Following a stint as a ticket salesman for Major League Baseball’s Kansas City Royals, in the mid-1980s, Limbaugh landed a job as an on-air host at KFBK in Sacramento, California, with the help of a radio executive friend. There, Limbaugh took over Morton Downey Jr.’s slot, and met with success when his ratings surpassed his predecessor’s. Less than a year later, Limbaugh became known as Sacramento’s top radio host.
In 1987, the Federal Communications Commission repealed a long-standing rule known as the Fairness Doctrine, which required both television and radio stations to air for an equal amount of time each side to a political argument. The repeal of the Fairness Doctrine ultimately paved the way for Limbaugh’s now-distinct, politically conservative radio style to take shape. Not long after, the on-air host left KFBK for a position at the ABC Radio Network, bringing his newfound fame with him, as well as a reputation for having strong, right wing ideologies.
The Rush Limbaugh Show, nationally syndicated from New York City by ABC Radio, premiered on August 1, 1988. Known for its heavy political focus and sometimes extreme conservative slant, The Rush Limbaugh Show has been on the air for more than two decades and is credited today as the highest-rated American talk radio program. The show is currently syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks, and can be heard on nearly 600 stations nationwide.
In addition to his success on the radio, Limbaugh makes regular appearances as a political commentator on various TV programs, and has authored a number of magazine articles and books, including 1992’s best-selling The Way Things Ought to Be and 1993’s See, I Told You So. “It’s my job, it’s my life, it’s my career, it’s my passion,” Limbaugh once said about his politically charged career as a radio host, commentator and writer. “I’m doing what I love. I think I’m doing what I was born to do. I have no specific goals from this point forward. I never have had specific goals. I’ve always thought, ‘I know generally what I want to do. I want to be in media, I want to be in radio.’ It’s what I love. It’s what I do best. And I’m open to all opportunities that come my way.”
Limbaugh was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1993.

Sally Jo Blodgette What if can go to "what if we investigate Obama administration for their corrupt ties to Russia " uranium deals, Huge pay for speeches, talking about how " flexible" he will be after the "election" plenty of scandalous stuff
Michael Urban Why does it seem with all the investigations and hearings and lies NOBODY ever seems to be charged, convicted and go to prison? Nothing ever seems to happen to anyone anymore.
Chris Garner MSNBC would have a circular firing squad screaming "impeachment" with Keith Olbermann leading the charge
Chris Poole they would have nailed Bush to the cross......its odd, my liberal friends cared about being spied on, untill trump....now they dont care about anything, as long as they feel it will hurt Trump
Jeff Tyree What if the Republicans had spoke so disrespectful of the previous President as Maxine Waters does about our current, and her, President?
Reuben Tiemens We all know exactly what would have happened. The reason Barack Obama gets away with it is because he's a Democrat, and he's black. That's it, and that's all.
Kita King Mason President Trump is getting a rapid lesson on Democrat Double-standard. He's not a stupid man (contrary to the alt-Left media portrayal), and he certainly has more spine than most of the Republicans in Congress. He'll get ahead of this in no time at all. Every morning I wake up grateful that Donald J Trump is my President. MAGA!
Charles Crites You stay on hold for 2 hours to talk to Rush Limbaugh for the one chance of your whole life and you waste everyone's Time by saying oh we love a Mercury car but now we can't have one because they don't make it. Stupidest call I've ever heard.
Cecilie Weems Stipp If Bush did, and then he did nothing to warn the American people about Obama, then Bush would be as guilty of the mess left behind by Barry, as Barry repeatedly blamed Bush throughout his entire administration because Barry sucked at his job but accepted no personal responsibility for it...What if we just keep talking in circles and see where that gets anyone?...
Wade Bergeron There would be reason to spy on Obama, because the hung out with some of the most radical left in the country. He even announced his run for president in Bill Ayers' house, and to this day there is question of where he was born.
Tim Ducklow We all know that Republicans are held to a much higher standard and the Democrats a much lower one.
