Obama was reported to made agreements that he would ban the abortion funding from the government which has added democratic party votes in favor of the legislation.

"We owe it to the American people to do the very best we can to keep this bill from passing so that we can start over and get it right," said McConnell.

Byrd and Pelosi

(Best Syndication News) Republicans are angry because Democrats may use the reconciliation process to bypass a possible filibuster in the Senate. A budget reconciliation may allow the measure to pass with a simple majority, even without any Republican votes.

First introduced in 1974, reconciliation is a process intended to allow consideration of a contentious budget bill without the threat of filibuster. It limits debate in the Senate preventing a Senator or group of Senators from halting the process through an extended debate on the proposal. A filibuster could go on for days.
