Back in the day, say 4 or 5 years ago, then-Senator Obama had this to say about the so-called "Reconciliation" track:

Fast forward, say 4 or 5 years, and President Obama is singing a different tune:

"White House officials ... suggest that if it is necessary, Democrats will use the controversial "reconciliation" rules requiring only 51 Senate votes to pass the "fix" to the Senate bill, as opposed to the 60 votes to stop a filibuster and proceed to a vote on a bill."

Thanks for clearing that up.
