Rep. Dave Brat: Deficit Is So Huge, 'It's Over' in 11 Years

Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) joined The Glenn Beck Program on Monday to discuss the state of Washington, D.C. Rep Brat, an economist who successfully ran against Eric Cantor back in 2014, is up for reelection.

Glenn asked Rep. Brat, who sits on the House Budget Committee, about the failures of both Democrats and Republicans in fixing the budget and reducing the deficit.

"The problem is, again, the process," Glenn said. "We are just doing these continuing resolutions, which takes the power of Congress' time every time. We know that it was the Democrats that started this unconstitutional process, but the Republicans have been just as bad. Are we going to see an end to this?"

Rep. Brat agreed the process is a problem and outlined specifically just how bad things are.

"If the people don't know, under Republican leadership, the deficit this year is going up for the first time since '09 to $105 billion. It's going up to $540 billion. That's a half a trillion dollars," Rep. Brat said. "And the biggest problem is the unfunded liability piece --- the Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid, etc. In 11 years, all federal revenues will go to those mandatory programs. There won't be one dollar for the military or running government, transportation, education . . . nothing. And you can go to CBO. The main graph is sitting right there. In 11 years, it's over."

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.
