(Worthy News) – President Trump’s decision to hold White House meetings with Democrats on key agenda items has sent a clear message to the GOP that it needs to get moving or he’ll make deals with the minority party.
“I think the failure on repeal and replace of Obamacare in the Senate certainly wasn’t a presidential failure, it was a congressional failure,” Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla. told the Washington Examiner. “Reminding Republicans that there is more than one party to negotiate with around here, in case you can’t come to an agreement, is a good thing, not a bad thing.”
Trump sent a signal on how far he might be willing to go to bring Democrats in on tax reform, the next big agenda item on the GOP’s list. He met with a bipartisan group of lawmakers, mostly Democrats, to begin discussing tax reform and seemed to agree with a demand made by Schumer in August that new tax cuts won’t benefit the wealthy.
