Tim, check your constitutional law. The 60 vote “requirement” is a procedural issue that the GOP-led Senate can bypass, if they actually have the will and the votes to. That’s not partisan, that’s just law. You can read more about it in any number of places, but a quite simple place to start is with news articles about the AHCA bogging down in the Senate itself:
One of the biggest challenges the House bill faces is that in order for it to be eligible for simple majority vote – instead of a 60-vote threshold usually required for major bills – it must meet special requirements under budget reconciliation rules.
The “requirements” of 60 votes are not requirements under the law. They are procedural hurdles that the GOP leadership can suspend, if they want to. The fact they aren’t willing to incur the political cost of suspending the rules (as they did for approving bench and SCOTUS appointments earlier this year) isn’t germane to the conversation. If they can get agreement within the GOP, they can pass AHCA with a simple majority in the Senate. They just don’t want to because they know it’s political suicide.
And that ain’t partisanship, that’s just fact. Regardless, I’m not a Democrat, so I don’t see the point of blowing off disagreement as “partisanship.” It’s OK to disagree. We disagree on this, which is fine. But don’t imply that the Democrats are standing in the way of a comprehensive health care bill. The GOP is able to do that, without having to compromise with the Democrats. The issue is that they can’t achieve compromises within their own party.
