Rand Paul: 'Obamacare Light' Is Democrat Ideas Dressed up in Republican Clothing

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is keeping the pressure on when it comes to replacing Obamacare. He recently went on record about the replacement Republicans are putting forward:

I think what they're putting forward is Obamacare light. It has a new entitlement program in there, which we're having trouble affording what we have now without creating a new entitlement program. It has a Cadillac tax similar to the Obamacare bill. I thought we were for repealing the Obamacare taxes, not keeping them. And it also has the individual mandate. Instead of paying a penalty to give the government if you don't get insurance, you'll pay a penalty to the insurance company when you go to buy insurance. But it's an individual mandate, just simply different. And what I object to in the house leadership bill is I think these are Democrat ideas dressed up in Republican clothing.

Republican leadership also seem to be pulling a "Nancy Pelosi" when it comes to making the bill public.

"Listen to what he said when he went to try to find the bill. It's amazing," Glenn said on radio Friday. From Rand Paul:

It was under lock and key with cards and sure enough when we got there, we were not allowed to see the Obamacare repeal bill. We know it exists. It's probably hundreds of pages long, and we didn't get to see it, and we're upset about that. In my state in Kentucky, it's against the law to have closed meetings where the public is not allowed to see the process.

Thanks for the transparency, Republicans.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: We have Rand Paul talking about the missing ObamaCare repeal listen to Rand Paul.

RAND: I think what they're putting forward is ObamaCare light. It has a new entitlement program in there, which we're having trouble affording what we have now without creating a new entitlement program. It has a Cadillac tax similar to the ObamaCare bill. I thought we were for repealing the ObamaCare taxes, not keeping them. And it also has the individual mandate. Instead of paying a penalty to give the, if you don't get insurance, you'll pay a penalty to the insurance company when you go to buy insurance. But it's an individual mandate just simply different. And what I object to in the house leadership bill is I think these are Democrat ideas dressed up in Republican clothing.

GLENN: Okay. So listen to what he said when he went to try to find the bill. It's amazing.

RAND: We were looking for the ObamaCare repeal bill.

GLENN: No. No. That's the same cut.

PAT: That's the same one?

GLENN: That's the same cut.

PAT: All right. Then.

GLENN: You were right. I'm sorry. Yeah. Sorry.

RAND: We were looking for the Obamacare repeal bill. We had been talking about it for six years. We thought you ought to see it. So we heard it was in a secret room.

GLENN: Listen to this.

RAND: It was under lock and key with cards and sure enough when we got there, we were not allowed to see the Obamacare repeal bill. We know it exists. It's probably hundreds of pages long, and we didn't get to see it, and we're upset about that. In my state in Kentucky, it's against the law to have closed meetings where the public is not allowed to see the process --

GLENN: Isn't that incredible?

PAT: Well, you're not in Kentucky anymore.

GLENN: By the way, thanks to Michael Opelka, you can hear Michael Opelka on weekends.

JEFFY: You can hear Michael on evenings.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. That's right.

STU: With Jeffy's show.

GLENN: Pure Opelka on nights now. I forgot we expanded. That's right.

PAT: Meanwhile, welcome back, Rand Paul. Where has he been?

If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
