Reconciliation has been used for health care legislation like COBRA health insurance, sCHIP children's health coverage, and Medicare/Medicaid health care in 5 out of the total 22 times that Reconciliation was used. That is nearly a quarter of all Reconciliation bills!

COBRA health insurance program is itself is actually just short for "Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985".

It simply isn't credible to say that Reconciliation can't be used for health care issues, when it has historically already been used repeatedly.
