Glenn Beck: Who's Telling the Truth About Health Care?





Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

If we're going to restore the country — to "fix" the problems we have — first and foremost we must be grounded in truth. The lies this administration are putting forth are piling up — almost as much as the flies. Here are just a few quick examples:

President Obama "rejected" the notion that the new health care bill was a "tax increase":

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS, ABC NEWS: Merriam Webster's Dictionary: Tax — "a charge, usually of money, imposed by authority on persons or property for public purposes."

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: George, the fact that you looked up Merriam's Dictionary, the definition of tax increase, indicates to me that you're stretching a little bit right now.

STEPHANOPOULOS: But your critics say it is a tax increase.

OBAMA: My critics say everything is a tax increase. My critics say that I'm taking over every sector of the economy. You know that. Look, we can have a legitimate debate about whether or not we're going to have an individual mandate or not, but...

STEPHANOPOULOS: But you reject that it's a tax increase?

OBAMA: I absolutely reject that notion.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Now, in an effort to defend the health care bill in federal court, the main argument that the Obama administration is using is the Anti-Injunction Act, which restricts courts from interfering with government's ability to collect taxes: "No suit for the purpose of restraining the assessment or collection of any tax shall be maintained in any court by any person, whether or not such person is the person against whom such tax was assessed."

The president, speaking to religious leaders, called out anyone who was saying this health care bill would federally fund abortions:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

OBAMA: There are some folks out there who are, frankly, bearing false witness.... You've heard that this is all going to mean government funding of abortion. Not true."

(END AUDIO CLIP)

Notice the use of the term "bearing false witness." He's trying to shame them. We showed you last week how Pennsylvania was the first state getting federal funds ($160 million) for the mandated high-risk pool, which covers abortions. New Mexico was the second state, but quickly decided to drop elective abortion from its list of covered procedures. And now Maryland is getting $85 million in federal funds for its federally mandated high-risk insurance pool, which will cover abortions.

We told you this health care bill was first and foremost about redistribution of wealth. We were said to be "obstructers of progress" and getting in the way of reform. But two days after the bill passed, The New York Times headline read: "In Health Bill, Obama Attacks Wealth Inequality."

Then Obama appointed Donald Berwick to head Medicare and Medicaid:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

DONALD BERWICK: Excellent health care is by definition re-distributional.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

President Obama said the "truth" about health care reform was that you'd be able to keep your doctor:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS)

OBAMA: So here's the truth.... If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.

OBAMA: Under the reform we seek, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.

OBAMA: If you like your doctor, you can keep seeing your doctor.

OBAMA: Here's a guarantee that I've made.... If you've got a doctor that you like, you will be able to keep your doctor.

OBAMA: No matter how we reform health care, I intend to keep this promise: If you like your doctor, you'll be able to keep your doctor.

(END VIDEO CLIPS)

This weekend, under the headline "Insurers Push Plans That Limit Choice of Doctor," a New York Times article notes: "That could come as a surprise to many who remember the repeated assurances from President Obama and other officials that consumers would retain a variety of health-care choices."

We told you that these were coming and we were called crazy. We see how it played out. Now, there's more coming that I believe will change everything. We'll probably be called crazy again. But look at the record and ask yourself: Who's telling the truth?

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

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."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
