HuffPo is reporting that Senator Jeff Bingaman (D-NM) is prepared to break from the Gang of Six negotiations and vote to pursue the budget reconciliation process which would allow senators to approve the more contentious parts of the Health Insurance Reform legislation to pass through with a 51+ majority vote thus overriding any possibility of a filibuster (at least in theory, there are still some concerns about using this move for non-budgetary legislation).

Thats all I have for now, will update post once I hear more details. 😎
