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'.
