Gov. Scott Walker blamed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and other members of his own party’s establishment for inaction in Congress and for not confronting President Obama more vigorously.
In a phone appearance on Glenn Beck’s radio show Monday, the host asked Walker whether members of “the establishment, like Mitch McConnell” are “part of the problem” in Washington.
“Yes, I hear it all the time, and I share that sentiment,” the Wisconsin governor said. “We were told 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?”
Walker also said the American people’s frustration with Republicans in Congress has fueled “non-elected candidates” surging in the polls, a likely reference to real estate mogul Donald Trump, who continues to lead in the polls.
“People are saying loud and clear, ‘Do not dismiss my concerns. Do not dismiss the fact that you told us that Republicans stood for something, and it’s not happening in Washington,’” Walker told Beck. “Now more than ever I think people are yearning they’re crying out.”
