Ever heard of double reconciliation? No and no one else did either before Nov 9th.

Be prepared for GOP policies being ramrod-ed through. More dirty tricks from the GOP.

GOP To Use Previously Unheard Of Tactic To Slam Dunk Trump Agenda

The Republican congressional leadership is seriously considering an unprecedented procedure to guarantee that its and President-elect Donald Trumpís highest priorities are quickly enacted soon after Congress convenes next year.

The key is ďreconciliation,Ē the part of the congressional budget process that allows highly controversial policies to be considered in the Senate without any possibility of them being filibustered.

But reconciliation by itself isnít the unprecedented procedure; itís the novel way the leadership plans to use reconciliation: For the first time in the 4-plus decadesí history of the congressional budget process, reconciliation may occur twice in the same year.

Theoretically, two reconciliations in the same year are legally impossible because the Congressional Budget Act only allows one set of reconciliation instructions per budget resolution.
