Shouldn't the "skinny repeal" have required 60 votes anyway?

I mean, it wasn't a budget matter but a social policy one.... thus the budget reconciliation process should not have applied?

2. I guess the days of filibustering are over.

3. Republicans can still filibuster.

We just aren't allowed to. Didn't you get the memo?

4. It would have gone to conference as well

where the house was planning to stick crap the senate wouldn't vote for back in it.

5. the fear was that it would *not* go to conference and the house would pass it as is

precisely to avoid any further disagreement with the senate.

6. I think the skinny repeal only included items that didn't need 60 votes

That is one reason it was so skinny.
