i am told by multiple sources Rs are furious. The Democratic ploy — to keep debt limit short term — worked. It took just a few hours— Jake Sherman (@JakeSherman) September 6, 2017
I know this is not possible because Mitch McConnell is a sooper-genius legislator and Paul Ryan is the best Speaker of the House evah!, and Donald Trump wrote the book on "The Art of the Deal"!:
However, as the Washington Post reports, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) convinced Trump to go along with them on their three-month debt limit plan — and Republicans in Congress are not happy about it.
One Republican aide told Axios reporter Jonathan Swan that the Democrats “bluffed their way into total victory” over the GOP, and bemoaned that “DACA will be reauthorized without strings.” Additionally, the aide wrote that Schumer has now “inserted himself into all the negotiations in the winter, including tax, spending, and immigration.”
I'll stop laughing in a minute; I swear, I really will!
