The Fix Needs a Fix

Where all the magic happens.Success!

Senate Republicans succeeded in finding something in the senate reconciliation package that the Senate Parliamentarian has ruled needs to be changed. I don’t have all the details yet, but it seems to be something having to do with the other part of the Senate bill that passed Obamacare. You know, the part about student loans. Apparently, two provisions guarantee that students won’t have their loans cut if the government cuts funding for student loans. Since that doesn’t result in cost savings, it can’t be taken up in budget reconciliation. The Senate plans to remove that portion today and pass the rest of the bill. But since something changed, it has to be voted on again in the House. More later.