Christopher Ryan The democrats in the news media wouldn't shut up about this had that actually happened. But W wasn't a corrupt Chicago politician and O was and is. The good news for conservatives is this: I believe the establishment news media is inadvertently destroying its credibility with an increasing number of likely voters. Think about this - Trump's approval with likely voters is currently at 45% according to Rasmussen. And this is after the healthcare debacle and 2 months of the news media hammering him every day on one thing or another, with the Russian story as a continued running narrative when the news cycle slows down. Even the WSJ has joined the attack as of late. It's been a relentless attack unlike anything I've ever seen in my lifetime. He's almost at 50% *in spite of* an all out assault by democrats in the news media (and I am referring collectively to the news media as a whole as "democrats in the news media" because the current news media's coverage is indistinguishable from DNC talking points)! That tells me there is an increasing number of people - and I'm one of them - who no longer believe or listen to the establishment news media or consult them as a source of information and truth. Contemporary US journalism is irrelevant to me and a latge segment of the population when we want information about this country or the world. And it's not just the national news media that has destroyed their credibility - local news outlets aren't any better. It's ironic but I believe that their very obvious attempt to destroy Trump is actually contributing to their own demise, though I don't think they are aware of this or would agree with the claim if it was made to them. The more people who come to this perspective about the establishment news media the better.
Ron Ritter Racist would be the accusations no matter what the reason. And remember Obama was part of a radical church making for a more plausible reason to spy than supposed business connection.
Bill Smith If you work for the federal government I believe there is no such thing as a pardon, immunity, 5th amendment or ignoring a subpoena when dealing with any United States agency.
Elizabeth Day Happened Today? Day 68: Tarnished. Welcome to Day 68. Trump signed an executive order to unwind Obama’s climate policies. He celebrated the move as a way to promote energy independence and restore thousands of lost coal industry jobs. The order directs the EPA to start the legal process of withdrawing and rewriting the Clean Power Plan. (New York Times) 1/ Democrats call for Nunes to recuse himself in Russia probe. Pelosi and Schiff both say Nunes’ is too close to the White House to lead a thorough investigation into Russia. His behavior has discredited and tarnished the House Intelligence Committee, making it difficult for him to remain credibile. The Committee has scrapped all meetings this week amid the turmoil. (CNN) 2/ Trump administration tried to block Sally Yates from testifying to Congress on Russia. The Justice Department notified Yates earlier this month that the administration considers a great deal of her possible testimony to be barred from discussion in a congressional hearing because the topics are covered by the presidential communication privilege. (Washington Post) 3/ Trump moves decisively to wipe out Obama’s climate-change record. The sweeping executive order seeks to lift a moratorium on federal coal leasing and remove the requirement that federal officials consider the impact of climate change when making decisions. (Washington Post) 4/ Trump tweets: “Russia story is a hoax.” In a 37-minute, four-tweet Twitter tirade, Trump attacks Bill and Hillary Clinton, the “Podesta Russian Company,” the Freedom Caucus, Democrats, and Obamacare. (Politico) 5/ Congress may stiff Trump on funding to build his wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump’s hoping to jump-start constructure with money in a must-pass government funding bill. Democratic leaders are vowing to block any legislation that includes a single penny for the wall. The result could end in a government shutdown next month if the bill doesn’t pass. (Politico) 6/ Trump wants to do tax reform and infrastructure at the same time. The shift to infrastructure is to buy the support of Democrats while avoiding negotiations with the Freedom Caucus, which sank the health care bill. The infrastructure plan was likely going to be parked until next year. (Axios) 7/ Paul Manafort has engaged in a series of real estate deals in New York City over the past 11 years that fit a pattern used in money laundering. The former Trump campaign manager if also facing multiple investigations for his political and financial ties to Russia. (WYNC) 8/ The White House is asking Congress to cut $18 billion on everything from education to mental health programs. The cut would help pay for Trump’s military supplemental request, the proposed border wall, and the rest absorbed to help prevent a government shutdown. (Politico) 9/ House Republicans and the White House have restarted negotiations on legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Just days after Trump said he was moving on to other issues, the White House is now saying hope they can still score the kind of big legislative victory that has so far eluded Trump. (New York Times) 10/ Trump believes the Supremacy Clause bars state lawsuits against a sitting president. A lawsuit claims Trump tarnished an “Apprentice” alum’s reputation and accuses him of kissing her twice in 2007 and attacking her in a hotel room. (Hollywood Reporter) 11/ Sanctuary city mayors fire back at Trump administration’s threat to cut fed funding. “If they actually act to take away our money, we’ll see them in court,” vowed New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. (Fox News)
John G. Taddy In fact, didn't somebody in the state department access Obama's passport records (unauthorized, of course) and was immediately fired? In Obama's world, the guy would have been promoted to head of State Dept. security.
