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STU: Because Obama raised it for a few years and then his ridiculous bill repealed.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

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."
