President Trump calls out the left's Medicare for all plan in scathing op-ed

You can pretty much take this to the bank: Obamacare will eventually get repealed, but it won't be the GOP leading the charge… it'll be the Democrats. At this point, I don't think the Left never really intended for The Affordable Care Act to actually live up to its name. Case in point. Ten years ago, Americans with employer-provided healthcare had an average deductible of around three hundred dollars. Oh but how far we've fallen. Average deductibles are now four times what they were a decade ago at nearly $1,400.

That's a 212% increase! Deductibles are growing at a rate eight times faster than wage growth, and 12 times faster than inflation. These aren't my numbers. They didn't come from the Heritage Foundation or Cato Institute. This is from the annual report from the Kaiser Family Foundation. Did I mention they're based behind the progressive iron curtain in Californiastan? Did I also mention that Kaiser helped spin the Left's talking points when Democrats were trying to pass The Affordable Care Act?

Yesterday, President Trump wrote an op-ed in USA Today titled "Democrats 'Medicare for All' plan will demolish promises to seniors". He goes on to explain how the plan would cost an insane $32.6 trillion during its first 10 years. The president continued by slamming the Left's open border policies and calling out their Socialist policies. USA Today's tweet pointing to Trump's op-ed read:

Democrats want to outlaw private health care plans, taking away freedom to choose plans while letting anyone cross our border. We must win this.

Well apparently Jim Acosta from CNN took major beef with this. He fired back at both the president and USA Today in a little tweet of his own:

This column may break the record for the number of falsehoods from a President ever published in a newspaper op-ed. Just this tweet alone is false - "outlaw private health care plans" and "letting anyone cross our border" Huh? Fact check: false and false. Come on USA Today.

I know I shouldn't expect journalists these days to do any kind of actual journalism. I mean that's just crazy talk. But it's kind of funny - well actually it's really sad - that it's painfully obvious that journalists like Acosta haven't even read the Left's proposal on Medicare For All. H.R. 676 has one hundred and twenty-three Democrat cosponsors. That's more than half of House Democrats. It reads:

It shall be unlawful for a private health insurer to sell health insurance coverage that duplicates the benefits provided under this Act.

The replacement for Obamacare is coming, and it's so radical that the Left-leaning media can't even believe it. The Affordable Care Act was a setup. If the Left takes full control in 2020, we'll see what they really had in mind all along.

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."
