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You can pretty much take this to the bank: Obamacare will eventually get repealed, but it won't be the GOP leading the charge… it'll be the Democrats.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

As politicians and the mainstream media continue to insist that America is divided and at each other's throats, Dr. Ben Carson has a different message. He joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to discuss his time in the Trump administration and how we move forward and heal America. Overall, he says, we must realize "Americans are NOT each other's enemies."

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.
