Specter: I Will Support Reconciliation On HCR As A Last Resort
I was on a call with Senator Arlen Specter today and I asked him if the Senate did not invoke cloture for a health care reform bill with a public option, would he support the use of reconciliation for passage of budget germane items while leaving non-budget germane items for passage through regular order.
Senator Specter stated that while he did not think it would come to that he would, "as a last, last, last resort," support the use of reconciliation for passage of health care reform with a public option.
Other matters were covered, in particular regarding the Supreme Court. I will write a detailed post on that later.
