President Trump Sides With Democrats on 3 Month Debt-Limit Fix & Harvey Aid … Message Sent to McConnell and Ryan

 

THE ART OF THE DEAL …

Hmm, so what must the MSM think of this bipartisan deal? As reported at Bloomberg, President Donald Trump sided with Democrats on adding a three-month extension of the U.S. debt limit and government spending to a hurricane-relief bill. Republicans Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan  wanted a longer debt extension that would push the time limit past the midterm elections. How brave of you. If you think this is a mini “FU” to McConnell and Ryan for not passing the President’s agenda, you would be correct. If you think this is a shot across the political bow of McConnell and Ryan to get their act together and start governing as if they were in the majority, you would be correct again. What will the liberal MSM think of such a bipartisan deal? However, a note to Republicans and conservatives, don’t think that this is a complete pivot of the Trump presidency, this all part of the art of the deal. Personally, I think its brilliant. Trump just made establishment Republicans like McConnell and Ryan irrelevant. Trump just showed the LEFT that despise him that he can be bipartisan. Trump just put the MSM in a quandary as to how they can report negative Trump stories 24/7.

To my fellow conservatives don’t let your heart be troubled. Think long term. What really was done here that is being billed as the bipartisan bill of the century? Trump kicked the debt limit fix down the road that will have to be dealt with again and he funded Hurricane Harvey aid that was going to be passed anyhow. And? In the process he showed McConnell and Paul Rino who is boss, he demonstrated his ability to make deals and get the job down. However, don’t think that Trump will not use this to his advantage against establishment Republicans, Democrats and the MSM in the future.

Trump just otherized McConnell & Ryan

President Donald Trump sided with Democrats on adding a three-month extension of the U.S. debt limit and government spending to a hurricane-relief bill over the arguments of fellow Republicans, who pressed for a longer debt extension.

Senate Republicans released a new version of a Harvey aid bill late Wednesday that includes the debt ceiling extension and would fund the government through Dec. 8. It also nearly doubles the total disaster funding to $15.25 billion from what the House passed earlier in the day. The additional funding would go toward the Community Development Block Grant program to address housing needs in disaster zones.

Trump, after meeting with congressional leaders Wednesday at the White House, told reporters on Air Force One that the deal with Democrats would be “very good.”

“We agreed to a three-month extension on debt ceiling, which they consider to be sacred — very important — always we’ll agree on debt ceiling automatically because of the importance of it,” the president said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters he’ll add the spending and debt-limit extensions to the Hurricane Harvey relief package passed by the House earlier in the day. He said he will support the measure.

“The president agreed with Senator Schumer and Congresswoman Pelosi to do a three-month CR and debt ceiling until December,” said McConnell, a Kentucky Republican. “His feeling was that we needed to come together to not create a picture of divisiveness at a time of genuine national crisis.” CR is shorthand for a stopgap government spending bill.

Just hours earlier, House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin — who was in the meeting with Trump — had told reporters the Democratic proposal was “unworkable” and “ridiculous.”

      President Trump just showed the American people how foolish the current leaders of the Republican party are concerning getting things done. The voters will see more of this type of deal making in the future.

      The solution is to work hard to overcome the advantage that an incumbent politician has and get them out in the next available primary. These people must be replaced with true conservatives.
