Thanks to "budget reconciliation" -- which cannot be filibustered -- Reid doesn't need to change the rules to gain passage of tax legislation.

The so-called "Bush tax cuts" were passed under budget reconciliation, with a simple majority vote, so they can be renewed (or changed) without facing a filibuster.
