President Donald Trump is poised to host six senators from both parties for a bipartisan working dinner Tuesday, according to multiple people familiar with the plans. If we cut the rates, we have an opportunity to see millions of new jobs created to really raise wages.

"Since I was in charge of drafting the debt-ceiling provision that we inserted into the flood bill we likely - nearly certainly - are not going to have another debt-ceiling discussion until well into 2018", McConnell told The Times. "If we can do that, we'd like it". "If they have to go higher, they'll go higher". "We're looking at the middle class, and we're looking at jobs".

Speaking on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Wednesday, Manchin says Trump will focus on tax cuts for the middle class.

The White House and the Republican-led Congress have not put forth a detailed tax plan despite months of talks that have excluded Democrats.

Trump answered a reporter's question regarding conservatives' and Republicans' skepticism of his working with Schumer and Pelosi.

Democrats hinted that they could use the debt ceiling as a political tool to force Republicans to make concessions on government spending, shore up the health insurance markets and possibly pursue other legislative ends, like ensuring protections for DREAMers.

"In this point we have a chance - the first time in 30 years - to revitalize the American economy for a new generation of Americans long after Mitch McConnell is gone, long after we're gone", Ingraham added.

But "we've gotten nearly nothing from Republicans", Ingraham lamented.

The closed-door process under which Republican congressional leaders and the Trump administration are crafting an overhaul of the United States tax code could impede the Senate's timeline for the effort. White House legislative affairs director Marc Short said Tuesday at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast that tax reform would likely depend on support from Democrats, since Republicans had failed to deliver votes on other legislative priorities.

"We had a great substantive conversation about policy, and great outreach to Democrats", Toomey said of the dinner, which included Democratic senators from North Dakota, West Virginia and Indiana. Nobody would be able to touch us. But going into a midterm election, it's going to be unsafe for any Republican to vote against tax reform.
