Most GOP Voters Trust Trump Over Party Leaders on Bipartisan Dealmaking

"What I announced today is when we return the week of the 25th, we will release the consensus document with President Trump and Senate tax writers and then we will move forward on the budget issue", Brady said.

And Senate GOP observers privately warn that if that happens - and if far-right conservative nominees win primaries to face Democrats in other races - the Senate majority would be very much in jeopardy, which would only cause Trump more headaches, especially if the House were to flip too.

"No budget, no tax reform", Brady told the conference. If he had been better prepared for his presidency and been able to set his own congressional priorities, he might have put tax reform or infrastructure reconstruction before Obamacare.

The deal for aid to Hurricane Harvey victims, which included a short-term lifting of the debt ceiling and stopgap funding for government operations through December 8, was a bitter pill to swallow for many House conservatives, who had pushed to attach spending cuts to any increase in the government's federal borrowing limit.

"If Mitch McConnell can not get this done. with the House in Republicans hands, obviously the Senate and the presidency, then I think it's time for him and a lot of his colleagues to go into a different line of work", Ingraham said.

♦ They pulled it off because from the beginning, the Reagan administration agreed that tax reform should not be used as a subterfuge to either increase the deficit or to shift the tax burden away from the wealthy.
