Obamacare Will Enslave Our Children, So Why Won't They Stop It?

Democrats pole vaulted into Obamacare to just get it passed. Why? Because they knew it would never be undone.

"That's what we said when Obamacare was being debated, If you get its tentacles into the system, you're never going to get them out. And that's what we're finding now. It's pretty difficult to get them out," Co-host Pat Gray said on The Glenn Beck Program.

In fact, it looks like the GOP is backing off repealing of the funding for Obamacare.

"If we really understood how this is going to enslave our children, we'd be working a lot harder to stop it," Glenn said Monday on radio.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Well, the G.O.P. has -- is starting to back off their tax cut of repealing of Obamacare funding, if you will, the taxes that went along with it.

PAT: Well, they went to the trillion dollar candy store, and they took out the candy, and now they don't want to give the candy back.

GLENN: Of course not.

PAT: That's every single time.

JEFFY: Every time.

PAT: That's what we said when Obamacare was being debated, "If you get its tentacles into the system, you're never going to get them out." And that's what we're finding now. It's pretty difficult to get them out.

GLENN: That's why they pole vaulted into it. That's why they didn't care by hook or by crook. They knew: Just get it done. Just pass it. Once you pass it, you'll never undo it.

PAT: And then they're going to be really hard-pressed to repeal any of these taxes because what Democrats will say, "Well, you just want to cut taxes for the rich, for the wealthy Americans." Because this happens on the upper percent of -- of -- of health care insurance. Right? It's not everybody pays this tax. It's just the wealthier Americans that are stuck with, what was it? 3 percent, 4 percent tax?

STU: Is it a tax cut if you were paying a rate in 2010 and your rate goes up for a few years, and then it goes back to the 2008 rate. We're calling that a cut? I just want to make sure I understand the terminology here. That's a cut.

PAT: That's amazing.

STU: Because Obama raised it for a few years and then his ridiculous bill repealed. That's a cut for us now? We're going back to the same rates that when he started his administration. It wouldn't be this ridiculous cut. It's getting rid of excess taxes he passed.

GLENN: You just don't care about the debt. You don't care about the deficit or the debt.

STU: Oh, I can find lots of stuff on that for you.

GLENN: That's un-American to have a deficit spending like we have. We have $20 trillion in debt now, and you don't care about it. You're just going to add to the debt.

STU: I love that.

PAT: And when they want to raise the debt ceiling, they'll say, the debt doesn't matter. The debt is not what's important. That doesn't matter.

GLENN: I know.

STU: It's whatever argument works for them in the next 30 seconds is the one they use.

PAT: Yes.

STU: But we need to be better than that.

GLENN: If we really understood how this is going to enslave our children, we'd be working a lot harder to stop it.

STU: I don't know. We've worked pretty hard. We've tired. I think this audience has tried.

GLENN: No, no. I don't mean us, as a whole. As American people. As the whole, when we see that no one is going to forgive our debt, no one is going to forgive this debt.

You know, Brazil and China, they're not going to say, "Oh, you know what, America really tried, and they were good to the rest of the world. And I know they forgave a lot of debt. So we'll forgive debt." They're not going to do that for us. That's not going to happen.

We will still have to pay this debt back. And we'll pay it in our resources or our labor. We are literally enslaving our children.

STU: And the way the Republicans have tried to do this is by passing two budget bills in the same year, which is very abnormal. But the way they tried to do it was to get both the taxes and the Obamacare repeal done quickly.

What it looks like now is that that scheduling might wind up killing both of them because -- and they're going to say, "Well, it's procedural. You don't understand. Oh, no. We couldn't get either one done."

And that is the way it's trending right now. They still have time to reverse it, but it gets more and more difficult by the day.

PAT: Uh-huh. And here's what John Cornyn -- john Cornyn of Texas said, "Whatever we do in replacement is going to cost some money. And is there a way to generate money if we ditch all the Obamacare tax revenues?" That's where we haven't achieved consensus.

(laughter)

STU: Oh, man.

PAT: You slimy dirtbags.

STU: Wow. We deserve this. We do.

PAT: It doesn't cost you money. You're just taking less from us.

STU: Right.

PAT: That's not costing you money. You're cost us money right now! Stop it!

STU: And if you go back to the beginning of Obamacare --

PAT: Unbelievable, man.

STU: -- let's say they didn't go to Obamacare. Overton window example here, if we could go back to that. The amount of Obamacare that the Republicans are pledging to essentially keep, which is a decent percentage of Obamacare, even in these repeal plans, a lot of it stays, if Democrats just attempted to pass a bill with the stuff Republicans are now saying will stay from Obamacare, they would have never been able to get it through, not with Republican support at least.

So instead, they pass this giant thing. It backs off to only half of it. And we're like, wow, what a win. We repealed it.

We repealed, what? They got half of their agenda through. And now it's Republicans' fault when it blows up. This is not a win. They need to actually go in there and replace it with something good and repeal everything.

PAT: They need to replace it with the free market.

STU: With the free freaking market.

PAT: Free market.

STU: Why not? Why not? Wouldn't that be a wonderful thing to try.

GLENN: Our bar is so high. Why not?

STU: Why not? Give it a whirl.

GLENN: Why not? We'll try the free market.

PAT: We'll try the free market. Let's try the American way.

GLENN: Let's just give it a shot. Why not?

PAT: What a concept.

GLENN: Why not?

STU: Ah.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
