After years of trying, Republicans finally control both chambers of Congress and the White House, but are making no progress on the conservative agenda, talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said Monday.

"Six months into a Republican administration, after how many years of promises to, say, repeal Obamacare, and we're not an inch closer to it in reality than we were before last year's election?" he told his radio audience. "It's not gonna get any better than this. The only way it could get better is if this Republican majority were populated by more conservatives and different ideological types."

Limbaugh also noted President Donald Trump's tweet earlier in the day in which he called on investigations into Hillary Clinton and any connection with Russians.

"What Trump is talking about here . . . 'Why aren't these Republican committees, why aren't these Republican investigators — why isn't my attorney general — looking into Hillary Clinton's crimes?'" Limbaugh said. "If you're gonna investigate what all went on with Russia, how in the world do you leave the Democrats out of it? How do you leave Hillary Clinton out of it?

"The Republicans run the show! It's time for the Republicans to start acting like it. Politics is what it is. The Republicans don't appear to want to play the game."

Limbaugh, who has long complained Republicans don't follow up on their promises, no matter how much power they win, wasn't hopeful things will change "in our lifetimes."

"It's not gonna get any better than this, and I cannot believe that this opportunity is not seen by these very Republicans we're talking about in Washington — in the House, in the Senate, throughout the administration," he said.

"I know the old saw," he continued. "They didn't think they were gonna win, therefore they weren't prepared. So what? They did win. It ought to be euphoric. It ought to be exciting. Apparently, it isn't."
