GLENN: 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. Let's go to Beth. Hello, Beth, you're on the Glenn Beck program.
CALLER: Hi, how are you?
GLENN: I'm good, how are you?
CALLER: I'm fine. I know that you're coming to the Villages in Florida, and I plan on seeing you.
CALLER: And I hope I can get you to autograph my book Arguing With Idiots because I think I'm an expert now. I actually spoke with Alan Grayson, and he left the room.
GLENN: What happened?
GLENN: What happened?
CALLER: Well, it was rather interesting. I had been to Washington D.C. on September the 12th, and I also came back on November the 5th. And usually do not catch the congressmen in their offices. Usually just leave a note and if you want to, you leave a letter, you sign in on a log. And while I was there, he just happened to come inside the room, and I think it was a staged situation because he had two or three gentlemen there that worked for him with cameras. And he asked how he could help and I said, I would like to talk to him about the healthcare bill. So he was very nice in the beginning and he sat down to go over the healthcare bill with me, and the first thing he wanted to do I actually invited several people in from the hallway because they were looking into the room and did not know what was going on and I told them they could come in, also. And he wanted to start off the conversation with what the government would be giving us, and he used the word "Giving" at least three times. And I told him that the government was not giving us anything, that the taxpayers were paying for it. He wanted to tell me I was wrong.
PAT: Oh, my gosh.
GLENN: How wait, wait, wait. How were you wrong? The taxpayers are paying for it.
CALLER: He said that
GLENN: Who is paying for it? Magic fairy money pulling it out of Barney Frank's pants?
CALLER: Probably from what they've already looted us out of money anyway.
GLENN: You know, the American taxpayers' wallets are almost empty. I guess we should start going after maybe Charlie Rangel's pants.
PAT: Does he not understand the concept that deficit neutral, I mean, even if you buy into that concept, it's not the same as nobody pays. It costs $1.3 trillion. Somebody pays.
CALLER: He told myself and the other people in the room that it would pay for itself within ten years.
GLENN: Really? Does it have a job?
CALLER: (Laughing). And he also wanted to say that the pharmaceutical companies would be paying for it. And again I told him that wasn't the case. Well, he switched gears to shut me up. So when I got another chance to ask him and thank God for you and people out there that put information out about the healthcare bill and everything else that's going on. You're educating us.
CALLER: And I just happened to have a list, a reading guide to Pelosi's health reform bill, and it had the page numbers and the situations going on with it.
CALLER: So I then asked him about illegal immigrants being covered. And he said that on Page 642 it stated that illegal immigrants would not be covered. And when I asked him if everybody would be IDed when they went in for healthcare, he said of course not. So I stated then they will be covered. Again he switched gears. The final thing that I asked that set him off and caused him just to go crazy was whenever I asked about the healthcare coverage and congress being covered by it. And I asked him if he and his family would have the same exact healthcare coverage that they were expecting the rest of the Americans to have. He started spinning the truth and he said that he is already covered with what you people consider socialized medicine and will be. When I caught him spinning the truth, I asked him the question again, and I was very, very specific in what I asked, and I made sure I asked him the exact same coverage, without the public option. And he said yes. So I asked him if he would mind signing the back of a piece of paper. I flipped my notes over, asked him if he would write that out and put it, sign his name to it. He went crazy. He demanded that I leave his office, started screaming and yelling at me.
GLENN: Good for you.
CALLER: And yes. But I did question with boldness. Thank you for that. And I said I didn't deserve to leave because I didn't do anything but ask a question. He told me that I would either leave or he would leave. He got up and left the room and slammed the door on us all.
CALLER: And when he came back home, checked his website, he had a note to people about Grayson welcomes healthcare protestors. He claimed that we all became unruly and threatening and even said he got a death threat which did not happen.
GLENN: You know what? I have to tell you it is unbelievable. You know, Barack Obama's arm, political arm said those very things, that they have been physically threatened, they have been physically threatened and even roughed up. I'd like to see where they have been roughed up. Show me that evidence. And if you want to see threats, you want to see death threats? I invite you, White House, to read my mail.
