The little-known tool Republicans will use if they win the Senate

If they seize control of the Senate this November, Republicans will use a little-known tool called “reconciliation” to get their way. Robert Reich explains in this new video from MoveOn.org. Please watch and share widely:

The Affordable Care Act itself was partly passed via reconciliation, and in 2012 the team planning a Romney presidency researched how much of it could be repealed the same way. Its answer: Quite a lot. The President would still be able to veto, but Republican Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell has also threatened to shut the government down again if he does.
