These numbers PROVE Americans are SICK & TIRED of far-left states

In 2021, California lost over 330 THOUSAND residents…and with those residents, the Golden State lost over 29 billion dollars in income too. The numbers are not much better for New York, Massachusetts, or New Jersey, either. But it wasn’t just blue states experiencing massive changes. In this clip, Glenn unveils the SHOCKING statistics that prove Americans are sick & tired of far-left states, and they’re looking for other places to live that are much more favorable to freedom…


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: All right. Let me talk to you a little bit about what's happening. Stu, you have an analytical mind. I don't. I don't think like you.

You think numbers. See if you can figure this out. The IRS migration data, released last week, shows that California lost more residents than any other state.

Net loss of nearly 332,000 people, and more than 29 billion dollars, in income.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Okay? The state with the second largest population loss, is New York, which saw a loss of 262,000 residents and $24.5 billion in income.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: What time will the train pull into the station?

Gee, I can't figure this out.

Illinois is the other, with the loss of 105,000 people and 10.8 billion.

STU: Weird.

GLENN: Okay?

STU: Hmm. And what's the time period? Does it give you the time period on this? 2019 for COVID type of number?

GLENN: No. I think it's -- no. It -- 2021.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Yeah. 2021.

STU: Okay. That sounds like a -- certainly, people reacting to the restrictions is a good -- I would guess a good chunk of that.

GLENN: Yeah. Sure. Sure.

STU: Massachusetts, for example, had a net loss of 44,000 people. $4.3 billion in income. Louisiana lost 28,500. And $861 million in income.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: New Jersey, which lost fewer people. 26,000, lost a total of $4.87.

No. $3.8 billion less in income.

So it seems as though, the high tax in your face states.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Are not appealing to those people who have the ability to get away from them.

STU: Yeah. And I would add on to that, the states that decided to control every aspect of your life, during the pandemic as well.

Right? So if you, let's say, for example, try to shut down businesses. Control people's movement.

Force them to wear masks, and take medication. They may or may not want to have taken.

And also, try to make them pay exorbitant prices for that privilege. Maybe those people aren't going to stay anymore. It's a crazy idea.

GLENN: Now, here's another crazy idea.

In California, I mean, they're mixing up some powerful medicine. You know, to help their state.

Californians, the state democratic law makers have introduced a bill, that would impose a wealth tax. Okay?

Now, listen to this. A wealth tax on the wealthiest residents. Including for several years after you move from the state.

STU: I'm sorry. Now. You're getting a wealth tax, they pay to California. Even though, you don't live in California.

GLENN: Even though, you don't live in California. If you lived in California, moved away, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter.

They will still tax you for several years. I don't know legally, how could they can do that.

STU: I don't think they could. And also, wealth tax is completely unconstitutional federally. Whether they could get away with it at a state level, I'm not sure.

But you're not allowed to do that federally. Which is, of course, something that Elizabeth Warren, still, you know, over and over and over again, props up there, as some possibility to solve all of our problems.

GLENN: Yeah. Now, here is the big winner. The big winner, of course, say it with me. North Dakota.

Florida, 255,834 residents. 39.19 billion dollars coming into the state.

Texas, number two, 174,866 with 10.9 billion dollars. North Carolina, 76,000, and almost 5 billion dollars. South Carolina, just over 4 billion.

The same with Tennessee, 4.5 billion.

STU: It's legitimately incredible. It was all blue states except one. That people are moving out of. And all red states, that they were moving into.

But what could be the pattern here?

I don't know. What could it be? And, by the way, I think Louisiana was the one state that people were moving out of. It was also one of the hardest hit states, because of COVID.

I mean, that was really did have a rough.

GLENN: Louisiana always has a rough go of it.

STU: Especially places like New Orleans. Which you wouldn't necessarily associate with red state policies.

You know, that's really where they get hammered by that.

