Biden has a special purpose

Former Senate parliamentarian Robert Dove, a guy who’s been getting a lot of exposure lately, says that the vice president, in his role as president of the Senate, can overrule the parliamentarian’s calls on what provisions fit under reconciliation rules and which don’t — a fact that could fundamentally alter the floor debate should Democrats use the maneuver to bypass Republicans’ filibuster threat.
“The parliamentarian only can advise, it is the vice president who rules,” Dove said in an interview on MSNBC.
