GOP livid after Trump cuts deal with Democrats

September 7, 2017

Mitch_McConnellPresident Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s tête-à-tête on Tuesday — after a summer of sniping between the two — lifted Republican hopes that the GOP was finally back in sync ahead of a brutal fall of fiscal deadlines.

Not 24 hours later, the president cut a deal with Democrats on a short-term debt ceiling increase opposed by McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan. Just Wednesday morning, in fact, Ryan had scoffed at the Democratic offer that Trump accepted minutes later.

In the aftermath, Republicans seethed privately and distanced themselves publicly from the deal. They were left to hope that Trump’s collaboration with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was a temporary dalliance, and not the new MO for the president.

“Obviously, it would have been better not to make us vote repeatedly on the debt ceiling. But I wasn’t surprised,” sighed Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.). “I think Mitch would rather have done it differently, but it’s not worth having a big old fight over.”

    Rush Limbaugh predicted that Trump would do this three months ago b/c of the way the GOP has refused to support Trump’s agenda.
    GOP had better learn. Trump doesn’t suffer fools and these people are FOOLS! Corrupt ones at that.

  • Pete Bundy says:

    For eight years the republicans have had change after chance to get this taken care of yet al the did was kick the can down the road. A ceiling is just that-a ceiling. Let a balloon filled with helium lose in any room in your house and once it hits the ceiling thats it so stop trying to raise the damn ceiling and stop spending money on non needed projects. Time to ditch Mitch and can Ryan.

  • juniemoon says:

    I’m not exactly happy with the deal President Trump made with the dimwits. Now that it’s a done deal, piglosi and chucky cheese are gloating. I despise those two and the other dimwits.

    However, the RINOs and the other do-nothing repubs brought this on themselves. Ryan and turtle-faced mcconnell were not supporting our President nor were they working for the people. We need to get rid of them. I still support our President and always will.

  • Knowledge Transfer says:

    Delay! Extend! Delay! Extend! Delay! Delay! Extend! That’ what Republicans call winning. Gutless cowards.

  • Big Ed says:

    Remember that Trump asked Ryan and McConnell to attach the debt increase to another bill that had to be approved-they didn’t do it, and Trump said now it is going to be much harder to handle. The Republican leadership has no right to complain about what Trump did. He has been begging them for their help and they have blown him off at every turn. They think Trump has “unreasonable expectations”-is it unreasonable to expect them to do their jobs? Trump wants to help the people and he can’t do it alone-some legislation is needed. It seems the Republicans establishment is satisfied with the status quo. They are building their own funeral pyre-they could be taking over the country, if they only had a brain.

  • Richy_Feinberg says:

    Pres. Trump has to get somethings done on order to deal with the ongoing multiple problems that he has to deal with which are more important than cutting a temporary deal with Democrats. If Obama was faced with the many situations that Trump has to deal with, he probably go into the bathroom with a couple of packs of cigarettes and maybe a couple of joints and cry. Then he would put on his phony smile and go play golf.

    Conservatives United…
    Republicans are not keeping their promises…WE voted on promises…So far Zero!!

  • barbarakelly says:

    What do you think Mitch that Trump was going to bow you your socialist agenda —-I don’t think so. He made promises to the American people and if your not going to work with Trump then leave Gov –which I’m guessing is going to happen soon. You and Ryan are Jack-arzzes and that alone is an understatement You have miscalculated Trump from the beginning. And Yes Mitch we are seeing what you are trying to push conservatives out of Ala. and buster that was the wrong move on your part. YOu are going to pay the damn price trying to put a knife in our backs. —Your done.!!!!

    With all the RINOs in Washington, the liberals never lost control of Congress. The way the Republican Party keeps fighting with each other, they are far from becoming a super majority. As much as I hate to say it, Senator Schumer was right on when he said that the Republican Party isn’t organized like the Democrats. How right he is. When a Democrat wins the nomination, the rest of the party put their differences aside and they all give support to the nominee. That support continues if the nominee wins the White House. That hasn’t happened in the Republican Party since Reagan. I was hoping the Republicans would finally unite.

