Mike Lee: This Is NOT the Bill We've Been Waiting For

Should we just accept the Obamacare replacement put forth by Republicans and live with it? Not if Utah Sen. Mike Lee (R) has anything to say about it. Recently asked by a reporter if he was "for the repeal, but not yet replace" he had this to say:

I'm for repeal. Look, we've been waiting for seven years for the opportunity to repeal Obamacare. We waited for the election in 2010, where we got the majority in the House. In 2014, where we got the majority in the Senate. In 2016, where we've now got a Republican in the White House as a result of that election. This is not the repeal bill that we've been waiting for, for all these years. This is a huge opportunity that's been missed. And it's a step in the wrong direction.

What we need to do is repeal the bill and then bring about an iterative, step-by-step process, one in which we can put the American consumer, patients and doctors, back in charge of their own health care decisions, rather than having them made by government bureaucrats in Washington.

"So how do you feel about this, Stu? Because you brought up today that maybe we should consider going for what we have because this is better than Obamacare," Glenn asked Thursday on radio.

Has co-host Stu Burguiere given up the fight?

"If Obamacare is an F, this is a D-plus. So that does not mean it's good. However, there's negotiation here. I do support the idea to try to improve it," Stu said. "You want Obamacare gone. I want those taxes gone. I want a lot of that regulation gone. If you can get most of that gone, maybe you do it."

GLENN: Welcome to the program. So glad that you are tuning in today.

A lot of things going on. Let's play Mike Lee on universal health care.

VOICE: Okay. So just to be clear, are you for repeal, but not yet replace? Where are you on that?

VOICE: I'm for repeal. Look, we've been waiting for seven years for the opportunity to repeal Obamacare. We waited for the election in 2010, where we got the majority in the House. In 2014, where we got the majority in the Senate. In 2016, where we've now got a Republican in the White House as a result of that election. This is not the repeal bill that we've been waiting for, for all these years. This is a huge opportunity that's been missed. And it's a step in the wrong direction.

What we need to do is repeal the bill and then bring about an iterative, step-by-step process, one in which we can put the American consumer, patients and doctors, back in charge of their own health care decisions, rather than having them made by government bureaucrats in Washington.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So how do you feel about this, Stu? Because you brought up today that maybe we should consider going for what we have because this is better than Obamacare.

STU: Yeah, and I do think, even as it is right now, it's better than Obamacare. If Obamacare is an F, this is a D-plus. So that does not mean it's good. However, there's negotiation here. I do support the idea to try to improve it. You know, without necessarily coming out and saying, hey, there's no way I'll vote for anything even in the realm of this possibility. I'd rather see how good they can get it and then make that decision. You got to push hard right now because they're negotiating the bill. You know, I would hate to have -- I would hate to have this go by, and Obamacare lives. But, I mean, this is obviously not the right bill. So you need dramatic improvement to it. But if you can get dramatic improvement, you know, maybe you do pull the trigger on it, even if it's not perfect. You want Obamacare gone. I want those taxes gone. I want a lot of that regulation gone. If you can get most of that gone, maybe you do it. I don't know.

WATCH this pastor chase 'communist' cops out of his church: 'Gestapo is not allowed here!'

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

Who Is the Real Jesus? | Dallas Jenkins | Ep 103

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller. And he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible. Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God. Glenn and Dallas break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is and paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Comply or Die: How America Will Enforce TOTAL Wokeness

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

SO MUCH FOR BUYING ELECTRIC: Mayor Pete wants to tax EVERY mile you drive

It's almost as if they WANT you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible. First, Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, (Mayor) Pete Buttigieg is heading up the Department of Transportation and floated the idea of taxing EVERY mile you drive. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump...
