POTUS: to Support Dems for Debt Ceiling Proposal

POTUS: to Support Dems for Debt Ceiling Proposal”

Many Republicans are unhappy with the deal President Donald Trump reached last week with Democratic leaders to raise the government's debt ceiling and allow it to continue financing federal spending programs until December 8.

But those two words - "tax reform" - mean much different things to Democrats and Republicans, just like the three word phrase, 'health care reform, ' making bipartisanship much more hard to formulate.

Trump delivered a speech in Heitkamp's homestate of North Dakota earlier in September, bringing the Democratic senator along with him on Air Force One and calling her a "good woman".

Then Thursday morning, at Pelosi's request, Trump posted a reassuring tweet, "For all of those (DACA) that are concerned about your status during the 6 month period, you have nothing to worry about - No action!" While nominal a Republican, Mr. Trump is much more of a populist president than anything resembling a Republican. On Tuesday evening, the president and vice president are hosting a dinner with both Republican and Democratic senators.

Trump surprised Republicans this week when he took the offer of Sen.

In private talks, Trump advisers are pressing to eliminate or reduce several popular tax deductions, including the interest companies pay on debt, state and local income taxes paid by families and individuals, and the hugely popular mortgage interest deduction.

That wasn't the view of some Republicans at the end of last week when Sen.

Trump met last week with the leaders of both parties - Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Ryan, Senate Democratic Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY and House Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California. Schumer characterized the estate-tax measure as a ruse that would add $269 billion to the deficit over 10 years and lead to Republican cries that Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security must be cut to restore balance.

"I think the Republican Party survives if it can prove that it can govern", says John Feehery, who was the spokesman for former House Speaker Dennis Hastert.

U.S. Sens. Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, should represent Iowans and the majority of our nation. "So, yes. without the debt limit, we have leverage - leverage in the sense that they need our votes", Hoyer said. And it's entirely possible that Schumer and Pelosi would've increased their demands as time went on.

He expressed concerns about the opaqueness of discussions on Capitol Hill, where Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and National Economic Council director Gary Cohn were meeting Tuesday behind closed doors with Republican lawmakers.

Republicans are shocked. Really?

"I think that the president first and foremost - rather than party affiliation - looks at what he can do best for the American people and to fulfill the promises he made on the campaign trail", Short said.

The Democrats rejected three different debt extension periods offered by McConnell and Ryan that were created to avoid a government shutdown. Mr. Trump and his administration pushed back against the idea siding with the Democrats; signing a law free from fiscal restraints. He's focused on "what he can do for the American people".
