    •  Senator Casey said something similar. He said (0+ / 0-)

      that if they went by the regular order, then, since the House has passed a budget and the Senate has passed a budget, then there would be a conference committee to work out the differences.

      Now, I'm not at all sure the Senate has actually passed a budget.  Did the budget proposed by Patty Murry's committee pass?

      But, assuming it did, how would they come up with anything better in "working out the differences," given that the Republican budget involves using an "expedited process" for dealing with Social Security?  The Republican budget doesn't say what the end result of that "expedited process" would be, but we know they want to privatize Social Security.
