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.

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.
