Rand Paul’s hilarious Obamacare slam

Slowly but surely Obamacare makes the transformation from a really bad policy to a really bad policy in action. Companies that offer premium insurance plans have been punished for doing so, and now doctors will have to conform to a massive list of codes for every imaginable scenario. On radio, Glenn played the clip of Sen. Rand Paul exposing the ridiculousness and folly that is Obamacare.

"Well, I'm a physician and when you come in to see me, I put down a little diagnostic code and there's ‑‑ there was 18,000 of these," Rand Paul explained. "But under ObamaCare, they're going to keep you healthier because now there's going to be 140,000 codes. Included among these codes will be 312 new codes for injuries from animals, 72 new codes for injuries just from birds, 9 new codes for injuries from the Macaw. Macaw? I've asked physicians all over the country, have you ever seen an injury from a Macaw."

"There's two new injury codes under ObamaCare for injuries sustained from a turtle. And you might say, well, turtles can be dangerous, but why do you have to have two codes? Well, you have ‑‑ your doctor needs to inform the government whether you've been struck by a turtle or bitten by a turtle. There is a new code for ‑‑ I see some alcohol out there ‑‑ walking into a lamp post. There's also a code for walking into a lamp post "subsequent encounter," if you don't learn. There is a code for injuries sustained from burning water‑skis. Your government's just trying to take care of ya."

"Burning water‑skis. How exactly ‑‑ how do you set water‑skis on fire... while you're in the water?" Glenn asked.

"Wouldn't this just fall under the good old 'miscellaneous'? Do you really need specific codes?" Stu said.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