Russell Carl What if I spent 15 seconds more talking to my brother? Would he not have been at that place? You know that place he was killed on his Harley ! That day we were all just going for coffee. What If? Is a quick ticket to the looney bin!
Taria Wilson does anyone remember the FBI dossiers computer that went missing during the Clinton presidency ? It finally just 'showed up' some time later. No accounting for who had it or how far info went on something like 900 people. Th Clintons collected info on people for years.
Mark W. Huddleston So you are suggesting that the libs are admitting to spying and will now claim GW did it is that right? Naturally it would have to be blamed on GW so they can say they didn't do anything "ALL" other prezzis didn't do huh?
Joe McClure What if ya'll try to pull your heads out and truly make America great again! Both sides. I do find it hilarious that some say oh no he didn't do that... The hell he didn't. Get real he did it to everyone else. Probably still doing it...
Dave Brown Right or wrong, any president who wouldn't use everything at his disposal to spy on the opposion would have to have no imagination and total confidence in the system. A person like that could not make it to the Oval Office.
Larry Bordinger Ya mean to spy on an and leak it to the news to undermine 0bama... They would take that and run with it. The truth is it does not take a rocket scientist to see the true nature of 0bama!
Jon Lesue The only way this "what if game" would actually work is if we convince all the libs that these things were actually done by Bush before the story breaks about the fact that it was all done by Obama. They need to think that these were crimes that Bush committed. After they are seething with rage and hatred for these horrible crimes, then we can break it to them that it was all actually Obama. We all know that even with this scenario playing out, when confronted with the truth, they would still say it's all ok. They don't really care about these things happening. They don't even care that laws are broken. They just want what they want and any means to get it is ok!
Grant Norvell What if Obama and the majority of his staff had ties to Russian operatives in the elections and you were all like nbd. Shell of your self, rush.
David Williams If Bush had spied on Obama Schumer would be so happy that he wouldn't be pulling off a liberal trifecta in a restaurant bullying a woman like a crazed terrorist...........And They're coming to take me away, Ha-ha They're coming to take me away, Ho-ho Hee-hee-haa-haa To the funny farm Where life is beautiful all the time And I'll be happy to see those Nice young men in their clean white coats and They're coming to take me away, ha-ha!

Julie Beth Rush Limbaugh, "They're well underway" makes it sound as if they're on their way to succeeding. The unhinged, irrational and nonsensical left will NOT win this one. Good will win out over evil. Let's have a little faith!
David G. McCaskell Trump needs to push full repeal and open the insurance market. We elected Trump to get rid of clinton, and to put congress(both sides) in their place. If he wants everyone on board that elected him, he needs to follow through on this issue. The MSM is making it look like he is a typical Washington Politician, and we know better than that. #fullrepeal #openmarket
Gayleen Lefevre The thing that worries me is that he's allowing them to. Hes being nice to them and you can't be nice to a Democrat! They will give you a hug just so they can stab you in the back. If we didn't learn that from the past 8 years of watching Obama and Hillary then we were not paying attention and shame on us!!!
Anne Williams Wildrick It's very sad. We finally have a president who listens to Americans and we have a political party sabotaging him at every turn. This is truly a sad time for this country.
Kelly Britton Personally, I think that every day they show more and more people exactly who they are and what they stand for. I don't see them destroying President Trump, in the least. As the old saying goes, "Give them enough rope and they will hang themselves."
Greg Griffin Does anyone in their right mind believe that if the Trump team was involved in treasonous activities during the General election, they wouldn’t have been immediately taken into custody by the applicable authorities? A Democratic administration fully supportive of Hillary Clinton was in office at the time. It simply defies logic to believe the President himself wouldn’t have directed the DOJ to apprehend them on the spot. It would have been grossly incompetent not to do so. What is really going on here?
Jade Dean Tibbits How are they destroying him? you mean when Obamacare implodes in six months.....that Ford, Charter Communications announce investment in America.....they are not doing jack squat....quit watching CNN Rush Limbaugh
Kenneth J. McCoy I think what Rush means is that the democrats are attacking Trumps staff one at a time to take them down. They've already taken Flynn out, gotten Jess Sessions to recuse himself from the Russia investigation, and now they're focusing on the security chief who supported the Presidents wiretapping claim. (Just forgot his name) This is how they're trying to destroy the president, and people like Lindsey Graham, John Kasick, and John McCain are helping them to do it!
