13. Or 50 votes + Pence to abolish the filibuster and then pass it...

...but it’s unclear if they could get that many for a “nuclear option.”

12. I believe it has to do with spending

If there is no expenditure, only 51 votes needed. If there are expenditures and they are offset by raising revenue, only 51 needed. But if there is no offsetting revenue, 60 votes are needed.

I think.