    Many in the “Dump Trump” crowd are the same RINOs, led by McConnell and Ryan, who promised to stop Obama in the 2014 Mid-term Election. Instead, they gave him most of what he wanted. If they had kept their campaign promises and used as much determination to stop Obama as they are using against Trump, Obama would have had his political hands tied his last two years in office. They ignored their campaign promises and I hope they all lose next year.

    The Republican Party needs unite and stop fighting against each other, and focus more on keeping control of the House and Senate and keeping a Republican in the White House. They need to go back to the conservative principals that has served them so well in the past. It is time for the Republican party to put their differences aside and get behind and support Trump. If McConnell and Ryan get their way that isn’t going to happen. I have more respect for cockroaches.

    BTW: Many of these Rino’s/Old Establishment types AND Democrats are ALL being given Money by George Soros, who IS ALSO behind Hiring/Paying for BLM, OWS, Anarchist Rioters, “TO CAUSE CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE, RIOTING, ATTACKING AMERICANS, to “DO AWAY WITH USA”(their Chant)

    Finally, ALL POSTERS : there is a site you can go(as I hope you do, and send it out to all on your email lists) to sign a Petition Against Soros to be charged:

    WHITEHOUSE.GOV Petition to Officially Declare George Soros a TERRORIST

    At the site, just scroll down to the above Headline and please sign this folks, as it NEEDS to Go Viral….Thank you Patriots!

  • ItsJo says:

    McConnell, Ryan, McCain, and the REST of the Old/Est/Rino’s forgot One Thing: WE the PEOPLE and your voter base Elected Trump as POTUS, and YOU ALL HAVE BEEN BASHING HIM, ATTACKING HIM ON FOREIGN SHORES, AND HAVE NOT STOOD BEHIND OUR CHOICE. You have bypassed OUR VOTES, and WE will COME FIRST, or YOU ALL will be OUT OF YOUR CUSHY JOBS, in your bids for reelections….Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, etal.

    Trump showed HOW LITTLE you get done in Congress, AND he put you all on notice, that YOU, can be replaced. His deal w/Democrats since YOU didn’t want one NOW to help desperate Hurricane Victims, and wanted to “Drag it out for 18 mos. so YOU, could be kept in office….Was Genius.

    Instead of Attacking YOUR Party’s Republican President Trump, you MAY want to think about STOPPING your attacks on him, being Obstructionists-Just like the Dems are, as you did NOTHING to Stop Obama, EVEN after we backed you to do so.

    ….SO NOW, DO YOUR JOBS, BY WORKING WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP, OR RETIRE, instead of trying to “KEEP Amassing your OWN PERSONAL FORTUNES, and Certainly NOT OURS’-The Republican Voters, you lie to.

  • Floyd Sloan says:

    I’m livid with a do nothing Republican run Senate [ name only ] who have thus far failed to deliver on their promise re: Obama Care and Tax Cuts. Had the Republican Congress R&R Obama Care, passed Tax Cuts and funded the Wall they would be on top in polls and for 2018!

    How sad is it that Corrupt Schumer and Dementia plagued Pelosi, are more likely to accomplish something than McConnell and McCain & Ryan and Meadows!!!

  • Mike USA says:

    Trump did this to tell the 2 RINO losers (Ryan/ McConnell) who think they own Congress, get the F#ck out of my way.
    Shame on both sides for holding TX relief hostage.
    I hate Chuckles and Numbskull Nance slightly more, but it’s close.
    TRump is palying a multilevel chess game on multiple fronts.
    I hope he’s got the resolve, I’ve voted for for to MAGA.

  • Roy Fredrichsen says:

    That is one way to get the Republicans off the fence of indecision and to get them serious about working together for the American people. Otherwise we just might vote for their replacements.

