President Obama says he’ll listen to anyone with a healthcare reform plan… except for Republicans

One the primary tactics the left uses against those who oppose Obamacare is the notion that no one has presented a better alternative. On December 4, President Obama had this to say to the naysayers:

OBAMA: Folks who were criticizing [Obamacare] don't seem to have any ideas in terms of how to reduce costs to ensure millions of people get coverage for the first time. I want work with anybody to implement and improve this law effectively. You got good ideas? Bring them to me. I'd be happy to listen. But that's not what's happening.

According to President Obama, he willing to work with anyone whose “got good ideas” – but apparently “that’s not what’s happening.” Well, Congressman Tom Price (R-GA) just so happened to be a guest on Fox and Friends the other day where he offered several “good ideas” about how to reform the American healthcare system that will actually save trillions of dollars instead of costing the American people trillions of dollars.

“Not a single other plan out there,” Pat asked on radio this morning. “There's no GOP person – well, okay, there's quite a few, and Tom Price is one of them. Tom Price who some people would call it, oh, a doctor and a representative.”

Rep. Price lays out his plan in the clip below:

“Now wait a minute. That does sound like [a plan],” Glenn quipped. “It sounds oddly suspiciously like... specific.”

From allowing for competition across state lines to allowing Americans to decide whether they even want insurance, Rep. Price’s plan sounds remarkably feasible. President Obama may actually benefit from meeting with the Congressman – unless, of course, his intentions are not as pure as he would like the American people to think.

“I mean unless the government is really not trying to fix healthcare but instead collapse it,” Glenn mused. “No, that couldn't be. No, that can't be it. [That] would be crazy.”

As Pat explained, the CBO has said Rep. Price’s plan will reduce costs to the federal government by $2.34 trillion over 10 years, which works out to about $230 billion a year. It will cause smaller premium increases, while increasing the number of insured people by 29% in two years. Essentially, it basically accomplishes everything Obamacare allegedly sought to using the free market and resulting in a much cheaper price.

“No, but he's willing to talk to anybody,” Glenn joked of President Obama. “So there must be a catch there that you're not telling me about… It's kind of like that whole thing: If you really love something, let it go. Except this case [it is]: If you really love something, destroy it.”

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.
