Just to add, Byrd Rule is NOT self-enforcing. A senator has to raise a point of order before a provision can be considered for Byrd Rule.

Most likely, Republicans will raise a point of order for immigration and climate change.

I didn't know that. Good to know.

I will also add that if a section fails under the Byrd rule then it's basically crossed out and the rest of the bill can proceed. I mean hell imagine an entire bill thousand page bill getting tossed? Nobody could pass shit using that thing. I am also not sure if the contentions are raised in a group or one by one, but ultimately that doesn't matter, the decisions are on section by section basis.