D.h. Aiken It's not the Democrats I'm worried about, it's the Republicans. There is absolutely no excuse for the defeat of the healthcare bill last week. They've had 7 years, and they should have been ready with a GOOD bill they all suported. Now, they're promising to do it again. "Same song, second verse.........."
Terry Bangley The democrats, the liberal media, Hollywood elites, but then again these usual suspects tried to destroy Bush, Bush, Reagan, nothing new here, just the same old song and dance, it actually shows how incompetent they are, with 99% of the broadcast media being liberally biased,and they still can't destroyed a republican president
Darla McGinnis Otwell Our government is broken. The Democratic representatives are puppets of the Democratic party. They must do as they are told and unify and vote the way their leader tells them. If not, they lose campaign money to run for re-election and are black listed. The Republican party is divided into several groups that behave the same way. No one votes for what they individually feel is right. The art of compromise has been lost. Trump is really an independent. He, like most Americans, shares some views from each party. If our system wasn't so broken we could have found common ground. They don't want common ground. Each party wants to win, nothing gets done, and the American people lose.
Dawn N Darren Hippler The part that makes me angry? We elected him. We the people, so why are elected officials fighting it when the people have spoken. Maybe we can speak louder on the next election+
Donald Petty Rush Limbaugh Quit lying to yourself, there is only one reason we do not have a healthcare bill and it is not the Democrats. The sorry, good for nothing Republicans are a waste of taxpayers money. They have both houses and the White House, Now please tell me who is undermining the President of the United States again.
Sri Kumar Isn't what republicans did during Obama presidency? Also, Trump is his biggest enemy. I voted thinking her will drain the swamp. But swamp is even more corrupt.
Loren Jury Congressmen like Maxine Waters, Luis Gutierrez, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Chuck Schumer, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Ex-President Barack Obama and more are the reasons this government is failing. Government criminals of every kind have to go. Getting rid of Paul Ryan is just a start. What about the hundreds of members of Congress who care more about partisan party politics than they care about the health and welfare of the people who elected them? Everyone wants to make this about Trump or Republicans or Democrats. The fact is our Government NO LONGER WORKS! Not just for one party or the other, they are so busy trying to ruin each other, they are destroying their purpose. Our entire government should be ashamed at the least and replaced at best. While our government is busy trying to destroy each other and steal every dollar they can from the people, our enemies are destroying our country from within. America has got to rid herself of all this subversion, corruption and personal wealth building at the expense of our freedom. The corrupt in Congress, our Executive Department, and Judicial System have got to be eliminated. If we have to dissolve the entire government and rebuild it, it's time to act! That includes the past President Obama and his criminal followers.
Mary Lou Lovell They will not stop. The best antidote is to successfully improve our economy. President Donald Trump is trying to do everything humanly possible to make that happen. Many of us continue to pray for divine favor to help save this nation. So important to keep on supporting his administration no matter what wacky, roadblocks they come up with.
David E. Smith RUSH, we have ONE party in place! ONE! They are all but 10% Republicrats, the other 10% sit in the corner. Until Merica sees this, this ship will sink! Donkeys couldn't win 20 years ago so they JOINED the elephants and took over. Ta-da! We cannot play politics 2017 with 1970 rules.
Steven Moncus Trump isn't helping by criticizing those that didn't vote for the recent healthcare legislation. He's beginning to look just like the rest of the clowns in Washington. If Obamacare isn't repealed Libertarians and Independents are going to be taking seats in the midterms and beyond.
Martha Clay Hendrix It's not destroying Trump. To his supporters it is just cementing the facts behind why he won. If the republicans aren't careful, come the next election, not a single House or Senate incumbent will be returning to Washington.
Bob Thompson Time to quit screwing around. You can't work with the Dems. You have two years to make major changes. Don't make the same mistake Odummy did. Go nuclear & get something done. Use the power of your majorities & move us forward.
Andrew M. Miller They can't win on policy and ideas, so they have to destroy their opposition. And, every single "enemy" becomes SNL'd. Belittling, liable, demonizing...that's all they've got.
Debbie Hart I think they are going to destroy themselves, John Q. public has been awakened. Keep pushing and educating everyone you know.
Charise Nesbitt Exactly! They will not be successful Rush! His supporters are fighting against them in every way possible! He and his team are taken before the Almighty God every day! We cannot lose!
