President Obama Blames Rush Limbaugh Again for Gridlock in Washington
As CNN’s Chris Cuomo wrote on Twitter, he interviewed President Obama Friday and the president blamed radio host Rush Limbaugh, once again, for the gridlock that's going on in Washington saying, "Most Congressional Republicans are against the idea of defunding the Affordable Care Act, but, again, they’re too afraid to say so because of Limbaugh." The Affordable Care Act is also know as Obamacare.

The president added, “Congress doesn’t have a whole lot of core responsibilities, one core responsibility is passing a budget, which they have not done yet. The other core responsibility that they’ve got is to pay the bills that they’ve already accrued.”
According to The Blaze.com, the president went on to explain how proposals to defund Obamacare are bad for America. “Once Congress takes care of its core responsibilities it can take on bigger structural changes.”
Rush Limbaugh Responds To Obama's Claim Of Republicans Being Afraid Of Limbaugh
When Chris Cuomo asked Obama, “How much of the lack of action in Washington do you put on yourself in terms of blame?” The president responded by saying, “Ultimately the buck stops with me, I get frustrated, and I’ve said before and I continue to say I’m willing to do whatever it takes to get Congress and Republicans in Congress in particular to think less about politics and party and think more about what’s good for the country.”
President Obama Blames Washington Gridlock on ... Rush Limbaugh?
President Obama ended blaming Rush Limbaugh again with, “I’ve made this argument to my Republican friends privately, and, by the way, sometimes they say to me privately, ‘I agree with you, but I’m worried about a primary from, you know, somebody in the tea party back in my district’ or, ‘I’m worried about what Rush Limbaugh is going to say about me on radio,’” he said.
The president has blamed his problems on Rush Limbaugh before back in 2012 when he said, “I genuinely believe there are Republicans out there who would like to work with us but they’re fearful of their base and they’re concerned about what Rush Limbaugh might say about them, and as a consequence we get the kind of gridlock that makes people cynical about government.”
