    Trump Wants To Work With Schumer To Get Rid Of Debt Ceiling FOREVER


    President Trump and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) have agreed to pursue a deal that would permanently remove the requirement that Congress repeatedly raise the debt ceiling, three people familiar with the decision said.

    Trump and Schumer discussed the idea Wednesday during an Oval Office meeting. The two, along with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D–Calif.), agreed to work together over the next several months to try to finalize a plan, which would need to be approved by Congress.

    Sadly, I agree on getting rid of it. Think about it, what do we get for keeping it? Doesn't stop or slow the spending. Only gives Dems a weapon to keep using against us. They shut the Gov. down, we take the blame, they rejoice and spend more. Just not worth keeping any more.

    A balanced budget amendment would be nice, but they'd probably figure out a way to get around that as well.