GLENN: Any place where you have to say. And this goes for parts of Florida. Any place that you have to say, kids, don't reach into the bushes. Is a problem.


I mean, where is Johnnie. I don't know. I just saw him reaching into the bush.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Giant mouth opened up and ate him. Yeah, I think that's a problem.

STU: It could happen at any time.

GLENN: Yeah, I associate that more with Louisiana. Maybe unfairly.

STU: Well, it's on the Louisiana state flag. There's a child being eaten by something in the bush. They don't realize that. It's not necessarily the best commercial for the --

GLENN: Right. I don't know if I would have that on my state flag.

STU: This happens all the time. Let's show people what's going on.

GLENN: Yeah, so there's something else here. Jeffrey Epstein. His little black book.

Now, may I ask, if this wasn't about the world's most powerful people, it was about you and me.

Going to see, you know, teenage slaves, for sex.

STU: To be frowned upon, I just.

GLENN: It would be frowned upon. And I just we all would be exposed.

Don't you think? And the press would lead the way.

STU: I mean, this they -- they came after the guy who did Subway commercials. Right? You know, they -- if it was a conservative, of any prominence, they would make sure, you knew about it.

GLENN: Yeah. Right.

So Jeffrey Epstein met with the Obama White House council, the Rothschilds.

I do not know of all of them, but probably the spooky.

STU: The Koch Brothers. You can't meet with all of them. There's always both of them.

GLENN: There's only two?

STU: Only one now. The other one died.

GLENN: That's what they want you to believe.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: He died. Uh-huh. Anyway, and then our --

STU: Just like Jeffrey Epstein.

GLENN: And then our CIA director. Now, let me just -- I want to take you down just for a second. Okay. I know you had a restful week. I know you were like, hey, I'm good.

And I didn't even watch Chuck Todd. And I would say to you, no one watches Chuck Todd.

I think we're getting to the place, to where we can just get a transcript from a bot. And even the bot is saying, why do I have to watch Chuck Todd?

I mean, I'm not human, but is this cruel. Anyway, Chuck Todd, he had Vivek Ramaswamy on.

And Chuck was saying. Well, you know, the FBI. You want to abolish the FBI.

And you want to replace it with a new FBI.

Well, I don't know about replacing it with a new FBI. But, yeah, abolishing the FBI.

Who does this not sound good to at this point?

STU: The left used to always love it. Always love it. They were the ones pitching it all the time.

GLENN: Right. So he goes on, and says, the problem is, there's people in there, working there for decades.

So what I say, if the US president and I can't work for the federal government for more than eight years, which I think is a good thing, then none of the bureaucrats reporting to the president should either.

Okay. Well, that was crazy. That went over his head.

All right. Let me talk you back to Epstein for just a second.

Because I think it illustrates his point really well. We'll do that in 60 seconds. Sometimes, the value of a product or service relies heavily on the values of the company, that is producing that product or service.

And your mobile carrier is no exception to this rule. Aren't you tired of having to pay through the nose, for phone service. All the while that your money could be, and in some cases, definitely is, going to leftist causes that you don't support at all?

Every time you support, for instance, Verizon mobile, they're taking some of your money, and it is going to Planned Parenthood.

What are we doing? America's only Christian conservative wireless provider. Offers dependable, nationwide coverage on all three major networks. So you can get the best possible service in your area, but aren't simultaneously helping fund woke propaganda, by spending your money with those big mobile companies. When you switch to Patriot Mobile, you choose to support free speech. And religious freedom and sanctity of life. First responders are veterans. Their 100 percent US-based customer service team will make switching incredibly fast and easy.

Do yourself -- do our country a favor. Make the switch today. Save money and stand with the people who are standing with you.

Or 878PATRIOT. 878PATRIOT. Offer code is Beck. Ten-second station ID.
Okay. So in the calendar. In the little black book of Jeffrey Epstein, it was made available last week. A new player in the saga was revealed. And it was the CIA director William Burns.