Jenny Landon Lewis the Republicans want him out because anyone with a brain can see he is incompetent-does't have a clue . The Democrats just have to sit back and wait

Mike Spanhanks I keep telling folks it's not that Trump is president. It's that Hillary is not. Would not matter who on the right won. Even Cruze would have the same difficulty with the democrats. They have become America's enemy. No matter what the democrats say about being patriotic do not believe it. They no longer care about real democracy or the constitution. This is the transformation Obama brought to us. It will take a century to undo his mess.
The Chepo Team Donald Trump is my President! Because I'm American hispanic and I'm tired of how all of these coward racist liberals that hate America like Obama and his shadow government bureaucrats are trying to turn this great country into a 3rd world one. Unfortunately, one of the biggest problems we have right now is the media and entertainment that are always trying to tell us how to think. They have created enough imbeciles that would re-elect a failure like Obama. Even more, I'm supposed to bow down to anti-American Obama, love liberal policies no matter how destructive they are, love bigger enslaving government, and be in favor of illegal immigration because of the color of my skin... disgusting. That's why I and others support Donald Trump. Please support the movement by liking our facebook page, And let's Make America Strong Again! Thank you.
Larry Keller To Democrats, working with them mean doing it their way. Working with the Democrats is one of the most counter-productive things Republicans can do.
Mary McCarthy The Democrats do NOT want to work with Republicans. They want to destroy them. Period. Done. It is very simple and we are all witness to this every single day. Lindsey Graham and John Kasich...go away...you are not relevant.
Thomas Srock You mention Kasich and Graham, you're really talking about Democrats in Republican clothing. If it acts and smells like a Democrat, it is one no matter what clothes it wears.
Jared Keesee I wanted to call in to say this but I'll post here. John McCain said Rand Paul was a Russian agent. Well Rand Paul should say who are you to call anyone a foreign agent when you take money from George Soros and are therefore a Soros agent. A man who's dedicated his life to destroying America and many other states.
Shay McDaniel Do any Democrats "cross the aisle" to work with common sense Conservative Republicans? Not one. I have never seen it happen, and if it did, that Democrat would be gone, kicked out of the party and scorned. If you want 'compromise', it has to work both ways.
Malky Katz Lindsey Graham and John Kasich are democrats. Look up their policies. Is anything they stand for, republican? Having a little R next to your name doesn't mean you're republican.
Michael Urban Democrats given the opportunity would destroy Republicans and not work with them. Screw working with them! Run them over at any opportunity, go in for the kill, they would! No mercy any more.
Matthew R. Glenn Pop quiz. Which party publicly stated that their only mission would be to obstruct the opposing party in all matters regardless of purpose, especially those of the president? You have a log in your eye.
Jade Dean Tibbits how are they doing in wiping out Republicans.....they hold the least amount of power since 1920.....it is not a Democrat party...it is a progressive socialist party in a center right country
Dianna Moore I disagree. I believe their agenda is to Rule America. Take our money, holdings and turn us into subservient peasents. Hence the New World Order they keep referring to. If Hillary had be come president this is were they were heading. They want to Rule us, not be Ruled by the People. As it is meant to be . Break the People, break the country, take their independents and make them dependent.
Shari Cunningham Trump couldn't get enough of the media for years and years promoting himself! He put himself in front of TV cameras every chance he got! Now he doesn't like the media. Too bad. They're not going anywhere.
Dennis Hinkle Just like the British hired German Soldiers to help fight in the Revolutionary War, the Democrats are using illegal immigrants to stuff the ballot boxes over time. Their party numbers, in relation to Republican and Independent numbers, have been on the decline for a few years. The best way to keep up with their long range strategy was to recruit foreigners to vote Democrat. Having lost the election in both branches has stalled their agenda. Hillary needed another liberal judge in order to begin dismantling the Constitution and our Bill of Rights. Their objective is to rebuild American into their own image and political philosophy. Using the ballot box in order to over throw a country is not a new concept. Nevertheless, many people have fallen for the Democrat strategy without seeing it. It is well covered by their promises of endless giveaways and funded projects. --
Joel McBride The Democrats are the most destructive force in America today. When you hear or read people's comments about being sick, and tired about having to apologize for being Christian, or patriotic what they're really saying is they're sick, and tired of liberalism, and all who adhere to it as their religion.
