'Obamacare Repeal Vote' (AKA 'The Budget') Adds $9.7 Trillion to the Debt

Did you know that Congress voted on the most massive budget in US history? Misleadingly described as the Obamacare Repeal Vote, it's actually a budget resolution proposing the addition of more than $9 trillion to the debt over the next decade. And FYI, there was no mention of Obamacare in its pages, and it didn't repeal Obamacare.

"It doesn't repeal it. And yet it's known as the Obamacare Repeal Vote," Glenn said Tuesday on radio.

More straightforward transparency from the United States Congress.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Hello, America. And welcome to the program. Just reviewing Rand Paul on the State of the Union yesterday. He was talking about the repeal and replace. And Justin Amash went on a tweet storm about, what are we going to do about Obamacare? He is voting against not the repeal. He's voting against the way it's being done. And it's a conversation that we need to have, right now.

(music)

GLENN: Mixed bag of Republicans vote against Obamacare repeal vehicle.

That is the -- that's the story. And most Republicans are saying, "Well, because there wasn't a replacement. There was just a repeal." Well, but there wasn't a repeal. There wasn't a repeal. This was just a -- this was just something that said we can later vote to repeal it, when we're ready. But they tucked it inside of this massive spending package.

It is the -- it's the latest budget, and it is the worst budget, some claim, that we have ever passed. It adds $9 trillion to the debt. $9 trillion.

STU: I believe the number is 9.7 trillion, which your just little summary there just left off $700 billion.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

STU: When you get to these numbers, it is incredible what you can just round away as a rounding error. It's incredible.

GLENN: Okay. So Justin Amash went on a tweet storm. I'm just going to give you the tweets. Confused on what the House voted on today? You're not alone. I hope you'll find this explanation in the following tweets helpful. Two, there's been a lot of crazy or lousy reporting and intentional misrepresentation from the partisans on both sides. Today, we voted on the most massive budget in US history. It's been misleadingly described as the Obamacare repeal vote. It's actually a budget resolution that proposes adding more than $9 trillion to the debt over the next decade. Does that extra debt come from repealing Obamacare? No. The budget doesn't even mention Obamacare, and it doesn't repeal it. Sixth tweet.

STU: Think about that. It doesn't mention Obamacare. And it doesn't repeal it.

GLENN: And it doesn't repeal it. And yet it's known as the Obamacare repeal vote.

Patriot Act.

Budget includes reconciliation instructions to allow Congress to bring later a bill to repeal part of the Obamacare plan with a simple majority. But these instructions can be included in any budget. It's not necessary to pass this particular budget, a/k/a worst budget ever. Partisans of both parties like to describe the vote as a Obamacare repeal vote, rather than the budget vote for obvious reasons. Republicans don't want their votes -- voters to know that they voted for the most massive budget ever. Democrats want their voters to think it's all about stopping Republicans from repealing Obamacare.

Reporters are fixated on the sexy angle, which is the misleading angle that most of the politicians are talking about, Obamacare. So my no vote does not mean I oppose repealing Obamacare. Sorry, Democrats. That's not what today's vote was about. My no vote was about standing up for limited government and fighting for the next generation. It was about stopping a never balanced budget. We can't afford more spending and more debt, regardless of whether it's demanded by a Republican president or -- a Democratic president or a Republican president.

STU: Pretty strong.

GLENN: How do you argue with that?

STU: I know. And it is amazing that that is how it's being reported. It's not talking about the $10 trillion of extra debt. It's talking about how they could theoretically repeal Obamacare in the future. How is that the most important detail of a 10 trillion-dollar budget?

GLENN: Massie said he would vote against the budget resolution because of the estimated 9.7 trillion it would add to the national debt. He said his fiscal conservative colleagues who voted yes because they only saw the budget as a vehicle to get Obamacare repeal will regret it.

We have a Category 5 hurricane coming in when you have to reduce to practice the differences between Donald Trump's agenda and Paul Ryan's. I think there's going to be some very confusing votes in here. And then Amash said what he said.

A lot of people fell for what I call, we have to have dinner tonight in Paris, France, or we're going to starve. No, you can have dinner someplace else.

Did Biden just let slip that record-high gas prices were PLANNED?

