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You can pretty much take this to the bank: Obamacare will eventually get repealed, but it won't be the GOP leading the charge… it'll be the Democrats.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

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
