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.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

Megyn Kelly UNCENSORED: It's Not Time to Unify, It's Time to FIGHT | Ep 88

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." Now, Megyn and Glenn break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, Leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner … and is Fox News finished? Megyn and Glenn reminisce on their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with Donald Trump) and also give a look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. And the best takeaway from her time at NBC? "Jane Fonda was an ass."

How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control. And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.

Glenn SNAPS over Dem corruption: ‘It’s NOT OVER!’

Glenn has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just for everyone to look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China...the list goes on, but no consequences are ever paid. So while the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, and insists no one can question it, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair. But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands.
