WSJ: White House Opens Door to Democrats

The White House sent a warning shot to congressional Republicans that it may increase its outreach to Democrats if it can’t get the support of hard-line conservatives, a potential shift in legislative strategy that could affect drug prices, the future of a tax overhaul and budgetary priorities.

Days after the House GOP health bill collapsed due to a lack of support from Republicans, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus brought up the idea of working with Democrats multiple times, leaving little doubt that the White House intended to send a message to the hard-line Republican flank.

“This president is not going to be a partisan president,” Mr. Priebus said on “Fox News Sunday.” He said that while “I think it’s time for our folks to come together, I also think it’s time to potentially get a few moderate Democrats on board as well.”

    Some good blogger asked me not to invite Trump in the Democratic Party because his mind has already been poisoned by Repubs and TPs. But that Trump now wants to expand Obamacare we should invite him in the Dems. After all Repubs and TPs did not vote for Trump and they hate him. Trump is lucky Repub Health did not pass. We Democrats wish Trump the best for the next 3 years and 7 months. Let Trump continue President Obama’s legacy-building the economy of this Country. Then Trump will meet the following in 2020: Michelle Obama, Warren, Bernie; Hillary and Russ Feingold. What a day to see him pack up back to NY Trump Tower! As pointed before, if Trump wants 2nd term, he should join Democrats; although some Democrats do not welcome him.

    It’s about time. Too bad the Democrats wont cooperate.

    He has little choice. Many of his fellow “Republicans’ hate him, like Ryan,McCain, Graham, and most of the others. They are trying as hard as they can to discredit him. He may as well try to work with he Democrats. After all getting his programs is what is important not partisan squabbling. Since the radical right killed his attempt at Obamacare reform, he may as well try another approach. Those who killed his Obamacare repeal, may regret having nothing to offer when the next election comes. After 7 years those clowns could come up with no alternative to Obamacare?

      Face it… Trump owes neither party a thing! The repubs didn’t elect him. The dems didn’t elect him.
      One group elected Trump to be POTUS…The public, the American people. So then if after all is said and done, the GOP will not work with him, he has no choice but to the right thing by the people and reach out to the other side to get the peoples work done , just as he promised.

    I have never been a Trump fan, but so far I like most of what he has done. Reaching out to the dems is a huge mistake. W tried it and he sold the farm. The idea of reaching out to the dems sounds good, but it is their way or the highway. They do not negotiate. It sounds to me like Trump is selling out and that scares me. Until recently he has been a liberal and still has many liberal tendencies (Paid leave/paid child care). He was a supporter of Hillary and Obama. I just hopes he will be the president he promised to be and not fall back to his liberal roots

    With Trump in charge, yes work with Dems this is how Reagan was able to have his success and although I didnt like him as president, Clinton only had success when he worked with Gingrich and the Republicans. Plus that is how the whole deal is supposed to work both parties working for the good of the American people. Also we need to have a strong tough meeting with the media and stop the invention of stories, the out of context stories and just plain lying by the media by instituting libel laws tough enough to bring them in line!
