44. Yes Yes Yes

Normally the Senate parliamentarian gives "advice" on whether a section of a bill is legal or not

Here the Senate parliamentarian is giving their "opinion" if this section of a bill passes the "byrd rule" or not, while it is called a "rule", the "byrd rule" is a LAW adopted in 1985 and amended in 1990

Overruling a parliamentarian does not suddenly make the section of the bill pass the "byrd rule". If the VP overrules the parliamentarian the GQP will just take the bill to court, and if the court agrees with the parliamentarian & GQP the court would at least strip out the $15 an hour but could throw the whole bill out


BTW
A VP has NEVER overruled a parliamentarian in a reconciliation bill. 1st time a reconciliation bill passed congress was the Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1980, the last time a parliamentarian was overruled was in 1975 on a point of order issue, not legality issue.