Now, Burns, his last job in government, before taking the helm of the CIA was Deputy Secretary of State from 2011, 2014.

He worked for Hillary Clinton. Now, the CIA spokesperson was asked, hey, what's the deal with him and Epstein's little black book?

And this is what the CIA spokesperson said, well, I'll tell you, but I'd have to kill you.

No, they said, Mr. Burns met with Epstein, about a decade ago.

Listen to that. He met with him, but it was a decade ago. Well, if they were talking about young girls and having sex, I don't care how long ago it was.

But he met with him, about a decade ago, as he was preparing to leave government service.

The director did not know anything about him. Other than, that he was introduced as an expert in the financial services secretary, or sector. And offered general advice to the transition, to the private sector.

So apparently, Epstein was a trusted career counselor.

Huh! In reality, Burns met with Epstein, at least once in Washington, DC, shortly before he left the State Department. And then two other times, in New York City, at his penthouse, where Bill Gates would hang out.

All of this reported to the Wall Street Journal.

Now, does anyone have a hard time believing the framing here. That somebody like Burns at his level took a random meeting, and didn't really know anything about him?

And then took two other random meetings with a guy at his house. Really?

Because that doesn't -- hmm.

One random meeting, maybe. But I will tell you, just to get on -- I'm not somebody that was, you know, the secretary of state level.

I'm just an alcoholic DJ, getting somebody on my schedule is really difficult.

Just having some random guy, who I'm going to meet. That doesn't happen very often in my schedule. Going three times? Randomly! To somebody I don't really know much about?

It never happens. It never happens. And I'm thinking, if you're going to be the head of the CIA, if you're doing that and the third time, you still don't know who this guy is, you shouldn't be the head of the CIA.

STU: Did they check backgrounds for these people at all?

GLENN: I know my team does.

STU: But I'm saying, when you're head of the CIA, does that -- does anyone know your background?

GLENN: Right. Right. Right. So now you fast forward. Joe Biden is looking for somebody to head the CIA.

We're about to enter a proxy war with Russia in Ukraine. Bill burns! He's the guy, we'll put him in. You know, the guy who didn't know who Jeffrey Epstein was, for three solid meetings.

Wow. I don't. Hmm.

This is what Vivek is talking about. This is -- these career guys. You have to get out. Get them out of there. It's just a nest of bad things.

STU: And at the point, where you think, there's just too much corruption to try to fix it, because you can have an organization that has corruption in it and fix it and come back around. But like, it just seems like there's too much here.

GLENN: No. It is. It is.

Have you tried unplugging it, and plugging it back in.

That's the only thing we haven't tried. We've tried everything else. Unplug it, and plug it back in.

Everything needs to be shut down and rebooted. Back to original factory settings.

That's the key. We've got all this bad programming, that has been piling up and is making the system run like it was never designed to. And it's all breaking down.

Restore back to original factory settings. But you -- I love the press. They think. Well, you -- you just want to get rid of all the police. And the FBI.

Well, if the entire thing is corrupt, and maybe there's some good guys out there. I think at the local level, there probably are good guys.

I think it's mainly in Washington. But, yeah. I think we'll start the hiring process all over again.

Because we have to. Why is that so insane?

STU: I don't think it is. I think some people get rid of the FBI or the CIA, and think, well, wait a minute.

They do a lot of work that is important. And while, yes. I know they're corrupt.

Going after, you know, high level criminals. Violent gangs. Terrorists. All these things.

Still need to be done. They just don't need to be done, with the exact organization, the exact same way.

GLENN: So the FBI used to be the aid for the state. But now they're not.

They used to be. The FBI would say, you know, there's interstate crime going on. And the states will be like, you can nail these guys please? Because it's out of my state, in another state. So the FBI would do that. But they would assist, the local -- the states. And when they would arrest somebody, it wasn't the FBI, that got Bonnie and Clyde in Texas. It was the Rangers. Okay. It was the Texas Rangers. If they were going to get somebody, they would advise. They might even be there. But it was the state that did that. Now, they can roll in any way they want.

