What Republicans might do when they get control of the Senate if Democrats trigger Nuclear option
Senate Republicans are threatening to use the nuclear option to repeal ObamaCare and make other major legislative changes if Democrats use it to confirm judicial nominations.
Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), a former member of the GOP leadership close to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), has assembled an agenda Republicans would pursue with the nuclear option if they retake control of the upper chamber.
It includes repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act, converting all federal education spending into school vouchers and scholarships to middle-income and low-income children, opening up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas drilling and repealing the estate tax. . . .
