Wait, Republicans have a plan for fixing Obamacare?

Today on radio, Pat and Stu discussed the Obamacare lawsuit that could possibly end Obamacare. Stu explained the lawsuit on radio, saying, "So in the law they wrote you can only get subsidises--in other words, you can only get free cash from the government to pay for your healthcare if your state set up the Obamacare website. If you go through the federal website, then you're not gonna get any free money from the government. That's the way they did it because they wanted the states to do all the work, we didn't want to have to deal with it, they wanted the states to do all the work."

Despite the law in place, 34 states did not follow the law, and instead went through the federal exchanges. Now, faced with the possibility of not getting free money, that would removed all the people from those 34 states off of Obamacare. But, wait, there's a Republican senator coming to the rescue of Obamacare?!

Apparently, that is the case! Three Republican senators, Orrin Hatch, Lamar Alexander, and John Barrasso wrote in a Washington Post op-ed on Sunday that there is plan to allow the subsidies to continue for a transitional amount of time until states can come up with their own healthcare reform plan. So essentially, as Stu said, "a Republican is riding to the rescue of Obamacare and saying we'll give you as much money as we can over a transitional period, and then the ending is important. While states come up with their own health refrom plans. So now you get Obamacare light, Obamacare 2.0, Obamacare local."

Rough Transcript Below:

Pat: Now, something else that's going on today, there's--there's an Obamacare lawsuit that is happening that's pretty important, and it could, I mean, conceivably kind of spell the end to Obamacare, right?

Stu: Yeah, kinda. It's King vs. Burwell, we've gone over this before. If you don't remember, it's the one about the subsidises. So in the law they wrote you can only get subsidises--in other words, you can only get free cash from the government to pay for your healthcare if your state set up the Obamacare website. If you go through the federal website, then you're not gonna get any free money from the government. That's the way they did it because they wanted the states to do all the work, we didn't want to have to deal with it, they wanted the states to do all the work.

Pat: This is one of the things what's his name.

Stu: I'm already forgetting his name.

Pat: Me too.

Stu: The professor who has now been ostracized from the entire universe.

Pat: One of the architects. How quickly we've forgotten his name.

Stu: I know. Catassembly. Jeffy, you figure that out, too. This is sad. when we go to Jeffy to figure stuff out. Oh, Gruber.

Pat: Yes, Gruber.

Stu: So this is one of the things Gruber said as well. And so the lawsuit says look, you can't just give the free money to the people who enter the federal exchanges, which is 34 out of the 50 states did it that way. You can't do it because the law actually specifically says it only goes to the states. And so that's what the lawsuit is. If the lawsuit were to go through and go the way it should go, which is laws are written for a reason in a specific way, and you have to follow them, you don't get to just make it up afterwards, if that goes the correct way, then 34 states would suddenly find themselves without free money from the government for healthcare. And it would be a destructive factor, as most people in the United States would all then be off of this.

Pat: It could fall apart, conceivably.

Stu: It could fall apart. That is, you know--and that's why obviously conservatives are rooting for this because you say down the line, this would destroy a really bad program for America. However, there's always a Republican to step in to take that threat away. We saw this with--with the immigration issue, with the funding, where Mitch McConnell came in said, well, split it up and be fine, again taking all the pressure off of the Democrats even though they were the ones blocking the funding. Now we have a new one. First of all, the HHS secretary saying she has no fix for this, so she can'd do anything to help anyone, she's trying to scare people essentially into believing that if this lawsuit goes through it's really bad for the country, but three Republican Senators, Orrin Hatch, Lamar Alexander, and John Barrasso wrote in a Washington Post op-ed Sunday said there is a growing consensus to allow subsidies to continue on a transitional basis while Congress works to roll back Obamacare and let states come up with their own healthcare reform plan.

Pat: I'm sorry. Did you mention Utah's elder states man Orrin Hatch?

Stu: I did. That's the guy, by the way, guy who's heading this up, giving quotes about it all the time. So when the Obamacare thing proves to be in the funding proves to be against the law, essentially, he wants to step in to provide--

Pat: He's riding to the rescue.

Stu: --a Republican is riding to the rescue of Obamacare and saying we'll give you as much money as we can over a transitional period, and then the ending is important. While states come up with their own health refrom plans. So now you get Obamacare light, Obamacare 2.0, Obamacare local.

Pat: Rather than getting rid of the bill.

Stu: Right. Which is what you would theoretically want if you're a Republican senator, especially one as conservative as Orrin Hatch.

Pat: oh yes. Oh, yes.

Stu: Keep in mind this is the same guy who wrote back in 2010, here's what Orrin Hatch wrote about exactly what we're talking about then: A third constitutional defectint in this Obamacare legislation is its command that state establish such things as benefit exchanges which will require state legislation and regulations. This is not a condition for receiving federal funds which would still leave some kind of choice to the states. No, this legislations requires states to establish these exchages or says that the secretary of Health and Human Services will step in and do it for them. It renders states little more than subdivisions of the federal government. He was clearly dead set against it back in 2010. Now he's all for it, and he's trying to ride to the rescure and fix it, and now he's saying because, you know, reporters because he's Republican brough up to him, by the way, you were saying something completely different back in 2010. Yeah, well that's not what I meant.

Pat: That's not what he meant.

Stu: Again, the same these talking about the Obama administration, what ever needs to be said on a given day to get through that day yes, that's all that matters in Washington with way too many Republicans and essentially every Democrat.

Pat: I was talking about a different kind of fora, back in 2010, not this fora. We've done at lease 75 foras on this, Stu.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

Watch the video be low to get Glenn's take on the final debate before the November 3 election:

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."