Kathy Andrews Democrats do not seem to want to work with the Republican party. They should realize they are suppose to be working for us the American people. Not to be whiny people who are acting like children because they did not get their way. In life things do not always go yourvway. So put on your big boy pants and do your job for us the American people
Denny Barker Lindsey has to go! We South Carolinians have vote him out! Next election he's gone! I'll never vote straight party again. We've not had anyone to replace him and I would never consent to vote democrat. So id have to vote independent or libertarian.
Beverly Schmidt Democrats who refuse to work with Our Elected President should be banned from receiving any pay compensation. They were elected to represent citizens, not to destroy a President.
Winnie McFarland That's ridiculous on so many levels. Rush is one of the ones who started all this right wing hate and when it turned out to be profitable for him, many others jumped on board.
James McWilliams I disagree with Rush on this. The legislature is supposed to work on behalf of all the American people and that would require working with the Democratic Party. It is no wonder our country is so divided.
Karla Smith You forgot to add Spicer to that list. Yesterday he said that they've learned that they need to work with the Dems. That's what Trump has learned from the recent failure of that horrible healthcare bill. Really?
Micha'elnDennis Dans Teach the democrats they are not running things, the Republicans has the majority of the house and Senate! It's time for these Republican's to stand together! This is so ridiculous!
Bob Fain The Democrats didn't work with Republicans when Obama Care was forced through with out any Republican support. The even changed the rules so they could do it. Liberals try to destroy anyone who doesn't agree with them, Ignore them and try to undo the damage they've caused. Compromising will just sabotage any chance of turning the Country around.
Doug Greathouse The Libs are a hateful lot. I agree that you have to out flank them. After many years of being on this planet, the Left has gotten worse each year. I see no end in sight.
Nancy Leggat Branem Kasich, Graham and McCain need to cross the aisle and become democrats. They are not republicans. They are as much the problem as Pelosi and Schumer are in promoting division and being career politicians.

John Bretti Actually, based on what you said, Obama resembles Hitler more than Trump, especially when you consider their views on Israel.
Joanna Domagalski Kahlke I think a lot of the morons using the word fascism and comparing Trump to Hitler need to brush up on their history. Fascism has been on display a lot lately, and it hasn't been by Conservatives or Trump supporters, i.e. Berkeley.
Terry Bangley democrats have more in common with hilter than republicans,, they both hate jews, they both love muslims. how much more proof do we need that democrats always accuse the republicans of doing and being what they themselves are
Jae Lee Hitler was an agitator by profession before he took office in Germany. Obama was a professional agitator by profession before her took office! Trump was a deal maker, a person who brought people together to get things done!
Dave Wyler Or Obama! Isn't he the one that forced Obama Care on everyone? Talking about shooting people, isn't that what the Clintons are known to do? Okay, so they have someone do their dirty work for them.
John Reynolds The only Hitler and facist actions are only seen on the left! Black hoodies, face masks, pepper spray, violance! That sure reminds me of Nazis and Musselini Fascist's?
Tracy Schuster The leftists usually admire communist authoritarian and totalitarian dictatorships...mao, Stalin, Chavez, Castro...Hitler was a national socialist...socialist is the key word...they were all on the left of the political spectrum...not the right.
Nancy Leggat Branem Rush, you are expecting some sort of common sense in their analogy of Trump to Hitler. There is none. It's pure ignorance.
Scott Henderson The "enlightened" left doesn't understand that Republicans aren't afraid of disagreeing with their own party or President unlike the vote in lock step, lemming, we have to pass bill to see what's in it democrats.
Robert All Rush you're trying to reason with these people!?! I applaud you for your effort but it's pointless. When you have a mental disorder, all common sense goes out the window.
Mike Shaul President Trump is going to continue have problems with both Democrats and corrupt Republicans because his reorganization and reduction of the size and functions of the massive bureaucracy is going to impact much of the money flow for Members of Congress, and we all know the money flow is the most important issue to most Members of Congress. Such a shame our government is For Sale.
Carlos Bello The waahington establishment only care about their intrest and not tbe people , the only time they remember the voters is when a election comes around .So lets not forget when election time comes around.
Matthew Wilmes Trump as Hitler was always a ludicrous comparison to anyone that knew any history or human nature at all. In the entire history of dictators, you won't find one who was In the mainstream public eye for 30 years for nonpolitical reasons and was already rich. Not one.