    Is There Many still waiting on Obamacare to be Repealed…Especially The Mandate!
    Is There Many still waiting on Tax Reform…?
    Is There Many still waiting on The Wall and Boarder security…?
    Republicans Are Letting Down Their Voters…2010-2014-2016 was BIG…
    here WE are…Waiting!!

    1. metheoldsarge says:

      What do they expect? As much as I hate to say it, a conservative majority in Congress is a joke. Most of them are RINOs and all that most of them have done is to join with Democrats against Trump at every turn. The RINOs have done everything to disappoint me and nothing to impress me. They work hard. I will give them that. They are working hard to make sure that two of the biggest campaign promises of 2016 will not be kept.

      I believe their promises to repeal Obamacare, for the last six years of the Obama Administration, and securing the border were just to try and earn brownie points with the voters. Securing the border and repeal of Obamacare were the highlights of the 2016 campaign. I don’t believe there was any intention of a repeal or border security at all. I think Trump winning the White House caught everyone flat footed because they expected a Hillary win. Now they seem to be running around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to find the right spin. Would almost be comical if it wasn’t so pathetic.

      Remember when George H. W. Bush said “Read my lips” in 1988? We all know what happened in 1992 as a result of that broken promise. The voters may give the Democrats full power over Congress next year, and kick Trump out of the White House by January 2021 and the RINOs will have brought it on themselves. Then we the people will again be left holding the bag. All because of a bunch of crybaby RINOS!

      1. Webb says:

        You expressed your disappointment well…
        After 2010, 2014 and 2016…and the broken promises concerning Obamacare.
        If no Repeal of The Obamacare Mandate and Boarder Security…I will set out voting in 2018-2020!

    He might as well work with them because the so called Republicans are turncoats and just as bad!!! McCain Graham McConnell Ryan and others are turncoates.YUK. OOps almost forgot Kasick and Flakey Flake.

  • Bob says:

    Is not the President supposed to work with both houses? I realize after 8 years of “my way or the highway” I realize, and even understand, how the Republicans wish our President was also that way, but he comes from business and not politics, so he knows how to make deals. Not to mention they way the GOP “Leadership” has been seemingly working against him since prior to his election.

  • Richard Frick says:

    All of you pandering Senators and Democrats will have to learn the lesson in a Hard Manner. President Trump is the President of the USA and NOT the Republican do nothing or the Democrat Obstruct everything Party. He is Serving the Citizens of the USA and not your special interests or graft taking/giving special interest groups that have made you thieves rich at the expense of the Citizens. Time to start honoring the platforms you ran on and not your bank accounts.

  • Janis says:

    I hope that when the Republican members of Congress got their proverbial noses out of joint, they all ran right to a mirror and did not like what they saw of themselves. I hope they saw a reflection of self-absorbed, greedy individuals who are only out for themselves and their longevity in Congress, and not for the constituents they promised time and time again to act on their behalf. I sincerely hope that this was a wake up call, or they may be on the unemployment line in November 2018.

  • klsparrow says:

    The Republicans had a golden chance after Trump was elected to look at what he ran on and what the people voted for. What did they do well they did nothing all running in different directions because of their ego’s. RINO’s like McCain,Graham,Collins just to name a few spent all their time attacking him and fighting everything the people voted for. 7+yrs of BS on Obama car and what have they done nothing. The bottom line is that the RINO’s and the Republican leadership would rather lose the congress than see Trump succeed. What Trump has done is tell the useless republicans that if you cannot get anything done I will go to Democrats for help. The republicans complain about him going to democrats. Yet these same republicans take the side of Democrats at every chance to attack the President. Has anyone in republican leadership backed the president against the media? How about SC Mueller going after Trump Russia BS. Yet say nothing about the Clinton ties to Russia. Committees in congress are controlled by Republicans yet the only they they are looking at in Trump/Russia nothing on Clinton, Comey, Lynch, Podesta. In reality Democrta control the committees. Starting is 2019 Democrats will be in charge officially

    1. Worried Vet says:

      I hope more will run with an I with their name including potus. This would screw up all these elites and i believe they would win including potus. That would change DC and get rid if these greedy do nothing for the country idiots. They still think they know better than we do.

