Donald Trump’s legislative agenda is being blocked in Congress.

Rush Limbaugh explained who is thwarting the will of the people who elected him President.

But his answer may shock you.

Trump’s agenda to build the wall, cut taxes, and repeal Obamacare has stalled out in Congress.

Many Americans assume it’s because the Democrats in the Senate are filibustering those initiatives.

That is not the case.

The real culprits – as explained by Rush Limbaugh – are establishment Republicans.

Breitbart reports:

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.”

So the Republican Party, which is ostensibly the party of the president — and they owe their majority to him, particularly the Senate — are roadblocking Donald Trump more than the Democrats are, because the Democrats cannot. The Democrats don’t have the votes in the House to stop Trump. The Democrats don’t have the votes in the Senate to stop Trump, although there is the 60-vote cloture requirement. It’s not the Democrats standing up and saying, “We are not gonna help. We’re gonna stand in the way of any foolish tax cut you propose.”

To cut taxes and repeal Obamacare, the GOP can use budget reconciliation and pass those bills with a 51 vote majority.

But it’s becoming apparent that Republicans in the Senate lied about their support for both.

Senators such as Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski have been hesitant to support an Obamacare repeal bill.

Other Senators such as Ohio’s Rob Portman – who comes from a state where they expanded Medicaid – are fighting to keep that expansion of government healthcare intact.

On taxes, establishment Republicans are obsessed with “revenue neutral” tax reform.

This means taxes aren’t really cut. Some are cut. Some are raised.

But the point is that the government keeps taking in the same amount of money.

If Obamacare repeal and tax cuts stall, it won’t be because the Democrats threw up unbeatable opposition.

The Republicans have the votes to push through Trump’s agenda.

But will they do it?

If they do not send Obamacare repeal and tax cuts to Trump’s desk, it was because they continually lied to their voters about what they stood for.
