reconciliation means a budget bill can be passed with just a majority vote. the republicans had control of all three branches of government in trump's first two years. do you think it's more lip service that they are the party of fiscal restraint? in fact, if you look at the last forty or fifty years, the deficit went down more during democratic presidents than republican. probably because republicans can get democrats to agree on some restraint, but repubilcans don't want to be retaliated against for restraint when they are in charge. 

republicans don't have a lot going for em. if they dont have the fiscal restraint thing, it's a pretty bad situation.

Congress has agreed to do nothing until they get a 6th mansion.

Republicans have a lot going for them.You cant look at congressional power, but the federal agencies. Republicans dominate as well as they gained control of the SCOTUS with Kavanaugh
