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STU: Because Obama raised it for a few years and then his ridiculous bill repealed.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.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
