Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh questioned whether Republicans are really against Obamacare "that much" since they seem to be oblivious to a recent poll showing that 71 percent of voters don't like it.

"Folks, there's 71 percent of voters opposing Obamacare," said Limbaugh on his radio program Tuesday. "That's 71 percent of a universe of people that the Republican Party could forge a relationship with — a political voting relationship. And they haven't, outside of three or four Republicans, made an effort to do it, which leads to an obvious conclusion: Maybe the Republicans don't really dislike Obamacare that much."

The popular conservative talk show host also questioned the motivation of House GOP lawmakers in voting to pass the compromise budget deal struck by Democratic Sen. Patty Murray and Republican Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin that continues funding for the new healthcare law.



"Seventy-one percent!" he said again, referring to a ABC News/Washington Post poll. "It still amazes me that the Republican Party cannot find linkage to that 71 percent. I'm seeing such a lost opportunity here."

"The Republicans just passed a budget that basically locks in the spending for Obamacare because they're afraid of being tarred and feathered with another government shutdown next month," he added.
