Rep. Tom Rice, R-S.C., in an op-ed piece for the Washington Examiner on Tuesday, said President Donald Trump's willingness to work with Democrats is paying off.

Trump last week brokered a deal with Democrats and Republicans to secure hurricane aid funding and to raise the debt ceiling. He is also now indicating he will support a bill to help recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program without requesting funding for his border wall and, on taxes, broke from his party's usual line and said wealthy Americans "will not be gaining at all" under the overhaul.

"This country has historically been governed from the center-right," wrote Rice. "There have always been loud voices on both extremes. But those voices did not govern in the past, and will not in the future. If we are to move forward, grow our economy, and restore this land of opportunity, we must get back to governing from the center-right with compromise on both sides."

The healthcare issue continues to be a stalemate, with House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and the White House on Tuesday informing Senate Republican leaders that they oppose a bipartisan Obamacare stabilization bill.

"If we continue to pursue complex legislation such as tax reform with only Republican votes in the hopes of getting 96 percent, we are fools," Rice wrote. "I hope Trump has seen enough of that."
