Glenn Beck: Truth About Health Care Costs




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

Tonight, I want to talk to you a little bit about the truth. It's actually a pretty simple concept. Conformity with fact or reality -- the truth.

But Washington has trouble grasping that whole idea. They'll tell you that we're really not even news, that you should read "The Huffington Post" or whatever.

Instead, over there, they are spilling out garbage like saying the trillion dollar health care plan is reducing cost.

Don't take my word for it. I don't ever want you to take my word for it. I want you to look at the facts. I need you to decide who's telling the truth. Your children need you to decide that.

We told you many times the trillion-dollar plan will not save money. And the trillion-dollar plan is not $1 trillion plan. I can't believe that we have to actually argue that spending $1 trillion, that it's not a cost reduction, but I digress.

Last week, the administration celebrated the Medicare Trustees report as evidence that Obamacare saved Medicare and the media did their job and cheerfully they just reported the news.

But they all kind of forgot to mention one little dissenting opinion, actually included in the report from the "oh, so, biased" chief of Medicare actuary. He's Richard Foster. He's held that post now for 15 years.

The truth -- as the economic site e21 points out -- if you take the projected Medicare expenses for 2080 and compare to what Foster says expenses will really look like, it's 68 percent higher.

CMS summed up their estimates like this: "The final projection showing in this report for Medicare do not represent a reasonable expectation for actual program operations in either the short range or the long range.

Don't take my word for it. I encourage you to review the illustrated alternative projections that are based on more sustainable assumptions for physician and other Medicare price updates.

There you go. This is from the same report touted by the administration. What happens? The administration just tears it up and the press ignores it.

This is unprecedented. Usually, actuaries just sign off on the estimates. Foster denounced them.

But, again, don't take it from me. Don't wait for the media to report on Foster's comments either. Read the full report yourself at GlennBeck.com and decide for yourself who is telling the truth.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
