“Republicans have been trying to set up a meeting with Senate Democrats since yesterday to discuss this fatal point of order but have been met with nothing but silence. We suspect Democrats are slow walking us so as to have the House vote first. Since Senate Democrats refuse to meet with us and the Parliamentarian, we’ve informed our colleagues in the House that we believe the bill they’re now considering violates the clear language of Section 310g of the Congressional Budget Act, and the entire reconciliation bill is subject to a point of order and rejection in the Senate should it pass the House."

THIS bill goes straight to the president. Once signed it goes into affect. There is a SECOND bill of amendments to THIS bill that the house is ALSO voting on. THAT bill has to go to the senate for approval. BUT the big bad UGLY one...the only hope of turning IT around is it being deemed unconstitutional.
