The Donalds Deal with The Devil

The deal for quick approval to Hurricane Harvey Relief money President Trump made with the Democrat leadership raised the debt ceiling temporarily for 3 months, an almost worthless gift to the Democrats, No matter what Kabuki theatre the Republicans put out there, THEY will ultimately have to raise the debt ceiling for a longer period, which was true before the deal and will remain true after the next bill. He made a deal with the Rats, gave them next to nothing and got help for Harvey victims as a work around to get the aid to TX and LA as fast as possible, sending the message to those beleaguered folks that we’ve got your back. What a concept; concern for the little guy tax payer first.

He actually un-politicized the aid to Harvey victims, by getting the job done in real time. He has proven that unlike the party hacks in Republican Leadership, Trump gives a damn. Raising the debt ceiling is nearly inevitable in any case, so what did he really give up to get the money for Texas and Louisiana? Less than nothing. In making this deal he did something of course less important than aid to Harvey victims; He emphasized that a demon republican elite class is not relevant to the advancement of the Trump’s agenda, because the Elites have made themselves so.
Republicans acting like leftist Democrats make working with the literal Democrats not only not a betrayal, but necessary.

Back in 2010 when so many of us backed Allen West for congress who promised he would not vote to raise the debt ceiling, within a week of getting sworn in, he voted to raise the debt ceiling and joined the congressional black caucus. These kinds of betrayals have become a regular staple of the political diet of the American people. What is in the tap water up there in the District of Criminals? I suspect its Lithium…..or LSD…..or both; The drugs would make the politico’s totally screwed up and really happy about it.

I rest my case.

But at the same time the President sent a message to McConnell and Ryan. “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” and they have proven time and time again to be the enemy of the peoples agenda. Remember folks what the DC Republican crowd called the tea partiers after they got them the House and Senate? Everything BUT Nazi’s! Now we are talking betrayal.

What is stopping the GOP leadership from pushing a long term debt ceiling agreement in December? Zero. But the deal did serve to make McConnell swallow his lower lip. There is a pic in the WSJ of him with the DEM leadership and he looks like he is in total shock. Couldn’t happen to a nicer jack ass.*

From the Wall Street Journal –
“ Privately, Senate Republican aides said the deal registered as a rebuke, following a stormy summer in which Senate Republicans failed to repeal the Affordable Care Act and chastised Mr. Trump for his remarks re Charlottesville. Republicans – the stupid party.”
