Congressman Dave Brat - Senate gave up reconciliation

    I just heard Congressman Brat on the radio.

    1. He voted against this bloated budget

    2. He said that the Senate gave up reconciliation so that it will need 60 votes. Thereby forcing them to work with democrats.

    3. He said if the economy grew at 2.75% the budget cuts would pay for themselves.

    Would someone explain why they would give up reconciliation if they are not planning to screw the base which elected them? this seems to mean they can not repeal and replace Obamacare and they will probably screw us on DACA with Democrats saying they to.

    If the above is true... please explain how they are not scum.
