The GOP Obamacare Replacement Is Total Garbage

Republicans complained and moaned about Obamacare when they didn't have control of the White House. They actually put together a bill repealing it, which passed the House and the Senate only to be vetoed by President Obama. So why are they pushing a watered-down version now rather than a full repeal?

"Look at what that reveals about Republicans. When they knew that there was no chance of getting it through they passed a clean Obamacare repeal," Co-host Stu Burguiere said Wednesday on radio. "Now, the second they have a chance . . . all they have to do is pass this and they have control of everything . . . and what happens?"

What happened was Republicans releasing a replacement that embraces and entrenches many of the largest and most problematic portions of Obamacare, confirming that the majority of our elected officials don't care what their constituents want.

"It just shows how worthless they are. This is why we're not high on the Republican Party," Co-host Pat Gray said. "This is exactly the reason we're not."

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

Pat: This Obamacare repeal is -- so far has been pretty disappointing. First of all, they haven't repealed it. They're not really -- they're not really traveling that route. It looks to me like they're just patching Obamacare.

STU: Uh-huh.

PAT: Isn't that just what they're doing? They're putting some Band-Aids on this thing.

STU: Yeah, I mean, they're acting as if their tax credit system is different than the subsidy system that exists. Really, it's not.

You know, the old way that you would go to the Obamacare exchange and you would get a subsidy. And 1,000-dollar policy looks like it costs you $150. It's basically what would happen again. You would be dumping a bunch of tax credits. And it's not just tax credits. It's refunds in excess of what you pay in taxes. So if you pay $3,000 of taxes a year and the tax credit is for $10,000, they're going to give you a check for $7,000 to buy health insurance. I mean, that's just a government -- how is that different than a big government liberal program?

PAT: Well, it's a handout.

STU: Yeah, it's just acting -- when you call it tax credits, then conservatives are supposed to be like, oh, that's totally different. I'm so much happier about that.

I'm not.

PAT: And all during Obamacare, everybody screamed about the fact, we're going to repeal this thing. And we're going to put together a bill, and we're going to pass it.

And they did. They passed the bill in the House. They passed the bill in the Senate. And, of course, Obama didn't sign it. He vetoed them.

STU: He vetoed them. But look at what that reveals about Republicans. When they knew that there was no chance of getting it through --

PAT: Yeah.

STU: -- they passed a clean Obamacare repeal. When they know the guy with the -- who has the name before care in Obamacare was present, they had no problem passing this because they knew it wouldn't do anything.

Now the second they have a chance to -- all they have to do is pass this and they have control of everything, and what happens? This.

PAT: Nothing. I mean, something crappy.

STU: Yeah. They go to -- they have a replacement that is -- that embraces and entrenches large portions of Obamacare. Many of the biggest portions that were problematic.

PAT: It just shows how worthless they are. This is why we're not high on the Republican Party.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: This is exactly the reason we're not.

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
