Hurrican Harvey May Force Trump To Swallow A Bitter Pill
Trump would like to sign a bill that provides funds for the Texas disaster. That would enable him to be viewed as hero without needing to do anything. The leaders in the House and the Senate plan to attach things to the Harvey relief package that Trump and conservatives will not like. It will not provide funds for Trump's promised wall and it will provide funds to keep the government running by raising the debt ceiling. Hopefully this is a sign the Republican Congress will not be dominated by Trump and his conservative base. They will get votes from Democrats that compensate for the loss of Tea Party votes.