They don't have to call the state. They don't have to -- no. We never had a national police force.

And that's how they're being used now. It can't happen. It can't happen.

And if it means, we have to be without, the FBI, for I don't know. How long does it take to reboot?

It's a scary couple of minutes, I guess. When it's rebooting. You're like, okay. Okay. Hurry up. Hurry up.

You know, but is it any different what Windows does to you probably once a month?

No. No. No. Now it probably has to reset.

STU: Yeah. I think like you have to have a plan, to make sure the operations of the country that are important, not investigating the president over -- like, not the stuff that they've been doing lately.

But, I mean, the things that are actually important. Need to be potentially used for other areas.

And people resigned. But it needs -- a whole reimagining of this needs to occur.

GLENN: I don't think a reimagining.

STU: You don't think that there's any valid work done by the CIA and the FBI.

Like that's crucial to the country's security.

GLENN: Oh, no. I do. I do.

I mean, I don't need to reimagine it. I need to clean the corruption out.

STU: Yeah. I just that -- I think the structure needs to be reimagined completely. I don't think the way it's structured now. You will get this problem again.

GLENN: It is. Because it has way too much power. It has way too much power, and no real oversight. That's the problem.

So it's not really, in my view, it wasn't a reimagining. It's more of, how does the Constitution say these things work?

STU: Right. Okay. That's a reimagining for right now.

GLENN: Okay. You're right. You're right.

Why Conservatives Need 'Indoctrination Centers' | Liz Wheeler | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 196

Liz Wheeler, host of “The Liz Wheeler Show,” wants everyone to know that our children are being attacked by “forces of Marxism.” It’s NOT an exaggeration, and her new book, “Hide Your Children: Exposing the Marxists Behind the Attack on America’s Kids,” shows exactly how the far Left has the nation’s youngest citizens in its crosshairs — especially within America’s public schools. In this episode of “The Glenn Beck Podcast,” Wheeler joins Glenn to outline exactly where these attacks are taking place. Plus, they discuss why Planned Parenthood recently has become a major force in the trans rights movement, the woke villainization of white, Christian men, and the biggest misconceptions regarding AI (artificial intelligence).

GOP & Fox News Are DEAD: Glenn Beck Reacts to 'WORST' Presidential Debate | Glenn TV | Ep 307

Were there ANY winners at the second GOP presidential debate hosted by Fox Business and Univision? Glenn calls it “the worst debate of my lifetime” and reveals who was the REAL loser. BlazeTV hosts Stu Burguiere, Steve Deace, and Pay Gray join with their raw reactions to candidates North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, and former Vice President Mike Pence. All hosts agree the candidates failed to provide the conservative base with a real conversation, especially since many of the questions could have been asked by MSNBC. They also address the bizarre appearance of Fox moderator Dana Perino introducing Hillary Clinton at a recent Clinton Global Initiative Event. And what about the elephant NOT in the room? Was Donald Trump, who chose striking UAW workers over debating candidates, the only winner? With the leading GOP candidate facing 91 felony indictments, Steve Deace says, “This is how we do assassination in America today" and that it’s vital we choose a strong second-place nominee … FAST.

THESE are the parts of the government Glenn would LOVE to SHUT DOWN

THESE are the parts of the government Glenn would LOVE to SHUT DOWN

The United States is once again on the verge of a government shutdown, but should Congress cave and pass a continuing resolution to spend a lot more money and save us all ... or do we not need saving? Glenn reviews what would actually happen under a government shutdown and which agencies we should probably shut down anyways. Maybe we need "15 Days to Slow the Spending."


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: All right. So here's what we have to do this weekend, beginning tonight at midnight, if we don't sign the CR, and continuing resolution, which will give just a buttload of money. Just keep spending, exactly like you were spending last year, and no real accountability for any of it.

