Democratic leaders said Wednesday they'll provide the votes to pass a Hurricane Harvey relief package coupled with a three-month debt limit increase, hoping to capitalize on GOP infighting.
According to one congressional source briefed on the meeting, some Republican leaders were "visibly annoyed" during Ivanka Trump's appearance at the meeting, a description Ryan's spokeswoman AshLee Strong said was untrue. Until Wednesday, that hasn't happened. "So he and President - then to become President George Herbert Walker Bush did the Family Fairness agenda - to do more than Congress did", she said.
Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska, who has been critical of Trump at times, expressed his disappointed with the deal in a succinct statement following the announcement.
Democrats have also sought legislation to stabilize the health insurance markets, which have been mired by uncertainty over the future of the Affordable Care Act With Republicans failing thus far in their attempts to repeal and replace the healthcare law, Democrats could make their support for raising the debt ceiling contingent upon funding to stabilize the health insurance marketplace established by the ACA.
The Treasury Department has said the ceiling must be raised in the next few weeks.
Trump signaled after the meeting that he was willing to move quickly to raise the debt ceiling for a three-month extension. "We essentially came to a deal, and I think the deal will be very good".
Granting just a three-month debt limit increase is a hardball tactic that preserves Democrats' ability to force another poisonous fight on Republicans at the end of the year.
"The president agreed with Sen".

Just earlier Wednesday, Ryan had denounced the idea of a mere three-month deal as "ridiculous and disgraceful", accusing Democrats of playing politics "at a moment when we have fellow citizens in need".
The plan, however, drew pushback form some more conservative Republican members who believe that the debt ceiling should be offset with spending cuts to manage the growth of debt.
It's unlikely that this particular accord signals an age of bipartisan bonhomie in Washington. Those comments came while the president was en route to a tax reform event in North Dakota, and he did not mention his own party's congressional leaders.
