GLENN BECK ON NPR: TRUMP IS NOT A CONSERVATIVE

by TONY LEE | Breitbart  |  published on August 23, 2015

On Saturday, Glenn Beck went on left-leaning NPR and said he did not think Donald Trump is a conservative.

Beck acknowledged that he has a lot of listeners who believe he is wrong about Trump, but Beck insisted, “it’s hard to say you espouse conservative principals and small-government principals when you are saying that you think [the] Canadian health care system works and is wonderful.”

When asked if Trump, who is leading in every state and national poll, is “right or wrong on immigration,” Beck, who used the border crisis as an opportunity to bash conservatives, simply replied that he did not believe that Trump was “anti-immigrant or anti-Mexican or [anti] Hispanic in any way.”

    obamacare is NOT national healthcare. Canada has national healthcare. obamacare is a business whereby insurance companies have been given government protection to charge American working/employed taxpayers any mount of money they choose to, AND continue to raise that cost. In return for that extortion they demand ridiculous deductibles before they even consider if they will pay medical claims only if the insurer determines it was necessary…. True national healthcare would use tax dollars already connected to pay healthcare. Perhaps use money collected that raised payroll taxes when Bush era taxcuts ended. National healthcare would cover employed people (and their spouse-children) who pay taxes. If you don’t work AND pay taxes your not covered. Of course that would eliminate the middle man/insurance companies who helped write obamacare so we don’t have national healthcare. I don’t support obamacare. I would support National healthcare….like in Canada, Spain etc. So Donald Trump is NOT saying he supports obamacare.

      Then move to Canada or Spain! Oh, & when you have to wait 2 years to get an MRI or dialysis or Chemotherapy don’t come dragging your INCREDIBLY STUPID a$$ back to the U.S. to get treatment. Also Canada has about a 10nth of our population, you stupid crack, & they STILL have mile long waiting lists.
      Obamacare was designed to FAIL so brainless cracks like you would then whine for nationalized healthcare. As Gruber, Obamacare architect, & Obama said, you have to NUDGE them, the mindless masses like you, into giving the government complete & utter control of their lives.

        Why eould I move? I can exercise my right to vote next year. And hope Dr. Carson or Donald Trump comes in. By the way people under obamacare are waiting weeks for an appt w/ a doctor already! So at least national healthcare, WITHOUT insurance companies would cost me less….you can move if you like. United States of America has been my families country for over 200 years. Personally I wish government would have stayed out of healthcare. Fix immigration and they could.

        • The duck

          Oh cost less? National Health? Your life is not worth much then? Or did I get something wrong there?

          • Louise Goins

            National Healthcare can be paid for from taxes already collected-no increase in payroll taxes…then someone with a brain can include it when budgeting…probably cost substantially LESS than paying the overhead for the insurance companies now. As obamacare stands people are paying much higher premiums, outrageous deductibles, etc. So simply use money already collected to cover healthcare. Not to cover ins. premiums but to cover healthcare. And take medical decisions away from an insurance company. Unemployed people would still get medicaid if they qualify, retired people still get medicare. Insurance companies could sell supplements if they like. It is unreasonable for an insurance executive to make a high six figure income while telling a client/patient/taxpayer that a test will not be covered although the patients Dr. has ordered it. Medical insurance companies use most of the insurance premiums for high salaries for their employees, not for healthcare costs. So yes it would cost less.

            So we pay for our health care through taxes that are being collected now? No increase in taxes? Sounds great except for one thing. Government borrows money to operate on because our taxes do not cover the costs of government operations now? So the reality is government must then borrow more to pay for our health care. I do not see where that is costing us less. It would put us deeper into debt for sure and some day someone will have to pay for that at a very dear cost to their living standard. Should speed us to become a developing nation again. Hmmm Don’t think I want to go there either. Obama Care has us heading in that direction now. Got to have a better plan. Like free market place, pay off debt our national debt, then work on social issues when we can pay for them with our tax dollars. Every house hold has to exist or live within their budgets, and government is no less obligated. Hope you don’t like a higher tax rate also.

      The US healthcare wouldn’t be so costly if half of Mexico wasn’t standing on the door steps of every Emergency room in the country as well as the blacks with their stabbings and gun shots…. Mexico has brought over here numerous diseases which we have to treat.. making the insurance higher if you have any… but I read where some emergency rooms have had to close cause of the volumes of emergencies… where there were NON PAYING people…

      If “insurance companies have been given government protection to charge American working/employed taxpayers any mount of money they choose to”, then why aren’t they? Why have costs been relatively stable, or actually dropping a bit? Why haven’t employers been laying off workers? Remember, Obamacare was supposed to be a job killer and an economy killer?

    I agree. The first person I voted for was Carter, the very next was Reagan. I want someone who love our Country and is not trying to destroy it. Both established parties are the same. The Republicans had a mandate to stop Obama but bent over and gave Obama everything he wanted. I want my Country back, not a Islamic, communist State! I’ll vote for Trump if and when the time comes and I believe he is the best for America.

    Ironically, it is Republicans who are responsible for having done the most to destroy the American manufacturing base and put American workers in untenable positions. It is Republicans who have promoted international, globalist, economic policies and it is Republicans who are most frequently accused of having done so, despite the very notable and wealthy Democrats who have profited from the policies. Whether anyone running for office is really trustworthy to return America to its proper place and do justice to American citizens who have a right to expect that there will be jobs and work for them, is the task of the electorate to decide, perhaps, to its own peril. Seemingly, no one, especially, a business person, would be out to destroy himself or the country. So, if expertise and the wisdom and ability to get things done are what is necessary to get America back on track, we certainly need someone whose primary concern is not the plight of women concerning the alternatives of choice regarding the fertilization of the egg and whether or not to abort it. Let’s face it, the Democrats platform is unpalatable, at best. It is the same old, irrelevant crap that has no place in the politics of the nation. Women are not equal with men since they are different from men and this is a fact not to be decided or debated by the congress of the United States, to no conclusive purpose. The nation’s preoccupation with issues of sex and sexuality is a bad distraction, causal as it is, resulting in the treatment of the symptoms of it which are a consequential, cost factor. The Democratic championing of the rights associated with it are disgusting and repetitious to the point of nausea.
    The problems facing the country are much more important than the smokescreen issues which Democrats have used for more than forty years
    to win the votes of those whom they have proclaimed to be unrepresented or “disenfranchised.” They have won by championing the right to be wrong on a majority of the issues they have supported. The nation is paying for what it wants with the unaffordability of it.

      I’ll have to disagree with “Ironically, it is Republicans …” Much of the necessity of moving ‘overseas’ is the regulation and expense caused by those experts in EVERYTHING from global warming (now climate change because it wasn’t) to snail darter vs. Tellico, as well as EPA owning all rainwater to ocean avenues. How about illegal aliens requiring our ignoring our own laws to invade our country? How about foreign companies drilling in our Gulf waters, while U.S. companies aren’t able to get permission. I am NOT saying most repubs aren’t complicit, I am saying career politicians (red, blue, & independent) become drunk on their power and fewer work for the benefit of the country they supposedly represent, most work on seeing their “name in lights,” regardless of what it costs their employers (We, the people) .

        The problem with term limits is it puts more politicians on the retirement rolls the tax payer has to fund. Politicians contribute very little to their retirement fund over their working life of 6-8 years minimum to 50 years maximum or their timely demise then their beneficiaries get involved in the federal retirement and health care. But yeah might be less destructive.
