Massachusetts: 26% Consider State’s Health Care Reform a Success

GLENN: 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. Okay, so here are the stats on healthcare. Remember, Romney healthcare, well, they didn't like it the way Romney put it in but then the Democrats could get in there and fix things and we've been able to insure everybody, which they haven't been able to do. They have just built another layer of bureaucracy. Now, once you get this bridge, it's not going to destroy the healthcare, it's not going to make your waiting time worse, you are still going to be able to keep your doctor. Have you noticed the difference between the language on the president? He used to say you're going to be able to keep your old doctor. Now he's saying we want you to be able to keep your own doctor. Have you noticed that?

STU: No, I haven't noticed that. Really?

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Listen to him. You'll be able to keep your own doctor. "Look, universal healthcare. We want you to be able to keep your own doctor." Subtle difference.

STU: I haven't noticed that.

GLENN: Gigantic difference. So anyway, so what's happening? According to the people, they just took a Rasmussen poll in Massachusetts and said, what do you think about healthcare? Stu, break it down.

STU: 26% of people in Massachusetts believe the reform has been a success.

GLENN: How many?

STU: 26%.

GLENN: 26%.

STU: Now, this is the best statistic for universal healthcare in this entire poll. So I'm leading with it. It's the best one for them.

GLENN: Wow.

STU: 26% believe that it has been a success. 37% believe it has been a failure and a bunch of people are undecided on it at this point. As we move down the chart, they start talking about more affordable or less affordable. Now remember this is the plug for universal healthcare. This is

GLENN: Make it more affordable. It's got to be more affordable or it's no good. Remember, the big push by Obama now is we are on an unsustainable path. Stu, did you see the budget? Did you see the thing I sent you from the GAO yesterday?

STU: You did, but I don't have my computer to open it yet.

GLENN: You haven't seen it? You haven't read it?

STU: Am I going to like it?

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. We'll break it down while we're on vacation. We're going to go on vacation tomorrow and then we'll be back and we'll break it down. The budget, the CBO is saying unsustainable, unsustainable. Warning, Will Robinson. But that is the big push from Obama. It's unsustainable at this we've got to lower the cost of healthcare. Do people in Massachusetts believe that the best healthcare system in the country is lowering the cost of healthcare.

STU: 21% say it's more affordable now. 27% say it's less affordable now. Now, what's interesting is you go deeper into the demographics and you find there's only one group who actually finds it more affordable by pay scale.

GLENN: Hmmm. Which pay scale would that be?

STU: Wouldn't it be the poor, Glenn?

GLENN: No.

STU: Shockingly enough, no. 29% of the poor say that the healthcare reforms have made healthcare less affordable, to 27% who say it's more affordable. The only group who has a positive answer to that question saying that overall it's been more affordable are people who make over $100,000 per year. Everyone else says the exact opposite, that either it's right close to equal or it's made it less affordable.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

STU: It is unbelievable. But that again we're leading with the best stuff for universal healthcare and now we get to the final question.

GLENN: All right, all right.

STU: The quality of your healthcare.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Has it become better?

GLENN: It will never affect it. We want you to have your own doctor.

STU: It's going to be either the same or it's going to improve it, right?

GLENN: Absolutely. It's not going to get worse. How could it?

STU: Certainly Barack Obama isn't running on a plan that he would admit makes healthcare worse, right?

GLENN: No.

STU: He is saying that it's going to improve it.

GLENN: It has to.

STU: Massachusetts has been living under it and what they found is 10 big percent of people have found that it's increased the quality of the healthcare. The problem with that, three times the amount of people, now 29%, say it has made the quality worse. But it goes further.

GLENN: It gets better for universal healthcare?

STU: No. No, it does not. In fact, it goes to again we go to, if you have children at home, okay, 32% say that the quality has become worse. 5% say the quality has become better. Now you go on again think about that. That's the most important demographic, isn't it? You go on to the income again which is to me really fascinating is that the poor once again are saying that their quality these are people who are making under $20,000 a year in Massachusetts, okay? They are about split. Actually more people, 26 to 25 say the quality has become worse. But the other targets here are the people between 20 and 60,000. These are the middle class people. Remember, the poor poor people who are making $3,000 a year might be able to get on the government program before. The people that are going to be helped here, the people making $20,000 to $60,000. Between $20,000 and $40,000, 23% to 9% say the quality has become worse. And then you go to $40,000 to $60,000 it's 29 to 8 the quality has become worse. And as you go up the scale, it gets more and more embarrassing. Between $60,000 and $75,000. By a count of 51 3% they are saying the quality's become worse. The next income scale up, it's 39 to 2%, and over $100,000 even they will admit, 21% to 7% say the quality has become worse. Now, these are people who could obviously find, they can go to a more expensive doctor, they can have more wider array of things that are covered by their healthcare insurance.

GLENN: So in other words, everyone over $20,000.

STU: It's a complete blowout.

GLENN: It's a complete blowout.

STU: But even those under $20,000 still think slightly it's made healthcare worse. That means everyone, in every income scale, believes it's made healthcare worse. It's close with the poor. Everyone else not even remotely close. This is the program that they are trying to implement. And again we've talked about it because they were distracting us, "Let's talk about healthcare" while cap and trade is coming. Well, cap and trade went through the house and they are going to start bringing up healthcare next and probably trying to distract us with something else. These are the effects of this program and again this was a good program as far as universal healthcare programs go. Mitt Romney had a big hand in shaking this to be more sensible with Barack Obama.

GLENN: Here's what's going to happen. You are going to have a reshaping of the cap and trade and it's going to get ready to go through the Senate. They now is a filibuster proof 60 votes in the Senate. There's no chance this isn't going to be passed in some form or another for cap and trade. You've got to do everything you can. Call your Democratic senators and tell them. Actively campaign. You have no idea what's coming. You call them every single day. I actually had somebody tell me that people stand at the fax machines. I didn't know people had fax machines. You e mail them, you call them. You wear them out because that's what they're doing to you. They are trying to wear you out. Wear them out. You don't pass that. At the same time that's going through the Senate, you watch. Healthcare will go through the house because they are going to try to wear you out. Prepare. Prepare. Connect. Get as much information as you can to your friends. Please go out. Borrow it from a friend or buy one yourself and then pass it on to a friend. Common Sense, available everywhere. Read it this holiday weekend and pass it on.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
