House Speaker Ryan says rates must be permanent in tax reform

27 August 2017

"Closing the Federal government is not the solution to the government "mess" that President Trump thinks it is", a longtime Defense Department employee said.

He said the president's "dangerous rhetoric" put those Americans' lives at risk. Yet some advisers believe Trump should keep training his fire on Republicans, which would be better for his own independent brand. "Nobody wants me to talk about your other senator who's weak on borders, weak on crime - so I won't talk about him", Trump said.

On Thursday, he unleashed another tweetstorm attacking the GOP. She tweeted that the email's goal was to provide reporters with "research on Trump's lies" and noted that DNC chair Tom Perez earlier this month said a massive border wall along the southern border of the United States is "ludicrous" and a waste of tax dollars.

But the President needs to be careful. When even a short-term budget patch can not be agreed in Congress, or if the president decides to veto either a long-term or short-term budget measure, the government shuts down. "This new administration in Washington, and this Congress, is interested in getting America growing again". There is a potential for more volatility this time around than there might have been in the past. In the 1930s when Democrats generally ruled Congress, Franklin Roosevelt famously did battle with conservative southern Democrats.

Top Democrats meanwhile urged Republican leaders to act responsibly and commit to avoiding a government default. What does it matter to him if he converts to a registered Democrat?

Democratic legislators became some of Johnson's most vocal and problematic critics of the war, leading to a number of primary challenges to the president's re-election bid in 1968 before he made a decision to withdraw from the race.

Contractors such as Bailey pay twice when the government shuts down.

And this little more than 12 hours after statements by their respective offices attempted to smooth things over, insisting the two had meetings scheduled after the August recess to work on their "shared agenda".

That's been Trump's promise, but it's increasingly apparent that it's mostly political rhetoric. His unorthodox and controversial style of politics creates more political incentives for Republicans to take a stand against his presidency.

It was the latest evidence of a widening split between Trump and Republican lawmakers, which only worsened following what many viewed as his insufficient condemnation of the deadly violence by white supremacist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, earlier this month.

Moderate Republicans have called a shutdown unwise, and Republican leaders are determined to prevent one, fearing it would worsen doubts about the party's ability to govern. Some analysts said Congress may try to tackle both issues at the same time, perhaps in a single piece of legislation.

President Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress have vowed to slash business tax rates and overhaul the USA tax code before year end, with a Republican-only strategy that requires a special parliamentary procedure to get legislation through the Senate on a simple majority.

The real question is not whether President Trump could end up severely damaged by a fight against his own party, but whether the congressional wing of his party really has the courage or political interest to take him on when push comes to shove.

Sources with knowledge of the call said the exchange quickly devolved into a shouting match, as an irate Trump expressed his frustrations about the congressional investigation into Russian interference in the U.S. election past year and fumed about a Russia sanctions bill Congress passed that would tie Trump's hands on the matter. I understand that. But the bigger picture is, what is the Republican Party?

And if the President really spends the next few months attacking the Republican Congress and succeeds in undercutting enthusiasm within his base, he might regret his actions by finding himself with a Democratic Congress in January 2019 that is more than willing to move forward with impeachment.