  • Jmanjo says:

    This is why he was elected! He will do what has to be done to keep America forging ahead. He s not trapped by the political stigmas that old cagy Democrats and Republicans are. Schumer, Pelosi, Ryan and McConnell are all jostling around for position and that is why Americans are pissed off at DC! Add in that Republicans are in the upper hand and Democrats are sucked up to by media and that is America today.

  • cathylovesyou says:

    OK, Ryan is a waste of time a real phony, get him out Mitch, take some lessons from your wife, she is a doer. Better get out. Trump wants to get things done, sometime you have to deal with the real enemy to do it but Trump must be extra careful your dealing with dishonest people who are not good for America.

    1. PatriotGal says:

      cathy, am sure OUR PRESIDENT knows exactly with whom he is dealing. But this part is done for now. TX and LA will be helped, debt ceiling had to be raised temporarily. Are you aware that the PRESIDENT is not giving huge raises to the fed employees except for the military? Fed employees will get something, but not as much as they expected. So the PRESIDENT is cutting spending. He has saved billions in negotiating prices for planes, including AF1. He has saved billions pulling us from the Paris Climate Accord, demanding other nations pay their fair share to NATO so we aren’t expected to pay their shares, etc. Our economic growth is already at 3% and when the tax reform is passed, our businesses will drive this economy through the roof, thus more taxes will be collected because more products will be manufactured here in the USA increasing employment even higher than it is, employees will keep more of their OWN money, etc. If the RINOs, establishment elites refuse to help which they have proven repeatedly, then the regular House and Senators have to get on board for the American citizens and hopefully, the regular Dems will join the regular Repubs and the establishment elites on both sides can take a flying leap!

      1. cathylovesyou says:

        Don’t see where I disagree with you, my only concern is the Democrat Party lean toward Communism now more than ever and they are following a plan patiently for over 75 years. Obama perpetuated it whereby we put many in Washington, some were in the cabinet some are in Congress (Bernie) don’t believe that Socialist BS, Bernie and de Blasio push on the street. Yes Trump is street smart put the Progressives have been making slow progress up until 2009 and now they are stronger than ever, they have our Children.

          I know in my area were working on getting rid of rinos. They are more in line with liberals than potus so why shouldnt he work with them to get his agenda passed. These rinos are just as guilty at holding his agenda up and libs. These rinos and libs need to crap or get off the pot. Its time to work for we the people, instead of their power and wallets. Wake up congress were tires of the corruption. If their corrupt, lock them up.

          1. American Me says:

            I believe the problem is that they don’t really care what we what.They are getting rich selling their vote to SOROS or some other degenerate who wants to bring our country down.It would be very difficult to turn down piles of cash for just voting no on a bill or something else we need.The highest bidder wins.

          Just remember we are working up to an election year and dems have more at stake than the gop in 2018. They would work with the devil (I think many already do – by this I mean their archenemy) to keep their seats. Don’t think that the dems will work an iota with him past the elections. If President Trump takes advantage of this, who is to blame him? Except that it might make dems look good to voters, and that would be devastating.

          3. ItsJo says:

            Good post Pappy…This, is Exactly WHY Pres. Trump is On the Road, backing the Republicans who WILL replace the “Obstructionists’ of the GOP”….like Ryan, McCain, McConnell, Flake, Collins, Murkowski, Sasse, etal. who are also Rino/Dem-Lites who ALL like the Old Elitist Club of Corruption they ALL BELONG TO IN D.C.

          4. mudguy1 says:

            If my only chioce on who to vote for were people like McConnell,McCain,Flake,Ryan or Peter King of New York it would make no difference Republican. or Democrat. Voting for a rino is the same as voting for a Democrat.

