it not a whole lot of details of what actully in this. Seem this news b'een lost in all the madnress this week

But it does make it  trough they will be able to get pass on reconcilation. Which means you cant fillibuster it. But apparently only if it doesnt go over 1.75 trillon to the defficet.  Under it, or add 17.5 trillon that ok

"The budget also includes reconciliation language that the energy committee could use to ease restrictions on oil drilling in the Arctic, so a bill that is brought up to do that also may not be filibustered.

Over the next 10 years, the budget calls for $473 billion in cuts from Medicare and $1 trillion from Medicaid. They are part of $5 trillion in cuts mentioned overall, but most are not specified."

Honestly, I'm kind of hoping that it faces the same problem as repeal because of that.