President Joe Biden on Monday appeared to praise record-high gas prices, saying it's all part of an “incredible transition” that will make America and the world better off.

“When it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden explained during a joint press conference with Japan Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in Tokyo.

Twitter wasn't buying Biden's most recent bunch of malarkey:





Glenn Beck has long been warning that progressive policies and regulations intended to cripple the fossil fuel industry would lead to skyrocketing oil and gas prices — and it's all by design. Back in 2008, President Barack Obama all but admitted as much when he said energy costs would "necessarily skyrocket” under his cap-and-trade plan.

On a recent episode of BlazeTV's "Glenn Beck Program," Glenn explained why he believes the current oil and gas catastrophe is all "part of the plan," as leftists continue to push their radical ESG agenda.

Elon Musk responded to allegations that he exposed himself to a corporate jet flight attendant by daring his accuser to "describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public."

"I have a challenge to this liar who claims their friend saw me “exposed” – describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public. She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened," Musk posted on twitter.

A Business Insider report on Thursday, alleged that a flight attendant for SpaceX's private jet fleet was paid $250,000 in 2018 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against the company's founder and CEO. A friend of the flight attendant signed a declaration accusing the tech billionaire of exposing himself to the attendant, who is also a licensed massage therapist, during an in-flight massage.

According to the declaration, the flight attendant told her friend that Musk asked her to come to his private cabin "for a full body massage" during a flight in late 2016. When she arrived, Musk "was completely naked except for a sheet covering the lower half of his body." The friend also told Insider that Musk propositioned the flight attendant, then "touched her thigh and told her he would buy her a horse."

One day before the Insider story was published, Musk predicted an escalation in political attacks against him after revealing on a podcast that he plans to vote Republican in the next election cycle.

Musk called the sexual misconduct allegations "wild accusations [that] are utterly untrue" and challenged his accuser to verify her claims by describing a certain something “not known by the public" about his private parts.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray reacted to the incredible "coincidence" of such allegations cropping up just days after the SpaceX CEO announced his intention to vote Republican in the next election cycle — not to mention joining Glenn's longrunning anti-ESG crusade by calling the corporate score system a "scam."

Anyone paying attention can see that President Biden is in dire straights come 2024, regardless of who his opponent may be. His administration has been workshopping several ideas to try and craft just the right message. One that will cut through all the noise (failures) and put him on a more solid footing should he go head-to-head in a rematch with the former President.

Biden called in the big guns and he wasn't afraid to call in a few favors either. He drew on his stint as VP and called Anita Dunn out of the bullpen and tapped the Center for American Progress Action Fund to try and help pull this one out. After an exhaustive six-month-long study into how President Trump was able to summon the magic of MAGA — they finally feel they have the winning message.

Dunn has gotten sloppy, however, since her days in the Obama administration. We obtained her contemporaneous notes and emails showing how they coined the term "ultra-MAGA," trying to get a little "extra pop" to his rhetoric. The leaked emails also show the evolution of the messaging over that same six-month period.


[The preceding Memo was a parody written by MRA writers Josh Jennings and Jon Boldt – not the Biden administration.]

Almost every week, new incriminating evidence is mined from Hunter’s wild laptop. And the proof is mounting that President Joe Biden is lying about his knowledge of his family’s crooked deal-making. Everyone knows Hunter Biden is a seriously degenerate guy. Anyone who has handled his infamous laptop needs a tetanus shot.

The salacious stuff on the laptop is sad and pathetic for sure, but that stuff is NOT what is most relevant to the United States. Glenn Beck exposes how the laptop is REALLY about Joe Biden, his abuse of power as vice president, and his ongoing denials now as president.

Now that the 2020 election has passed and their man is in office, the mainstream media have suddenly decided to admit Hunter’s laptop is not Russian disinformation after all. No one has done more research into the Biden family corruption than journalist and best-selling author Peter Schweizer. He has researched the depths of Hunter’s laptop and found more than racy photos. “These aren’t HUNTER’S business deals,” Peter says, “they benefit the WHOLE family.” And he has the emails to prove it.

But the mainstream media still insist President Biden is as pure as his thinning white hair in all of this. As Glenn reveals tonight, he is not. But will anyone in the Biden family see jail time? Americans are fed up with two sets of rules – one for regular citizens and one for the ruling elites.
