Rick Santorum Doesn't Understand Congressional Rules: Says Reconciliation Is Cheating

Greta Van Susteren allows man-on-dog Rick Santorum to pretend that the Democrats changed the rules in the House of Representatives to get the health care bill passed and say "they cheated". This is particularly egregious since as a former member of the Senate, I'm fairly sure Santorum knows he's lying his ass off here.

The only measure that the House might have taken that was being questioned as violating House procedures that the Republicans were already way too fond of in the past was the "self-executing" rule, and they decided against using it and did the additional votes in both chambers of Congress to reconcile the health care bill instead.

How the Democrats "cheated" to get the bill passed is beyond me. Of course ClusterFox Republican stenographer Van Susteren is not going to point out that Santorum is lying to their sheeple that think her show is "news".