And we have to add some more for a war.

If we don't sign that by tonight, we have to shut the government down. Pat Gray is joining us.

What will you do as of 12:01, tonight.

PAT: Well, Stu gave me a suggestion. Because I was confused what I would do when I came in. What am I going to do? What was your suggestion that I should do? Now, this is in the eventuality, of a government shutdown.

GLENN: Okay. Are you well read enough, to give a recommendation?

STU: I mean, I would be concerned if I was going to be held to some legal standard.

GLENN: Right. Because you're not not an expert.

STU: I'm not an expert. But I was thinking you could continue living your life exactly the same way.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: Oh. Well, that's weird. What about the catastrophe that is -- what about that?

STU: Yeah. You would -- in this particular scenario. It's a fictional scenario, at some level.

GLENN: Okay. You're not a doctor. I think this is dangerous.

STU: What were the things you were going to do?

PAT: Do those things.

STU: The things you weren't going to do, don't do those.

PAT: It's crazy talk.

GLENN: All right. Hang on a second. Here's what's going to happen. Here's what's going to happen, okay? This is from the O and B. The Office of Management & Budget.

And they have now released the contingency plan.

So here's what's going to happen.

Now, please don't panic.

But economic indicators like the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the jobs report could -- could be delayed. This month.

PAT: Don't say that.


The federal mediation and conciliation service, which is charged with promoting labor management cooperation.

PAT: They'll still have that, right?

GLENN: Well, yes. Yes.

PAT: Good.

GLENN: However, they would have to cut back in its -- they won't close. But they'll have to cut back in some of the things they do.

And this all amid the strike with the auto workers.

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: What are the unions and the -- and the -- you know, the plants going to do? Without federal officials. They'll never be able to do anything.

PAT: No, they won't.

STU: And the thing is, we're so a used to high efficiency from the government. That when you lose that -- society --

PAT: It all goes sideways.

GLENN: Time to throw everyone a bone here, so you don't panic. The Federal Reserve activity will be unaffected. So they can still raise the interest rates on November 1st, no matter what happens.

PAT: Good.

STU: Great.

GLENN: The Federal Trade Commission, however, would stop the vast bulk of its competition and consumer protection investigation.

PAT: You can't be serious.

GLENN: I am serious.

They have -- the vast bulk of them, would just stop.

STU: So some of them would continue?

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

STU: But the vast bulk of them -- what percentage does that translate to?

GLENN: Don't know. Vast bulk.

This is from the O&B.

The Security and Exchange Commission, will not review or improve registrations from investment advisers, broker dealers, transfer agents, rating organizations. Investment companies. And municipal advisers.

They're not going to be able to -- if you try to register --

PAT: At the SECC.

GLENN: You won't -- you won't be able to do it.

STU: What is that? For a new fund? Or something? New rating. A two-week process probably?

PAT: What about the FDIC? Do you have information on the FDIC?

GLENN: No, they still do not have all of the -- they're scrambling for this information.

STU: They didn't see this coming.

GLENN: Now, again, to give you some good news.

The IRS has not released this plan for the potential shutdown. However, previous plans have said that the IRS would use funds from Joe Biden's Inflation Reduction Act.

STU: Oh, good.

GLENN: To keep employees paid and working.

PAT: Thank heaven.

GLENN: And the union representing the IRS workers are saying, new plans are being discussed, that would involve some furloughs. However, businesses and individuals, who requested that six-month extension for your tax return in April. You will still be required to file by April 16.

PAT: Well, of course, you would.

STU: Yeah. By what date? October 16th. I was going to say, I thought I had more time.

GLENN: Yeah. Emergency relief is going to be a problem. A shutdown would create increased risk, that FEMA, their relief funds, could be depleted.

So there's a risk, that their funds could be depleted. If large additional catastrophic disasters occur. During the shutdown.

