With aid deal, Trump creates his own roadmap for handling gridlock

Ingraham If GOP Can't Get Tax Reform Done They're 'Finished'

Republicans initially wanted an 18-month debt limit extension in a bid to avoid politically costly negotiations in the wake of the looming 2018 elections where most Senate and House seats will be up for grabs.

"If it's depending on Democratic votes, it increases our leverage", Pelosi said in an interview with a small group of reporters. Democrats see the legislation as a vehicle for an amendment to extend for a year Affordable Care Act subsidies that reduce deductibles and co-pays for lower-income enrollees.

Trump announced last week that he is scrapping DACA, a program that allowed young immigrants who came to the USA illegally as children to remain in the country and work legally. Some 800,000 of these immigrants are now protected from deportation by temporary work permits granted by an Obama administration program, but Trump has said he will dismantle it. Illinois Sen. Richard Durbin says legislation to save DACA doesn't have the necessary 60 votes in the Senate yet-but it might in six months.

Democrats are hoping their new working relationship with the president will improve the prospects for codifying President Obama's protections for "Dreamers", the young undocumented adults brought into the country as children under his "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals" program, known as DACA. A leader among moderate House Republicans, Dent announced his retirement last week one day after a pro-Trump candidate announced plans to primary him, calling Dent the "ringleader" of opposition to the White House.

"The deal is not quite as good as my counterpart thought it was", the Senator from Kentucky told the New York Times' "The New Washington" podcast, explaining that the battle for the debt limit increase will be delayed well beyond the initially agreed December deadline. I think that is just a - but particularly when you have the debt burden that we now have. And we know that when bullies step up, you have to step to them and step to them quickly. "So what's he going to do?" asked Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council.

"I'm extremely anxious", said Sen. "'Put out a message of assurance to people and we want to hold you accountable to that message of assurance'". But, he added, "They're just as mad at the Republican leadership as they are the Democrats".

Asked her takeaway from that exchange, Pelosi said: "We have to always assume that people are acting with love in their heart".

Frankfurt - Honda Urban EV on sale in two years
But if that sounds as though this is one of those design exercises that never makes it anywhere near a production line, it's not. A notable styling touch is the blue backlighting of the Honda emblem on the front, which will be on all future Honda EVs.

In contrast, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said little, grimacing as the presidential shiv remains stuck between his vertebrae. Republicans can not agree on how to pay for - or even whether they should pay for - tax cuts that largely benefit the rich. Pro-business Republicans want "full expensing" for capital investments; others want as flat a tax code as possible.

The Post said the Freedom Caucus considered what Trump did a betrayal "that would erase one of the few points of leverage conservatives have to extract spending cuts during high stakes fiscal debates".

"The president has been in a business where knowing your numbers has been essential", Pelosi said.

"We're going to have hearings first, and then we'll go from there".

She said voters expect lawmakers and the president to work together.

"Since I was in charge of drafting the debt ceiling provision that we inserted into the flood bill we likely - nearly certainly - are not going to have another debt ceiling discussion until well into 2018", McConnell said on the podcast.
