‘Budget reconciliation’ still part of health bill strategy discussions The Hill reports: Talk about using budget reconciliation to pass healthcare reform in the Senate has faded from public view, but Democratic leaders continue to hang the threat over centrists in private.

On Saturday, Nov. 21, three centrists, Sens. Ben Nelson , Mary Landrieu and Blanche Lincoln , voted to commence debate, despite weighty pressure from Republicans and conservative groups to oppose it. Nelson wrote in an op-ed the other day that he voted for the motion to avoid the chance of Reid bringing healthcare legislation to the floor under spending budget reconciliation.Continuing to review suPAR Experts are continuing to review suPAR to identify types of the proteins that are associated with different types of chronic kidney disease.

FSGS, referred to as kidney scarring disease also, attacks newly transplanted kidneys sometimes within hours of the procedure.