STU: Now, of course, they would very easily pass funding for that almost immediately. But still, we should deny that that would happen.

We will deny that any of these people will get their money afterward.

We all know they will retroactively pay off all of this stuff anyway. It will be a vacation for many people.

PAT: They've already done that. For many people. So, yeah. Sure.

GLENN: For those of you concerned about, hey. What about my energy?

What about the environment?

This is what this Draconian shutdown is going to do.

PAT: Thank you, Republicans.

GLENN: The interior department, which does all of the designing for the Capitol building, and the interiors, and pick out the drapes.

Oh, no. Apparently, it doesn't do that. The department of interior, will retain limited discretion to use permits for energy projects on federal lands and waters, when user fees are attached.

So they'll -- they'll retain just limited discretion, to issue those permits. You know, for drilling, and things like that.

PAT: They don't have full discretion.

GLENN: No. Not during a shutdown.

PAT: During a shutdown. Oh, no.

GLENN: A funding lapse would paralyze -- to develop would require environmental analysis for all energy projects. Highways. And other infrastructure.

The EPA, may be able to continue some IRA-funded activities.

As well as other attempted works such as settlement-funded cleanup at some Superfund sites.

PAT: Let's hope that is the case.

GLENN: Now. The White House is warning, most EPA led inspections at hazardous waste sites, as well as drinking water at chemical facilities, it's got to stop.

PAT: Oh, wow.

GLENN: So your drinking water. Could go completely -- it will stop.

PAT: It will turn to mud this weekend.

GLENN: Well, by Sunday. Maybe Monday.

The Energy Information Administration, which publishes snapshots of the US oil inventory.

It will continue to collect and publish data on schedule. But they say, at least initially.

At least initially. Our nuke sites are going to be maintained. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, however, will stop all licensing of new nuclear facilities.

PAT: Oh, there's so many of those going up too.

Because, I mean, we did the last one in 1978. And bang.

GLENN: This is going to stop.

PAT: Well, there's no new ones.

GLENN: But it will stop.

STU: This was the week. This was the week it would happen.

PAT: And now, thanks to you, MAGA Republicans.

GLENN: Right. Now transportation and travel.

Travelers could face delays as air traffic controllers and transportation security administration officers.

PAT: That will continue.

GLENN: Will be working without pay.

PAT: But without pay.

GLENN: Yeah. So people will --

PAT: I mean, they really are not. They will be paid. Just maybe not time.

GLENN: Right. Which is a hassle.

PAT: It is a hassle. I won't deny that.

GLENN: It is a hassle. However, Amtrak, they will keep transporting those 12 passengers. They will just keep going.

PAT: Is Ange going to continue to tell stories, about how many miles Joe Biden has traveled on the train.

Will he be there? Even in death, as he was when he told the story to Joe Biden?

GLENN: I don't know.

Now, passport and Visas will still be issued.

PAT: I thought those would be delayed. But they're not going to?

GLENN: Efforts to defend the nation and conduct ongoing military operations, will continue.

PAT: Right.

STU: That's good.

GLENN: Burials and tours, at Arlington National Cemetery would continue.

STU: Did anybody doubt, they would stop burying the bodies.

They'll just pile up, until we open up the government.

GLENN: COVID-19, response research including vaccine and therapeutic development by the US government will continue.

PAT: Will continue.

GLENN: The National Institute of Health, might have to postpone clinical trials for diseases like cancer or Alzheimer's, according to the White House. So this may throw him from solving cancer.

We were so close to him coming through with his promise of curing cancer, but it's the damn Republicans.

STU: We can actually check that at any point. If you go to,

GLENN: Can you check that real quick? We're really close.

STU: Has Joe Biden cured cancer?

No. Cancer still exists as of today.

GLENN: Food stamps for low income people. The disabled, and others could be delayed.

There's no excuse for that. There's no excuse for that.

