Democrats ready more demands after surprise win with Trump

Democrats say they plan to build on the surprise spending and debt ceiling agreementthey reached with President Trump on Wednesday, by looking to win more concessions on their own agenda items in the months ahead.

"We have an effective leadership here that keeps the team together and I think it really helps," Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass., a longtime member who sits on the powerful House Rules Committee, told the Washington Examiner. "We are going to, as theses spending bills go forward, I think we are going to be able to exert a little more leverage than I think our Republican friends appreciate."

Democrats scored a major victory at the White House on Wednesday when they won support from Trump for a three-month increase in the nation's borrowing limit.

In your heads you think you "won" something. In Reality, it had to happen so Trump can continue his spending cuts and shrink of the government so he can finally get us spending less than we make.

Democrats have no concept of this, so they are thinking they just "won" a round with Trump.

What idiots!
