Harry Reid warns of coming ObamaCare ‘train wreck’

There is no conclusive agreement regarding the ultimate amount the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) will cost the American people, but most estimates have it somewhere in the trillion dollar range. It’s a staggering number, especially when you consider the likelihood prices will skyrocket once the bulk of ObamaCare kicks in later this year and in the years to come.

But there is at least one person who still isn’t fazed by the massive price tag: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV).

“More money is needed, says Harry Reid. He shares his colleagues' concerns now that the Affordable Care Act will become a train wreck if it's not implemented properly,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Oh, gee. So in other words, what you're saying is it's going to cost more money than you thought it would.”

According to TheHill.com:

Reid warned that people will not be able to choose health insurance plans on government health exchanges if federal authorities lack the resources to set them up and educate the public.

“Max said unless we implement this properly it’s going to be a train wreck, and I agree with him,” Reid said, echoing a warning delivered last month by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.).

“Well, you know what? Max and you should have gotten together and thought about this earlier,” Glenn said. “You should have listened to me on radio or on Fox. You should have listened to Sean [Hannity] or Rush [Limbaugh] or anybody else.”

“We called it a train wreck back then,” Pat said. “We told you.”

TheHill article goes on to say, “Reid warned the federal government is not spending enough money to implement the law because of Republican opposition to ObamaCare.”

Clearly, the ‘blame Republicans’ mantra is not lost on Sen. Reid.

“No, what they are doing now is they're setting this up and saying, ‘We could have avoided this train wreck but it's the evil Republicans,’ and the American people will believe it,” Glenn said. “I have truly given up on us really winning our country back. I just do not see a way that you're going to be able to. I'm sorry.”

“Wow,” Pat responded in obvious surprise.

“I don't see a way that you're going to be able to put this thing back together,” Glenn continued. “I think you have to save the remnants. I think there's a restart coming. And they know this. This is what they're doing to the entire world. They are resetting the entire system of the world. They are bringing the power down slowly.”

Pat wasn’t quite so pessimistic. Though in light of the recent announcement that Sen. Baucus will not seek reelection in 2014, Pat couldn’t help but wonder if the ObamaCare fiasco played a role.

“I don't know if it's going to hell and we can't save it. I still have a lot of hope that we can but I think this is one of the reasons,” Pat explained. “But to me this is one of the reasons Max Baucus is done. I think Max Baucus has done all the damage he can possibly do, he knows he screwed this thing up, and he's getting out because he doesn't want any more to do with it.”

“Oh, that's good of him,” Glenn said wryly. “I appreciate that.”

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
