Hope! Tax Repeal Can’t be Filibustered

I hope this is true. From Red State:

With John Roberts’ opinion, the repeal fight takes place on GOP turf, not Democrat turf.  The all or nothing repeal has always been better ground for the GOP and now John Roberts has forced everyone onto that ground.  Oh, and as I mentioned earlier, because John Roberts concluded it was a tax, the Democrats cannot filibuster its repeal because of the same reconciliation procedure the Democrats used to pass it.

In other words, a simple majority.

But wait, if a tax repeal can’t be filibustered, then it simply won’t be a tax again.  That’s the nature of our postmodern government today.  Also, that won’t get rid of the most awful of the awfulness–centralized bureaucratic control.

Limited government is dead. Long live the technocracy!