D.h. Aiken When will the Republicans realize that it is because of this so-called leadership that made Donald Trump our president rather than an "established" Republican. The president's only mistake was giving the House Republicans the benefit of the doubt that they knew what they were doing. This was such a wasted opportunity.
Scot Adkins Remember folks Reagan was hated in the media too . ,now.they cannot deny he was one of the greats well suffer 8 years of berating Trump , but in 16 years we can say yup I helped vote in another of the great presidents
Michael Love The Trump presidency is not an administration, it's more like a freak show of incompetent, lying and deceitful marauders. Whether they lie about jobs, fail to understand how insurance works or flub every aspect of foreign policy, you have to wonder if they would be less damaging if they just did nothing at all. When everything they say is false and everything they do is wrong, it's either the greatest con of all time or the true exemplification of the government being run by crooks and an insane orange clown.
Liz Lockner I guess he thought he could offer a re-name and us blockheads out here in the hinterlands wouldn't know the difference. Maybe it would help if they told us in laymen's terms where it was substantively different. Not just offer us a "De-fund PP" carrot.
G Paul Soria Rush, they're all jelly heads...they believe what they've been taught by academia. Knowledge is one thing but wisdom is a whole other story.
John Cheney you're going to confuse them with historical references...all their too cool for school friends use those big words and catch phrases, so they have to use them too...you know, to fit in with the hip crowd who don't know jack but have a phd in bull shix.
Clark Hartman The same could be said for the protests and women's marches. A true fascist would not allow those kind of events to take place, whether they were peaceful or not. Hitler would arrest or more likely murder every single one of the protesters. People need to just take a deep breath, exhale the hysteria and get a grip.
Anita Lowe Why is he blaming the Freedom Caucus, he is going with the wrong people, he needs to rid of Priebus. Now he wants to work with dems? How will that reform(now they changed to tax cuts), repeal and or whatever he has promised to do, look like anything we thought we were voting for?
Damir Tr Because people in America are so uneducated due to the fact that the left has intentionally defunded school programs especially for minorities to keep them dumb so that they can control them they continue to get to their vote and continue to do the same thing over and over that's how
Bryan Maxwell There is no plan to repeal the mandate. Truth is showing in this farce of new bills that don't pass Wake up folks Healthcare has busted just like housing. Prices are too high and unsustainable. Prices must come down to make progress Eliminate insurance concept period
Mitch Sims Because it has never been his intentions to repeal Obamacare, nor build the wall. His tax reform bill will also fail. There will be no term limits. It's business as usual in Washington.
Andrew Edwin Mitchell Take the Money and Run . . TMR. If the Democrats were smart they would have realized this was the best deal they could get and vore for it. It would meant that the Republican Party, and Trump, if he choose to sign it would own Obamacare, too. It would have all but destroyed Trump. presidency if he signed it, like the 'Read my limps, no more taxes' betrayal of the elder Bush that gave us a slit vote and slick Willie. The status quo remains the same, for now. and outright repeal of Obamacare is still a viable option. Unfortunately for that to happen that idiot, Paul Ryan has to be removed as Speaker. Paul Ryan has no clue as to how thoroughly he is despised, even more after this betrayal and debacle.

James Hodges II Lowering taxes shouldn't be a battle right now, because Republicans have the House, Senate, and White House. If tax cuts are not made it is because Republicans are liars.
Sharon Lundy Really.. You'd think they won the way the deceptive media spins everything.. Half truths and bad editing..Hannity is correct ..Journalism is dead!
Clay Vaughn The democrats sole function is to oppose Republicans. The Republicans have establishment members that are equally opposed to true conservatives. Until Republicans can work together for the good of the people, they'll never achieve anything meaningful for the people because the democrats will not compromise. They've proven it time and time again and until we're really to face that, then prepare yourself to keep losing.
Chepo Team As American hispanics, we are tired of how all of these coward racist liberals that hate America like Obama and his shadow government bureaucrats are trying to turn this great country into a 3rd world one. Unfortunately, one of the biggest problems we have right now is the media and entertainment that are always trying to tell us how to think. They have created enough imbeciles that would re-elect a failure like Obama. Even more, we're supposed to bow down to anti-American Obama, love liberal policies no matter how destructive they are, love bigger enslaving government, and be in favor of illegal immigration because of the color of our skin... disgusting. That's why we support President Donald J. Trump. Fellow patriots, FOLLOW our great pro-America page "Chepo Team", the only true patriotic cartoon comic strip. And let's Make America Great Again! Thank you.
