruling from the Senate Parliamentarian yesterday, who ruled that provisions related to the expansion of Pell Grants were in violation of the Budget Act.  So the Democrats, who were hoping to avoid another vote in the House, now have to re-pass the legislation.  I’m hopeful that once it gets back to the Senate, the GOP find more provisions such as this, and are able to prolong this reconciliation fix and make it painful for the Senate to push it through.
