Can anyone beat Rand Paul’s tax proposal?

Rand Paul released a new ad talking about his radical new tax plans, and Glenn couldn’t be more excited. It’s the best thing any candidate has said on the IRS to date. Will anyone be able to top it?

"He has just announced a radical tax plan. I'm telling you, this is erotic, it is so good," Glenn said.

Watch it below:

Rand Paul's Fair And Flat Tax

WATCH: My plan is the biggest and boldest tax cut in American history. This will shake up Washington and Wall Street, no doubt. But I'm not running for their approval, I'm running to take our country back.

But I also want to spend a couple of minutes with Rand Paul. He has just announced a radical tax plan. I'm telling you, this is erotic, it is so good.

PAT: I'm in love with it. Even though I'm not a huge --

GLENN: Pat is not a huge Rand Paul fan. I looked at him -- he rolled his eyes when I said he has a tax plan you will like. He rolled his eyes. Then I said, you're thinking about it, aren't you? And he's like, oh, I am. Listen to this.

RAND: I'm running for president to defeat the Washington machine. And to do that, we have to drive a stake through the heart of the IRS and our terrible tax code. We need to tear it up and start over, with a plan that's simple, fair, and cuts taxes for every single American. Let's start with the workers tax cut. For most Americans, the biggest tax they pay is the FICA tax on their paycheck. And all anyone ever tries to do is raise that tax or pretend you're not paying it.

In my tax plan, the first thing we'll do is eliminate the workers tax. That's right. It's gone. Zero. Nothing. That means that every single working American would keep thousands of dollars more in their paycheck --

GLENN: FICA gone.

PAT: Yes! Seriously.

RAND: We're not stopping there. We will end corporate welfare and eliminate the army of lobbyists and tax lawyers gaming the system.

GLENN: I like that.

RAND: All special tax breaks will be gone, in exchange for one low flat rate of 14.5 percent that every single business will pay. No more billion-dollar corporations paying zero --

GLENN: But wait. There's more.

RAND: But also, no more mom-and-pop businesses paying 40 percent. Everyone pays the same, and it will grow our economy. In fact, the Tax Foundation studies show my plan will create nearly 2 million jobs. Finally, every American taxpayer, everyone will be able to file a very simple return on one page at a low and fair rate of 14.5 percent -- for every single American. And the guy with the most lawyers and accountants doesn't win; you do. My plan will cut taxes for everyone. It will end corporate welfare and special tax breaks. It will create jobs, and it will get the IRS out of your life.

GLENN: Amen. That is unbelievable. That's the best thing I've ever heard from any candidate on the IRS yet. Phenomenal. Rand Paul.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
