What is Senate Reconciliation?

Senate Democrats explain it:

Is it fair for a minority of senators to block an important bill? Most people would say no. That's why 30 years ago the Senate introduced a procedure known as "reconciliation" to ensure the democratic process would never come to a halt. Reconciliation allows for a simple up-or-down vote on a specific type of legislation -- if it reduces the budget deficit.
