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You can pretty much take this to the bank: Obamacare will eventually get repealed, but it won't be the GOP leading the charge… it'll be the Democrats.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.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
