Hypocrisy: Democratic senators now support an Obamacare delay

Remember when Senator Ted Cruz and the TEA Party were lambasted as ‘extremists’ and ‘anarchists’ for fighting to delay in Obamacare? Well, during an appearance on The O’Reilly Factor last night, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced a potential bill that would delay all Obamacare mandates until January 1, 2015. Where is the mudslinging and name-calling now?

“Ted Cruz is being pilloried… But they're doing everything they can to destroy him. Why? Why? Because he's a terrorist, because he is an anarchist, because he wants to go around the law, a law that has already been passed, a law that has already gone through the Supreme Court, and he's asking to destroy the United States of America because of his unreasonable request for a delay of one year of Obamacare,” Glenn said on radio this morning.

“Now, let me introduce you to the Democrat who just introduced a bill to do the exact same thing. And let me introduce you to a President who is now saying that he'll delay it at least eight weeks. But, wait a minute, Mr. President, a delay? It's already been passed. It's already gone through the Supreme Court. Mr. President, a delay? Why would you want to delay? Are you trying to bring down the United States of America? Are you so unreasonable? Are you a terrorist? You're an al-Qaida member. You're an anarchist. You're anti-government,” he continued. “And we're not talking about old dusty past history. We're talking about a debate that happened last week, last week… And now we have a Democratic senator doing exactly the same thing, and he is positioned as reasonable. I cannot take it another single day. I can't take it.”

During his interview with O’Reilly, Sen. Manchin said the bill he is working on Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA) would ensure there are “no fines whatsoever” for individuals who do not sign up for a health insurance plan by March 31, 2014.

Sen. Manchin also confirmed that right now he only has three other Democrats willing to work with him on the Obamacare delay bill.

Meanwhile, the mainstream media finally seems to have woken up (at least temporarily). CBS News has uncovered a serious pricing issue with healthcare.gov that dramatically underestimates the true cost of insurance.

“CBS News has uncovered what this President is doing,” Glenn said. “And let me tell you, when you hear this report, you ask yourself: If this were a private insurance company, if would this private insurance company be called on Capitol Hill and have a full investigation? The answer is yes. “

CBS reports that, when calculating cost, healthcare.gov lumps people into two broad categories: 49 or under or 50 and older. Prices for everyone in the ‘49 or under’ group are based on what a 27-year-old would pay. In the ‘50 or older’ group, prices are based on what a 50-year-old would pay.

In the clip, CBS provides the following example:

We ran the numbers for a 48-year-old in Charlotte, North Carolina, ineligible for subsidies. According to healthcare.gov, she would pay $231 a month. But the actual plan on Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina's website costs $360 – more than a 50 percent increase. The difference, Blue Cross Blue Shield requests your birthday before, providing more accurate estimates.

“Let's be fair. Let's be fair,” Glenn said. “Healthcare.gov does say the price that you're seeing here is just an estimate and the price many times could be lower. It does not say ‘could be higher.’ Could be lower. Many times could be lower… If this were a company, it would be out of business, and it would be under investigation for fraud.”

With all of hypocrisy and lies floating around D.C. at the moment, Glenn called on his listeners to take action.

Firstly, Glenn asked his audience to share their experiences with Obamacare thus far. Has your previous insurance plan been canceled because of Obamacare? Does Obamacare offer you a plan that does not compare to your previous insurance?

You can email copies of whatever paperwork you have received from your insurance company to INSURANCECANCELLED@THEBLAZE.COM. You can also share them on Twitter by tweeting @GlennBeck with #InsuranceCancelled or on Glenn’s Facebook page.

Similarly, Glenn would also like to hear from you if you have received fundraising materials from the Republican National Committee and have sent them back with a note telling them you plan to #DefundTheGOP.

“I also want you to tweet and Facebook and send me your pictures of your GOP fundraising letter coming in saying, ‘You got to help us defeat the evil Democrats.’ I want you to write on it, ‘All of my money from here on out goes to Freedom Works and the Senate Conservatives Fund or whatever it is that you want to say. Doesn't have to be those two. Doesn't have to be anything. Just say, ‘I'm giving no more money,’” Glenn explained. “When you do that, I just want you to take a picture of it and email it to me, and then I want you to send it to them. Let them pay for the stamp, too.”

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
