A nice bit of righteous indignation from E.J. Dionne Jr. on the
"astonishing exercise in hypocrisy" that is the GOP's rabid opposition
to and shameless distortion of using reconciliation to pass amendments on health care. Just when you think they can't go any lower...    

"The underlying 'principle' here seems to be that it's fine to pass tax
cuts for the wealthy on narrow votes but an outrage to use
reconciliation to help middle-income and poor people get health
insurance."
