John Boehner tried to keep Donald Trump from
shutting down the government report A new report indicates that the government
came closer to shutting down than many realized earlier this month. President Donald Trump was apparently dissatisfied
with the outcome of the spending bill negotiations and was contemplating vetoing it, according
to a report by Axios. White House chief of staff Reince Priebus
was concerned enough about the possibility that Trump would follow through on this that
he asked John Boehner, the former Speaker of the House, to explain why it was so important
for the president to sign the bill. Trump to cut $800 billion in Medicaid cuts Boehner apparently told Trump that, along
with being pleased that he didn�t have to match military spending increases with domestic
spending, the president should realize that the last thing he needed was a government
shutdown. While it is unclear whether Boehner�s arguments
were crucial to the president�s decision to sign the bill, the report indicates that
Priebus feeling the need to reach out to Boehner at all suggests that Trump vetoing the bill
was a real possibility. This doesn�t mean that Trump�s spending-related
woes have subsided. Trump is expected to propose a budget on Tuesday
that will include massive cuts to Medicaid spending, while House Republicans continue
to be divided over whether to cut $54 billion in domestic spending as Trump has proposed. This is a particularly critical issue for
the party because, in order to pass tax reform in the Senate without a Democratic filibuster,
they need to successfully pass a budget resolution. Yet just as many Republican moderates were
reluctant to support the American Health Care Act out of concern that it would hurt low-income
Americans, so too are many hesitating to support domestic spending cuts that would target the
most vulnerable.
