Does President Trump Really Want to Fulfill His Promises on Health Care?

President Donald Trump needs to fulfill his promises to voters about health care and “excoriate both sides” for failing the American people, Glenn said on radio on Friday.

The government and the health care industry are together responsible for spiking health care costs thanks to crony capitalism, and Republican lawmakers aren’t taking this collusion seriously.

“That’s not the game they’re playing in Washington,” Glenn said.

Republicans in the Senate failed to pass the “skinny repeal” of the Affordable Care Act Thursday night, Sens. John McCain (Ariz.), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Susan Collins (Maine) voting against the measure.

Called a “skinny repeal” because it would have only partially repealed Obamacare, the bill included provisions to repeal the individual mandate; eliminate penalties on employers without insurance plans; and give states the option to apply for waivers that would give them more flexibility.

“While the amendment would have repealed some of Obamacare’s most burdensome regulations, it offered no replacement to actually reform our health care system and deliver affordable, quality health care to our citizens,” McCain said in a statement on his vote.

GLENN: While all of this was going on, we had Ben Sasse. Ben Sasse was on the floor yesterday. Ben Sasse was on the floor, and this is what Ben Sasse said.

BEN: I've come to the floor to keep my promise and offer a word of humble advice to the president. If you're thinking of making a recess appointment to push out the attorney general, forget about it. The presidency isn't a bull, and this country isn't a China shop.

GLENN: He gave some more advice, and I really want to do the same.

Mr. President, the people are hurting. They're really, really hurting. They trusted to you be able to bring their cost of health care down. The reason why health care is so expensive is because of government and big business collusion. It is not because we need more government. It is because the government is colluding with business. We need less government, and we need to punish those businesses that were colluding, were intentionally jacking up prices because they could because you were giving them benefits. That's what the American people want.

The American people want their health care cost to come down, and the American people also really want to take care of people who don't have health care. Who can't for some reason or another. Not the people who are just, like, you know what? I'm just going to write poetry on the beach, and that's what I'm going to do.

Well, good. And if a whale comes and beaches on top of you and breaks all of your bones, you made the choice to be a deadbeat on the beach. You had the opportunity. You wouldn't work for it.

If you're not trying at all. If you have no skin in the game at all, I can't help you. And I don't think Americans want to help you. We might feel bad for you. We will carry you off on the beach, and we might even help you reset your bones. But we're not going to pay for it. Because you made the choice.

Now, those who don't have health care because of preexisting conditions who are working their brains out and can't make ends meet. They've done everything. They're playing by the rules, but they don't have the talent or they don't have the job or they don't have the aptitude so be able to make enough money to be able to afford health care because government has made it unaffordable for so many people. We're going to help those people. Why can't we get there? Because that's not the game they're playing in Washington. That's not what they're doing. And if Donald Trump wants to fulfill his promises, that's the conversation he should be having with the American people and with the GOP. He should be excoriating both sides.

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...

WARNING: Here's who's REALLY behind 'spooky, right-wing' extremism

Over the past year, the left has tried to paint conservatives as "spooky, right-wing" extremists who want to destroy the nation. But true conservatives know that's not true. However, there is a dangerous global movement that fits this "spooky" definition — masquerading as "right-wing" — and it's gaining momentum. It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," author and award-winning expert on the radical right Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum joined Glenn to define Traditionalism and explain why it's exactly how the left wants to paint conservatives — but that couldn't be further from the truth.

Teitelbaum said Traditionalism is the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century" in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent." It's a bizarre story, involving Steve Bannon, Hinduism, Hitler, mysticism, Aleksandr Dugin, the Constitution, and tons and tons of money.
