Decision described by GOP leadership insider as a “total victory” for the Democrats
Why would a Republican President who has the benefit of Republican majorities in both the U.S. House and Senate feel the need to make a no-win deal with the most obstinate of liberal leadership? President Donald Trump did just that on Wednesday as he ceded incalculable power to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
They are called ‘Minority Leaders’ because their party is not in control. That renders the duo the president chummily calls “Chuck and Nancy,” second stringers.
Unable to fully absorb the enormity of President Trump’s actions, SRAZ waited a day, then two, to post about this needless collusion. The passage of time has done nothing to bring about any appreciable comprehension or lessen the ire created by the deal that put liberals at the helm of the ship of state that is commanded by a Republican president.
As a business entrepreneur Donald Trump was well known for saying he “loved the art of the deal.” In 1987 he co-authored a book titled, “The Art of the Deal.” Now, 30 years later he sits in the Oval Office, put there by American citizens who were fed up with liberals in control. Yet in this budget and debt limit deal, President Trump not only gave the left the upper hand, he allowed them to set the stage for passage of the nightmarish D.RE.A.M. Act as they claim victory.
Gloating Pelosi and Schumer released this joint statement:
In the meeting, the President and Congressional leadership agreed to pass aid for Harvey, an extension of the debt limit, and a continuing resolution both to December 15, all together. Both sides have every intention of avoiding default in December and look forward to working together on the many issues before us. As Democratic leaders, we also made it clear that we strongly believe the DREAM Act must come to the floor and pass as soon as possible and we will not rest until we get this done.
