Your reading comprehension ain't what it used to be.
1. You compared the nuclear option as proposed by the Republicans to the current situation when the comparison is invalid.
2. You compared using reconciliation in the current matter to its use for the tax cuts. Again, the comparison is invalid.
3. If you believe reconciliation is the proper way to go, I suggest you ask Sen Byrd, the author of the Byrd rules which govern the reconciliation process.