That is just to trot out the downtrodden.

The people that just say, look at what's happening. If the IRS can stay open, food stamps can stay open. Social Security checks will be delivered. Applications for benefits processed. However, people will not be able to verify benefits or replace cards.

Most national parks will be closed. The Smithsonian and the National Gallery of Art may close.

PAT: Don't say that.

GLENN: Cemeteries. Monuments. Visitor centers. Worldwide housed under the American Battle Monuments submission, will close.

STU: So are they -- and you said the national parks will close.

That means that many of these open field areas, will -- will not be opened?

GLENN: Yeah. They will -- they will build some fences around those things.

STU: Are they -- we don't seem capable of building fences.

GLENN: They're closed.

But I will tell you, you know they're big on the blue.

They will just be -- I make sure you're out there.

And you enforce that law.

You have somebody coming into the national park.

We don't have bathrooms that are open.

No. What are they going to do, poop in the woods, what kind of animals do you think we are?

PAT: Well, we're animals that poop.

STU: Sometimes -- sometimes that works. At least for many, many centuries.

The Capitol Police will not get paid under this.

PAT: What!

STU: They will -- they will --

PAT: They're under assault again. Just as they were during the insurrection.

STU: By the same people. The extreme MAGA Republicans.

PAT: You're exactly right.

By the same people.

STU: Now they'll get their number later. But for now, they won't get paid.

Except, for them. Unlike thousands and thousands of other federal workers, they actually will still have to do a job.

Most of the federal workers that will get all their money and then not have to do their job for however long this takes.

Which is a terrible, terrible --

GLENN: Just -- I -- I am in. I am in.

I mean, I think we should take a vote, who wants to open it back up?

I think 15 days, to slow the curve of spending. Fifteen days. Let's just do that.

Let's meet again in 15 days. And see if we can open the government up.

STU: We probably --

GLENN: Well, we might. We might.

Fifteen days, to slow the curve of spending.

PAT: And then after that, 30 days are up. After 15, then the 30. We might need another 18 bucks after that.

GLENN: Well, I don't know -- I don't know if the government will survive that.

You know, it may not survive that. Of course, the American people did it for a year.

STU: Yeah, and they don't care about them surviving.

GLENN: No. Nobody really cared about them surviving.

STU: Can I also say too, we talk about these big government cuts that we should do. We think there are things to do, to make the government smaller, and more like it was supposed to be. You know, a limited government.

GLENN: Yeah. We're not talking about any of those, I want you to know.

STU: But maybe we are. You know, haven't they unintentionally identified all the cuts here. Haven't they just said, hey, whatever we're going to just stop doing, the unnecessary parts of the government that can just shut down.

GLENN: You mean those nonessential?

STU: Yeah. The nonessential stuff, we stop doing. And the essential stuff, we stop doing. And we'll go from there. We'll talk about, maybe we need to add this back in. Maybe we can get rid of this other thing.

But isn't that a good starting point? Whatever you say is nonessential, I promise you we should not be doing it.

GLENN: I'm not sure of that. I mean, you know, we're talking about --

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yeah.

We're talking about things like the interior department.

Just having limited discretion to issue permits.

STU: So there will be still issuing permits. But they will have limited vegetation.

Maybe we shouldn't be doing so much permitting. Maybe people should be able to do a lot of the things they want to do.

But if there are certain needs for certain permits. Then the limited permitting might just cover that.

GLENN: Well, you go ahead. While we're all drinking poison by next Wednesday.

Just from our tap, from our homes. While sludge, nuclear waste.

Syringes are pouring out from our kitchen sink.

PAT: So syringes might pour out of our taps?

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

STU: How do they get around the curves?

GLENN: Are you an expert?

STU: No.

GLENN: Are you a doctor?

STU: I'm not a doctor.

GLENN: I am. Let's move on. Very dangerous.

Keep going, Republicans. Keep going.

Do not buckle.
