“When we had a Republican president and House and Senate, we kept on spending massively and adding almost a trillion dollars a year to the national debt.

Republicans have said the process, which would effectively sideline the 50 GOP senators, would fail to live up to Biden’s calls for unity. But Romney noted that Republicans used the procedure to pass broad tax cuts in 2017.

“There’s no question that if you begin doing things which break precedent or break tradition, the other side is going to do that when they’re in charge,” he said. “When we’ve put a tax program on that basis that did not require any Democrat votes through reconciliation, we have a difficult time explaining why we’re not happy with what they would be doing at this stage.”
