Rush Limbaugh: GOP is True Obstacle to President Trump’s Agenda

Talk show host Rush Limbaugh is fired up again, accusing Republicans of being the true obstacle to President Trump’s conservative agenda.

And you know what, he’s right.

Limbaugh launched into a lengthy discourse on how the GOP is the true roadblock to the Trump platform of reforming healthcare or cutting taxes, etc.

He explained that the Democrats’ opposition is to be expected. But it’s the establishment Republicans who are successfully stopping him.

“I don’t understand how people don’t get that it’s not just the Democrats in Washington that are roadblocking Trump,” Limbaugh said.

From there, he explained exactly how the GOP had constantly sold what they would achieve if Obama and the Democrats were ousted from office, versus how they are acting now that they’re in power.

Via The Blaze:

“Mitch McConnell says he can’t see a way to getting 50 votes for the House Obamacare repeal bill?” he asked rhetorically. “Now, stop and think here, folks. Back when the only element that we had was the House of Representatives and Republican voters were constantly saying, ‘Why aren’t you doing more to stop Obama? Why aren’t you trying to do something to stop Obamacare?’ The answer was always, ‘Well, all we’ve got is the House. W-w-we can’t get anything through the Senate because the Democrats own the Senate. Obama’s in the White House! He’ll veto anything if it did make it there.’”

“So voters gave Republicans the Senate,” he continued, “and Mitch McConnell said, ‘Well, the first thing you have to know is it takes 60 votes to do anything in the Senate, and we don’t have 60 votes. We only have 52.’ And then he would add, ‘Plus, as long as Obama’s still in the White House, all this is academic anyway. He’s gonna veto whatever we pass.’ So we gave the Republicans the White House and elected Trump.”

And yet, they’re still stalling.

To his point, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) recently whined that, “I don’t know how we get to 50 [votes] at the moment” regarding the Senate Obamacare bill. It was perhaps a bit of foreshadowing to Republican voters being stabbed in the back on key legislation that they had voted for at the ballot box.

After warning that Republicans had little to no interest in addressing tax reform – “They don’t want to cut taxes. Either they don’t want to cut taxes institutionally, they don’t want to cut taxes economically, or they just don’t want to do the heavy lifting.” – Limbaugh came to one very interesting conclusion about the President’s own party.

“My guess is they don’t want to help Trump,” he concluded.
