It looks like the budget battle is brewing between Trump et al and Ryan Tillis Burr et al, and outlets like Forbes are preparing to lay the blame for an impending shutdown on the Freedom Caucus or Trump, and paint the establishment factions as the heroes in the battle against a government shutdown.
Every third turn they are trying to lay the blame for something on the Freedom Caucus. This time though, what the FC wants seems well aligned with what elected Trump in the first place, so I imagine we will see if they are able to lean into the fire and gin up a firestorm for the good.
"Paul Ryan - if you hate the majority of Americans so much as to give us nothing at all, then you are the ones shutting this government down, not us. We were elected to do a job, a job that you are not doing. Now either represent the American People, or step aside and let someone do it who will."
