Bernie Sanders Rambles on About How Uncompassionate Americans Are

Bernie Sanders recently complained about America's uncompassionate policy of not guaranteeing health care to all people as a right. Glenn shared his reaction on his radio program Monday.

"Our rights come from our creator. Now, how do we get a right of health care from our creator? Huh. We don't," Glenn said. "I'm trying to think of any way you can interpret anything in nature to tell you that you have a right to health care."

Listen to the clip above or read the transcript below.

GLENN: All right. Now, this might not sound like we're compassionate to those who want jade eggs and to eat crickets. (But that's only if you listen to Bernie Sanders.) Here's Bernie Sanders talking about how "not compassionate" Americans are.

BERNIE: The United States of America is the only major country on earth that does not guarantee health care to all people as a right.

PAT: Dang proud of that.

BERNIE: Canada does it. Every major country in Europe does it.

STU: And, no, they don't.

PAT: First of all, Canada is not a major country. Can we get that straight?

STU: Oh, wow. Wait.

GLENN: Alternate fact. Stu is --

STU: I'm very upset about that.

JEFFY: Now you're hurting Stu's feelings.

STU: You have to remember -- notice the words he uses: Guarantees health care. No, they don't. They absolutely don't guarantee health care. They guarantee you to believe they have insurance. Whether you can get care or not is a completely different issue.

PAT: Yeah. Yeah.

GLENN: If health care around the world -- like the ancient Chinese secret, if it was so good, capitalism would embrace it.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: The market would run towards it. If it was so great, we would all run towards it. It's not good.

Here's what it's good for: It's good for the very lowest of poverty levels because they get something. Well, we already -- they already got something. They already can go to the hospital. Now, that's breaking the hospital system.

But let's fix that problem. Okay?

So it's good for the very bottom --

STU: We also have Medicaid, by the way, which is a giant government system specifically designed to help those people to get insurance.

GLENN: Right. So there you go.

You already have the bottom ladder. The top of the ladder, they don't care. They'll get health care -- they'll just pay for it. They'll just go out -- I need to go see a doctor. Okay. I'll write a check.

So the top of the health care, they don't care. Who does it hurt? Everyone in between. That's what socialized medicine does. Hurts everyone in between. It's bad.

All right. Anyway...

BERNIE: Believe that health care is a right of all Americans whether they're rich or they're poor.

GLENN: Stop. This is why it is important to understand that we are based on the Declaration of Independence.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Our rights come from our creator.

Now, how do we get a right of health care from our creator?

Huh. We don't. Huh. There's no way -- I'm trying to think of any way you can interpret anything in nature to tell you that you have a right to health care.

PAT: May I also ask how it's compassionate for any country forced to provide health care for anyone else, how is that compassion? It's not.


PAT: I've been forced. I didn't volunteer that money. That's not a compassionate act.

GLENN: And it makes you less compassionate.

PAT: It's ridiculous.

GLENN: Our nurses -- our nurses and doctors here in America I believe are the most compassionate, some of them in the world.

PAT: Oh, they're great.

JEFFY: Absolutely.

PAT: They're really great.

GLENN: They're great. And why? Because they have a desire to do it.

PAT: And the things they do are incredible.

GLENN: Remarkable. Remarkable.

PAT: And at least in our recent experience, they all did it with such professionalism and compassion.

GLENN: Now, you could go over to the Netherlands and say, "Well, the Netherlands, they had better health care." Well, in some ways they might. In some ways, they might. But can we just look at the Netherlands here for a second. If you look at Sweden, up until recently, it was the most homogenized group of people of all time.

Let's see. They're all white. Blond hair, blue-eyed with the same background in culture. It's not hard to move one group of people, who are all exactly alike, and fit them into this little package. Now that they have to serve two cultures, it's completely falling apart.

America is the entire world coming together. It doesn't work. It's harder to do things in America. There is no one who is as diverse as this country is, in thought and in lifestyle. And that's good.

Why should I celebrate diversity in everything, except when it really counts?

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Celebrate answers in math with Common Core. No. No.

PAT: There's more.

BERNIE: Should people, because they're Americans, be able to go to the doctor when they need to, be able to go into a hospital because they're Americans?

VOICE: We're a compassionate society.

BERNIE: No, we're not a compassionate society. In terms of our relationship to poor and working people, our record is worse than virtually any other country on earth.

PAT: That is unbelievable. That's unbelievable.

STU: Should they be able to go to the doctors when they want to? That's the exact thing socialized medicine can't accomplish. There's long-term waiting.

GLENN: You die. If you want socialized medicine, we have it. Are we compassionate to our veterans?

PAT: No.

GLENN: That's socialized medicine. There it is. That's what -- when they finally kill the free market and we only have a single-payer health care system, that's what it is. That is the least compassionate.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

Would you feel safe if your child attended a University that allowed pro-Hamas protests?

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