The RINOS did not support you on Obamacare, immigration budget and now they are wondering why you are seeking support from the Dims. Simple you have a Country to run and with Ryan and Mitch your side you need no opposition on the other side of the aisle. Remember, Mr. President you have asked Mitch the impossible… your job….give us a days work for a non-deserving day pay Mitch. Are you complaining that the President can’t depend on you? Had you worked for me, you would be on the unemployment line a long time ago. zzz her

    With all the devastation occurring in our nation having a long drawn out debate over the debt ceiling is a useless endeavor. The GOP needs to spend their efforts on a new tax code and undoing the terrible new taxes that Obamacare is putting in place. Many will say that much of the new taxes will be levied against big corporations and not “We the People”. How naïve they all are – it is “We the People” that will pay for those taxes in higher prices.

      Richard, so well said. That’s all the RINOs, establishment elites planned to do – OBVIOUSLY – kick the budget can down the road, all the while TX and LA are suffering but they didn’t care. That hurdle is passed, now let’s get the tax reform done and if the Dems help so be it! Once done, do OWEbamaTAX repeal. It is WAAAAY past time for Congress to do SOME WORK and not just collect huge salaries and bennies.

        Yes here in texas were trying to get back to normal. Some places like my home fema still can’t get to where they can inspect. Now the U.S. virgin islands have been devastated and Irma is heading to Florida. Congress get off your butts and help the ones that need help. Pass a bill without all your little pet project pork in it. Your padding your pockets and buying votes is why this country is in debt and people who need help dont get it. STOP or come voting time we will fire your useless, chicken crap butts.

      2. Worried Vet says:

        Your right. They work an average of 123 days a year. What a job. They get paid for full time work and huge benefits packages for them and their families and dont get anything done except be on TV.

        Thanks, Richard

    The GOP should look in the mirror to see who is to blame for that deal. The Republican Senate has failed to enact any major legislation that both they and President Trump promised. The House has passed hundreds of Bills that have not been moved in the Senate. Many in the Senate running on those promises year after year. Hopefully, this is a wakeup call for the GOP Elites. Get your act together and start delivering on yours and the President’s promises or next up if you don’t, we primary you into retirement. Get the job done or get out!!!

  • Rich says:

    He has to do something. The Republicans are screwing him at every chance they get.

      I would have done the exact same thing.Hey GOP you want to block him then he will go around you.You’re call.Republicans should be ashamed of their actions.

    2. GoldenGirl2u says:

      I agree but, the Senate is where the majority of the problem is, they have the filibuster rule that the Reps. need 60 votes, it would be one last shot for Reps. if they gained the Senate Filibuster Proof numbers and then they have no excuses left. I’m trying to be hopeful here. Still can’t stand the Rinos and they do need to go.

  • bobnstuff says:

    Today Trump makes a deal with the Democrats on must pass legislation for funding disaster relief. In three months he will cut a deal with the Republicans for his wall or tax reform, once more on must pass legislation. Had he gone with Ryan’s deal he would have that second chance to push something through. I think he has figured out how to get the congress to do something.

  • Marine68 says:

    No one that knows Trump’s political History should be surprised; he was Democrat before he ran for office and his whole extended family is as well. Just wait until Ivanka gets her pet project, Free childcare for all.

    1. PatriotGal says:

      And what is your point, Marine68? Thank you for your service. My husband was an Army grunt, BIG RED 1 -’62, and he thinks this is the way to go. Get the job done! Party should make no difference – the American people and the country are to be considered FIRST and FOREMOST – which is why we voted for PRESIDENT Trump and shall do so again in 2020!!

      1. votedemout says:

        PG, on this I completely agree with you and BR. While I don’t want the President to give away the ship, I do want things to get moving and fix the country. I have several friends who are very hard working, middle class, conservative supporters that have small children. The wives have to work and after the ridiculous child care costs they realize very little for the effort.

        There are many, many middle class conservatives who would greatly benefit from Ivanka’s plan, what I don’t want to see is the non-working mom’s taking advantage of the program, so that they can spend more time at Nordstrom’s or their pilates studio. The folks who are allowed to take advantage of the plan must prove they are gainfully employed, full time, and must still put a small amount of skin in the game.