Cliff Dulcich Rush,. When will people quit calling the left democrats and call them The Socialist communist party that it really is . I have followed your program since Sacto. I like so many my age (82) are fed up with the "Mollycoddling of the left and their Rhino friends Cliff.
Georgia Palermo Rush, I'm fed up. Utterly fed up. I can count on one hand the reps and senators I'd keep. The others are worse than useless. They're an actual threat to the republic.
Scott Brennan As long as RINOS run the Repub party nothing that benefits the American taxpayer will get done. It shouldn't be a battle - it should be a done deal with nary a dissenting voice from the Repub side of the aisle.
Brian Darrington Freedom Caucus=morons. What a Blown opportunity! Republicans have a dealer in the White House ready to make some deals and these guys don't have any actual ideas, only symbolic outrage.
Stan Goswick If Rhino Ryan and 20 or so other Republicans were replaced the others might understand voters are through with their incompetence.
Tony Prado You keep putting everything on the democrats when the GOP are now in power to do something. Quit your blaming on the wrong party. You had 8 years of obstruction and it's time to put up and shut up. So far, it's not looking to good. Time to reassess that art of the deal. Right, rushbo?
Kathie Urban Sensinger The MSM thinks that if they don't report it it's not happening. They honestly think the American people are stupid.
Amy Juliano Hulse Republicans don't know how to WIN. They sabotaged their own leading candidate during the election and they're doing it again to their President. You can't win a game with a star quarterback and teammates who don't know how to catch a pass. It's really a sad situation to watch.
Dennis Hinkle With a new Republican President, a large majority in the House and a slight one in the Senate, the Democrats are irrelevant in my opinion. We do not need their votes. They can join us or ride in the back of the bus, as Obama said once. Reaching across the isles has not worked for several decades, because we keep loosing ground. I am not willing to give up anything else to Democrats. --
LaRae Patriquin Paul Ryan is messing with our minds. First he gives us a health bill, we can't support; next it will be an atrocious tax bill. He's trying to sabotage Trump and the conservatives. I hope that he gets caught in the trap that he's been setting.
Nate Keller I suspect Trump did not genuinely want healthcare reform. He wanted his voters to believe that he did. This bill was a pathetic excuse for a repeal. “pass it so we know what’s in it” is the same thing Republicans got upset at Democrats for doing… what’s the difference this time around?
Joe Creaney It seems that too many Republican would want to run as Democrats but Democrats are less appealing than buckets of excrement in their districts.
Daniel Angel This will never pass !? The media and liberal traitors are gonna say over n over all in lock step no matter what's in it that its tax cuts for rich !? We all know that
Stephanie Gallagher "It’s just you can’t have elected people do it thinking they’ll get reelected if they do it. But you can do it." -Rush Limbaugh I think it's high time our members of Congress have term limits. All of them. Career politicians don't seem to do any good. If there were term limits they might actually do something for the good of doing it and not base it on whether it will get them reelected. Just some wishful thinking. 😑
Rick Nuttall Something better be done with that Communist written, leftist piece of garbage called Obamascare, and taxes, or there won't be a country left to do anything for!!!!!
James Edwards The Republicans lead by Trump, Ryan and McConnell are now the New Democrats and the Democrats are now the Socialist party... The quicker you figure that out the quicker you'll understand everything.. A lot of people think Trump's a conservative lol...
Ellen Andrew Get rid of these people who won't do their job. It is time to get them out and stop their free ride. Greedy self absorbed dead weights.
Perry Hammons One must consider these sky high taxes were put in place by the same career politicians that spent $20 Trillion+++ We didn't have on buying votes to keep them in power. They are dispicable people. There is no way to get rid of them! We are just screwed. Who doesn't know that?
Michael Warren we all know what a snake oil salesman looks like by now be it a liberal or a RINO , enough already . lets make the congress do what was promised for a CHANGE or get the hell out .
Mike White The problem is that people like to win so they vote for a candidate and when their candidate wins they stick with them even when they turn out just like the politicians they replaced.
Andrea Strauss Exactly! Honestly, today I am angry at the RINOs and at President Trump. This dynamic is what we had for 8 years and I am done with it! I think that unless Trump partners with Conservatives, his reform agenda will fail. But someone is telling him to shun Conservatives and I am LIVID!
