Since when has our government become a government that is ruled by only one party. Invoking the use of the reconciliation process makes our government a government that is only ruled by one party. If we're going to go down that road then let's just declare that our country be ruled by a dictator and be done with it. All proposed legislation should be required to pass by 60 votes, especially legislation as substantial as tax reform or health care. The reconciliation process holds our democracy hostage to one party, thus denying that the American people are truely being represented.
