Rush Limbaugh recently pointed out that it’s not only Democrats who are standing in Trump’s way. It’s Republicans in the House and Senate, too. Rush theorizes that this is really a battle between Trump and the establishment. He makes a very good case.
Here’s a partial transcript from Daily Rushbo:
LIMBAUGH: The GOP Are ROAD-BLOCKING Trump More Than Democrats Are
RUSH: 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. 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. Now the latest story… There’s a Wall Street Journal story. You know, I had this sort of cram last night after getting back from being away two days.
I saw a Wall Street Journal story about how the Republicans in the House, they just can’t! It’s just impossible. They’re pulling their hair out. They don’t know what to do. They just can’t find a way to cut any taxes. Because every time they cut a tax over here, they have to find a way to make the money up over there, and they just can’t. They’re looking at all these various tax cuts proposals and they said, “I — I — I don’t know how we’re gonna pay for all this.”
