Freedom Caucus might go rogue on tax reform

Freedom Caucus might go rogue on tax reform”

Mark Meadows (R-NC) comments on President Trump's debt ceiling deal with Democrats on Wednesday in an interview with Neil Cavuto on the FOX Business Network.

But appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Friday, Meadows said this isn't true.

Meadows said the move does put him in a "negotiating disadvantage", but the President made that decision because he "wasn't given a whole lot of options".

During an Oval Office meeting Wednesday, Trump accepted a proposal by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY and his House counterpart, Nancy Pelosi of California, to tie a three-month suspension of the debt limit to a Hurricane Harvey relief measure and throw in a stopgap continuing resolution to fund the government into December.

The increasingly grumpy Republican purists reportedly even hissed and booed during a presentation by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and White House budget director Mick Mulvaney, who not long ago was co-founder of the Freedom Caucus. "It's not something that any of us advocated for".

It is expected to be among the largest caucuses for GOP Congress members, along with the Republican Study Committee and House Freedom Caucus.

Pat Tiberi will lead the Main Street Caucus, formed by the organization for centrist Republicans that was once headed by Steve LaTourette, a former Republican congress member from Bainbridge Township who died in 2016. "In fact, I was not aware of any substantial conversations among rank and file members". "What is the plan for tax reform" such as tax brackets, he asked. Rove added that while the deal with democrats may turn out to be a good one, the President should not have surprised his own party because the worst thing he can do is surprise his allies.

The vote in the House on Friday to provide $15.25 billion in disaster relief and extend government funding and the federal borrowing limit until December 8 was 316-90. The additional funding would to address housing needs in disaster zones.
