Scott Walker thinks people in the GOP establishment, like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, that are part of the problem in Washington.
Walker, appearing on Glenn Beck’s radio show Monday stated, “We were told that if Republicans got the majority in the United States Senate, there would be a bill on the president’s desk to repeal Obamacare. It is August, where is that bill, where was that vote?”
Glenn Beck: I wrote a piece online this weekend about Mike Lee. There was an article in the New York Times about Mike Lee and it talked about how Mitch McConnell is telling Mike Lee, who is one of the most reasonable, sound thinkers in the Senate, how he’s got to decide between these Tea Party freaks and his party. And Mitch McConnell is part of the problem. Will you go so far as saying that there are people in the GOP that are part of the establishment, like Mitch McConnell that are part of the problem?
Scott Walker: Yes. I hear it all the time and I share that sentiment. This was, we were told that if Republicans got the majority in the United States Senate, there would be a bill on the president’s desk to repeal Obamacare. It is August, where is that bill, where was that vote? We were told they would do something about illegal immigration. If it hadn’t been for me and 24 other governors out there. The president would be able to do what he claimed to do 22 times, last November and then went off an did it a couple weeks after the election. It’s because I and Governor Abbot and 23 other governors went to court and stopped him. We got a stay from doing that. It’s not because the Congress, a Republican-led Congress did anything to stop him from doing that.
