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.

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.
