Liberal logic on health care: Your money belongs to other people

The GOP passed a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare in the House Thursday.

A liberal talking point has been that the bill is a gigantic “transfer of wealth” because it involves tax cuts. Glenn Beck and the guys talked about the twisted logic of saying that the government letting you keep your own money amounts to a transfer of wealth on Thursday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”

“They didn’t say that when they took the money from people who were working,” Glenn noted.

Glenn lamented feckless Republicans who lack the principles to make real changes and instead settle for incremental gains.

Congress reached a deal on the health care bill through a series of compromises. Some moderate lawmakers were won over by an amendment to spend $8 billion on high-risk pools and coverage for people with pre-existing conditions, while the conservative House Freedom Caucus was persuaded by an amendment that allows states to apply for waivers to certain Affordable Care Act provisions. Known as the MacArthur amendment, the provision would let states apply for waivers to be exempt from Obamacare’s ban on insurers charging higher premiums for those with pre-existing conditions.
