Obamacare, still the solution for healthcare?

The President and those who jammed Obamacare down America’s collective throat promised the massive trillion dollar program would ultimately save money for the average American. New figures now show that Obamacare’s cost is running about $50,000 per person.

Watch Glenn's reaction below:

Rough transcript of the segment is below:

Glenn: Let me give you this story. Completely off the weather. It will cost the federal government, you the taxpayer, the taxpayers, $50,000 for every person who gets health insurance under Obamacare?

PAT: Oh, it's worth it because now they have health care.

GLENN: This is according to the CBO who said, that's not going to happen. Remember, it's the government and all these scientists and all these accountants that tell us exactly what climate change is going to cost us. They told us this would be a good deal for everybody. It's $50,000 for every person that is insured under Obamacare, according to the CBO. 50,000 per person. What will people say? Well, that's an outrage. But at least people are getting coverage. How many people will have coverage that didn't have coverage. At what cost?

STU: They do this same thing on cable television. You have to admit there are more people with insurance. So! We could have a policy that costs $20 trillion to insure one person, and you could make the same argument.

GLENN: This is like the -- the hourly wage thing. If you really believe this nonsense, you'll do two things -- if you really believe that the hourly wage has to be increased, you, A, know nothing about business because you know that business will cut the least skilled labor. They will always do that. And everybody else will end up doing 14 jobs. That's just the way it is. Because you can't afford -- that's what that is for, it's entry-level.

STU: The minimum wage was designed by progressives to eliminate the classes they didn't like who they didn't think would be worth the minimum wages. That's where it came from.

GLENN: Wow. I didn't know that story. Tell me that story.

STU: They -- well, and I can pull the quotes for you --

GLENN: Wait. Pull the quotes and then tell that story.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: So here you have minimum wage. If you really want minimum wage, here's the argument you make. We're going to tie it to the rate of inflation. So we only have to have this argument once. We tie it to the rate of inflation. If we believe that. But see, they won't do that because then it takes away one of their talking points. It takes away, well, you need to vote me in because I'll help you with the minimum wage. If you believe that's true, you tie it to the rate of inflation, period. Then we have that debate once, and it's over. The second thing is, if you really believed that this was a good thing, that this would solve all the problems, why not make the minimum wage 100,000 dollars a year? Why not make the minimum wage $100 an hour. If it really works and really lifts people out of poverty, why not -- why not just keep raising it. They're talking about 15, $20 an hour. Make it 100. Then everybody would be able to raise their families. Minimum wage was never intended to be a wage that you could raise a family on. That was the entry-level position. That was mainly for people who were in their teens or in their 20s.

STU: And nobody does what the president talks about. It's less than .2 percent of the population -- of the work force. Not the population. It's actually less of the population. But it's less than .2 percent of the work force that does this, I support my family on a minimum wage.

PAT: Yeah, it's almost no one.

STU: That's not what it's for.

GLENN: So why not -- if we don't care about these things. If we don't actually care about numbers and things that actually work, why don't we just raise the minimum wage to $50 an hour. Raise it to $50 an hour. If we don't care about numbers and things, at least we're doing something. How many families will we save. That .2 percent. Yes, it will cost a lot of companies to go under. And it will cost a lot of jobs and everything else. But that .2 percent with families, making $50 an hour, they'll be able to raise their families. It's $50,000, think of this -- $50,000 a year, to be able to get somebody under Obamacare. $50,000 per person to insure them under Obamacare. Well, why not? Look at how many people we can save. Look at how many people are actually on that. Let's just do it and while we're at let's make minimum wage $50 an hour. Why don't we are just do it?

PAT: Why not? Under this system, why not?

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
