    10:30: Paul Ryan calls Dem debt deal "ridiculous", "unworkable."

    12:30: Trump agrees to Dem debt deal.

    Said Mitch McConnell:

    “The president agreed with Sen. Schumer and Congresswoman Pelosi to do a three-month [funding extension] and a debt ceiling into December, and that’s what I will be offering based on the president’s decision, to the bill. And we’ll try to get 60 votes and move forward,” McConnell told reporters Wednesday afternoon. “The president can speak for himself, but his feeling was that we needed to come together to not create a picture of divisiveness at a time of genuine national crisis. And that was the rationale.”​

    Ryan is a turd, Trump is still garbage, and McConnell is still a turtle. But all off the hook thanks to the Dems. It seems to have rankled the base however:

    Trump’s agreement, which he described to reporters as he flew to an event in Bismarck, N.D., came over the objections of his fellow Republicans who ostensibly run Congress. In effect, Trump further empowered its Democratic minority to influence the outcome of a range of budget, immigration and tax issues through the end of the year.

    The pact left several Republican leaders seething that the self-proclaimed deal-maker had undercut his own party’s leaders to give leverage to their political rivals, who celebrated openly.​


    Given the hand the 2016 election has dealt, I ain't complain'.

    Are you saying Trump might be for something before he is against it?

    Gee...where have we heard that before?

    Mitch McConnell is a giant douche and Ryan was a turd sandwich, until he came around. With this deal Trump proved he can work with the Dems. Now it's time for his own party to work with him or lose all legitimacy.

    Trump will regret it. There is a reason Dems wanted December and hold Trump hostage to get what they want to threaten to shut down the government at Christmas. Dems have proven they don't give a shit about the debt. The rest of the inside baseball stuff that Bill seems to cheer about when it goes in his favor is just noise that nobody else gives a rat's ass about.

    Haha. Wait until "tax reform" time. Then we will see who how the GOP cares (same as 2001) though the GOP can run their pretend growth rates of 4% and pretend they won't be running up the debt. I suppose I should be glad the GOP is utterly incompetent at governing.

    I think, excuse me, know, the Democrats are far more competent in running the government.

    Which of course is why they don't run the White House, Congress, a majority of Governorships or a majority of State Legislatures, because they are so good at it. :rolleyes:

    Please explain why the states that Dems do run top to bottom are fiscal cluster fucks or does that not fit your partisan narrative so it is ignored.

    Seems to me Democrats generally hate business and love Goverment. I'm on the other side, I cheer business and loath government. My reasoning is govenment takes a lot and gives little, and business takes little and gives a lot.

    Are you lot delusional?

    Trump doesn't side with anyone but himself! He'd make a deal with ISIS if it made him look like him getting a "win". It's only about the ratings.

    Anyway, whatever about Republicans in general over the years, the current crop could not agree to pïss if their crotches were on fire. It's one thing to decide to buck their loser child president, but they are incapable of implementing any alternative.
