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?

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
