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?

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Critical race theory: A special brand of evil

wal_172619/Pixabay

Part of what makes it hard for us to challenge the left is that their beliefs are complicated. We don't mean complicated in a positive way. They aren't complicated the way love is complicated. They're complicated because there's no good explanation for them, no basis in reality.

The left cannot pull their heads out of the clouds. They are stuck on romantic ideas, abstract ideas, universal ideas. They talk in theories. They see the world through ideologies. They cannot divorce themselves from their own academic fixations. And — contrary to what they believe and how they act — it's not because leftists are smarter than the rest of us. And studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country. Marx was no different. The Communist Manifesto talks about how the rise of cities "rescued a considerable part of the population from the idiocy of rural life."

Studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country.

Instead of admitting that they're pathological hypocrites, they tell us that we're dumb and tell us to educate ourselves. Okay, so we educate ourselves; we return with a coherent argument. Then they say, "Well, you can't actually understand what you just said unless you understand the work of this other obscure Marxist writer. So educate yourselves more."

It's basically the "No True Scotsman" fallacy, the idea that when you point out a flaw in someone's argument, they say, "Well, that's a bad example."

After a while, it becomes obvious that there is no final destination for their bread-crumb trail. Everything they say is based on something that somebody else said, which is based on something somebody else said.

Take critical race theory. We're sure you've noticed by now that it is not evidence-based — at all. It is not, as academics say, a quantitative method. It doesn't use objective facts and data to arrive at conclusions. Probably because most of those conclusions don't have any basis in reality.

Critical race theory is based on feelings. These feelings are based on theories that are also based on feelings.

We wanted to trace the history of critical race theory back to the point where its special brand of evil began. What allowed it to become the toxic, racist monster that it is today?

Later, we'll tell you about some of the snobs who created critical theory, which laid the groundwork for CRT. But if you follow the bread-crumb trail from their ideas, you wind up with Marxism.

For years, the staff has devoted a lot of time to researching Marxism. We have read a lot of Marx and Marxist writing. It's part of our promise to you to be as informed as possible, so that you know where to go for answers; so that you know what to say when your back is up against the wall. What happens when we take the bread-crumb trail back farther, past Marxism? What is it based on?

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism.

It's actually based on the work of one of the most important philosophers in human history, a 19th-century German philosopher named Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism. And, as you'll see in just a bit, if we look at Hegel's actual ideas, it's obvious that Marx completely misrepresented them in order to confirm his own fantasies.

So, in a way, that's where the bread-crumb trail ends: With Marx's misrepresentation of an incredibly important, incredibly useful philosophy, a philosophy that's actually pretty conservative.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.
