Here’s What Government-Designed Health Care Does to Americans

Too many Americans have been forced to buy health care that costs more than they can afford – thanks to the “Affordable” Care Act. Some are opting to pay for doctor’s visits out of pocket and foot the bill for the Obamacare mandate penalty to save money.

“Welcome to the beautiful health care designed by our government,” Glenn said. “In 2016, 6.5 million of us here in this country in order to comply with the individual mandate in Obamacare decided just to pay the penalty instead of buying health care.”

Senate Republicans have added a provision repealing the individual mandate into their plan for tax reform that would be a step forward – but can they actually get it done?

GLENN: Susan had a decision to make. It's a decision that millions of Americans are making. She could buy health care for her and her husband or not. It was a difficult decision because both options would hurt them financially. She calculated she would have to spend more than $12,000, including premiums of nearly $500 a month and a 6,850-dollar deductible, to get anything beyond preventive benefits from the cheapest exchange plan available through the, quote, Affordable Care Act. It wasn't affordable for her.

That was a great deal more than paying the 1,500-dollar tax penalty. So Susan decided to take her chance and not buy health care. Instead, she would pay for her family's doctor visits out of pocket. And if something catastrophic were to happen, she said, I feel like it's just better to die. Welcome to the beautiful health care designed by our government.

Maybe a little dramatic, but Susan's situation is not unique. In 2016, 16.5 million of us, here in this country, in order to comply with the individual mandate in Obamacare, decided just to pay the penalty instead of buying health care.

That's craziness. The individual mandate has been unconstitutional. It's a nightmare since it was signed into law. But today, there is hope that we can forget this whole mandate fever dream for good.

The Senate Republicans have add the repeal of the individual mandate to their tax reform plan, which is a step in the right direction.

But will they do it, and will everybody vote for it in the Senate? Here's the one rule of thumb they really need to know: stopping unconstitutional laws and not starting new unconstitutional laws. Pretty good rule of thumb for this administration.

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.
