Krauthammer on Repealing Obamacare: Republicans, You Promised

Columnist, author and Fox News commentator Charles Krauthammer --- or K Ham, as Glenn likes to call him --- revealed in a recent interview what would be the biggest betrayal of the conservative voter: not repealing Obamacare.

Not getting it done is a catastrophe because you ran against it for seven years.

And you promised you would do it. And that would be the ultimate betrayal of the electorate. One of the reasons of the rise of Donald Trump is because so many conservatives, so many Republicans had said they were being betrayed by their leaders. This would be the ultimate one.

At 2,000 pages, Obamacare represents thousands of reforms with complex and contradictory interactions. While replacing it is essential, the onus would then be on Republicans for the success of what comes next.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Listen to K Ham.

STU: We're just calling him K Ham on the air now. Charles Krauthammer.

GLENN: Charles Krauthammer. I like to call him K Ham.

STU: I do like the name K Ham. It's pretty solid.

GLENN: Yes. So Charles Krauthammer is saying the biggest betrayal of the conservative voter could happen. Listen.

CHARLES: Not getting it done is a catastrophe because you ran against it for seven years.

GLENN: Obamacare.

CHARLES: And you promised you would do it. And that would be the ultimate betrayal of the electorate. One of the reasons of the rise of Donald Trump is because so many conservatives, so many Republicans had said they were being betrayed by their leaders. This would be the ultimate one. So it has to get done. The problem is that if you get it done, you own the entire system of American medicine.

Obamacare is 2,000 pages. It's not one reform. It's 1,000 reforms whose interactions are complex, contradictory, and unpredictable, and that's what we're stuck with now. And it's collapsing. But if you replace, you're going to have to redo all of American medicine all over again. And then you become responsible.

And politically, the danger is that you own the system. So if something goes wrong in anybody's life, denied coverage, lousy coverage, no available doctor, et cetera, premiums increasing, whatever it is, whether or not it's the cause of the replacement bill, you will be responsible for it and blamed.

STU: I mean, he's totally right there. But you have to take that chance, right? Yes, they're always going to be able to dig up somebody that didn't get coverage and everything is terrible.

PAT: You do. He's right.

GLENN: Or -- or you just make it a single-payer and you lock it in. Because who is held responsible for what happens to the vets? Nobody.

STU: Nobody.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.

Bank of America SIDESTEPS the Constitution for Paris Climate Agreement

Bank of America sent out a news release announcing its plans to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions through its financing — meaning it's now putting policies into place that'll make it hard for people to do business if they don't support the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.

"It is critical that we leverage all parts of our business – beyond our direct operations – in order to accelerate the transition to a net zero global economy," said Bank of America Vice Chairman, Anne Finucane.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explains how its new policies are an end-run around the U.S. Constitution and another example of the coming "Great Reset." He also exposes Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan's close connections to the World Economic Forum and the push for stakeholder capitalism.

And this is just the beginning.
