Trump says he's getting things done at a 'record' speed despite no major legislative victory

Trump says he's getting things done at a 'record' speed despite no major legislative victoryWhen they return to Washington next week, legislators will have about 12 working days to raise the debt ceiling and approve a federal budget – two tasks that have been made difficult by the differing priorities of the administration and members of Congress. On top of that, if the Senate wants to pass a bill to overhaul Obamacare – otherwise known as the Affordable Care Act – with just 51 votes, it must do so by 30 September, according to the Senate parliamentarian. The Senate’s Republican leaders suffered a colossal defeat in July when they failed to get enough members of their own party to vote for a bill that would have dismantled Barack Obama’s healthcare law.
