Rush Limbaugh: GOP ‘Roadblocking Donald Trump More Than the Democrats Are’

Tuesday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh said President Donald Trump’s agenda was being roadblocked by Republicans and pointed remarks from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) arguing the difficulties of passing legislation as the reason. Transcript as follows: I don’t understand how people don’t get that it’s not just the Democrats in Washington that are roadblocking Trump. I mentioned it earlier. Mitch McConnell says he can’t see a way to getting 50 votes for the House Obamacare repeal bill? 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, 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.
